Dear Dance Families,
Happy summer to all! We hope you have had some time to enjoy family, travel, relaxation or just another schedule of sorts -- if that is what you were able to do. It is hard to believe that our fall classes for 2018-19 will be up and running in just a few short weeks. We wanted to make sure you had access to the schedule via email as well as our website and your Parent Portal.
At this time you may register for classes you are interested in taking to secure a place and so that the classes do not fill up. However this year we will continue with our Placement Testing for all of our students above the Combo II level. For each Genre of dance, we will evaluate the students’ level of technique to make sure that they are placed in the correct level for training. In the past, students have joined a class that did not allow them to be trained at their optimum capabilities. We follow a curriculum with specific benchmarks and it is important that your dancer is gaining the skill and strength prior to moving up in levels to avoid injury and to sustain proper technique. At TDW we want to ensure that each student is given the best opportunity to do so. This process will ensure that your dancer is placed in the absolute best starting point at the beginning of the season.
Our Placement Testing will take place on Saturday, August 11th and Sunday, August 12th. Testing is done by Genre. Please plan NOW to attend the testing for the genres you will be taking in the fall. Combo students do NOT need to take the PT. ALL students are required to TEST before they begin classes.
