The appropriate class and level for each student is entirely determined by TLDS staff. Correct placement for each dancer is individualistic and specific to that dancer’s needs and abilities.
Please remember that all students do not learn at the same rate. Students who start in the same class together will not always progress in the same way and therefore may be placed in different levels based upon the evaluation of their progress.
New students with no or little dance experience will be placed in beginner classes of the appropriate age group in the subject of their choice.
New students with prior dance instruction may have to try a few different classes and levels to find the appropriate fit at TLDS.
Returning students are generally kept with their group for the new dance season. However, each student is evaluated at the end of each year and may therefore be placed in a different level in accordance with their progress.
