All dancers should consider the typical ages when deciding which classes to take but understand that technical level overrides ages at all times. If the classes prove to be too simple or challenging; it will be at the parent AND instructors discretion to move the dancers up or down. All movement in class levels must be complete by February 1st, 2018. We will do evaluations at the end of every year to help guide you and your dancer on placement for the upcoming dance season. Each class has a maximum number of students allowed, to ensure substantial amounts of individual attention per student.
