Dance Classes for 8, 9, 10 & 11 Year Olds
- At the start of a session, this level is typically recommended for 8, 9 and 10 year old students. If it is later in a session, if a student is still working on the mastery phase of this level, and/or if students prefer to be with students who are a bit younger, 11 year old students are welcome!
- Students who are 11 at the start of the session along with 9 & 10 year old students who have prior dance experience can be considered for our IGNITE level as well, and we can help you navigate that when you call 636-978-3321 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
