Here are the ones I can think of right now based on what I wish my studio would improve on- -take amex (though taking cc's would be a must) -stop covering the mirrors with decorations -offer more advanced group classes and stick to what is on the group schedule -don't interrupt my lesson with questions about showcases, entries, comps or to introduce me to people -also, make sure I get my full 45 minutes--don't show up late or cut my lesson early for a smoke break or to talk about entries etc -get current with technology! I would love to schedule my lessons online, check my schedule online, see the group classes online (other than a picture of the printed calendar) and see a history of my lessons/classes etc. If PureBarre can do it, I would hope my studio could figure it out with what I'm paying them. -on that note, use social media! if the group class changes, the teacher for group changes, there is news of some sort, tweet/facebook it! have some sort of online presence so I can track these things! -lastly, have parties at least once a month so that we can meet/interact with other students (some we may never see otherwise) and also practice showcases and social dancing. consider this a reward and thank you to the students who pay so much to your studio!
