Levels 3, 4, & 5

Our Level 3, Level 4, and Level 5 classes are for students approximately 9-15 years of age. Placement in these classes is based not only on age, but also on ability and years of experience.  Class length ranges from 1 to 1 ½ hours.  Some of these classes combine both tap and ballet, while other classes strictly focus on ballet. Students in these levels are encouraged to take multiple classes per week to improve their skills.

Pointe work typically begins around Level 5.  In order to go “on pointe”, a certain level of technique and strength is required.  Students ready to go on pointe will be notified by either Ms. Natalie or Ms. Lisa.
