Private Lessons - Choreography

Policies for Private Lessons

  • The DS Faculty, if necessary, will make adjustments to your Private Lesson application.  Areas of adjustment may include faculty requests, style requests, partner requests and private lesson selection.  All Private Lesson applications will be reviewed and final decisions will be made by the Competition Program Directors.  

  • Each Faculty member will be accepting approximately 10 private lessons at a time.   We will have 4 acceptance days, June 15th, August 1st, October 1st and December 1st.  You will be notified if your private lesson has been accepted or placed on a waitlist.  If your dancer has been placed on the waitlist, you have 2 options.  Remain on the waitlist until the next acceptance date or request a teacher change.  Any Graduating Senior Private Lesson will not be placed on a waitlist.  Note: Miss Jill and Miss Lauren will only be accepting approximately 15 private lessons each this season. 

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

  • Dance Spectrum Competitive Students are invited to enter their Private Lessons into competitions specified by the Dance Spectrum.  Any Private Lesson must get the permission of the Competitive Program 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 and rehearse 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. 

  • Please Note: Any dancer who hires an outside choreographer to choreograph their solo is subject to increased fees. 

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

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

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.
