  • Age categories are only one guideline in determining level. Teachers may reccommend movement to a different level outside the age category. Such reccommendations are based (but are not limited to) technical level, maturity, attendance and attitude. Our groupings by age are as follows: Preschool (ages 3 & 4), Kinder (ages 4-6), ages 6-8, 8-10, 10-12, 13+ and Adult (18+). Please note that we have groupings that overlap in age. If your dancer falls into an overlapping age group, then placement will be based on a combination of all other factors to find the best fit.
  • Minimum of 4 dancers to run a class. Classes with fewer than 4 dancers will be canceled or postponed. The schedule is subject to change.
