Here at Dancio, we are committed to bringing you the absolute best in dance education, wherever you may be!

Dancers use classes to warm up before rehearsal, keep practicing on their own during holiday and school breaks, and add extra classes to their dance schedules from the comfort of their own homes.

But here’s something you might not have even considered yet - dance teachers and studio owners are signing up for Dancio classes, too! They’re using classes to inspire their own lesson plans and continue learning new teaching techniques from some of the most masterful teachers in American ballet.

We love that dance teachers are using Dancio to enrich the lives of their students and enhance their own teaching.

So, we poked around the internet to find other online resources you may want to check out if you’re a dance teacher or studio owner. Here’s our resource guide for everything from advice on marketing your classes to choosing music for recitals! Enjoy!
