NOT YOUR KID’S DANCE STUDIO
While most dance studios focus their attention on children’s and teens’ classes, offering the occasional adult class, usually of very mixed experience and ability levels, at The Studio: A Dance Center for Adults our edge is our dedication to and understanding of adults’ busy schedules and specific needs. The Studio is as much a haven as a place to learn, explore, and exercise.
Unlike at other schools, adult students are our priority, not an afterthought. Our students do not share the space with toddlers, grade school or high school students, so they are free to enjoy their dance experience without distraction. Since our classes are only open to adults 18 and over, our classes do not mix adults with high school students as other studios do. When adults take classes at child-focused studios, they can feel like second-class citizens and are offered one or two classes late in the evening and rarely, if ever, on the weekend. They can also feel out of place, having to endure childish behaviors, giggles, or whispers.
At The Studio, our students are our focus, not the end-of-the-year recital; we are not priming students for a company or audition; there is no intimidation or competition and no vying for a spot in the “company hierarchy.” Our ongoing adult classes allow students to focus more on the process than the final product.
