Junior Classes

FOR STUDENTS BORN IN 2007, 2008, 2009 OR 2010

GUIDE TO TECHNIQUE CLASS GRADINGS FOR JUNIOR STUDENTS

For all other classes (hip hop, acrobatics, contemporary, jazz, street tap, singing, musical theatre and speech & drama) students are categorised as Junior.

Please note class placement for technique classes (Ballet, Jazz Technique and ISTD Tap) may be based on a student's experience rather than age. Class placement is highly individual and there a number of factors that contribute to this process. The age-based guidelines are provided as a starting point and you may find your child's placement is revised once 2020 classes commence.
