Welcome Season 13!
I hope that everyone had a very relaxing and rejuvenating summer break over the past 2 weeks. It is hard to believe that it is now time to start Season 13 here at BDCS. It is an exciting year ahead and BDCS has made adjustments to our systems and processes. We are adding in new classes and schedules. Our team went to amazing teacher training to continue growing and pushing our students. Here is a closer look at what we have been working on and have planned for the upcoming season.
During the break I did an audit of our system and processes. I found some gaps in our communication and onboarding of new families. It became evident that these two areas needed some focus and improvement. I then looked into three different companies that offer a solution to help in communication and onboarding. After reviewing these three companies I decided on using a company called Studio Hub. It is an all in one communication hub for us to send emails, text messages, create engaging newsletters, and create an unique onboarding experience for new and existing families. I’m excited to launch this new program and I’m looking forward to hearing your feedback. As a matter of fact our first newsletter for season 13 was created and sent using this new program!
BDCS is growing!
The new space at 1341 Sandy Hill Road is exploding with activity! I’m exploding with excitement for season 13. We are growing and have the space to continue to grow. This growth means that we will be adding more classes and updating our schedule as we continue on the journey throughout season 13. So don’t be surprised if you get a notification of a new class alert. The best part is with growth comes new additions to our Rockstar Team! Throughout the year BDCS will continue to add new teachers and instructors to the schedule. I’m excited for our students to be able to learn from some of the best instructors in our area. The experiences and lessons learned will take them past the classroom and into their adult life. I’m looking forward to seeing the growth and impact we can make in our students’ lives.
BDCS Teacher Training!
In June BDCS became an affiliate studio with “More Than Just Great Dancing”. This is an organization that upholds a high standard for studios in the industry. They focus on a student first and safety first approach to teaching students. MTJGD provides training and tools that help BDCS be the best at what we do and it is an honor to be an affiliate studio. Our teachers attended a full day of training with MTJGD in July. The training included…
- Keeping Kids Center Stage
- Fostering Artistry in Early Childhood Education
- Teaching Language That Empowers
- Safety 101
- Leadership in the Classroom
- Body Positivity in the Studio
- Planning for Progress
- Training Technique: The Missing Link
- Props for All Ages and Stages
- The Mindful Teacher
BDCS invests in our teachers to make sure they provide the best possible training to your child. This was a jam packed day full of knowledge our team can bring back to the BDCS classroom. They are pumped for season 13!
As you can see, even though the students were on summer break, here at BDCS we were working hard to move forward into season 13 with fire and passion. Now it is time for classes to begin!
