* ABOUT CLASS LEVELS: Starting 2023-2024, we are moving toward a standardized approach to class levels. In order to qualify for a class level or advance to a new class level, students will need to take and pass an audition with specific requirements. 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.

Parents are required to stay during their child’s class time in levels 1-3. We provide space for parents to sit and assist their students, as well as space for siblings to sit and do school work, etc.
