skittle Posted July 17, 2003 Report Share Posted July 17, 2003 What do you look for in a studio/class/teacher?? For the past year I have become increasingly more unhappy with the owner of one of the studio I currently take class at. Last September the studio lost over half of the students, not because of the teaching staff but because of unhappiness with the owner. Long story but, Tuesday was the last straw; I had signed up for an advanced class. When I came for the class the owner had decided to cancel the class and combine it with the adult ballet conditioning 1 class and that I needed to come back later when the class was held. I explained that that would conflicts with my schedule. The owner told me that she can’t guarantee classes or times and doesn’t give refunds or credits. So I did come back because I can’t just throw the money away. The class was a joke!! There was around 17 of us from 11 years olds up through adults. The owner taught the class and it was very inconsistent, to say the lest. The adult classes that I take at that studio have been pretty consistent with one of the best teacher I have found in the area, but she is cutting her days down to one in summer and next year . My follow classmates are also all thinking of leaving the studio, but we really love the teacher. We are all in a quandary, should we stay and take the one class a week or leave and try to find a better studio In my area it is very hard to find good studios and/or good adult teachers. Sorry about all the venting, it has been a long time and coming... any advice would be appreciated. Quote Link to comment
