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 with their other class/es. R.A.D. Ballet classes Grades 1 and up usually attend their grade twice per week but some changes have been made for 20/21 due to Covid-19 restrictions. In addition to the companies, some classes must take an additional class per week as indicated.
Please note that the schedule, classes and instructors are subject to change.
In September of 2013, my little 3 year old dancer walked into the DU Studio for her first Broadway Babies class and has never looked back. Each year taking on more classes, challenges and most importantly feeling like she is at home. DU is not only a dance studio, it is where families come together and our children gain lifelong skills and friendships. The teachers passion for the arts shows in every move they make and they truly do love all the kids like their very own. Going into our 7th season we look forward to continuing the growth and love of dance that DU provides. If you are looking for a Dance Studio to call home, look no further, Dance Unlimited is where your dancer will walk in and instantly feel like this is where they belong.
