You found Five Star Dance Studios… it sparked an interest… you inquired with us and now you are scheduled for your first lesson!!
Scheduling the lesson was no big deal, but now it is the day of and you’re probably nervous, excited, or unsure. You may even be thinking about canceling the lesson or rescheduling. Everyone is nervous when it is time for their first lesson! It’s a new environment, new people, and you have to move in front of a stranger!
You made it! What happens next?!
Walking through the front door is the first step to a successful lesson at Five Star Dance Studios. It’s your first accomplishment! When you come into the studio, you will be greeted enthusiastically by one of our amazing front office associates. They will make you feel comfortable right away. Your instructor will come out to officially meet you in person! We absolutely love new students! You will also notice that we have your name on our welcome board! You will be asked to fill out an information form. If you know what dances you would like to do, you can circle those options, but we are prepared to teach you without any prior knowledge of dance at all. We have instructors who specialize in teaching for even the most beginner students. We will take the opportunity to get to know you, how you want to use your dancing, and how we can accommodate your dancing needs!
After registering, it’s time to dance! Your instructor will give you a quick tour of the studio to make you feel at home. We start with our basic elements of dance (these will get you comfortable with very simple movements that we use throughout all dances.) Then, we introduce you to some basic patterns of your first dance. We will show you 1-2 patterns and then play some music, so you can hear and feel the dance. We repeat this, and show you some basic patterns of other dances that we feel will interest you.
The lesson is finished
The first lesson will go by so fast, you will feel silly for stressing out about it! After the first lesson, your instructor will review what you did, and then recommend a foundation program for you. These programs are designed based on your time, your budget, and what you would like to get out of your dancing. We make it our goal to accommodate to your wants and needs. We make magic happen!
