Subject: First time we moved, we got a recommendation from our TC -- it was not the best experience. Second time we moved

The second time we moved, we visited all the schools to get a sense of the teaching style, class size, etc. I also spent much time talking to parents and found at every school they were incredibly honest -- from the parents at one school who spoke about the politics and "favoritism" to the school where the parents said the teacher's choreography was interesting, but not always appreciated by the judges. (Other questions you might want to ask include fundraising responsibilities, availability of private lessons and the expectation to do private lessons, workshops, majors and the fees associated with attending -- most schools will charge a fee to help fund the TC's travel, but the cost varies per school -- teams and teams commitments)

Depending on how long your dancer has been at this, they'll get a feel for where they felt most comfortable and at "home." My dancers knew immediately which school they wanted to join.

BTW, the TC that made a recommendation also recommended our second school. The first school was just starting out and the old TC wanted to help the new TC build enrollment.
