• WHAT WE STAND FOR

    Touch of Class Dance Studio is more than just dance its a place a child will build upon dance skills as well as improve their self-confidence, meet new friends and learn to be a supportive team member.  Our instructors teach with positive reinforcement building upon each skill taught.

    The first step to becoming a successful dancer is making a substantial commitment to your classes. Strong technique is a key ingredient, being in classes each week is where you develop that technique. Come to each class prepared to learn and without personal distractions. Class time is your chance to focus on yourself, so try to leave your concerns or worries at the studio door. Genuine progress is made when you look at each class as an opportunity to become better at what you love to do. Dance full-out, stretch a little further, become more aware of your technique, and make the most of every class.

    Respect for the teachers is essential. Listen to each correction given, whether it’s directed at you or another dancer. A correction is an honor; it shows you how much a teacher cares about your progress as a dancer. Always say thank you when a teacher or choreographer offers you constructive criticism. Nothing can stop those students who apply themselves in every class and appreciate their teachers’ knowledge and experience.
