FIVE KEY FACTORS FOR PARENTS


Every parent should read and consider the following information before deciding on a Dance Theater Performing Arts studio for their children:

MORE INFO

If most dance studios out there seem to have qualified, friendly teachers, teachers with experience in teaching children and a recital at the end of the year, aren’t they all pretty much the same?

 

Does it really matter where you decide to enroll your child?  Yes.

There are 5 main factors that can make a huge difference in the quality of instruction that your child receives.  PSPA believes Dance is for LIFE and LIFE is DANCE...Give your child the very best in their education while they are young, ... and it will last a lifetime!

PSPA wants you to have 5 factors that every parent should consider before deciding on a Dance & Theater Arts studio for their child:
 
PSPA Dance Studios Advantage - The "Floating" Professional Dance Floor

1.    What type of floor is being used?

Dance is a very physical activity that requires a lot of jumping, which can put lots of stress on the bones and joints of many young dancers. The best way to prevent against potential injury is by choosing a studio with a professional “floating floor”. Our high-density foam base is superior to just a “sprung” floor, which usually consists of a wood structure built on the regular floor. Added to our “floating” floor we have a very expensive permanent  “Marley” floor that is accepted by worldwide professional schools as the best surface layer for all professional dance companies.  Very few studios in our area use professional “Floating”  & “Marley” floors like PSPA because of the very high expense involved. Most schools usually opt for a regular floor tile/solid surface that is not safe for your child.

2. WHAT IS THE SIZE OF THE CLASS?                
 In a smaller dance class each student will receive more personalized attention, learn more, and have more fun. Our smaller class sizes also ensure that every student understands the fundamental concepts of dance and allows our teachers to catch early on any bad habits or improper technique. PSPA preschool and kindergarten classes (ages 3-6) are limited to only 12 students per teacher per class, with teacher assistants in many of our classes. In addition, most of our classes include teaching assistants, making two or more teachers available for all our students.

3.WHAT DOES THE END OF THE YEAR SHOWS ENTAIL?             
 At The Pa School of the Performing Arts & SIMBT, we take great pride in putting on full-scale professional shows.  Our shows are not your typical long recital produced by most dance studios. We have professional lighting and sound, we pay special attention to every detail from the flow of the show to the quality themes of our programs on and behind the stage. All of our dancers from pre –school to adults who participate in our events are in professionally made costumes, completing the look of our productions. All our dancers, not just the company members, experience what dancing on a real stage is really like. Many say our shows are the best in our area and “Broadway” caliber! Most studios opt for easy low scale push-button long recitals, featuring, on and off lighting, costumes that are not appropriate or flattering to the children, no attention to detail and a boom box. Our annual Dance Productions hold a lifetime of memories and are truly a memorable event for all involved.

4.WHAT IS THE DANCE CLASS VIEWING POLICY?
Many studios have only once a year viewing times. Our dance studios have new two-way windows that you can view your child anytime. All parents, grandparents and friends can come and watch ANYTIME.
 
5.WHO IS TEACHING YOUR CHILDREN?
We have highly qualified, former Broadway/Ballet and professional trained teachers with varied teaching methods that are available to teach a broad range of Dance Styles for all ages. Many master teachers are brought in from NYC that are on the cutting edge of the new styles and take teacher-training workshops every year. We also have a certified Teacher Training Program (TTP) also available for gifted students taught by former Broadway Performer & Master Class Teacher - Mrs. Lee, Director and Founder of both PSPA/SIMBT.
