Placement: Level classes are available for students between ages 7 and 18 years of age starting at Level 1 through Level 3.   Level 1 classes are beginner level classes while Level 2 and 3 classes were developed for the more serious dancer seeking a progressive curriculum.  Director or instructor approval is needed for registering for these classes.  

Proper class placement is essential in the continual progress of students.  As such, students are placed in class based on a student's ability to retain and execute the required skills for each level and not by age alone or previous years’ experience.   A student's ability to successfully progress through each level is based on attendance, as well as the ability to retain and comprehend technical terms.   New students with prior experience should call the studio for proper class placement.  Although previous ballet training is not required for admission to our jazz, tap, lyrical and musical theater classes, the technical training of ballet provides a strong foundation for all other dance forms.  Students will enhance and improve their progress in other dance styles by attending ballet class.    If you are unsure of what class to register for, please contact us.
