You also have the choice with Dance lessons of weekday or Saturday mornings. Notify Reception of illness, make-up classes are available within the same term.
Intermediate Studio Program
Excitements, friendships and learning are the three ingredients in our Intermediate Program. At this stage students are now ready to focus on particular genres. The Studio’s Intermediate School commences with students from School Grade 4 through to High School. Students studying Ballet at this stage are now required to attend two lessons per week to increase their muscle memory in order to have them strong enough for Pointe Work at age 12-13. Pointe is added for Ballet students who have reached the IADMS benchmarks in Gold Medal Ballet.
Senior Studio Program
Commitment, vision and lifelong friendships make up our Senior Program. Most students have completed all of their Intermediate Program exams and are now choosing whether to partake in the Senior Program Exams. The Studio’s Senior Studio is based on levels only. New students will need to be assessed by our Senior teachers before they can join these classes. Students from Elementary Ballet or Jazz or Level 10 Hip Hop and above through to Advanced are classed as Senior students. These levels are the base requirement to apply for ATOD teachers examinations. Senior students are able to consider involvement in The Studio Senior Mentoring program to assist with scholarship applications, auditions after high school and focusing on individual outcomes.
