How to be a successful dance student.
Make sure you arrive on time – This will allow for you to prepare and be ready to dance as well as join the class from the warm up and thus reduce any risk of injury.
Dress appropriately – Wearing the correct uniform ensures you are able to perform
properly and it allows the teachers to see the movement and teach accordingly. Remember that the full attire may include specific hair requirements.
No cell phones during class – make sure to silence your phone and to put it away during the your lesson.
Always be respectful and kind to your teacher, fellow dancers, and staff members.
Try to use the restroom before you enter your lesson and make an effort to avoid going during class. Should you need to use it, ask your teacher first.
Be mindful of how you enter and leave the studio – do it being respectful of teachers and students and keeping noise to a minimum so to be avoid disturbing other lessons that might be going on.
Respect other dancers – be mindful of your personal space and how it affects others when dancing. Never give feedback to fellow students unless it is indicated by the teacher, and always keep a positive and uplifting attitude towards others. Unkind behavior towards your peers is completely unacceptable.
Be attentive at all times so that you can follow instructions properly and safely, and to make the best of the feedback from you teacher. Remember corrections given to other dancers could also apply to you.
If you are waiting for your turn, it is considered proper to mark or practice the exercise on the sides. Do not disturb the work of others by getting in their way or cartwheeling on the side while waiting for your turn.
Maintain a positive attitude to promote a nice environment for you and everyone. Be mindful of your body language too, some gestures such as arms crossed or sitting down are not characteristic of a positive energy.
Thanking your teacher at the end of class is a long-time tradition and it is a nice
opportunity to recognise their knowledge and dedication to making you a better dancer every day!
