Dance Barn Studio Values
Here's what Dance Barn is all about
Excellent Technique and Affordability
Student Fees: Although we don’t have reduced prices for families, we keep our prices low so that all families can benefit from our reasonable prices.
We don’t believe in purchasing expensive costumes that’ll only be used once, so we keep all costume prices reasonably low, sometimes drawing on students’ wardrobes. When purchasing more expensive costumes, we keep them at the studio to be rented out to subsequent classes. Occasionally, students are permitted to keep their costumes if we are unable to be use them in the future.
Competitions and Exams
We value retaining dance as an enjoyable pursuit without competitive pressure. We have therefore chosen to not to take part in competitive events or exams, but we still maintain our priority to pursue excellence in dance.
We believe that dance is an art, not a sport. Although we train our bodies well, we also want to express ourselves emotionally and creatively.
We view the families involved in our studio as a community and encourage students to support and cheer one another along on their dance journey.
In order to keep our prices low, we appreciate parents volunteering their time to help with studio events as they are able.
We encourage students to respect one another in class situation and not disrespect their fellow students or instructors verbally, physically, or emotionally.
Costuming, Music, and Movement Choices
The Dance Barn values the purity of our students and have therefore chosen to keep music and movement choices that are age appropriate, are respectful to our students bodies and characters, and have a positive influence on our culture.
Levels and Ages
We believe in pushing students to THEIR OWN next level — understanding that that process should be enjoyably challenging and confidently inspiring.
We believe that people of all ages and backgrounds are welcome to train and develop in any form of dance.
We don’t believe in over-extending the bodies natural abilities in order to keep our dancers’ bodies safe and able to dance for many years to come.
We believe that dance is for a lifetime and, therefore, our students don’t finish their careers when they’re done high school. It’s actually just the beginning.
