Questions and Answers

1.Why is intensive package recommended?

1)Students on this program will review and practice much more. They also have chances to learn more dance combos or routines and improve faster.
2) There will be more opportunities to perform in Recitals or outside of studio. 
3)There will be opportunities to perform by solo or in small group in Recital.
4)Have chance to receive the private class at a discounted rate.

2. What are the differences between programs for the young and adults?

1)Different style: the style for the young is much more positive and uplifting.  Adult learners practise other styles as well, including the sexy/ high heel...types
2)Different training methods: The young are subject to consistent, strict standards and disciplines, aiming that students can become a professional or semi-professional dancers after years of training. In contrast, adult programs are interest-oriented and the classes are more relaxing and learning standards depend on the individual’s aim.

3.Does street jazz require extreme flexibility? (like splits or backbend)

It is a common misconception among parents that extreme flexibility is the basic for all dance forms. In street jazz, building flexibility is just a small part. The aim here is only to seek flexibility at a reasonable level rather than going to extremes. A bigger target is securing the other building blocks like posture and alignment, power, rhythm, coordination, emotion expression, and stage presence.

4.Are there trial classes for new students?

Yes. All new young students are allowed one trial class regardless of age or experience before signing up. The 2023-2024 open trial class is on April 15th, 2023. (you can register now!).  If you can not make it, contact us to reschedule your own trial class.

5.Are there performance opportunities for students?

1)There will be annual recital for all young students to showcase at every late June.
2) Selected students can perform at events out side of studio.

 6.As a registered student, what should I prepare for the new school year?
