Dancers grow and move through the levels gaining a strong technical foundation, allowing students to become accomplished both in ballet and other dance genres, and to develop a love for dance in an enjoyable and nurturing environment. Levels correspond with the RAD program and we encourage dancers to take both open and exam ballet. Classes with (Tech.) means it is tech only with no performance involved.
