Minute Masterclass Episode 37
Welcome to your one-minute masterclass. I’m Andrea Trench, founder of DiscoverDance. Choosing a time for your toddler and preschool classes can affect the overall behavior of your students, as well as class enrollment. Offering a suitable class time for your families will be determined by a few factors. Bottom line, families want convenience. And although you will certainly not please everyone, the more you can create daily schedules and routines that flow with ease, the more likely those class times will fill.
Research your local school schedules. When is morning drop off? How long would it take a family to drop off their child at school then drive their younger child to dance class? When do the buses unload their last student? How long would it take for that dancer to get home, change, have an afternoon snack, and get to your studio? Be considerate of meal times, naps, and working families’ schedules. Offering various options throughout the week is ideal. Something in the morning after older children are dropped off at school, a class after school before dinner, and a class after dinner or on the weekends for working families. The best way to determine class times is to continuously survey your families and pay attention to enrollment. For more information, visit DiscoverDance.com.
