Placement usually by age and ability as decided by the teacher.
Placing a child in the correct class is of the utmost importance at IDA. We offer every level for every age-group and we encourage new students to try different classes until we find the perfect match. Every dancer receives individual attention and is under the care of the Directors and qualified teachers at all times.
Class descriptions are available upon request. As children are not placed solely by age group, we prefer discussing possibilities with the parents personally after we have observed the dancer in class.
A complimentary trial ballet class is offered for all levels.
