1. Are you ready?

Before deciding to enroll to a dance school, ask yourself if you are ready and if it is something that you highly desire and want to pursue. Do you want to make a career out of dancing and performing or do you want to join dance classes just for fun?

Many dance schools offer dance classes for children as young as 3 or 4 years of age. RSM Stage Academy offers dance classes for ages 4+ with no upper age limit.

2. Do your research

Finding a school that appeals to you can be tricky but here are some tips on how to do your research.
Social media! Dance schools and academies usually have social media whether it be a website, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, etc. Here you can find comments and feedbacks from clients. This will help you get an insight about the school and get a feel of what type of work ethic they have.

Here are just some of our client’s testimonials:

• “RSM Stage Academy is a friendly Academy with a great variety of classes, workshops and many performance opportunities. My daughter’s thoroughly enjoy being a part of the RSM family.”
-Tracey – RSM Stage Academy parent.

• “Super classes and teachers, your sons/daughters will be extremely happy here. RSM are a family and they have made my daughters feel very welcome. You will love the moment when they perform at the annual showcases, it is well worth it. You will be so proud! “
– Shannell Gordon – RSM Stage Academy parent.

Give them a call! Even though the school may have a website, do not hesitate to call them. If you need any clarification of any information this is the best way to get your answers.

3. The Qualifications and Experience of the teacher

Not everyone puts a lot of thought into choosing a Dance or Performing Arts School and this can cost you tremendously. One of the most important things to do is to in a way, “investigate” the teachers and their level of experience and expertise.

You should look for a dance school that has teachers with the following qualifications:

• A Bachelor of Education from a university or college with a major in Dance or Performing Arts. (preferable)

• A teaching certificate and/or experience in teaching through a recognized curriculum or syllabus.

• A history of working as a performer/dancer which can be authenticated. Some teachers might have worked professionally for many years without an educational certificate but are extremely knowledgeable about the industry and can pass this experience onto their students. This means that they are highly skilled and have the expertise to train students to the highest level.

It is important for any teacher to have knowledge of first aid (in case of an accident/injury), understands general work and safety laws, teaches appropriate dance lessons and creates a safe and secure environment where their students will have lots of fun, learning and training to become well-rounded individual performers.

4. Which Type Of Class Or Dance Style Is Best?

Some dance schools may solely focus on one style of dance but at RSM Stage Academy, we teach our student’s choreography and technique classes that will build firm foundations and work on correct placement throughout in the following areas: Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Lyrical, Commercial Jazz, Street Dance and much more. Usually, it is best to ask your child what they prefer and want to learn first and then they can build and add other classes as they go.

5. Class Sizes And Placement

You might be concerned on how large the classes are in which you are enrolling in. It is important to attend classes that are not too overfilled and crowded. In order for every student to receive equal attention from the teacher, it is beneficial if the classes are created with smaller groups of students. Also, to ensure elevation and maximum growth of learning, it is very important to be placed in a proper class. RSM Stage Academy also offers 1 to 1 training for you or your son/daughter, to have the chance to hone in on any particular style or technique.

6. Tuition Fees, Budget, And Other Costs

Have in mind that aside from the tuition fees, there might be other fees for stuff such as uniforms/costumes, annual admin fee, insurance, etc. Assess your budget and decide what are you willing to pay for your dance education. At RSM, we are one of the most competitively priced Performing Arts Schools in the UK. Open to all ages 4+ with no upper age limit.

7. The Facilities And Location

One of the most important aspects of choosing any dance or Performing Arts School is the travel distance to and from your home. For many, the long distance to and from the dance school can be quite troublesome and with the constant traveling (by bus, car, etc.) it can become quite expensive. Do you often search the internet for “dance academy near me?”

Well, now your search is over. RSM Stage Academy offers dance classes right here in Wolverhampton, in the heart of the West Midlands.

When choosing a school, assure that the school sets a high standard for its cleanliness and safety. Do not hesitate to visit and evaluate the condition of the studios. Are they in good condition along with the equipment? Is the flooring system up to its highest standard? After all, this is the place where you will be spending hours training, learning, and rehearsing for shows/projects.
