General Class Information
- PRIVATE LESSONS
Dancers should enroll in levels appropriate to their age and abilities. If dancers are not sure what level to enroll in, they may set up a private evaluation for $25.00. Level assessments and evaluations will also be conducted the first two weeks of classes. The dancers class placement may be adjusted at the discretion of the instructor. Although it is not a requirement of all classes, we strongly recommend dancers enroll in a ballet technique class to develop an understanding of and master the basic principals of all dance forms.
The following are guidelines to help determine into which level a student should enroll. Please remember all students progress at different rates and the ultimate decision on the appropriateness of a student's level will be determined by the instructor.
Beginner/Advanced Beginner – Beginner students through two years of training in a specific dance discipline.
Intermediate – Two to four years of training in a specific dance discipline.
Advanced – Five or more years of training in a specific dance discipline.
Pre-Professional – Most advanced level offered, by in-class audition or Pre-Professional teacher evaluation only.
