Private Lessons - Choreography

Policies for Private Lessons

  • Any student applying for a Private Lesson must be currently enrolled in one weekly non-performing ballet class and the style of the Private Lesson you are applying for.

  • Completing the application does not automatically ensure a Private Lesson. All Private Lessons are considered a privilege and are given at the discretion of the faculty. Decisions are based on the ability, effort, attendance, attitude of the student and their progress in their regular weekly classes.

  • Dance Spectrum Competitive Students are invited to enter their Private Lessons into the competitions specified by the Dance Spectrum. 

  • Any Private Lesson must get the permission of the director before participating in any other competitive events as an independent entry. If permission is granted, understand a DS Faculty member is not required to attend. 

  • It is the responsibility of the student to retain the choreography given during rehearsals and clean up sessions. To aid in the education process, parents are encouraged to video tape at the end of each session.

  • Private Lessons will be suspended if Dance Spectrum accounts are not kept current and/or attendance policies are not maintained. 

  • ALL Private Lessons will be performing in the Private Lesson Showcase. 

  • Graduating Seniors will be invited to perform their Private Lessons in the Dance Spectrum Recitals. 

  • Any dancer who choses an outside choreographer to choreograph their solo, are subject to be charged a higher private lesson fee.

Private Lessons - Technique

This is a perfect opportunity to work one on one with a faculty member. The teacher will hone in on your specific needs and design the whole lesson just for you.  You don’t have to have a specific focus to take private lessons, but it helps to communicate with your teacher about your goals. We offer technique private lessons in Ballet, Jazz, Acro and Tap.
