Blog

Too many people make the mistake of assuming that they are not going to be able to be able to take the dance classes they have always wanted to take because of the cost associated with this activity. If you find that you are worried about how to fit it in with your budget, you might want to scroll through the following money-saving tips:

Look For Advertised Specials

A lot of places that offer dance classes will advertise some specials, either online or in the local paper. The special might be a discounted rate for a month of classes. Then again, it might be an offer to take one or two classes for free, as this will allow you to give it a try so you can decide if it is really for you before you pay for future classes. If you are not able to find any advertised specials, it wouldn't hurt to contact the dance studio to ask if they plan on releasing any in the near future.

Shop For Used Dance Wear

You and your dance partner will need to buy the appropriate dance clothes according to the type or style of dance you will be performing. Between the outsides, the shoes, and the bags to carry it all in, it can add up to be a lot of money. If you are looking for another way to save some cash, you can look for used dance clothes. Even if you insist on buying brad new shoes, the gently used clothing can be perfect. After all, you are only wearing them a few hours a week. Also, by shopping at your local thrift stores or through online venues, you may be able to afford some extra dance outfits so you do not always have to wear the same thing when you go.

Look For A Private Instructor

Do not make the mistake of assuming that private instruction is always the more expensive option. In some cases, people are able to find that they can save a lot of money by hiring a freelance dance instructor who will teach them and their partner for a much cheaper price. One of the reasons they might be able to charge less is because they can teach you in your home or theirs. They do not have to worry about paying for the expensive overhead that is associated with running a full-time dance studio.

Get Kids Involved in Musical Theater

My name is Alyssa, and I am here to show you why musical theater is the perfect activity for your children. I graduated from college with a degree in musical theater, and I now run a program for kids from kindergarten through high school. We learn about acting, singing and dancing. After each session, we perform a play. The kids get so much out of the experience. Even if they never go on to a career in musical theater they learn to work in groups, to perform in front of an audience and to have self confidence! I hope I can convince you to enroll your kids in a musical theater program.
