Dance Collective welcomes students of all ages and abilities. Below is information for our new dancer.
Ages 3 and 4 should register in our Royal Academy of Dance certified preschool ballet program. Designed with the young dancer in mind, these classes are taught by an accredited ballet teacher.
Ages 4 to 5 can sign up for one of our lively pre-jazz classes as well as ballet. The 5 year old ballet dancer should enroll in pre-primary ballet class.
Ages 6 and up can register for primary ballet classes, jazz level 1, mini tap and hip hop combination or junior level musical theatre.
The minimum age is 8 for acro level 1 unless placement has been suggested by the teacher.
For those who are interested in pursuing the RAD examination syllabus you must take a minimum of 2 ballet classes a week. Once you reach Grade 1 level ballet you should register for a Grade 1 class and a Grade 1 Studies class. Students must be at least 7 years old to register for Grade 1 ballet. Contemporary and lyrical jazz classes require some dance background so the novice dancer must wait until they’ve gained experience.
If you are new to dance or have had some training in the disciplines we offer, call or email the studio. We will happily help you select classes. To place you in the class that is best for you an assessment at the studio may be required.
