PARENTS DID YOU KNOW?
 
“When will my child be ready to move up?” is a common and understandable question.  Here at CMA advancement is very much an individual issue that can vary from child to child. The four biggest factors we look at are as follows:
  1. Mastery of the skills at their current level.
  2. Behavior and enthusiasm.
  3. Consistently good attendance.
  4. Summer study
While move-ups are assessed on individual basis, some “rules of thumb” generally apply.  Often (but not always) a child from the Creative Movement One level thru Ballet One-Plus will spend at least one full school year in that level. Once a dancer reaches the Ballet Two level they can expect to remain at that level for at least two years. The amount of material a student is expected to learn from the Ballet Two thru Ballet Five levels is significant and often a third year of study at that level is required. Participation is additional classes can certainly help accelerate a dancers progress.

As always we welcome your questions about your child’s dance education. If you would like to discuss matters in detail, please call or email to schedule an appointment.
