How many dance classes should my child take?

Dance training: how much is enough?

Should my dancer take class twice per week?  Like anything, the more you practice a skill, the faster you will improve. I think the better question is: “At what age should a dancer be taking class 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 absolutely fine. If you find that they LOVE going to dance class, then yes, enroll them in lessons twice a week for twice the fun. However it is not imperative at this age and will not hold them back should they decide, at a later date, to become serious about studying dance.

dance classes should my child take

Dancers aged six to eight years of age, who are taking a full hour of one style, can start seeing big improvements by taking dance class twice a week. Again, it is not essential but an extra lesson will really help the dancer start improving strength and muscle memory.

As the dancer becomes older, the volume of classes should depend on their dedication and interest level. It should not be based on a studio’s policies or pressure. Be sure to find a studio that fits your child’s interest, age, and level and that suits your financial abilities. Most studios will offer packages of some sort for 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.
