Have you ever stopped to think about enrolling your dancer (or yourself) in an additional class? Even young dancers in combo classes can benefit from taking two classes per week!
Gain Skills Faster
Only taking one dance class, once a week, there is a limit on how fast dancers will gain skill. Taking two dance classes per week will increase skill-building opportunities immensely! The repetition has a compounding effect, and improvement grows at a faster rate than you thought possible.
Learn from Someone New
Taking classes from different teachers also improves skills. All teachers have their own styles and focus on different things. By taking a second class from a different teacher, you or your child can learn new skills while adapting to different teaching styles. This can further help dancers develop a solid foundation of techniques, strength, and muscle memory.
Different Dance Styles Complement Each Other
Exposure to a wide variety of dance styles such as ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical or hip hop on a weekly basis helps dancers learn different ways to move their bodies. For example, a ballet or lyrical class might enhance grace and fluidity while a jazz, tap or hip hop class might improve their ability to count the music or move more sharply. Another great advantage of adding variety to a dancer’s regime is that they can step out of their comfort zone, become exposed to new music, movement and so much more. Overall, taking lessons in multiple dance styles makes a more well-rounded dancer.
The cost of taking two dance classes per week (or more) is the most effective way to save money at SMSD! The rate per class drops 30-40% for adding a second class (depending on length of class time). Interested in adding another class for you or your child? Contact the office today!
