How to choose a Dance/Ballet School/Studio?
Atention: Important for parents and students is to have some more information before choosing a school.
To be a Ballet Teacher one should be Educated and Certified, shoud have a Diploma, a Real Knowledge from Real Teachers in a Professional Ballet School, College, University, also a Real Stage Experience as BALLERINA in Professional Ballet Companies, Theater and Opera Houses!
Especially in Vaganovа(Russian) Мethod, it is very important to have gone through all the PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION, because the whole learning process includes not only Ballet Class training, but also Methodology, Pedagogy, Music, Piano, French, Anatomy and Physiology, Acting, Duet, Costumes, Decoration, Staging, etc.
Whoever thinks that just because she/ he is taking Ballet classes for several years now and participated in 2-3 performances in some amateur "Company", also taking Adult Ballet Classes here and there, watching on You Tube and copy exercises is knowledgeable enough to be a teacher and an owner of a Ballet School is a huge mistake!!!
There are ways for the new students to ascertain the quality of the school before enrolling:
First: Check the dance and education background
Second: If students trained by the owner/ teacher have gone on to college/university programs and or professional careers, this is a good barometer of the quality of instruction being offered.
Dear Parents, be aware about Martial Art - Tae Kwon Do that there are many people having a Black Belt and call themselves Taekwondo Masters, but do they have a real Certificate, real education and traing with real Korean Masters is the important question here?
