Rhythms & Soul is a user friendly dance studio whose goal is to teach students the art of social partner dancing by perfecting their basic steps and technique in a non-competitive, positive atmosphere. Our objective is not only to teach dance but to build the students’ confidence by implementing a step by step program which allows participants to experience a sense of accomplishment as well as expand their dance skills and fulfill their desired aspirations.
When a potential student inquires about classes, it is difficult to determine dance level. Therefore, we suggest that new students take advantage of our introductory special. The Intro Special includes one 30 minute private lesson and one group class. This gives the student a chance to get acquainted with the studio and it gives the studio a chance to determine which type of program is best for that individual.
In general it takes a new student four to six months of consistent weekly attendance to advance from one level to the next. Students are asked to respect themselves as well as their fellow dancers by attending the class which is appropriate for their dance level.
Some students, although beginner, grasp new concepts quickly. These people would therefore be comfortable in a beginner group class. Other individuals require more attention and we will suggest private lessons for a period of time, before entering a group, in order to prevent the student from becoming frustrated. Whenever possible, we like to recommend students take a combination of group and private lessons because it broadens their dance knowledge, helps them polish their dance skills and fosters camaraderie with fellow students and our supportive staff.
