PART 5

Cost Effectiveness – Quality training should not break the bank! That said, the old adage is true that if it seems too good to be true it probably is. If all 4 previously listed considerations have been met, do some research in your area and find out the average. If studios or schools are secretive or elusive about pricing, walk away!

PART 4

Gender Inclusivity/Unisex classes – This one relates particularly to dance classes but it applies to other creative arts forms as well… As I mentioned above, the benefits of the arts have been well documented for all ages, sexes, genders and needs. However we still see so many classes geared toward girls only. And by that I mean someone’s perception of what girls’ interests should be (but that’s a whole other post!) My point is – if your little person wants to dance, sing, act, tumble or fly, ask questions and find out what steps the instructors and owners take to make sure no one feels compartmentalized or ostracized.

PART 3

Reputable syllabus – Every institution worth it’s reputation will follow a syllabus of cirriculum. In layman’s terms – a great big book of what to teach and how to teach it. There are many reputable dance, theatre, circus, music and vocal institutions that provide materials to Creative Arts Schools. Make sure your chosen school has one and is accountable to a higher organization to ensure quality training.

PART 2

Whole Child Approach – Are you looking for a great school where your kids will participate in arts programming long term? If so you want to be sure that the values you instil at home will be repeated at the school you choose. We all want our kids to learn a skill set – after all that’s part of what you’re paying for. But If the class is solely focused on results (“the perfect turns or jumps”) that may be harmful to your child’s self esteem or social/emotional development.
