There are so many choices of dance schools out there. In fact, dance schools are appearing on as many street corners as Dunkin' Donuts these days, so why should you choose us? Sure, I could mention the Marley flooring and foam sub-flooring; the two studios and large lobby; climate-controlled and air filtration systems, but besides being a small family-oriented, non-competitive dance school, here are a few reasons to consider En L'air.
Are the students happy? We want our students to enjoy class. That's easy when they're small, but it gets harder as dance classes become more technical and difficult. So we teach children how to enjoy the learning process so they will enjoy every single class. That feeling of accomplishment and pride when you finally achieve that pirouette you've been working on, or your split that you never thought you would get and the joy you feel performing on stage.
I don't have time to get to the Dance Store. Fitting in a trip to the dance store between soccer practice, dance classes, karate, and / or your son's baseball practice is just not possible. That is why we have an in-studio dance store where we can measure your child properly for shoes and leotards, etc. Our dress code is simple, practical and affordable. You may even order everything through our online store and pick up at the studio and pay NO shipping charges! Make a shoe fitting appointment today or order online now.
Are you able to talk to a real person when you have questions? Yes, you have multiple ways of contacting the studio in addition to calling. With technology such as it is today, you can Text, E-mail, FB messenger, whichever is your preferred method. We respond promptly and by that we mean within an hour, if not immediately. The only time this changes is on Saturdays after we close for the weekend, but you are a priority and we make every effort to respond to you promptly.
I can't sit through a 3-hour recital. I don't blame you. That is why our shows are always 90-minutes or less. This season, our spring show, Toyland is 1 hour 27 minutes and that includes the Father/Daughter Dance at the end!
Is it affordable? Yes, it is! We offer sibling discounts, referral discounts, and we don't charge late fees. Are we the least expensive around? No, probably not, but we back up our prices by providing your child with a high-quality, comprehensive dance education. Every student has different dance goals, but rest assured, they will have the foundation and skills necessary to go on and dance in college, community dance companies, or one day teach if that is their wish.
