Students in all other levels can only move up if the instructor feels they have progressed and our ready. Following Recital, instructors fill out an evaluation card for students in their class/s which states whether they feel the student is ready for the next level. In many of our Intermediate-Advanced level classes, it is typical for students to take for two years in a level.


WHAT CLASS DO YOU RECOMMEND STUDENTS TAKE?

- Although Ballet isn't for everyone, we definitely recommend it as it is the basis of all dance. It will give dancers a strong basic technique that will benefit them in other dance classes.
