Why choose Studio 5 as your Dance Family?
"When my family and I moved from a great dance studio in Maryland this summer we were so sad to leave. That quickly changed into happiness when we were welcomed into the Studio Five family. The owners truly care about all their students and families, and the instructors incorporate the perfect blend of teaching the students technique and discipline in a caring, fun, and motivating way. Plus, the parents and students are wonderful!" ~Dayna B.
Small class sizes: In order to ensure your child receives individualized instruction, we purposefully limit classes to no more than 15 students for ages 7 and up, and no more than 15 students for the Tippy Toes and Tappy Feet classes .
We know your name: You will not feel like a stranger when you join our dance family. Positive relationships are our first priority. Everyone who enters the studio is greeted with a smile. We take time to get to know the names of each student and their families Our door is always open, and we love it when you stop in to chat.
Professional Educators: All instructors hold degrees in education and/or professional dance experience. We only hire people that we would trust with our own children.
Appropriate and Modest: Our music is always appropriate for families and kids. Costumes are tasteful and modest. Our choreography is tasteful and developmentally appropriate. We believe kids should be kids for as long as possible. Despite what is on the radio and t.v., we work to protect the innocence of each individual dancer. We do what is right, not what is popular.
Family Friendly Environment: Parents are welcome to stay and get some work done at our work stations in the lobby, get a cup of coffee from the Keurig, or get to know some of the other parents. Bring your younger kids - we don't mind! We have toys, books, and coloring books to help pass the time. We believe everyone should have a positive experience- not just the dancers!
Growth Mindset: We help each child grow and develop as a performer at his/her own pace. Our choreography is created to highlight each student's strengths while also building their technical skills. We strive to make learning fun, yet challenging.
We Build Confidence: We believe that every child has unique abilities and talents. We work with each individual child to build their confidence in their abilities. We also work to help each child gain self confidence. There are so many negative messages coming at our kids daily. We believe kids need a safe place to grow, learn, and create. Our kids leave us with the confidence to take on the world!
Watch Classes: We have two cameras in each studio. Sit in the comfort of the lobby and watch your child's class. You can keep up on what is happening in class while enjoying a cup of coffee. Watch your child grow in technique and confidence.
Opportunities: We believe that every child should have the opportunity to share their love of dance. We offer all students, not just Troupe members, the opportunity to dance in the Christmas parades, volunteer at Retirement homes, dance in the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, and participate in studio social events and Master Class workshops from professional dancers and choreographers.
Drama Free Zone: We know that Dance Moms have a bad reputation. How can they not after the Lifetime show, bad behavior in the community and at competitions, and snarky comments on social media? We do not tolerate that type of behavior. Our studio is a drama free zone. You will find that we have the most welcoming, accepting, supportive families. If you are looking for a strong tribe of Moms to support you and your child, look no further.
