The Senior level is for dancers approximately 15 years of age and above with about 12 years or more of dance/movement experience* who have a solid knowledge of the basics, have built upon them and are ready to continue their study of advanced technique and choreography sequences. Each student (regardless of age, intelligence, etc.) progresses at her/his own rate and even over the various disciplines offered may individually progress at different rates. Our knowledgeable and experienced instructors do our best at placing each child where we feel she/he will thrive. Many factors are taken into account and we are constantly observing and making sure each student is where she/he belongs. It is always best to start each season where recommended by the instructors or if in doubt, starting in a lower level and moving up within the first few weeks/months if the instructor feels this is best.
Pointe (Skill Set Required)
Acrobatics I or II
*Students who are new to dance may still possibly be placed in a Jr, Int or Sr level class but may be required to take either additional classes of the same style (at no additional cost) and/or private lessons to help catch up on missed material.
