Class Placement

Students enrolling into the Primary Ballet program will be placed according to age. Children can continue in the Primary Ballet program until the age of 8 and may choose to enroll in the Beginner Ballet program starting at age 8.

With the exception of the Primary Ballet program designed for children ages 3 – 8, Northern Lights School of Dance does not advance students based on chronological age but rather on skill level. This ensures that new students of any age can start the program and that those qualified will advance, allowing recreational dancers to continue to work at their own skill level.

Parents should not anticipate annual level advancement as dance classes do not progress at the same pace as traditional academic grades. It is not uncommon for students to remain in a level of study for two or more years.

Some classes have pre-requisites. Please see class descriptions for details.
