These days it is so important that dancers be as well rounded in the performing arts as possible. The expectations in dance for those who have an inkling to pursue the art seriously has risen far above what they have been in the past. New styles of dance have emerged and dancers are expected to be able to adapt to new styles.
For those students who are interested in pursuing ballet examinations in Levels 1 and up, they must be registered in a minimum of 2 classes of the same level and discipline per week, with a strong recommendation of 3 classes per week. The recommendation of 2 ballet classes per week is also for those students who aspire to dance on pointe in the future.
All dance forms benefit each other and we strongly encourage dancers to register for as many classes as possible in each discipline to provide the most well rounded training as possible. Students may add additional classes to their schedule up until October 1st, 2011.
