Classes

Our objective is to place dancers with other dancers of like ability in order to provide a strong curriculum of skill, focus and challenge for all. Therefore, age is not necessarily a factor in class placement decisions. However, you will see approximate age ranges listed next to some classes below. These listed age ranges are to be used as a guideline when starting classes for the first time.

Each class has a list of specific techniques that will need to mastered, before progressing to the next class level. A dancer may possibly be moved up by instructor request during the school year if they acquire the necessary skills. It is customary for a student to stay in the same level multiple years in order to master skills before moving into another level. If you have questions regarding your dancer’s placement, instructors will be available for placement by audition.
