Its important for students to be placed in the appropriate age/level class for them to be successful. The grade/age levels listed for each class are a general guideline, however, students may be moved to a higher or lower level at the Instructors discretion. Most classes require the youngest students in the age range to have completed the previous level.

SIBLINGS

We have many families with dancing siblings, so we know the unique joys and challenges multiple children can be on your schedule (and wallet)! Forthis reason, we offer very generous discounts on tuition for siblings. With our expanded facility we are able to offer siblings classes on the same day back-to-back or even simultaneously! Like many studios, we perform multiple recitals, and the task of arranging siblings together in the same show can be quite difficult! For this reason we have designated which class is in each showtime on our class schedule at the beginning of the year. So you will know upfront which classes to choose so that your children are in the same show!
