Please read below for a description of the new Jazz levels offered for the 2016/2017 school year. Level placement is determined by the instructor. Please call the studio if you have a question regarding registration. A trial class may be needed during the first week of classes to determine proper placement.
PDT offers four classes of jazz to ensure the right level for everyone age 8 and up.
Ballet is the base for all jazz dance and without an understanding of basic ballet, it is very difficult for a young dancer to learn jazz in a way that is beneficial. Therefore, we encourage those dancers ages 7-9 who have never taken ballet to take the new Young Recreational Ballet class taught by Maura Ryan on Monday evenings from 7:00 – 8:15.
Jazz 1 is the beginner level for ages 8+ with dance experience.
Jazz 2 is the intermediate level for ages 11+ with dance experience.
Jazz 3 is the advanced level for ages 12+.
NEW! Adult/Teen Jazz for beginner/intermediate teens with some dance experience. PLEASE SEE THE ADULT/TEEN CLASS PAGE.
Classes began on September 9th, but students may enroll any time until February 15, 2017. Register online with a 20% deposit. The balance due will be based on the total tuition prorated for the number of weeks remaining in the school year. Contact the office for details.
