Keeping Attendance, Motivation and Interests Up

Rewards for Young Dancers
At the end of class for a job well done, thanks to, we are offering Ballet coloring pages. This will give the little ones something to look forward to receiving each week. When finished coloring they will have pages they can proudly display and learn from at home or in our Studio.
Perfect Attendance
For Ages 10 and up I offer recognition for them not missing class with a group photo in this post and on the NJ Dancer Network. ( At this age they understand the importance of class attendance and they also tend not to feel "left out" if they are not included in the photo for a missed class. It is understood as a reward and a reason to keep their attendance up. The younger ones would be more likely not to understand my intentions and would most likely look at me very sad as if to say, "why am i not in the photo?" Also, not all parents want their younger children displayed on the Internet. For these reasons I keep the "Reward" for ages 10 and up.

Here they are...
