Can I be in the studio to observe my child's class?
Our dance classes are independent classes, meaning that the students enter the classroom without parents to be able to fully engage with the instructor. For classes with younger students, we will invite parents into the classroom at the end of class for a mini performance. This allows the students to gain confidence by performing what they have learned and it assures parents that students are getting a great dance education at Studio b!
