Age/School Grade is our foundational 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 levels are as follows: Preschool (ages 3-5, or in Preschool), Combo (ages 5-7, or grades k/1), Elementary (ages 7+ or grades 2-4), Intermediate (ages 10+ or grades 5-7), Advanced (ages 13+ or grades 8 and up) 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 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, or possibly reduced to a 30 minute class. The schedule is subject to change.

 Performance Group

Jr. and Sr. Performance Groups are by invitation only. Lessons will be in jazz and lyrical technique, with choreographed performances in each. Performance group has an attendance policy, additional class requirements and extra fees associated with conventions and performances (outside our annual recital). Group members are expected to be a positive example within the studio and the public face of In Step outside the studio.
