Student Placement

All dance forms are broken down into tiered levels. It is up to the discretion of the teacher to determine where a student belongs. Teachers have the right to make changes and adjustment to a students schedule as deemed necessary. Janine Elizabeth’s Academy of Dance offers a variety of disciplines including ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, lyrical, hip hop, contemporary, modern dance, Pre-Dance, and more! Pre-Dance is a combination class consisting of an introduction to ballet, stretching techniques, tap, and personality dancing. Tiered levels for each dance form are as follows:

Level Age
Pre-Dance 3-5
Level-1 6-8
Level-2 8-10
Level-3 10-12
C-Class 12-14
B-Class 14-16
A-Class 16-Advanced/Pre-professional

Note* – Generally, a student who falls in the age range between levels can be placed in either level depending on experience and skill. For example, an 8 year old beginner who wants to register for Ballet should register for Ballet I whereas a more experienced 8 year old may be ready for Ballet II. Ultimately, it is up to the discretion of the teacher to decide where the student belongs and necessary changes may be made to ensure that the student is placed in the proper class.
