Description of Levels

 

Beginner (BEG): Perfect for those with very little or no experience in the workshop being taught. Classes are typically slow paced and with more emphasis in breaking the basic moves down.
Improver (IMP): Perfect for those that have had a fair amount of experience in the workshop being taught but still find the intermediate classes too challenging. These are often dancers who are almost at the intermediate level. Classes are typically faster paced than beginner classes.
Intermediate (INT): Perfect for those that have had a great amount of experience in the workshop being taught. Classes are typically medium-quick paced with some emphasis in technique and more complicated movements.
Advanced (ADV): Perfect for those who have a large amount of experience in the workshop being taught and are looking to refine or perhaps add flare to their performance. Classes are typically fast paced with emphasis in technique with the addition of more difficult movements.
Open (OPEN): Workshops that are defined as "Open Level" are usually paced to match the level of the majority of the students taking the class. Typically, instructors still keep in mind the levels of the rest of the students.
Please note our schedule is subject to change – please check the large poster boards by the registration area.  All classes are 50-minutes unless otherwise noted.
