  • What ages do you start classes?
    We begin classes: Tumbling at 18 months, assisted by a caregiver Dance at 2 years old. Every child is different when it comes to entering new activites in new enviroments with new people, let that sink a tiny person it can be overwhelming and it's not uncommon for a child with any personality to be come overwhelmed. We ask that you stay calm, remember these are your little people and they want you to reassure them see you as their protector. Be patient it may take sometime for your child to warm up to the instructor, other children, the thought of being away from you, being part of an organized activity. This is all normal, if they refuse to participate here are some suggestions.
  • Which class should I enroll my child in?
    For tumbling children 2 years, 11 months and under, please sign them up for a free trial in our Tumbling 1 class. For tumbling children 3 years and older, you will need to sign them up for an assessment. The coach will conduct an assessment of your child's skills and determine the level best for them to start out in. We are a skill based program, tumblers must meet all skill requirements at their specific level to move to the next level, students that have the most success regularly attend classes and most often are enrolled in multiple classes. For dance, our classes are designated by age 2-3.5, 3.5-5, 4.5-6, 7-10, 11+ we ask that you follow these guidelines. If your child is three years, four months, please put them in the 2-3.5 class. If the instructors feel that your child is dancing above the level that they are placed in then we will have that discussion with you to determine what level they will be placed in or moved to. Please look on our website under the programs menu and select "Dance" to see the class descriptions for each age/level. Here at Spark, we believe that dance is not a seasonal sport, for that reason we run a year round dance program, students are either advanced up based on their age or earlier based on their technique, skill and memorization. Although between January-June, we do not move students, at this time of the year dancer begin learning recital choreography. Each choreographer creates the routines with each dancer in mind and we ask that each dancer is committed to attending their regular classes to ensure that the recital is a positive and successful experience for all involved.

  • What if my child won't participate?
    As a parent, it's important to remember that every child is different when it comes to entering new activities in new environments with new people. It can be overwhelming for a child with any personality to be introduced to new experiences. It's normal for them to feel anxious or apprehensive. Therefore, we ask that you stay calm and remember that your little ones want you to reassure them and see you as their protector. Be patient with your child, as it may take some time for them to warm up to the instructor, other children, the thought of being away from you, or being part of an organized activity. If they refuse to participate, there are some suggestions that you can follow. The first step is to get them comfortable in the environment they are in. You can ask if they would like to sit and watch the class if they are not willing to participate. Bring their favorite toy or stuffed animal with them. You can suggest that they take it with them or show it how to do the "moves". Eventually, the toy can sit and watch them. If you see the children in class doing activities that your child has done at home, you can say things like "You can do that, can't you?" or "I bet you can do that, can't you?" Follow it up with "Do you want to give it a try?" You may have to stand next to them in the room/gym, encourage them, and/or demonstrate. However, we do not recommend assisting in tumbling skills without direction from the coach. It can take 4-6 weeks for some children to participate in class. If we feel that we are not making ANY progress in that time, then it is probably not the right time for your child to start this activity and you should try again in six months. If a child is what I call "screaming crying" and is inconsolable, this is a sign that you need to remove them from the situation to a quieter location. Additionally, it is difficult for the instructor to communicate over the sound to the other students, and it's not uncommon for the other students to become upset or frightened. Our ultimate goal is to enable children to participate independently in activities in all of our classes. We instruct children by teaching them skills, techniques, and vocabulary in every program. During the class, they learn to follow directions by listening, wait their turn by being patient, take turns by sharing, and use their words by effectively communicating. In between classes, we encourage them to socialize with other children to improve their social skills and put away their personal belongings in the designated storage spaces. We also teach them to change shoes, put on their coats and backpacks independently.
  • Can I watch the class?
    Yes, we offer a live streaming service that you can log into and watch your child in their class. Due to the limited space in dance studio, parents can drop dancers off and pick them up from our entrance door. The chairs are for dancers to change shoes, store their bags/jackets and take breaks between classes. If your child is under 4 years old, you may stay on site if you feel they need assistance using the restroom. No other children/siblings should be in the waiting area during classes, this causes distraction for our students and staff members. For these situations, we ask that you wait in your car.
