Training Program - Level 3
ELIGIBILITY FOR LEVEL 3
Dancers must be evaluated or recommended by the Artistic Director for promotion or admission to the third level of the Training Program. Dancers are then further evaluated for eligibility for pointe class. Not all Level 3 dancers will be ready for pointe shoes. New students with previous experience must be evaluated by the Artistic Director before enrolling. Please email to schedule an evaluation.
COMMITMENT REQUIRED OF LEVEL 3
It is recommended that dancers enroll in four or five technique classes per week. Two technique classes per week is the bare minimum commitment required to retain a position in Level 3. Please understand that enrolling in less than four technique classes per week will result in a diminished rate of progress and improvement. Dancers will not be considered for pointe shoe eligibility unless they are enrolled in at least three technique classes per week. In addition to weekly classes, all Level 3 dancers are eligible to participate in our Nutcracker performance in December. Further, those Level 3 dancers who are enrolled in at least three weekly technique 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 3
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.
