concerned parent Posted November 16, 2007 Report Share Posted November 16, 2007 When comparing and evaluating dance schools, is it reasonable to place much emphasis on the quality of their performances? We have been looking for a step up from a recreational program for our 14 yr old DD. We found a school that seems to offer better teaching. Our main reason for hesitating is that we saw one of their performances last year, which was underwhelming. It was small (the school is small-basically a one person operation) and, except for a few selections, the dance performances did not seem very challenging. It could reflect what the teacher has to work with and the amount of time devoted to it (class time is usually not used for rehearsals), but nevertheless, it was not as impressive as some of the shows our DD has been in. Are we placing too much emphasis on performance (vs training)? Changing schools is scary enough and this issue really has us (including DD) worried. Quote Link to comment
