The student programs begin with Level A, around age 7, and build up to Level C. These classes are designed to bring out the best in each student focusing on technique, musicality, artistry, and performance. Whether you are a recreational performer or aspiring star, classes will be fun, informative, and professional. Students will progress through set levels of instruction based on technique, maturity, focus, and etiquette. Student class designations are not yearly progressions and they are not based on age. New students will be evaluated by the directors or teacher to determine proper class placement.
This level begins around age 7 with students learning the basics of movement, vocabulary, and style in their chosen fields of study.
This level begins after the student has showed a good understanding and execution of movement patterns, vocabulary, maturity, and musical awareness. Students at this level will start refining their crafts with a focus on musicality/phrasing and performance while increasing their movement vocabulary. Ballet students generally transition to Pointe during this level.
Level C is where technique blossoms into artistry. Students get to this level by showing determination, strong use of musical phrasings, and an enhanced comprehension and execution of movement vocabulary. Students at this level work on turning difficult movements into effortless expression. A strong focus on performance and emotive qualities are stressed along with finding ones own "voice" within the choreography.
