This level meets weekly for 1 hour. This class is designed for 7-9 years of age who have had a year of training and are ready to focus on a broader use of terminology and sharpen their technical skills. Older, beginning students use this class as the starting point for their dance education. The use of turn-out is stressed more at this level than previous levels and students are expected to execute lengthier combinations. Tap steps are more complex and the speed at which they are performed are faster.
