Finding Great Kids Hip-Hop Dance Classes

You're looking for Kids Hip-Hop classes for your 7-14-year-old.  How do you find a great class? What questions do you ask?  Here is some advice. Here is some advice: 

  • Try to find non-competitive kids dance classes where everyone is friendly and your child will always feel welcome.
  • Look for a dance class where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for your child.
  • Insist on hip hop studios with specially designed 'sprung' dance floors that 'give' to protect kid's feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven tobid, run, run away from dance studios with concrete floors.
  • Look for accommodating dance school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason.
  • Most importantly look for a school that has expert hip-hop dance teachers who know how to give your child personalized attention so they will progress faster.
