MKS Watch Week FAQ’s & Philosophy

We are very intentional about Watch Weeks here at MKS!

We have them once a month so that parents/family members can see the progress that students are making from one month to the next.  Just like growth of a child, if you look at them every day, it makes it more difficult to see the height they are gaining from one day to the next.  We are working on new curriculum each month, so it allows for a more objective perspective of their progress.

We have 3 studio rooms and have found that rotating the Watch Weeks helps to provide more seating and more evenly spread out the traffic in the lobby as well as in the parking lot.  Studio A classes have Watch Week during the first week of classes each month, Studio B and B/C during the second week, and Studio C during the third week.  There are no Watch Weeks during the last week of each month.


We also have clear windows installed into each room with blinds that are somewhat see-through.  During non-Watch Weeks, it is possible to be able to at least see the students, although not perfectly clearly, through these blinds.  Having the shades drawn allows for students to be able to focus in on what is happening inside the classroom as well as experiencing the leadership and authority of the instructor.  This promotes order and proper structure of class to allow for freedom of learning and growing for the students.  During Watch Weeks, having clear glass allows the parents to view and also allows the students to have the experience of having an audience that they are aware of and can see.  This helps to prepare the students for the dance concert and other performance experiences in life.  This is a big reason as to why we do not have one-way mirror glass or video feeds between the lobby and classrooms.
