are considering registering for dance classes at any other dance studio or
ballet school in Sunnyvale, Cupertino or Mountain View, we encourage you to
ask the studio the following questions before making your decision.
Why Choose Us For
If most dance studios
seem to have qualified, friendly teachers, experience teaching children and a
big show at the end of the year, aren’t they all pretty much the same? Does it
really matter which place you decide to enroll at? Yes. There are 4 main things
that can make a huge difference in the quality of instruction your child
receives, the amount of extra work and hassles the parents must deal with and
the overall enjoyment and satisfaction of being involved with a dance program.
Here are 4 things that every parent should consider before deciding on a dance
studio for their child.
What Type Of
Floor Is Used?
Dance is a very physical activity that requires a lot of jumping, which can put
stress on bones and joints. Most dance footwear does not provide any cushioning
or support, so the shock of dance movement can place a lot of pressure on the
knees and back of a dancer. The best way to prevent against potential injury is
by choosing a studio with a professional “floating floor”. A floating floor is a
dance floor that rests on a system of high-density foam, to absorb the shock of
jumping. A high-density foam base is superior to a “sprung” floor, which usually
consists of a wood structure built on the regular floor.
The top layer of the dance floor is also an important factor. A vinyl composite
“marley” floor is accepted worldwide as the best surface layer for recreational
to professional dance. Facilities such as the Royal Winnipeg Ballet, the Royal
Academy of Dance in London, England, and Riverdance - The Touring Show, all use
marley floors as their dance surface. A marley floor allows dancers to slide,
with a degree of “controlled slip", but is not slippery so there is less risk of
slips and falls. Very few studios use professional marley floors because of the
expense involved, and usually opt for a regular floor tile for a studio floor.
All of our studio
locations have floating floors that have over 700 high density foam blocks under
the floor surface and a marley top surface. Our special floors help reduce the
risk of injuries and allow students to dance longer without getting tired.
What Is The
Size Of The Class?
If the dance class has fewer students in it each child will receive more
personalized attention, learn more and have more fun. With younger students it
is easier for a teacher to maintain control over the class and make sure each
student understands the concepts and instructions. Our smaller class sizes make
sure that no fundamental concepts are being missed. A smaller class size also
allows our teachers to ensure that students are not developing bad habits or
Our studio limits all of our classes (ages 5 and up) to a maximum of just 12
students per class. With our kindergarten dance (Pre-School Dance) classes (ages
3 -4) and Angelina Ballerina Dance Classes (ages 3-5) we limit our classes to a maximum of just 8 students per class.
Are Parents Required To Alter
Costumes For The Year End
Most studios put on a year end show in a professional theatre. Students that
perform in the show must have a costume for their dance number. Some studios may
require parents to sew their child’s costumes, or pay extra and the parents must
find their own seamstress to do the sewing. This can be inconvenient and
frustrating for parents who are busy or can’t sew.
Our studios order costumes and alter them if needed, so parents do not have to
worry about any costume hassles.
Can I Get Immediate Assistance
And Customer Service?
In many studios the teacher or the studio owner conducts classes and does the
administration. By trying to do two jobs at once, the class may suffer as the
teacher has to use class time for customer service issues, or the studio may
have no customer service available if the teacher is in a class. To have a good
experience it is important to choose a studio that can assist you with details
like costumes or schedules, even if a teacher is occupied in a class. Our
studios have office staff on hand during all regular class times, so you can get
