How to Plan for a Dance Season
Updated: Aug 16, 2020
Picking dance classes for the season can be overwhelming. For this reason, there are a few questions you should ask yourself before signing up for the dance season:
How much time do I want to spend in the studio?
How many nights a week can you commit to dance?
Where will you fit in time for schoolwork?
How much free time do you want to have?
Take at least one day a week off, this will help prevent burnout! Unless you are planning on becoming a professional, school comes first. Take a night off of dance when necessary. Be careful not to abuse this option, but know when you need the extra time.
What are my goals?
If you are just looking to have fun, the amount of time you spend in the studio is totally up to you!
If you are looking to advance and be competitive, you should aim to be in the studio 2-3 times a week for a few hours a night.
Take supplemental classes to become more well-rounded. Tumbling and Technique classes are great ways to increase body functionality and awareness!
How much money are you willing to spend on dance?
When signing up for dance class, it is important to remember the multitude of costs that come with it. These costs include registration fees, tuition, costuming, and potential private fees.
If you are still unsure about what classes you should sign up for, ask a director. We are happy to help!
