Why smaller class sizes?

At Soul Connexion, we aim to keep our class sizes to a maximum of 12-16 students. This smaller student to teacher ratio ensures that our teachers can give adequate personal attention to each child.

This results in a better teacher-student relationship, increases a child’s self-esteem, and provides higher quality learning that they can be confident with. Smaller class sizes also cultivates a sense of belonging and community that our studio stands for.

Our instructors are experts at sharing their love of dance, yoga, and fitness with their students while teaching the necessary techniques that will allow them to strengthen their skills and reach their goals.
