With dance studios popping up on what seems like every corner, how do you make the right choice for you and your child? Not every studio is the the best at everything so begin by making a list of your priorities.
* Distance - How far are you willing to travel?
* Cost vs Quality - A studio who offers a low monthly tuition will most likely over fill classes sacrificing quality.
* Safety - Is the studio owner or instructors, that you're leaving your child with, CPR and First Aid Certified?
* Education and Professional Experience - Can the instructors offer a resume showing an education in dance instruction, teaching experience and a professional career in dance?
At AIM studio our tuition prices may be higher than other studios however we do not over fill classes. Our pre-school age classes hold 10 children and older classes are limited to 12-14 students.
Miss Andrea is CPR and First Aid Certified. Your child's safety is important. We have security locked doors so no person may enter the studio until buzzed in and no child may leave without door chime signaling an open door.
Miss Andrea holds a BFA degree and is an ABT certified teacher. She has taught for the Arts in Education Institute, Buffalo Performing Arts High School, Elementary Schools in both the Buffalo and Niagara Falls District, Poly Prep in Brooklyn and LEAP.

At the end of the day it is your choice and there are many choices out there so do your research, make a list and ask questions.
