Next Level I Course is currently being scheduled.
**Most students repeat Level I at least twice before moving into Level II. You are welcome to move into Level II, after only Level I session, but you will have to repeat it in the future before moving up to Level III.
If you are able, your most successful option would to take repeat Level I at the same time as moving into Level II. That way, you are taking two hours of dance back to back. You are able to learn more from Level I that you didn't catch the first couple times and you can really delve deeper into the material presented.
No student will be considered for Level III until they've taken Level I twice and Level II twice. If after this minimal time a student is approved for Level III, they are required to repeat Level I for two session and Level II for two sessions simultaneously with Level III.
