What Parents Think About The American Dance Institute?

Where Do Children Learn Confidence, Self Expression, Discipline & Passion?

Finding great jazz dance class kids.

  • Look for non-competitive dance classes where everyone is friendly including instructors, students and staff and your child will always feel welcome.
  • Find a jazz class for kids where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for your child and works hard to balance the needs of slow and fast learners.
  • A great jazz dance class is in a dance studio having specially designed 'sprung' wood floors that 'give' to protect  feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven forbid, run away from dance studios with concrete floors.
  • Why put up with hassle policies? You want accommodating school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason, ample make up opportunities, and flexible vs strict and formal rules. 
  • Most importantly look for a kid's jazz class that has expert dance teachers who deliver expressive dance instruction to keep children engaged and who know how to give your child personalized attention so they will progress faster and feel great class after class.
