What to Expect from Your Dancer’s Class

A few weeks ago we shared our video of what things you should expect from your Preschooler’s dance class, and we wanted to follow up with our video intended for older dancers! A few highlights:

“We feel it is important to mention that dancers may stay in one level for multiple years. As far as a general structure… every class will start with a warm up and stretch. We feel it is important to raise your body temperature and stretch to avoid injury.”

“Many classes will include some kind of across-the-floor movement side to side or corner to corner. If we are working towards a performance we may jump into choreography and teach formations, movements, and parts.”

“Another tool we utilize… may be going in groups where one group sits and watches another group go, and then they switch. This does a couple of things. For one, it allows you to have an audience to perform for, and it also teaches the ones sitting and watching how to be a good audience.” 

“You may also see us implement some freestyle games, or improvisation.”

“At the end of the day it’s about getting them moving, honing in on specific skills, learning choreography, learning how to freestyle, and ultimately gaining the confidence to be on stage.”
