Determining Quality of School

Recommended Posts

Guest kat789

My home training is not adequate, so I am looking into supplementing once a week with a school about an hour and a half away from where I live. My SI teachers reccomended I take a "test class" to see if their instruction is worth the drive. They told me to look at the school's most dedicated and hard-working dancers, and evaluate whether I am more or less advanced, technically. I took a class in March, but most of the dancers were on Spring Break then, so I only saw 2. When I go back, my mom wants me to ask the teacher a couple of technical questions after class (ex. "I'm having trouble with this ____ step, do you have any suggestions?") and if they say something I know is wrong, then to leave the school. I'm not sure if this "plan" (as my mom prefers to call it) will work. Any suggestions or thoughts?

It is more focused on residency programs, but I think you will get the idea of how to evaluate a school from it.
