At The Studance Lab, we know the importance of having continuity between our classes and teachers and across our programs. It is so important to us that no matter what class a dancer enrolls in, they are getting high-quality instruction in dance technique and classroom activities. We also place a great deal of importance on fueling their bodies and brains with positive, uplifting feedback and, above all, safe dance instruction.
One of the ways we ensure that dancers will always receive these foundational aspects in all our classes is by using a curriculum. We have a proprietary dance class curriculum that was developed by our Program Directors to fit the needs of our specific dance studio. Through this curriculum, we can tailor our program to meet our dancers where they are in terms of dance technique and classroom needs. Our curriculum is what we like to refer to as a “living document” in that it is revised and updated every year based on how our students progressed in our classes. Our Dance Program Directors visit classrooms and make notes of our progress throughout the year so that we can be sure to customize our classes accordingly. This “real-time feedback” is what makes our curriculum so uniquely ours.
Another benefit of having this curriculum is that we can ensure that our dancers all learn the same concepts, skills, and techniques regardless of the classes they choose to take. We know that dance is not the only activity going on in your house. This means we need to offer multiple times for people to take Jazz I or Tap III for example. It is so important to us, as a studio and educational institution, that no matter the day or time you take a class, your dancer will receive quality dance instruction and will be able to progress through our programs. We have seen tremendous success with our curriculum and the benefits it brings to all our students. We love seeing growth and progress in our dancers! We are fully invested in and committed to their dance journey with us.
