Professional Career-Driven Teaching Team:
At District Dance, we pride ourselves on our exceptional teaching staff. Our professional career-driven teachers hold a variety of degrees in education and dance-related fields. Each instructor possesses extensive experience, training, and expertise in their respective dance disciplines. They are not just instructors; they are mentors who guide and nurture students toward their full potential. With a career-driven mindset, our teachers are dedicated to providing a learning environment that supports and encourages the growth of each student.
Our Administrative Team:
Behind the scenes, our administrative team works tirelessly to ensure smooth operations and a seamless experience for students and their families. From handling registrations and scheduling to addressing concerns promptly, their unwavering dedication is the backbone of our studio. Our administrative team is committed to providing excellent customer service and fostering a welcoming atmosphere that makes everyone feel like part of our dance family.
Our proven curriculum has been created and perfected by a team with over a cumulative 80+ years of teaching experience. From beginners to advanced students, our curriculum is structured to provide a solid foundation while allowing for growth and progression. Our approach combines technique, creativity, and artistic expression to ensure a comprehensive dance education that prepares students for success in far beyond just dance-related endeavors.
Student Progression and Achievements:
At our studio, we celebrate the progress and achievements of our students. We believe in setting goals, and our instructors work closely with students to help them reach their full potential. Through yearly evaluations, personalized feedback, and performance opportunities, we foster an environment that promotes growth, self-confidence, and a sense of accomplishment.
State-of-the-Art Studio Space:
We understand the importance of a conducive learning environment. That’s why our studio boasts four professional studios with sprung wood floors topped with Marley, floor-to-ceiling dance mirrors, a Fender sound system, projectors, and more! We have a clean, vibrant lobby, a dancer hang-out lounge with a kitchenette, and a furnished outdoor patio. We want our dance families to have the best possible experience during their time with us.
Variety of Dance Classes:
Versatility is key in the dance world, and we offer a wide range of classes to cater to diverse interests and aspirations. Whether it’s ballet, jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, or tap, our studio provides an extensive selection of dance styles, levels, and age groups. Students can explore different genres, expand their skill sets, and discover their true passion within our supportive and nurturing environment.
Multiple Professional Performances:
Our studio believes in the transformative power of performance. We organize two professional performances each year. The first of which is our Spring ballet, starring our studio ballerinas who perform alongside professional dancers. Our second performance is our June recital. All classes (except our ballet dancers) perform in our June recital! These performances not only boost self-confidence but also instill a sense of discipline and professionalism that prepares students to take the stage and feel comfortable in the spotlight!
Multiple Team Opportunities:
For students seeking an extra challenge and a taste of healthy competition, our studio offers dancers ages 5 and up the opportunity to join our local performance team or our regional and travel competition teams. These teams provide a more intensive training experience, fostering camaraderie, teamwork, and a competitive spirit among dancers. Participation on one of our teams allows students to showcase their skills on a larger platform and gain valuable performance experience.
We understand the importance of individual attention and personalized instruction. To ensure optimal learning, our studio maintains a favorable student-to-teacher ratio specific to each age group. By keeping class sizes small, we can provide tailored feedback and guidance to each student, allowing them to progress more efficiently and effectively.
Paid Leadership Roles:
At our studio, we believe in fostering leadership skills and providing opportunities for careers in the arts. We offer select dancers the chance to gain real-world experience as dance teacher assistants and administrative interns. Our Interns are paid employees and learn from the best in the biz!
Easy Tuition Pricing and Payments:
We like to keep it super simple. Once you register for dance class at our Kentland’s studio location, everything is on auto-pilot! Tuition is automatically charged on the first of the month so you can get back to parenting like a boss! Our monthly tuition includes our VIP Performance Package: recital performance fee, recital media (video & photography), custom t–shirt, premium program, program dedication, recital gift, and more!
Knowing what’s important to your family is crucial to choosing the right dance studio for you and your dancer.
