1. what do we wear to our first dance class? A. you can find all our class attire requirements for dance wear for shoes and dance wear in the Welcome packet here. In addition we have an easy access dance wear store here or you can visit the office to order shoes or visit Fancy Feet plus in Ludlow for all your dance wear and shoe needs.
3. How does adc decide class placement? A. We decide what level each dancer is placed in based on their skill in that particular style of dance. often times that may mean a dancer take a few classes and the teacher evaluates their level for placement. a dancer may be in a level for several years to master the skill set at that level before they move on to the next level. this ensures that they are training their bodies properly and creating the physicality needed to accomplish the degrees of difficulty needed as they progress in each dance style. In addition this allows their minds to develop and grow as artists as they mature and learn.
4. Why is jazz or ballet class required in addition to musical theater class? the musical theater class consists of dance, vocal, and acting training. in order to keep up with each component of the class a dancer must have the experience and training of a jazz or ballet class as a foundation to build from each time we have a dance class. we are not afforded the time to have dance every week as we share time with acting and vocal training so we ask dancers to study it in addition so they are studying it weekly.
