*For pre-pointe and pointe enrollment, 3+ years of ballet experience is required, and students may be switched into either class based on ability, ankle strength, and other considerations. It is strongly encouraged that pointe and pre-pointe dancers also enroll in their age group’s ballet class during the week to ensure they are getting proper ballet technique while developing pointe skills.

**Should you choose to sign up for both Contemporary/Ballet Combo (Thursday 4:15) and Tap/Jazz Combo (Thursday 5:30) please note that the dancers will be supervised during the 15-minute break to allow for change of teachers.

Additional Notes Regarding the Class Schedule

• Enrollment is a first come, first served basis.
