Central Texas Youth Ballet bases the division of students into levels solely on ability -- not age. The School Director places students in the level where they will benefit the most. Levels are taught according to the ability of the students in the level as opposed to a certain syllabus. We allow class observations and schedule them once a month
Registered applicants ranging in ages three to five are generally placed in the Preschool Division without further evaluation. Registered applicants ages six or older with little or no formal dance training documented on the registration form are generally placed in the Primary Division in Level 1A. New students with extensive ballet training are invited to take a placement class.
