Teen dance classes: How To Find The Great Ones

  • Look for non-competitive dance classes for teens where everyone is friendly and you'll always feel welcome.
  • Look for a class where the teacher understands that the pace of the class has to be good for you.
  • Look for a dance studio with 'sprung' wood floors that protect feet and ankles. Avoid studios with regular wood floors and heaven forbid, run away from dance studios with concrete floors.
  • Look for accommodating school policies like a 100% money back guarantee if you don't like your class for any reason. Look for clean, bright sunlit studios.
  • Most importantly look for a school that has expert dance teachers who know how to give you personalized attention so and you'll feel great and progress faster.
