To help you choose the right class for your child’s age and level, we suggest you refer to the ages printed on the schedule and your teacher’s recommendation.
A student will stay at one particular level for an average of two years. (Pre-Dance age 4 & 5, Level 1 age 6 & 7, Level 2 age 8 & 9, Level 3 age 10 & 11, Level 4 age 12+)
Intermediate / Advanced levels require teacher placement and prerequisite-level dance experience.
If you are not sure about your child’s placement, ask your teacher or email or call Miss Debbie. Some students should be able to advance to the next level and/or add more classes to increase technique and performance. Advancing to higher levels of difficulty in dance is not like advancing grades in school. It may take 2, 3, or more years for a student to advance from one level to the next. There are guidelines for uniformity of teaching and specific advancement requirements. Recommendations may be made by the instructor when any student signs up for any classes at a higher level than those in which they are now enrolled. A student’s dedication, work ethic, and behavior in class along with their adherence to dress codes & studio rules may also be taken into consideration. Multiple classes in various forms are encouraged to enhance training & achieve excellence.
Studying Ballet is encouraged then all other forms of dance can build upon it. The old adage holds true – the more practice (classes) – the better you get. We understand that some take dance as a recreational activity but in order to be an accomplished strong dancer you need to come to class several hours a week. It generally takes years of strength training and technique guided by a professional to go on Pointe.
Ballet 2 students are encouraged to take class twice per week.
Ballet 3 students are required to take class twice per week.
Ballet 4 / Pre-Pointe students are required to take class twice per week but strongly recommended taking it 3 times.
Ballet / Pointe students are required to take class 3 times a week (& Pre-Pointe students wishing to be considered for Pointe) *
* Teacher placement required for Pre-Pointe and Pointe.
