Everything you need to know is here!
You may have heard that it’s “leveling time” at DAU, and perhaps wondered what – exactly – do we mean by that? For the next 3 weeks, our teachers and directors work together to look at each student individually to determine the best placement for his/her class(es) for the 2017-18 dance season. This is a very important process…and it is one of the very best things about our studio!
We, at DAU, are committed to ensuring that each and every student receives the very best dance education, and the leveling process is one of the ways that we can help our students to find success in dance. This is not a test; it is not an assessment; students cannot “pass” or “fail.”
The leveling process is a way of guiding our students on a SUCCESSFUL journey in dance education. There is no “right” or “wrong” level – there is only the “right level” for a particular dancer. The “right level” is one in which some things are easy and some things are hard. If everything is easy the student is bored, but if everything is hard the student is frustrated. SUCCESS comes from determining the level where students are challenged, but not frustrated. It is a fine line, indeed, but that is why we are committed to find the “right level” for each student!
When our Fall Schedule is released in mid-April, each dancer will receive a personalized leveling sheet for next year’s classes. This individual leveling will enable parents to register their children for classes that will be challenging, while still nurturing their love and passion for dance!
