**levels are not determined by age but by ability, ages listed are a general guideline**
The level of focus and commitment we demand from our students increases with the dancer’s age. We realize a career in dance may not be the goal of all students, however, we are committed to providing solid, professional dance training to every student giving them the opportunity to take dance as far as they aspire. Consequently, we require an increasing number of weekly classes as students progress to the upper levels of dance instruction. This is the best way to maintain the fundamental principles of dance technique and develop the elements needed for more advanced work.
