Our Leveled Technique program offers individual technique classes in ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, and lyrical/contemporary/modern, hip hop and acrobatics. Leveled classes start around 8-10 years of age. Ages may vary based on the number of years the student has taken and the ability level. Students need the Director’s approval to take leveled classes. Placement in each level is based on director and teacher evaluations of each student and is subject to change at the discretion of the Director.
The leveled technique classes are designed to challenge and encourage the advanced dancer. While many students in the leveled technique classes are members of the Elite Feet Dance Company, any student with the required ability level may take our leveled technique classes. We often have students transition from our recreational pre-teen and teen programs to our Leveled Technique program once they have gained the necessary skills.
Through participation in these classes, students not only develop their dance technique but also learn discipline, responsibility, work ethic, and an appreciation for dance as an art form. These experiences help to prepare our students for all future endeavors; and these classes are particularly great preparation for any student looking to continue dancing in college or professionally.
All the Leveled Technique Program teaching staff at Elite Feet Dance Studio has a degree in Dance or professional dance experience. All teachers strive to instill in their students an understanding that they can push themselves and reach their fullest potential while still caring for their bodies, balancing their lives, and learning healthy life habits.
