At SESD, we realize that each dancer learns and will grow at his or her own pace. Ages listed below are a general guideline that helps us initially place dancers. When placing students, whether new or returning, we first take the following things into consideration: physical development and strength, emotional maturity, work ethic, comprehension, and ability to correctly demonstrate level-appropriate technique. Age is a secondary consideration. It is not uncommon, in fact it is expected, that students spend 2-4 years in any given level. There are only four levels of each technique (after “Foundations”), making it virtually impossible for a dancer to be promoted each passing year. New students can learn from those who have already completed one or more years of a level, which gives more experienced students a wonderful opportunity to be a positive example and leader in class! Promoting a dancer too quickly could result in physical harm, emotional distress, and persistent injuries.

We appreciate you trusting us with your child’s dance education and understanding that we have their best interest, and safety, in mind when making decisions considering class promotions.
