What to Look for in Kids Dance Classes

What to Look for in Kids Dance Classes

When choosing a kids dance class there are a few things to keep in mind. Other than just looking at the teachers, it is important to also get informed about the studio at which your child will be dancing. We have put together a small list of things which will hopefully get you thinking about the right dance classes for your child.

The first and most important thing to think about, of course, is EXPERIENCED TEACHERS.

Hip Hop dance class, dance class, kids dance classesWhen first looking at a kids dance class, it is crucial to ask about the teachers. You want to know who will be handling your child's dancing education and in which ways they can impact your child. Ask about the instructor’s qualifications and what background they have with teaching. Did they take any early development classes? Do they have any type of teaching certification? It’s also good to ask if they have experience dealing with children in critical situations such as possessing a CPR certification that could save a child’s life. At Dance to EvOLvE we focus on hiring teachers who are not only amazing dancers but are also great with children and have a strong background. They also have to take our own Dance to EvOLvE courses every once in a while so that we can make sure our curriculum is unified and enforced. You may also want to think about getting to know their ideas about dance. Even though someone may be a great teacher, it is important that their ideas match up with what you want for your child.

What is their teaching philosophy?

Speaking of teachers ideas about dance, it’s a good idea to get to know the company philosophy. What are their core beliefs and what do they plan to instill in your child? Do they believe in large or small dance class sizes? You want to make sure that whatever they may be, those ideas are going to benefit you kid. Take a look at Dance to EvOLvE’s mission http://www.dancetoevolve.com/san-diego/about-evolve/mission/.  Our philosophy is “Your Choice.Our Knowledge. Their Fun!” It’s easy to find and we are held to it! Look for every studios mission statement or philosophy and make sure it’s easy to find!

Research the reputation of the studio and the classes

It never hurts to check out what other people have said about the dance studio you are looking into. Positive feedback is always good reassurement. One question to ask is how long has the dance studio been around and how well established are they? Usually studios with a good number of students shows that they have a solid client base and that the customers are happy with their kids dance class.  See what you can find about them on the internet and ask around to find out if any of your friends are familiar with them so your child can participate in the best dance class possible.

How are they about parental involvement?ballet dance class, dance class, dance class for kids

Something a lot of parents worry about is how open studios are to allowing parental involvement in the dance class? In most studios it just depends on the dancer’s ages. Younger dancers should usually be allowed to have parents in the room but for the older kids it can get loud and distracting when there are parents talking to one another or even talking to their kids during dance class. This can get frustrating so it’s generally better that for older kids, parents stay outside. However, there should be an area to watch the dancers and keep an eye on your kids if you decide to stay for class. Also, try and find dance classes that offer parent involvement once in a while so that you can come into class and actively see what your child is doing. At Dance to EvOLvE, there is a parent observation day where parents can come into class and watch their children learn new things during dance class. Parent’s love to come in and the audience is great for the dancers! Another important thing is communication between teachers and the parents. You as a parent never want to feel left in the dark about what is happening in class so make sure that there is open communication with teachers at the studio and that you can always call and talk to someone about any concerns you may have.

We hope that this guide was helpful to you when looking for kids dance classes. If there are any other suggestions you may have feel free to let us know! We love to hear the comments so that we can provide better help and more support for the rest of you!

What To Eat/Drink Before and After A Dance Class?

Posted by Brittany White on Nov 13, 2012 2:08:00 PM

Most dance classes (all ages) require a ton of energy, focus, and strength. Dancers and teachers need to be fueling their bodies in a healthy way to bust a move! Having a good snack before and after can really help with muscle soreness, cramps, energy levels, attention span, and comfort. You may want to adjust how much or little is consumed depending on how many classes are taken in a row and how physically demanding they are. This applies to little ones taking dance class as well!HealthyDance.jpg

What to avoid before dance class: 
-Candy: Sugar highs or crashes make focusing very difficult on anyone. (Be nice to your dance teacher too!) 
-Processed Foods: Food that is difficult to digest and low in protein sucks up energy.
-Big Meals: When dancers are too full it can make them lethargic, nauseous, or cramp easily.
-Soda: Soda is just bad in general because it can cause dehydration and add unnecessary sugar to the body.
-Fried/Fast Foods: These types of foods can easily cause an upset stomach, bloating, or gas while dancing.
-Not eating at all: Feeling hungry in the middle of dance class is distracting, hard on the body, and can cause fatigue. You want your dancer to pay attention in class to get your money's worth, right?
-Cigarettes: Do we need to say more? Smoking or second hand smoke makes it that much more difficult to breathe properly and is terrible for dancers in general. Ones endurance and overall health will suffer greatly from smoking or being exposed to it regularly. 

*Be careful with energy drinks, sports bars, and sport drinks. There is a huge stereotype that these are needed for exercise but they are completely overused and not usually necessary. Many of them are highly processed, difficult for the body to digest, and loaded with sugar. Check the nutrition labels to find the healthy and natural options.

What dancers should eat or drink before dance class:
-Protein: Protein provides the body with energy that it needs and can be filling in small amounts without making the dancer feel too full. 
-Fruits/Veggies: These can be light, healthy snacks to give you just what you need to get through dance class. Try mixing them with a little dairy or protein for more energy.
-Whole Grains: Good carbs help fuel the body for long periods of time.
- Water: Drink plain old water before, during, and after class to avoid dehydration and fatigue. 
-Potassium: Potassium can help with cramping and muscle soreness if the dancer is really pushing their body hard. 

*Great Examples: peanut butter and banana, apple with cheese, half of a tuna sandwich, veggies with a yogurt dip, avocado on wheat toast, a small smoothie...

What to eat or drink after dance class:
-Water: Hydrating after class flushes out toxins, helps with muscle soreness, and prevents dehydration.
-Fruits: Fresh fruits are good to eat after you dance because your body uses so much glucose during high levels of exercise. Fresh fruit will help replace that and aid in muscle development. Not to mention, fresh fruit juice is refreshing, light, and yummy!
-Potassium: Avoid muscle cramping and soreness with foods or drinks high in potassium. (Raisins, potatoes, bananas, tomato products, cooked spinach, yogurt)
-Protein: Refuel the body after expending so much energy. (Meats, nuts, cheese, beans) 

If we treat our bodies right, we can expect better results during dance class. It is important to encourage healthy eating habits in dancers so we help prevent harmful eating disorders. When dancers are unhealthy, they are more prone to injury, fatigue, soreness, stress, and stagnation with their development. If you see unhealthy habits at your studio, please speak up to the director. Stay fit, focused, and strong the healthy way and feel much better while you're at it!

11 Things To Get You Hired At Dance Studios

Posted by Brittany White on Nov 10, 2012 10:03:00 PM

To be a good dance teacher, one needs a ton of experience in a few different areas. When dance studios hire, they are looking for someone who will create a following of students who continue to enroll in more dance classes. So how do you get started?

1. First and foremost, you need to become an expert in the style of dance you teach. Take classes and/or observe other teaching styles from as many different instructors as you can. This research will open your mind to various teaching techniques, new inspiration, and what is appropriate for students of different ages and levels of experience. dance jobs

2. Try getting in a program where you can be a dance teacher's assistant or co-choreographer. Working with someone else and getting their feedback will not only improve your teaching skills, but also introduce you to the world of teaching in a gentle way. Many dance studios will focus on nurturing their assistants into teachers as they see improvement and dedication progress.

3. Figure out which age group you are most comfortable with. It is common for people to interview with dance studios and say something like, "I work with all ages!" While this may be true, different age groups require different skills and knowledge from their teacher. To be a truly successful teacher, you must have a deep understanding of how your voice, energy, manner, language, and attire all adjust based on the ages you work with. That skill of knowing what is appropriate comes with experience.

4. Understand what kind of dance studios you'd like to work for. Is your specialty competition choreography, creative movement, fitness based classes, classical technique? Just because you are a good fit for one kind of studio does not mean you are a good fit for all of them. The more specific you can be about your talents, the easier it will be for you to find employment you can be successful with. 

5. A good teacher is also a good learner. If you get critiques from students, parents, or employers, listen! Sometimes little changes in your teaching habits can make a huge difference. The music volume, pace of your class, verbage you use, and how clearly you cue are all very easy things to fix. You'd be surprised how many times students get turned off by minor issues. If you don't take the time to listen and adjust, registration will suffer. Being a good dance teacher is an ongoing journey.

6. Network, network, network! Make dance friends of all shapes and sizes. Word of mouth in the dance world goes a long way. If people know you have a teaching talent in a specific area, they are more likey to recommend you for new jobs or suggest new students take your class. 

7. In the beginning, you should take any sub or teaching opportunity you can. Do not expect to get chunks of classes back to back your first year or two. You may be driving to teach an hour here and an hour there for a bit until you build your resume and can afford to be more picky.

8. Use social media like facebook and twitter to let people know where and what time you are teaching. You will gain confidence knowing you have the support of friends and family... and confidence is imperative for a dance teacher. The studio you teach at will also appreciate your help in growing their classes.

9. If you know of any dance teacher trainings or seminars to help with your class management, check them out. Read articles or books about what you are teaching or how to be a better teacher. There are so many tricks and tools out there to use for your advantage.

10. Get passionate about what you are teaching. If you come from a genuine place of excitement, that feeds off on your students and makes your class addictive. The best teachers are the ones who absolutely love what they teach and share that love with everyone around them. 

11. Take the extra time to bond with your students. Let them know you notice them. Chat a little before and after class. Give positive reinforcement. Keep your class playful and fun. No one wants to go to a class where they don't get attention. People like to feel special and recognized.

The best of the best teachers are knowledgable, likeable, creative, and experienced. Use all of the tools you can to develop yourself. There are tons of resources out there, just not enough people taking advantage of them.

When should you hire private dance teachers?

Posted by Brittany White on Oct 23, 2012 11:43:00 AM

Quite often people will ask if we have any private dance teachers for their special dancer. I have taught several private classes and think that there are a few things you should consider before hiring a private teacher. Market rate for a private dance teacher is $60-$80 an hour, so it can get quite expensive if you want to see true results. (This price often does not include the rehearsal space.) So take a moment to reflect on your motives by asking these questions:

1. Is there a specific goal that cannot be achieved in a regular dance class setting? If a serious dancer has fallen behind in what they are learning in class and needs extra help for whatever reason, privates might be a good idea. Sometimes show or audition preparation requires dancers to seek special attention. If the student is just dancing for fun, privates are not that necessary if they have been missing class. Taking a few regular classes a week would be enough to get back into the swing of things. DSC 0146

2. Are jittery nerves playing into this decision because learning with other students seems too intimidating? Some families want to start with private dance teachers until the dancer gets comfortable enough to try a regular dance class with other students. If this is the case, I wouldn't spend the money on private dance classes, but rather find a better class considering age, the teacher and dancers' level so that it fits with your dancer.  In reality, most dance students are more focused on themselves compared to critiquing other dancers. Many people think they will get made fun of if they are beginners when this is not the case! (Or shouldn't be and if so you are at the wrong studio.) Beginners also need to understand that picking up dance moves will get easier over time. It is normal to feel a little overwhelmed your first few classes. Private lessons could definitely help, but persistence with normal classes should do the same thing and save a lot of money over time.

3. Are you interested in a unique bonding experience with a partner or specific group of people? I've had couples ask for private dance teachers in preparation for their wedding or just as a fun date idea. I think that is a great! It is difficult to find classes sometimes that will cater to two people in this way. Some parents also ask for a private lesson for girl scout troupes, birthday parties, or other social gatherings. This is a fun option when you want to try something different and create a special bonding activity that may get lost in a bigger classroom setting.

4. Are you looking to improve awkwardness for dancing in social settings? I've had a few different men ask for private lessons so they would feel more comfortable dancing rather than being the "wall flower." If this is the case, a typical dance class is not going to pin point exactly how one should be dancing in a party setting. In a private lesson, the dance teacher is able to work specifically on what seems off with the student's natural movement. They can also teach very basic steps using various "grooving" exercises that would be hard to learn in even a beginner dance class. For women seeking privates for this reason, I would suggest trying Zumba, burlesque, or belly dancing type classes before spending the money. These types of classes focus on more hip work that might give a woman more confidence in a social dance setting.

On the other hand, if you feel like you are just lacking confidence, rather than actual moves, I'd stick to a dance class. Private lessons lack the social aspect of a regular class and the development of new friendships. Making other dancer friends is great for one's confidence and creates a better energy during class. Dancers start "vibing" off each other and create a team or family atmosphere that make dancing outside of class less intimidating.

5. Do you or your dancer have special needs? Dancing can be very therapeutic for many people from all different walks of life. If you are looking for a regular class to cater to specific learning, physical, or special needs, it may be a little harder to find. I have been approached by a few parents of children with Autism, Down's Syndrome, and Spina Bifida who are interested in seeing if dancing will be a good outlet. I 100% agree that it would as long as it is a good fit for the student. The size, style, and age group of the class will play a role in the dancer's experience as well as how well their teacher understands their needs. The best thing to do is start talking to private dance teachers to find the person that would be most experienced and helpful. You might even want to look into an actual dance therapist to see what programs are offered in your area for group or private classes. 

People have multiple reasons for seeking out private dance teachers. I just recommend you discuss your motives with the teacher you are interested in to ensure you really need special attention that can't be found in a regular dance class. The price difference is pretty big and multiple lessons are required to see desired results. If you are having trouble finding private dance teachers, you can always research some local studios in your area and ask who they recommend based on what you are looking for.

How Dance Classes Benefit Early Development

Posted by Brittany White on Aug 16, 2012 7:27:00 PM

Time and time again, I hear people ask, "Aren't they too young to be dancing?" The truth is, as long as you find age appropriate dance classes, no. The ability to start dancing develops in children before they can even form words! (Click here to see a fun example.) Dance is a primal part of human experience across all cultures and time periods that unites us all no matter our age. The benefits it has on early childhood development is definitely worth understanding. 

Physical Development
Physical development is one of the most obvious benefits dance classes have for children. They are learning a great range of motion, body awareness, balance, muscle strength, coordination, and endurance. Movement patterns require the child to use their entire body to reach a level of fitness that is unparalleled by other activities. Through dance classes, kids begin to understand that the possibilities of movement are endless and fun to explore.

Social Awarenesschildren activities
In dance classes, children have the opportunity to learn in a comfortable social setting. They must take turns, work as a group, cooperate, share, understand space, form lines, watch and support one another, perform, and interact. They learn that communication can occur through immediate and effective movement to express an idea. The group dynamic in dance classes also challenges young ones to respect others as they share and move through space in unison. Many times you will see a very strong bond between dancers because of these efforts no matter how old they are. 

Cognitive Development
At a young age, children understand that movement can be used as a response to an idea or problem. This creates a cognitive link to a solution or outcome. This type of cognitive development creates an awareness of how to function in the world. For example, it is very common in dance classes for children to be taught to leap over a "river" (scarf or mat) so they don't get wet. This idea achieves several different concepts... leg extension, transferring weight, problem solving, imagination, balance, space recognition, etc. The idea is that physical expression or solutions give young ones another way to handle the world while their verbal communication develops. 

Emotional Maturity
Because dancing is also an art form, children are learning how to creatively express their emotions as well. There are endless opportunities to share and be aware of various emotions as students experience one another and themselves through movement. Dance classes provide a structured outlet for a healthy physical and emotional release that helps devolop emotional maturity. 

Scientific research has barely tapped in to the benefits of dance classes for early childhood development. I think we can all agree by saying that they are definitely not harmful. Well, unless you are involved in something like the show, "Dance Moms"... but that's a different blog post. Stay tuned!

5 Questions To Ask For A Kid-Appropriate Hip Hop Dance Class

Posted by Brittany White on Jul 24, 2012 7:59:00 PM

hip hop dance classes

This week as I was chatting with a parent about various class options for her young daughter, she mentioned that Daddy said hip hop dance classes were out of the question. I didn't push the issue at all but it got me thinking... hip hop dance classes aren't just for booty-poppers! There is a stigma out there. With hip hop, it is easy for people to assume that a certain level of inappropriateness is involved. This may be the case with some teachers and studios if they are not taking the time to consider what is and what isn't age appropriate. Hip hop dance classes can be found just about anywhere these days and just like any program you involve your family in, it is smart to do your research and ask questions. Here is what to look for:

-Does the teacher use age appropriate music? (This should include content as well as curse words.)

-Is the teacher a positive role model that your dancer can look up to?

-How does the instructor teach above and beyond the classroom to incorporate life skills?

-Is the movement about having fun and creating a positive message or is it about something you're not comfortable with as a parent?

-Overall, does the dance program you are considering seem professional and family friendly? Click here for an example of a dance company that is clear about how they hire their teachers.

Exposing your dancer to something you and they aren't ready for is never a good time. On the same note, I'd hate for a kid to miss out on an amazing class that could do wonders for their confidence just because mom or dad didn't give it a chance. Hip hop dance classes are a very popular outlet for people nowadays and can be so much fun! Click here to see an example.

When they are done right, the dancer should feel amazing about themself afterwards. They should be sweaty, happy, and confident after learning something that presented the right amount of challenge mixed with fun. If this is not the case, I recommend trying a different class, teacher, or dance company. Ask if the program you're considering offers a trial class option. If they do not, see if you can observe the class before signing up. Whatever you do, don't knock hip hop until you give it a solid chance and explore the various opportunities available.

Should my dancer take class twice per week?

Posted by Brittany White on Mar 7, 2012 11:58:00 AM

I want to put all parents at ease and say that I am going to answer this question as a teacher and not as a dance studio owner. Like anything, the more you practice a skill, the more you will learn and the faster you will improve. I think the better question is, “At what age should a dancer be taking twice per week.” Even more specifically, “how imperative is it for a dancer to be taking class twice per week?”

As with all my answers, it depends on the age of the dancer. For tiny tot dancers, once a week is most common and fine for such a young age. If you find that your tiny tot dancer LOVES going to dance class, then yes, get him or her in class twice a week for twice the fun. If you are going to take twice per week, I would recommend taking with two different teachers. All teachers have different teaching styles and will focus on different things allowing your dancer to benefit from both teachers. This will also keep them from becoming bored in class since the teachers will most likely be teaching different moves, use different imagery and play different games. Most tiny tot dance classes are combination classes to keep the little dancer’s interest for the entire class, but if the dance class is a single style, you may want to consider doing your second class in a different style. For example, one class in ballet and once class in tap. Although taking twice per week is great for any young dancer, it is not imperative at this age and will not hold them back if they ever decide to become serious about studying dance.

Dancers who are taking a full hour of one style and are 6 to 8 years old can start seeing big improvements by taking dance class twice per week. Again, it is not imperative but if a dancer has a natural tendency towards dance and loves it, then this is the age that twice a week will really help the dancer start improving strength, muscle memory, and build a strong foundation of technique. If the child is taking more than one dance style, you may only want to double up on one dance style for now so that the child does not become overloaded.

Every studio calls their levels something different but for example, what I call Ballet 2 for ages 9-11, is when it’s really important for a dancer to take twice a week if they are doing dance for more than a recreational activity. This would go for any style that they are concentrating on. Most dancers start spending a lot more time at the dance studio at this age. As the dancer becomes older, the volume of classes should depend on their dedication and interest level and not based on a studio’s policies or pressure. Be sure to find the studio that has policies that fit with your child’s interest, age and level and that suits your financial abilities. Most studios will offer packages of some sort for the students who are taking multiple classes per week. As always, do your research and take some trial classes at various dance studios to find the right fit for your dancer. The ultimate goal is to always develop a love and appreciation of dance so that they will want to continue to dance in the long term.

What is in your dance bag?

Posted by Brittany White on Jan 26, 2012 11:55:00 AM

It is a good idea for dancers to have a dance bag so that they come to each class prepared. When I say dance bag, it does not need to be a specifically bought dance bag as any bag will work.

Ideally, tiny tots should enter the dance studio already wearing their dance attire with their shoes on and tied, so their dance bag shouldn’t really contain anything except the necessary change of shoes and a water bottle. It is better not to put too much in the bag so there are not distracting things that have the potential to get lost. A dance bag for a tiny tot is not completely necessary, but it does help from shoes getting mixed up between students.

As the dancers get older, they will probably want a few more things in their dance bag. If they are taking multiple dance classes, they will need the various shoes with them. It also might be a good idea to have a dance type sweater for ballet class for when the studio is cold. I would encourage having some accessories for their hair to ensure that it can always be pulled away from the face. Depending if the dancer is taking pointe or hip hop classes, they may need some bandaids for toes to help with those pointe shoes or even a little towel to help with sweat. If a student is taking multiple classes, fresh water is always important and a light healthy snack. One of the great benefits of participating in dance is that there is no heavy equipment to drag around so any small bag should be able to hold all the necessary items!

What should my child expect on their first day of dance class?

Posted by Brittany White on Jan 14, 2012 9:51:00 AM

The first day of dance class is something to get excited about! Some dancers may feel a bit nervous and/ or shy about the first dance lesson, but that is normal when trying any new activity. The best thing to do is talk about the class beforehand in a fun light-hearted manner to ease some of those nerves.

Every dance studio has their own way of running things, but typically parents can expect some registration paperwork, and dancers can expect a general introduction on the first day of class. The teacher will introduce themselves, take attendance and possibly do a fun ice breaker so the dancers can start becoming friends. If applicable, dancers will learn about their dress code and dance shoes. The first day of class can be a bit chaotic as everyone gets to know one another, and dancers are learning the class structure and expectations of the teacher. It will take a couple of classes to get into the swing of things. Parents should not be worried on the first day if a student looks or feels a bit lost. That is what class is about...learning and improving!

Tiny tot dance classes can be especially crazy on the first day because it is hard to teach that age group when the teacher doesn’t know all the students’ names yet. It’s also often their first class ever. Time will resolve all the initial chaos as students become accustomed to their teacher and class format.

Older classes will also start learning basic warm-up combinations that may be challenging at first. They will be consistently used throughout the entire course, so that the warm-ups can be completed with ease each week.

Overall, parents and dancers should expect a exciting experience on the first day of dance class where students start learning the basic format and rules, while reviewing material from the previous class level. The most important thing, as always, is to have fun and start falling in love with the art of dance!
