Assessments of Dancers abilities are the primary criteria for creating classes in addition to previous Dance experience and age/grade of Student. By organizing students in such a way classes will allow for the introduction of a curriculum that challenges each student at his/her level of Dance ability. It also allows Dancers to reach their full and recognizable potential. Instruction shall establish standards that will allow easy transition to other Dance Communities.
All students both New and Returning are advised to attend Placement Assessments in August. This allows us to compare abilities and levels of students after the summer break, while taking into account the progress of those who have participated in Summer Programs. At the Assessment our Panel of Dance Teachers will determine the level of each student. Dancers who choose not to attend Placement Assessment will be placed in the beginner level.
