Dancers under the age of 13 will be placed in Primary, Level 1 or Level 2, based on their age as of January 1st of the closest School Year Session. Dancers age thirteen and older have two options: The Teen Track and the Pre-Professional Track. The Pre-Professional Track (LV 3 and 4) is designed for the serious dancer who wishes to commit to a more rigorous schedule, challenging class environment, pointe work and partnering skills.  Dancers who do not wish to make this commitment have the opportunity to take classes through Teen Track and will continue studying ballet with a less demanding schedule and workload. We are looking forward to a great year full of learning and dancing!
