Before registering, please read our Guide To Classes By Age Range
*Please note, age rage for classes are just a starting point to determining the right class for your dancer. Our teachers make class placement decisions freely and often move students based on their skill and maturity level. The age guidelines we use are based on the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum age and level guidelines. We use these same age guidelines for all of our classes to streamline class titles and make it easy to determine which classes may fit your child the best. Please notice some classes may have prerequisites.
*Classes listed A are the more beginning portion of a class level. B is the more advanced portion of a class level. Example: Primary A and Primary B
