HOW DO I DETERMINE MY CHILD'S LEVEL?

Each level at HDA is designed to review movement from the prior level and then to begin to slowly introduce new material. The introduction of new “steps” is gradual and progressive. Building a strong foundation and strong technique can only be done through much repetition. For this reason, when introducing a new student into our studio, we recommend starting a lower level than you may believe your child is at. We maintain that by starting at a lower level we can easily see if a student has mastered the skills at that level and we can proudly announce that they need to level up! Adversely, when we have to let a child know they've been placed in a level that is beyond their skill set at the time, we fear that acknowledgment and "demotion" can cause unnecessary emotional distress. Our job as dance educators is to set our students up for success in their own time. Each dancer has a unique dance journey that shouldn't be rushed! Please note: Only LEVEL ONE in each age category (DREAM/ DEVELOP/DEFINE is to enroll online without consultation. All students will be evaluated and moved into a higher level if determined appropriate by our dance educators in their first few classes.

HOW MANY CLASSES WOULD YOU RECOMMEND EACH DANCER TAKE?

This comes down to the question...what are your dancer's goals? Do they aspire to become part of our competitive teams and join Performers Academy? Do they simply love to dance and want to enjoy the challenge, the socialization, and the personal growth of dance class? Do they wish to pursue professional dance opportunities in the future? How much time does your dancer and family have to commit to dance classes? All this can help you determine what is right for your dancer and your family. 

At HDA, we recommend that each dancer take a minimum of 2 classes in order to have the instruction and practice time needed to understand the basic concepts of dance. In order to really expand on those basic concepts and to be able to put them into action with more consistency, those wanting to excel in dance should think about committing to 3-5 classes per week including ballet & jazz. Our competitive dancers take approximately 6-10 classes per week.

HOW CAN MY DANCER MOVE UP A LEVEL?

 In many ways, the way children learn dance is a lot like the way they learn math: Understanding basic addition and subtraction comes first, and after that it’s possible to move on to concepts like multiplication and division.  Understanding each basic component then makes it possible to study more complex ideas, like algebra or geometry. Dance knowledge progresses like this too; students can’t skip ahead to more advanced material without first mastering the fundamentals.

Unlike what you are used to in school, it’s typical for student to be in the same level for more than one year...dance studios like ours usually do not have thirteen grades like school! And it is expected that students will require more than one year to truly master specific skills and be prepared for what’s next.

At HDA, we have a clear curriculum and progression that each student is evaluated by twice a year on what we call "Artist Development Weeks." The first is to check our students at the halfway mark of the season, and the 2nd time to determine class placement for the next season. Your best plan of action to level up your class is to focus on the fundamentals taught in your current class and work to MASTER them! If you want further advice and mentoring, simply ask your teacher, we are here to instruct our students on the journey upward and ensure they never miss a step along the way!
