RISE uses a system of levels to match student’s ability within each class and subject. Students are placed based on age and years of experience as well as on skill level, coordination, flexibility, musicality, concentration, maturity in applying corrections and body awareness. Each class is paced to meet the needs of the majority with individual attention placed where needed. It is important for students and parents to understand that dance class levels are not the same as grade levels in school, and that dance students may not always change levels each year. This does not mean that students have not made progress or that they are being ‘held back.’ Students consistently dancing beyond the class level will be moved accordingly based on their teacher’s evaluation.
