You’ve registered for dance and your kid is beyond excited to bust a move, but now what?! Here are 6 steps to get ready for the new dance season and set your child up for success!
MARK YOUR CALENDAR – There are many important dates from Sept-June including studio closures, rehearsals and performances. Use the Key Dates Calendar to get organized and set aside these dates NOW before they sneak up on you!
GET YOUR DANCE GEAR – It is critical for dancers to have the correct clothes and footwear to dance their best in class. Just as you would with sports, dancers must come to class in proper attire- with correct shoes, hair up (back and secured). If your child is not properly dressed, they may be asked to sit out and observe for the duration of class. Dance clothes can be purchased at www.discountdance.com or at Dancer’s Image in Newton (mention The Dance Academy for a 10% discount at checkout). For a full list of all requirements, check out the dress code section of our website.
BE ON TIME- Punctuality matters at dance! Not only can missing warm up be harmful to a dancer’s body, but walking in late is uncomfortable for your child and distracting for his/her peers. Please aim to get your child here at least 5 minutes before class start time so they can start dance from a calm, prepared and happy mindset.
INVITE A FRIEND – Dance is even more fun when it is shared with a buddy. Attending with a familiar face can also help to ease first day jitters. Bonus – parents can carpool to save drive time!
BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE – There is nothing worse than pushing yourself to the limit learning some cool new choreo only to realize that you don’t have your water bottle. We are happy to provide dancers with water via our newly installed water bubbler but we do not supply cups so please MAKE SURE TO BRING A WATER BOTTLE and label it so it can be returned to you if left behind.
COMMUNICATE – We are here for you! If you ever have a question or concern, please call our office at 617-614-5438 or email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you.
