Re: Studio vs. private instructors Posted by dancer1978 4/19/2013 1:04:00 PM
I would like some insight to this, as well. I am part of FADS and have been there less than a year. I really get along well with my instructor, and don't want to switch to someone else, but I feel like I could be doing better than I am. I don't think it's entirely my instructor, but I'm not sure if I'm getting taken there. I had no idea, when I joined the studio, that the cost was so high. Dancing has been a passion/desire of mine my entire life, but I question whether I'd get better instruction...or better quality (not sure how to state it) teaching if I went to a private instructor. It's nice to get the hi's and great to see you's when I walk in the door, but I'm realistic enough to know I'm not that great of a dancer, despite being told I have "talent" I worry that I'm getting b.s. from the company as a whole, but not necessarily from my teacher. I feel like he is a straight shooter. I just wonder if I could learn dancing without as much cost and maybe less b.s.
