    I’m so thankful that SoulFire (Lynette and Cindy) had a spot for me in their Wednesday night belly dancing class. Cindy is an incredible instructor and dancer, and Lynette was so encouraging in helping me get started.

    My two daughters attend dance classes at Soulfire Studios. They are 11 and 13. They have been students at Soulfire for several years. Throughout the years that we have chosen Soulfire, the girls have taken ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, and modern classes. I have watched their dance skill level and fitness level grow steadily. The best part of Soulfire, in our opinion, is the teaching staff. The teachers here are professional dancers, so are very knowledgeable and skilled. The ballet teachers have ABT certifications, which I love. I also like how the teachers treat the students. They correct the kids, push them to do their best, challenge them to improve, yet do all of this with kindness. I also appreciate the fact that the studio is sensitive to keeping music and costumes appropriate to age level. This is important to us as parents. The students are open and accept new kids readily. The owners of the studio are friendly, and always available to answer questions and just to talk and build relationship with parents. There are many choices in our city for dance instruction. I continue to choose Soulfire Studios. We have never been anything but pleased with the dance education our daughters are receiving.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We just added a new Tea Party and Mini camp for ages 3-8yrs based on the new Disney Movie Moana - the camp was a blast! We had face painting, story-time, dancing with beautiful polenesian costumes, an adorable themed tea party and then all the little dancers got to make a keepsake craft! It was so much fun and makes a nice addition to our regular list of camps incuding our Princess Camp, Pinkaliciou Camp, Frozen Camp, Tinker Bell Tea and so many more. For the Adult dancers we have a new class this year that is a cardio dance fitness on Saturdays with Cassie - that class is a super fun way to burn of some calories!


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Especially in Ballet - above all else, you need to know what curriculum your instructor is using. Having an impressive professional bio is not enough to qualify a dancer to be a dance TEACHER. Compare it to learning math - just because someone is an engineer does not mean they remeber what a kindergardener or 3rd grader or even a high school senior needs to be learning at their exact age and ability. Whenever you are talking baout a physical activity, you need to be certain that your student wll not be thrown too much to fast and risk a potentially serious injury. A qualified instructor will be able to break their curriculum down for you in very specific ways and show you how it progresses in a healthy way from the basic all the way to the advanced steps. There are many good dance curriculums available and a variety of ways instructors can be accredited to teach those methods. We highly reccomend ABT's National Training Curriculum and you can learn more about it at ABT.org but it is by no means the only available method - be sure you know which method any ballet teacher is following and be very wary of those who do not use a set curriculum.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Knowing your goals as a dancer (or dance parent) can be extremely helpful in letting a teacher place you in the right course. Are you looking for a fun way for your child to socialize? Are you hoping they could make a career as an artist? Is your student very serious? reserved? outgoing? energetic? Do you want to enhance those qualities with a class or are you looking to bring out the opposite qualities? If the classes ar fo yourself - are you looking to refine existing skills or add new ones? All of these answers can be most helpful to getting you in the perfect class!
