Need advice for possible school change

Recommended Posts

I would also suggest trying to take class at the schools on your "short list"   A school can have all the acolades, but still not be a good fit for your dancer.  There is something really specific about getting in a class and seeing how it fits for her.

Thank you, Melissa & CakeMom.

Do you all think an audition class is enough to determine if a school’s the right fit or must it be a class during the year-round program?

I think an actual year round class gives more insight vs an audition class that might be attended by a wider variety of students.

I agree with MelissaGA. An audition class can give you the feel for the teacher(s) running it but an actual year round class will show how things are in the day-to-day culture.

I completely agree that a regular class would give you a much better feel for how classes are run and what the environment is like there with their other dancers.   An audition class is usually run differently.
