Frequently Asked Questions!

What is dance studio etiquette?

Dancer show respect for others by: keeping their hands to themselves during class, waiting quietly for others to have a turn, waiting until the music is finished before entering the classroom if they are late to class, and talking only when spoken to by the instructor (or being called on to ask a question.)

What will my dancer be learning?

Life Dance Academy offers many different styles and levels of dance classes, Each class/session has set curriculum that are designed to build upon one another. Our Mission in each session is to set your dancer up for success inside and out of the classroom with dance skills/techniques and life long skill such as responsibility, persistence, communication and more . 

Will there be a recital & does my dancer have to participate?

At the end of each season in June, Life Dance Academy will host the annual dance recital. Though we do offer students the choice to opt-out, the majority of our students LOVE to participate. If your dancer would like to be in recital they will need to be registered for classes no later than February 1st each season. Our Seasons run September through May.  

How large are the classes?

Class sizes are limited to allow each student individualized attention. An instructor will generally have 12-14 students in a session. If the room allows for more students, your instructor will have an assistant to maximize your students 1:1 attention. 

Do and Don't in Dance...

Is my "Little" ready for Dance?

LDA offers "Tiny Tot's" movement classes as young as 18 months old during school year sessions. This class is designed to teach our young movers dance etiquette, a joyful way to explore movement through music and dance while developing motor skills, rhythm, coordination and balance in our safe environment.
