Local dance classes for kids

Many dance studios have dress codes for their students

Finding age appropriate local kids dance classes can prove  difficult at times. You want your kid to be challenged in their dance class but not overwhelmed.

Luckily Dance to EvOLvE has locations in San Diego, Chicago and Cleveland where we offer a wide variety of kids dance classes. In another area? Here’s some helpful tips when looking for an age appropriate local kids dance class.

What dance classes are offered?

Check out the current dance classes offered.  Are there enough classes for a variety of ages?  Do the dance classes accommodate  the appropriate ages? It’s important that the local dance studio offers dance classes for specific age groups such as 3-4 or 8-11 so that the kids are challenged. You wouldn’t want your 10 year old doing the same activities as the four year olds!

Next, you want to look at what types of dance are offered at your local dance studio. Are only creative movement classes offered? What about hip hop classes for kids? It is very important to find the right class to allow your kid to grow and succeed. Popular dance classes for kids are hip-hop classes, ballet classes and/ or combination classes. These include a mixture of tap and ballet.

What is your kid interested in?

One of the most important things you can do is ask your kid what they are interested in! If they say hip-hop classes, take a look at local dance studios that offer classes in that style. Once you have that narrowed down, then you can look at the professionalism of the studio, the cleanliness and the philosophy.  Does the studio place an emphasis on ensuring  kids feel welcome? What about laughs and smiles? An age appropriate local kids dance class will have the perfect balance of fun, learning and challenge.

Are the music and moves age appropriate?

Another important factor to look into when finding an age appropriate dance class for kids is the dance moves and the dance music. Not only do the dance moves need to be appropriate, they should also be catered towards the age of your child. For a younger kid, advanced ballet technique should not be introduced just yet. Rather the dance class should be focused on introducing the style as well as learning very basic introductory moves.

The dance music also needs to be catered towards the age of the kid. An eight year old in a ballet dance class should be dancing to different music than a five year old in a hip-hop dance class. To ensure the music and dance moves are appropriate, take a trial class at a local dance studio. Try a few different ones before settling. There is nothing wrong than taking the time to find the perfect kids dance class for your superstar.
