My Child is Not Participating........


ABSOLUTELY! Each dancer is different.


Some dancers may jump right in, while others may take several weeks to fully feel comfortable in class. This is completely normal!


We have seen dancers take up to 5-6 weeks to become a full participant in class.


Remember, everything is new to them.


They have a new space, new instructor, new friends, new music, new clothes.


This can be very overwhelming for our young dancers.


We know that some dancers may take longer to acclimate to the classroom setting.


Therefore, we encourage a minimum 2 months enrollment for class.


This time frame allows our dancers enough time to really understand the concepts in class and become more comfortable with their surroundings.
