Are children always placed in classes according to their age? We initially place children in classes according to their age. However, if we feel that the student needs to be in another level, we will place the child accordingly.
Do children in the Early Childhood Program take part in a performance at the end of the year? Yes. All students at the Busby Dancenter are encouraged to take part in our Spring performance at the end of the year. We have two performance lasting about two hours and all the dancers are in both performances.
What happens after the Early Childhood Program is complete? At age eight, children move into Ballet 1 where are they are introduced to the formal classical ballet technique, with a graded syllabus. Students may also enroll in tap and jazz classes at this age.
