Class are 30 minutes in length and take place through the full season September - May. Kinderdancers (age 2) have an in-studio presentation at the end of the season. Primary 1 (age 3) and Primary 2 (age 4) dancers participate in the annual year-end production.
We understand the importance of individual attention so we cap our Kinder and Primary class sizes at 12 participants/class. Each class has 1 teacher and 1 or 2 senior student assistants. Since one of our goals is to teach children of this age how to participate in a studio and social setting, this class is for students only - the parents stay in the lobby and are welcome to watch the closed circuit television.
At the end of of the season, Junior 1 classes do an in-studio ballet presentation for their families. They then perform their second discipline in the annual year-end production.
We cap our Junior 1 classes at 12 for Acro/Ballet and at 14 for other disciplines. Each class has 1 teacher and 1 or 2 senior student assistants. While classes take place, only dancers and teachers are in the studios, but parents can see what is happening during class from the lobby with our closed-circuit TV system.
