Frequently Asked Questions
Encore Dance Studio, Orlando's favorite Dance Studio, wants it as easy as possible for everyone to get involved in such an amazing activity for their children! As anyone knows, when picking something for your very own child, you want it to be perfect and no surprises!
Below are a few of the most common questions asked by dance parents. If there are more questions please feel free to contact us here, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing your children’s faces light up with smiles in one of our classes!
Do dancers need to be potty trained?
We can say a majority of dance studios around Orlando require their little dancers to be potty trained. Encore allows dancers to join class before that big step in their lives. We just ask that if your child is still waiting to jump over the potty trained hurdle, that you stay throughout the entire class just incase they need your help.
Do parents need to stay and watch?
Parents! Go shopping, go make dinner, have time for yourself! Our trusting professional staff have a complete hour ready for your child to enjoy. We encourage you to watch from the window, but if parents would like to step out for a moment that is fine too. Our front desk will contact you if they need you back a little earlier. If your child isn’t potty trained please resort to FAQ #1.
Can parents enter the class to watch their children?
While we do keep the door closed to avoid distraction, for many of classes, we have the parents come in the last 5 minutes of class, so you can see all that your child has been working on throughout the class. This is a great time to take video so that they can go home and have a visual aide helping them rehearse.
What do we do, my daughter has tried the class once and doesn’t like it?
If you’re at the point of trying to decide if dance is right for your young dancer we first suggest a couple of things. First, give your dancer a month to really see if he/she likes dance. You’ll be able to determine if that class/teacher/style is congruent with his/her appetite for learning. Second, if you find that the current class is not for your child, please visit or call our front desk, and you can try any other class, FOR FREE, until we find the right one for you!
Can we join a class at anytime of the year?
We understand that you’re probably juggling with soccer, football, work, and school. For that very reason, Encore Dance Studio has open enrollment throughout the entire year! You can join a class, as long as there is room, at anytime of the year regardless the season.
Can my dancer rejoin anytime?
As long as there is room in the class, dancers can rejoin at any part of the year.
What do we wear to the class?
All of our classes have a selected dress attire from Curtain Call for Class. If you would like more information for your child's class contact us, and we would be more than happy to send you all the information and how to order your dancewear!
When do classes start?
Our new season starts on August 19th! We, at Encore believe in how important it is for children to maintain their technique and keep on dancing through the summer. This is why we are a year-round studio, offering classes through the summer as well!
When is the Dance Recital?
We hold our recital each year at the end of August! We also have a smaller Holiday Show in the month of December!
Are there family rates of 2 or more kids?
Encore is proud to offer a family rate discount to any and all families enrolling two or more dance students. Please contact the front desk for more information on that rate.
