Practice Guideline for Parents & Dancers!!

It is essential to the dancer's progress to include home practice time. With busy family lifestyles it takes some organization by the parent and dancer to ensure that practice time is part of the dancer's schedule.

Generally, for every hour of instruction (highland, stretch & strengthen, ballet) at the studio, there should be an hour of home practice on a weekly basis.

  • Primary Dancer - 20 minutes 3X weekly
  • Beginner/Novice - 30 minutes 3X weekly
  • Intermediate/Premier - 1 hour 3X weekly
  • Championship - 1 hour 5X weekly
