We offer classes for Pre-School, Kinder, Elementary and six technique levels: Beginning through Advanced. Designations of class level by number on our schedule should not be considered grade levels. Change of level is not automatic; rather, the student's age, frequency of class attendance, interest level, concentration and natural ability are all taken into consideration as the teachers and director suggest class levels for individual needs. Ballet students are considered for pointe work based on their body alignment, strength and technical maturity. A minimum of two technique classes in ballet must be taken per week in order to participate in a pointe class. Students who have reached Intermediate and Advanced Levels in a chosen dance style must be enrolled in a minimum of two technique classes in that dance style and must include Ballet in their studies when they reach Level Three.
