Training Program - Level 1
ELIGIBILITY FOR LEVEL 1
Dancers must be at least six years old and have finished at least one complete year in our Preparatory Ballet class. Dancers must also have permission of the Artistic Director confirming they have successfully mastered the concepts presented in Preparatory Ballet. New students with previous experience must be evaluated by the Artistic Director before enrolling. Please email to schedule an evaluation.
COMMITMENT REQUIRED OF LEVEL 1
It is strongly recommended that dancers enroll in two classes per week to maintain a normal rate of progress, however you have the flexibility to enroll in only one class per week. If an accelerated rate of progress is desired, enrollment in three weekly classes is strongly recommended. In addition to weekly classes, all Level 1 dancers are eligible to participate in our Nutcracker performance in December. Further, those Level 1 dancers who are enrolled in at least two weekly classes are also eligible to participate in our Spring Concert in May. Performances are optional and require an additional time commitment and fee. Class time is never used to rehearse for performances.
ENROLLING IN LEVEL 1
Enrollment is completed through an on-line application process and indicates a commitment for the entire school year. Parents will be required to select the specific classes their child will be attending as well as indicate whether or not they will choose to perform in the Nutcracker and the Spring Concert. There is a non-refundable enrollment reservation fee due at the time of application. Enrollment is limited. Please email for enrollment consideration and further information.
