    By: ActivityTree

    Have a little ballerina twirling around the house?  Here are a few things you should know before you embark on the search for dance classes:


    • Most studios begin offering dance classes for children 3 and older.
    • If you are starting your child in dance as a preschooler, we recommend looking for a class that is focused on movement and fun, rather than technique.
    • Most studios have a nine month season which begins in September, and ends in June with a dance recital. Late registration may only be accepted in September and October.
    • Many dance studios do not offer classes, or offer only a limited schedule, during the summer months.
    • Be sure to inquire about monthly dance fees, admin fees, costume fees and recital fees before you sign up.
    • Also consider expenses for ballet shoes, tap shoes and dance leotards.
    • If you are looking for a class after October and are interested in recreational instruction, check your local parks and recreation department for dance classes.
