Intermediate & Intermediate II Programs
Generally Ages 10-12
About the Programs:
A variety of styles are offered to our intermediate students giving them the training options to become strong, artistic & versatile dancers! Students have the option to take any number of classes and are encouraged to take ballet in addition to their style of choice to develop technique, proper posture, body placement and musicality!
Intermediate Students and teens who are in between the Intermediate and Advanced levels will be invited by the director to take certain Advanced Classes along with certain Intermediate Classes. Current students will be emailed by the office with suggested classes and new students will be assessed upon registration. Some students may be notified throughout the year based on their progress.
