How to Write Your Dance Studio’s FAQ Page

Why add a Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to your dance studio’s website? By preemptively addressing questions and offering insightful information, you’re not only making the process smoother for potential dancers and parents but also showcasing the heart and expertise behind your studio. This means a more seamless experience for your website visitors, and more curious visitors turned into loyal dance families. 


And, as a bonus, an FAQ page is excellent for your website’s search engine optimization. A win win!

So, you’ve decided to jazz up your dance studio’s website with an FAQ page, excellent choice! Not sure, though, where to start?

Here’s my #1 pro tip – The most effective FAQs are those that align with the questions and concerns posed by actual prospective dance families. Which happily makes an FAQ page much easier to write. Spend a little time jotting down any/all questions that you know are often asked by your prospects, and ask your office staff to do the same. Group the questions into categories, and then answer each question in turn for use on your FAQ page. Et voila! 


Ok, let’s make it even easier! Based on what I’ve heard from the studio owners whose websites I’ve built over the years, these are the most common sections and frequently asked questions to include on your own FAQ page. Add, delete, and tweak as necessary! The answers you’ll provide to each of the questions are, of course, up to you.
