Please note: Students will be placed into the appropriate class level based on assessment of skills and technique along with consideration for the age guidance shown below. If a student is found to be between levels, they may be advised to take the lower level class as well as the higher level or they may benefit from private lessons to develop fundamentals. Our dancers move through the levels based on careful, constant and individual assessment throughout the year. We offer a complimentary trial/placement class for all prospective students.
