The DuHadway Difference
“A curriculum-based teaching system ensuring success!”
Our goal is to provide a fun yet educational experience where students will learn the disciplined art of dance and movement in a structured classroom setting. We’ve found that our curriculum-driven approach not only provides a fun experience for your dancer while they are here, but it lays the groundwork for having even more fun as they advance to higher skill levels without struggling to learn the concepts. Our goal has always been “Fun with a Purpose.”
Placement in our studio ensures a professional approach to teaching combined with genuine love and appreciation of the art of dance. Initially, students are placed in classes based on age. The variety we offer, combined with our trained teachers, allows for dancers to be placed in the best classes for their current ability level where they can move forward with tremendous success. This ensures that the love of dance is nurtured without the frustration and feelings of being left behind the rest of the class, which can happen if forced into a setting that is beyond their current ability.
Our staff is trained in the curriculum developed by our studio owner, Miss Jillian. Working together with her staff members, they are constantly updating the curriculum to keep up with the changing trends in the dance industry. Since many of our staff members are trained educators, we have our finger on the pulse of the learning styles of the children in our communities, too.
- All instructors are specifically trained using the same lessons, well-developed exercises, and year-end outcomes
- Multiple instructional techniques so that each student can master the skills that are expected at each level
- Dancers continue seamlessly from season to season regardless of who is teaching
Finally, we strive to educate our students mentally as well as physically with the goal of building self-esteem and confidence. We feel this instructional perspective is a vital component of nurturing your dancer’s love of dance, as well as preparing them for challenges and opportunities they may face outside of the studio.
