Mary: What is the difference between dancing at a studio and dancing at school?
I’m on the jv dance team at my school and I was planning on going to a studio to dance next year and then trying out for varsity dance team senior year. I was worried that dancing at a studio would be different and i wouldn’t make varsity. Can you please tell me the difference between dancing at school on a dance team and dancing at a studio? Thank you. 🙂

usually at a studio you have more freedom in how many and what type of classes you take and open to anyone of all levels
at a dance school it is more focused and you are making a commitment and usually striving to become a dancer
however if you are dancing as an option at your school it will probably not be as intense and the quality of dancers might not be as good as if you had gone to the studio since there is a broader audience…however it also depends on the school or studio
sometimes not always the case though
There are only a few differences… at a studio, there is no limit on how many different styles of dance you do. You have your dance teacher and maybe a helper teacher. at a studio, especially if you are competitive, like me, the are vey serious most of the time. Considering that your putting on a recital and you’re doing competitions. It wouldn’t be that much of a change from dancing at schoool or dancing at the studio. At a studio, they might focus more on technique. At my studio, the season runs from september and we have competitions in January, march, April and a three recitals in may. We spend a few weeks gaining skills and keeping our flexibility in check. At your school, they might focus more on the actual DANCE ROUTINE. But besides that, it would be pretty much the same if your dance team is as serious about dancing as a studio is.Answer by Sarita Viedas
School is alot more strict and a studio you have more freedom. I would choose to go to a school if your serious about dancing and want to make it your career.
