All Is Dance Academy
Level 2: Intermediate This level would be for children who are interested in continuing dance and learning new skills at a slightly higher level than the beginner level. The curriculum for these classes would be learning new dance moves, memorizing choreography and following detailed directions. The suggested ages for this level is 7-10.
Level 3: Advanced This level is for children who have preferably had some dance experience in the past but are also fast learners. This level includes a faster moving curriculum and involves movement taught from past levels. This level expects dancers to have some dance knowledge, be open minded to trying new things, have music coordination and to be able to memorize choreography. The age suggestion for this level is 11 and up or 10 year olds with experience.
