Enrollment in Intermediate or Advanced classes is based on teacher or Director discretion and approval.  In rare cases, dancers will be permitted to take a class that is above their actual age but at the sole discretion of the teacher/Director. Progression in class and mastering of concepts will depend on the individual dancer’s level of commitment, number of hours devoted to dance each week and other factors. Our focus is not on strict mastering of steps but on individual dancer progression while having fun. If you have questions about our classes, please ask the Front Desk.

Level Classes (Ages 13 and older)

Level classes are for dancers 13 years and older. In some rare cases, advanced dancers under the age of 13 may be permitted to take a Level 2 class or higher , but at the sole discretion of the teacher or Director. Level classes are taught in all disciplines – Ballet, Broadway, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Jazz, Lyrical, Modern & Tap. Enrollment in Level 2/3 or higher requires that specific Director’s consent and is by evaluation.

Level 1 – Beginner – No dancer under age 13

Most basic class; geared to people with very little dance background, people with no background may still take this class.

Level 2 – Intermediate

This level is at a slightly faster pace, picking up some new moves and terminology. It is assumed that the student has mastered the basic steps, turns, etc.

Level 3 – Intermediate/Advanced (Specific Director consent required)

This level is for students who have mastered the intermediate steps and combinations but is not quite ready for advanced combinations or who needs additional repetitions to master combinations.

Levels 4,  5 & 6 – Specific Director invitation only

Level 4, 5 & 6 classes are designed for the most advanced students.  In general only pre-professional students or members of JKDC are permitted to enroll in these classes.
