    Student Evaluations

    Tremendous care and attention are devoted to the evaluation process in order to provide clear goals for our students as they develop their technique and love of dance. In addition to comments given by each student’s instructor(s), all students enrolled in the School’s vocational levels (Elementary and Intermediate/ Advanced levels) will be formally evaluated to help determine student advancements for the next school season. At the end of each school year, all students will receive a letter indicating their placement for the following school year.

    A student’s level placement is a benchmark which indicates a student’s attainment of the skills set forth in the syllabus. Placement is a complex process, and may not necessarily be based on a student’s years of study or age (with the exception of the placement of new students in the Primary Division classes). Accordingly, we rely heavily on the expertise of our faculty and School Director to observe each student’s understanding and application of class material, physical strength and development, as well as intellectual and artistic maturity observed throughout the school season. Additionally, the level of technical achievement within the general student population can and does change, affecting overall placement standards throughout the levels of the School.

    It is important to note that advancement is a unique process for each individual student. Above all, students will be placed in a level that will allow for challenging study without putting at risk the physical health and emotional well-being of the child. Unlike academic programs, it is not uncommon for students to be asked to repeat a level of training, and this practice is in no way designed to be a punishment. It is of the utmost importance that students be able to execute and master class material safely and avoid injuries caused by improper technique in order to fulfill his or her potential as a dancer, and to learn and grow as an artist.
