Dance Intensive

Scholars Program

For students with the above-average ability & a keen love of dance. 

 

Not designed necessarily as a professional training program, but an in-depth study of dance with a strong emphasis on physicality. 

 

Many students derive more satisfaction from physical exercise in an art program rather than a sports program.

 

Today's negative distractions can often be off-set when a student finds a sincere interest or activity to apply their attention to during their academic years.

 

The London Dance Centre is offering this opportunity at a more affordable price than regular studio tuition, to assist parents in finding an activity to stimulate their children and produce competent, self-disciplined, & motivated young men & women.

After 50 years of teaching, I believe students twelve through eighteen need a special interest or passion, to help them navigate the pitfuls of adolescence.  Whether it is soccer or dance, the pursuit of a much-loved activity occupies the time & interest of a student. 

 

Parents may often think, this more Intensive study will detract from academic studies.  In most cases, I find it is the opposite. 

 

Students who spend more time with an extra-curricular activity they enjoy will usually do better in school.  They learn time management, scheduling themselves to allow for their passion.  They tend not to procrastinate & organize themselves to accommodate the time spent in pursuit of their hobby.

 

With very rare exceptions, student's academic marks go up within the first year of more Intensive dance study.    The memorization required in dance & attention to detail also makes a student learn more quickly in all areas of their lives.

 

Doing something you enjoy or love also reduces the depression & anxiety that can appear in adolescence, compared to students who only have school studies outside the home.
