Our small class sizes allow you to form a connection with your dance instructor in Charlotte, NC.
Whether you are learning a new style of dance or simply perfecting an old favorite, your dance instructor can be a vital part of assisting you in growing your love for dance. At Carolina Dance Capital in Charlotte, NC, we know the value of a quality dance instructor. In order to provide you with the highest quality of dance instruction, we keep our class sizes low.
Classes for children range from 6-12 children (based on age), while classes for teenagers max out at 15. This allows you to form a connection with your dance instructor, as well as the other students in your class. It also allows your dance instructor to spend individualized time with you, pointing out strengths, as well as areas for improvement.
What Qualities Does an Excellent Dance Instructor Have?
At Carolina Dance Capital, we often share that it is the more than 100 years of combined experience that our dance instructors have and our small class sizes that facilitate a student-dance instructor connection and positive experience. While those are definitely contributing factors, there are many other ways that our dance instructors go above and beyond for our students.
First of all, our dance instructors know the difference between communicating and motivating. Yes, communication is important or students wouldn’t be able to understand how they can improve, but without the motivational guidance, they may not feel that they CAN improve. Our Charlotte, North Carolina students prosper by the enthusiasm that our dance instructors display!
Another trait you’ll notice is that praising of honest effort is a common practice. You can tell an excellent dance instructor by how invested they are in helping their students accomplish their goals by giving positive feedback and motivating, rather than acting like a military drill sergeant. By approaching dance instruction with the goal of improvement and being truly involved in our students’ successes, we believe our students respond well and can connect with their dance instructors in a meaningful and beneficial way.
The dance instructor will also guide students to lift each other up and be positive. Negativity breeds negativity, so the instructors delicately address those types of behaviors so that every student can benefit from a positive environment. The bottom line is that when the dance instructor loves what they do and is passionate not only about dance, but also about teaching dance, the opportunities are endless!
