How many students are in a class?
The pre-ballet and children’s lessons are limited to 8 children per class. There may be more students in the intermediate and advanced courses. In the adult lessons there are usually 6-8 students per class.
Can my child start at any time during the year?
If a student has previous ballet training and wishes to join a class after the semester has begun, we do our best to place them in a class that is a good fit for the individual. This decision is at the discretion of the instructor. The pre-ballet classes, however, can be joined at almost anytime.
