How many classes a week?
Here’s a question for fellow dance parents. How many classes a week does your dancer take? My 10 year old wants to play softball, dance, and maintain good grades this school year. What is an average number of classes per week for an intermediate dancer of her age?
It depends a lot on your daughter's school. My soon to be 8 year old is required to take a minimum of 2 classes per week this year. If her progress continues as it has, at age 10 she'll be required to take a minimum of 4 [ballet] classes per week, in addition to any character or elective classes. Another school near us requires only 2 classes per week for your daughter's age group (1 for mine), but at age 11 that jumps to 4 classes.
