Which level is right for you?

Our mission

We have developed a nurturing system of courses, in which your child will grow and build confidence. Each level has requirements for admission, and graduation to the next level. Dancers moving into classes from other studios will be automatically placed in their age level for their first class.

Our levels are organized primarily by age group for the first few years of training. As dancers acquire and master skills, age is only part of the equation! Attitude, dedication, coachability, work ethic, potential, attendance and natural ability factor in more and more each year.
