How is a child’s class placement determined?
The age of a dancer is used only as a guideline. Other deciding factors are the child’s ability to learn, their emotional maturity, technical level, physical strength and flexibility. Dance educators develop “an eye” for evaluating a dancer’s skill level and potential. We want to assure that our students are getting the best possible training. Students are often placed into a different level that is best suited to their needs. This happens within the first few weeks of the year.
