This program was developed to meet the needs of the serious student who may possibly choose a career in the field of dance or pursue a college dance degree. Students must be recommended or audition for this program. Students who desire only 2 or 3 classes a week should take classes in our excellent open program. Students in any Advanced Class must abide by an additional set of policies. A parent and dancer are to schedule a meeting with the director if this will be your first year in any Advanced class (with the exception of Advanced Tap) to review these policies. Advanced Pointe students who wish to perform with the Advanced Ballet program must take a minimum of 4 Advanced Ballet classes. The required classes are listed below. All Advanced Ballet students and LBT or LBT2 members are required to take a minimum of 3 weeks of our 5-week BC Summer Workshop. Students who take an Advanced Level Modern or Jazz class are required to take a ballet class during the year and a minimum of 3 weeks of Summer Workshop to remain in that level in the Fall. Email Mrs. Lannin to work out conflicts in your schedule, or if you would like to add additional classes. New students to the Advanced Level should email Mrs. Lannin to schedule a conference to review the Advanced Level Policy. Advanced adults may enroll in Advanced Level classes with permission of an instructor. Please dress neatly if you attend Advanced Classes as students have a dress code.
