  • ABOUT CLASS LEVELS: To qualify for class 2 (if class 1 isn’t completed), or to advance to class 3 or class 4, students will need to take and pass an informal audition with specific requirements (on Friday, August 9). We will send those requirements out to students after registration (or before, by request), and we’ll set up a time with parents and students when auditions will take place. If you are registering your child in the same level as last year, audition is not required. Please register your child for the class you think will best fit their abilities. Some adjustments may need to be made to class levels after registration & auditions.
