Private Classes for Competition Dancers

The Benefits of Private Dance Classes for Competition Dancers

As a competition dancer, you know that precision, technique, and expression are key to scoring well. Private dance classes offer personalized instruction that targets these elements, providing you with the tools to elevate your performance and potentially achieve higher scores in competitions. At Free Movement Dance Studio, we've been supporting competition dancers since 2014. Here's why private dance classes are beneficial for competition dancers and how they can contribute to scoring better in competitions.

1. Focused Development of Foundational Techniques

In group classes, instructors have to manage various skill levels, limiting their ability to focus on individual needs. In private dance classes, the attention is solely on you, allowing for detailed instruction on foundational techniques essential for competition dancers. This tailored approach helps you to:

  • Master Extensions: Work on achieving greater range and control in your leg extensions.
  • Enhance Flexibility & Strength: Develop specific exercises to build flexibility and strength in key muscle groups.
  • Refine Floor Work: Improve your floor work with individualized feedback on form and transitions.
  • Hone Isolations: Perfect the ability to isolate movements for greater precision.
  • Perfect Jetés, Pirouettes, and Turns: Receive detailed guidance on these key technical elements.
  • Work on Splits: Increase flexibility and accuracy in your splits.
  • Variation Coaching: Customize your routines with unique variations to stand out in competitions.

2. Refinement of Performance Style and Expression

Competition dancers need more than technical skill; they require a distinctive performance style that captivates judges and audiences. Private dance classes allow you to develop and refine this style with focused attention on:

  • Creating & Refining Choreographies: Collaborate with your instructor to craft choreographies that suit your strengths.
  • Coordination Drills: Improve coordination to ensure seamless movements.
  • Endurance Building: Build the stamina needed for intense competition routines.
  • Eye Contact Techniques: Learn how to use eye contact effectively to connect with the audience.
  • Group Synchronization: If you're part of a team, private sessions can focus on synchronization and timing.
  • Partner Work Dynamics: Develop skills for working with partners, focusing on lifts and transitions.
  • Performance Quality Enhancement: Enhance your overall performance quality, including facial expressions and energy management.
  • Smooth Transitions and Formations: Work on creating smooth transitions and complex formations to add sophistication to your routine.

3. Mastery of Advanced Tricks and Skills

Competitions often require advanced tricks and skills that need special training and practice. Private dance classes provide a safe and focused environment for mastering these challenging elements, allowing you to:

  • Learn Aerial Techniques: Practice aerial moves with expert guidance and safety measures.
  • Perfect Back Bends, Cartwheels, and Handstands: Receive individualized feedback to ensure proper form and safety.
  • Master Handsprings, Jumps, and Walkovers: Develop confidence and consistency in these complex movements.
