Level Guide

The levels are a guide only and we find that the abilities in the groups are always quite mixed. Our teachers are fantastic at making the classes accessible and exciting for a mixed ability group.

Beginner (For those with no dance experience or for those who dance on a casual basis (e.g – school clubs, youth clubs etc)
Intermediate (For those who dance regularly (approx. 1-3 times a week, grade 2-4)
Advanced (For those who dance several times a week at a higher level, (e.g, grade 5 and above, competitions, festivals, etc.)
Groups may be split or combined depending on ticket sales.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS & TIPS

Do I buy tickets for Beginner, Intermediate or Advanced?

The levels and references to grades are a guide and the groups will still be mixed. The teachers make sure that the stronger dancers in each group are stretched but will also break down choreography / technique for less experienced dancers in the group. More information above.
