Class placement is based on age, technique, progress and strength. It is most important that each student be placed in the appropriate level and class where he or she will be challenged, but not overwhelmed, and will be able to execute new dance movements without injury or instilling bad habits. Because it usually takes 2 to 3 years before the necessary skills are attained, and because there are only a few levels per age group, it is normal for a student to spend 2 to 3 years in each level. Sometimes it is necessary for a student to be moved into a different class, level, or more suitable genre, after registration has taken place. This will be done as soon as possible at the beginning of the year and will be discussed with the parent first. It is very important that each dancer is comfortable in their class/es so please don’t hesitate to call with any questions or concerns regarding placement.
Ballet is the foundation of all dance. It helps students further their strength, technique and helps them understand proper posture and placement. We strongly suggest that students take a Ballet class in conjunction with their other class/es. Some classes must take a Ballet class in conjunction (indicated as italics (B)) with their other class/es. R.A.D. Ballet classes Grades 1 and up attend their grade twice per week.
In addition to the companies, some classes must take an additional class per week (indicated as (2)).

Dance Unlimited has taught me a lot. I’ve danced for nine years and each day is a new experience. Dancing makes me happy and when I come here, I forget about about anything that happened that day and just relax. The teachers are encouraging and make me feel comfortable. Dancing here makes learning actually fun! I am glad to dance here!
