Selection 2: Number of Students
Consumers can choose the power of the voice amplifier according to the number of students in the dance studio. Different voice amplifiers have different power and different voice amplification effect and quality.
So dance teachers of different ages can choose the most suitable voice amplifiers for themselves by their teaching scenarios and the number of students in their dance studios.
For kindergarten dance teachers, our recommended voice amplifier is the one with an output power of 5-10W voice amplifier. The reason for the recommendation is that the output power of the 5-10W voice amplifier is suitable for the number of students within 30-80. The number of kindergartens is generally in this range, so this type of voice amplifier is the most suitable.
According to the size of the primary/secondary school dance studio and the number of students in the dance studio, we recommend 10-18W voice amplifiers for primary/secondary school dance teachers. This is because the number of students applying for voice amplifiers with an output power of 10-18W is 80-120. The number of students in dance studios in primary and secondary schools is generally in this range, so this type of voice amplifier is the most suitable.
For the number of students at university or outdoor teaching, we recommend that dance teachers in college or outdoor use voice amplifiers of 20W and above, as these high-powered voice amplifiers allow 180 people to hear clearly.
Selection 3: Voice Amplification Range in Dance Studio
Before shopping for a voice amplifier, you need to know how large the voice amplification area of the voice amplifier is and how far in between the teacher and the students. Because not all power voice amplifiers amplify the same, the amplified area is also different. Consumers can choose the best voice amplifier for them based on the distance between them and their students.
Consumers also need to take into account the distance of sound transmission, because the distance of voice amplification in the dance studio is related to the output power of the voice amplifier. Some other parameters in the voice amplifier need to be considered. Because not all power voice amplifier parameters are the same.
First of all, for kindergarten dance teachers, we recommend the voice amplifier with an output power of 5-10W. The reason for the recommendation is that the output power 5-10W voice amplifier is suitable for the applicable site within 40 meters, the number of the kindergarten dance studios is generally within this range, so this type of voice amplifier is the most suitable.
According to the size of the dance room in primary and secondary schools, we recommend a 10-18W power voice amplifier. Because this type of voice amplifier is applicable to the venue area within 80 meters, the number of students in dance studios of primary and secondary schools is generally within this range. So this type of power voice amplifier is the most suitable.
Depending on the size of the university dance studio or outdoor venue, we recommend the use of 20W and 20W+ voice amplifiers for college dance teachers or outdoor dance teaching. This is because these high-power voice amplifiers have a large sound transmission area that can reach 1000 square feet.

Selection 6: Voice Amplifiers for Dance Teachers With Face Masks
In the face of the Covid19 pandemic, dance teachers teaching in indoor venues are now required to wear face masks, this situation may result in teachers teaching in the dance studio at a lower volume and speaking in a less-than-clear voice that students may not hear clearly. We recommend that dance teacher use high-powered amplifiers.

For indoor, dance teachers need to consider the size of the venue and the number of people to choose the right voice amplifier. For outdoor, the choice of voice amplifier should consider factors such as whether the dance movement is strenuous and the weather venue when teaching dance.
For outdoor teaching, we recommend the drop-proof, waterproof, and dustproof 18W wireless voice amplifier.

Selection 9: Voice Amplifier for Online or Offline Teaching
Due to the global pandemic, dance teachers are one of those who faced difficulties and challenges when teaching their students. Today, classes are done either offline or online. If there’s one helpful gadget that assisted dance teachers during this time, they are the voice amplifiers!
Voice amplifiers can assist teachers in the new normal manner of teaching in the following ways:
Speak loud and clear
Voice amplifiers will assist dance teachers in exerting less effort in their delivery of teachings to be discussed with their students. Voice amplifiers will perform the work for them instead of giving their lectures loudly or manually amplifying their voices.
As a result, dance teachers will not strain their voices while giving lessons since they can speak quietly, and the voice amplifier will deliver a clear and loud message to the students.
Reduce your mental stress
One of the most formidable obstacles that a dance teacher must overcome is stress. It’s impossible to avoid, especially when pupils don’t receive or understand what the dance teacher is saying, resulting in a barrage of questions.
However, it may have an impact on their ability to teach in the future. Voice amplifiers can reduce mental stress since they will present lectures to the students loud and clear, and the dance teacher will have confidence in all of their efforts in discussing how well the students understood the lessons.
Learning that is more efficient
Dance teachers can deliver loud and clear lessons to pupils by utilizing the voice amplifier, which provides the highest audio quality for improved learning. Students will be able to hear the information without any sound barriers, typically caused by low-quality audio output from some microphones on dance teachers’ devices.
Examples include those utilized in online classes, which will be established as the ‘new normal’ mode of schooling in pandemic situations.
The presentation is similar to that of a classroom
Suppose the dance teacher prefers to use a chalkboard, whiteboard, charts, or any other teaching approach. In that case, the voice amplifier can be worn on the waistband and used to discuss the lesson with the connected microphone if the dance teacher has a blackboard at home.
Because the voice amplifier is also equipped with Bluetooth, the dance teacher can use the wireless microphone. The dance teacher can pick between the two options based on their preferences.
Selection 10: Whether to Play Music in Class
Dance teachers need to emphasize their lesson by talking clearly and at the right volume in class. But, when they talk aloud, it can cause fatigue in their throat area that can give them voice problems. Thus, they need to keep muscle stress to a minimum.
The esophageal muscle is considerably affected when we converse for an extended period, especially with music teachers who offer lessons to their students for several hours.
Dance teachers will not need to shout for students to understand clearly what is being said if they use a voice amplifier. Dance teachers will be able to give their students the finest education possible by staying in good shape.
With the help of voice amplifiers, dance teachers can now enjoy teaching while protecting their voices. The Voice Amplifier is equipped with USB Aux, wherein you can connect it to your laptop or desktop to give a power supply.
While the voice amplifier is connected to your device, it is also charging power to itself, so you do not need to worry about the amplifier’s capability. Dance teachers can use the voice amplifier for their entire class schedule.
Always invest in a good headset and sound equipment. Clear audio is critical when teaching.
Get a good microphone, preferably with a wireless headset so your students can hear you loud and clear and you can hear them as well, whether you’re doing a live class or recorded one.
Selection 11: Voice Amplifier for Dancing
Teaching your own students to practice dance well which is a very rewarding thing for consumers. However, human energy is limited, and how to be able to provide a high-quality level of teaching is a concern for every dance teacher. We recommend that you use a voice amplifier to solve this problem.
The best voice amplifier has a variety of features that can be used simultaneously. Let us discuss the different functions you can get from a voice amplifier:
The latest technology for Bluetooth connectivity gives an excellent experience to its users. Voice amplifiers and amplified systems carry a top-notch performance when it comes to Bluetooth connection. Take note that not all Bluetooth voice amplifiers have the same quality when it comes to sound output. When choosing the best voice amplifier, check all the functions that come with it such as the wattage and connectivity coverage.
Battery and Power Life
Chargeable devices are more useful and economical instead of using disposable batteries or rechargeable batteries. If you want a long-lasting voice enhancer device, choose one with a battery life of at least 5-8 hours or more.
Voice amplifiers have enduring and durable batteries so you can use them for a longer time. Since the charging cables are mostly USB-port capable, you can have more options in getting it re-charged.
With rechargeable batteries, there are no more messy wires when you use them. Wireless gadgets are very convenient and even the charging cables are just long enough to be kept in a small case. They are very portable you don’t need other adapters or cables to make them work.
A wireless voice amplifier’s circuit design should minimize white noise and undesired ambient sounds, allowing you to have a wonderful and fulfilling listening experience! It should filter out and cancel out background disturbances so that you don’t have to crank up the volume to hear the sound clearly.
For wireless headsets or microphones, the active noise-canceling function may reduce excessive or unwanted noise because its structure provides a barrier that filters high-frequency sound waves. This way, the noise is reduced by actively eliminating or filtering lower-frequency sound waves.
Added Features and Functions
Aside from amplifying your voice, there are basic and enhanced features that you can get from a voice amplifier. It comes with a built-in recorder, FM radio, TF/micro sd card port, Aux and USB ports, etc. There are specific functions that you can get from different models, so you can only buy the unit that will fit your needs.
Selection 12: Voice Amplifier for Vocal Paralysis
When the nerve impulses to your voice box (larynx) are interrupted, vocal cord paralysis occurs. The muscles of the vocal cords become paralyzed as a result of this. A patient with vocal paralysis cannot speak or experience difficulty in speaking.
The capacity to talk and even breathe can be compromised by vocal cord paralysis. That’s because your vocal cords, also known as vocal folds, are responsible for more than just sound production.
When you have vocal paralysis, a voice amplifier can help you in many ways. Since talking is hard, a voice amplifier can help you communicate and lessen the symptoms that come with it. When you have this sickness, you can experience hoarseness, or your vocal pitch is very low. You cannot shout and even speak louder because it affects your breathing.
While on treatment, it is advisable to use a voice amplifier that can help amplify your voice to talk with ease and lessen the difficulty. Here, we created voice amplifiers that are good for medical problems. One of our highly recommended models is the wireless 20W voice amplifier.
