Junior Classes

FOR STUDENTS BORN IN 2008, 2009 2010 or 2011

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 2021 classes commence.

 

For students interested in the nationally-recognised Certificate I in Dance (CUA10113), we offer this courses in partnership with EmpowerDance (RTO43097) and in conjunction regular classes and syllabus work meaning students don't have to take extra time out of school to gain this qualification. NB. Students must be 12 years old to commence the CUA10113 course.
