A Word of Caution:
If it looks like a duck and sounds like a duck…
Music and movement programs across the nation have largely become outdated, generic, faceless, “cookie cutter” programs with some offering all the bells and whistles. Some may use impressive gym size and aesthetics, these programs offer lofty claims, clever advertising campaigns, used with cute phrases and children to continue drawing in the trusting, unsuspecting consumer.
Whether the program be brand name or a localized
entity, inquirers should ask:
Does it closely monitor each child’s progress?
Are classes too crowded for individual instruction leaving children waiting in lines?
How much experience do the “instructors” have? Are they recently trained, with little gymnastics background? Check web sites to see who they are hiring.
Beware of lofty claims like consulting “experts” in music and movement for continuing program refinement. In short don’t take a program’s word, do your homework. These are serious issues to consider when selecting a dynamic program for your child.
