Class placement is solely the decision of the Academy Directors and faculty. Class levels are determined by age, previous experience, and ability. Every effort is made to place each student in the appropriate level.
A student must demonstrate consistent mastery of all technical and artistic aspects of his/her present class level in order to advance to the next level. Some students will need to remain for more than two year in certain levels.
It is our goal to assist students in attaining the highest levels of mastery and achievement through our dance curriculum. Because students progress at different rates, it is likely that some within a class level may be promoted to a higher level during the school year. In the rare instance that a student is promoted to a higher level during the school year, he/she will pay any additional tuition costs of the higher level on a pro-rated basis.
