As this dance season begins to fade away, many families start exploring their options for next year. Most families stay put, whether they are happy or not and others choose to move on. My advice for those looking for a new dance family is to SHOP AROUND. Do not be easily fooled by appearances like hype and a strong social media presence. Look for substance. Look for a positive environment. Look for happy children. Your job is to protect your child's mental and physical well-being. And remember, directors will tell you your child is amazing and has so much potential just to get you in the door and then throw your dancer in a classroom of 30 kids and think it's great training. Heck, they might even offer you some sort of scholarship to seal the deal. But think of the long term investment. Are their teacher's experienced, caring and positive or does the studio have obvious "favorites" and forgets about the rest of the paying customers? Do you have to sign your life away and compete for them just to take with the better teachers? And most importantly, avoid the DRAMA!
If you've been around dance studios you know what I am talking about. You really need to ask yourself what you want in a studio and then come try Chandler Dance Center:)
