NOTE on Ballet Placement:
  • Our class levels begin with Level Six - the youngest students and end with Level One - the most experienced students. 
  • Placement for the three beginning levels (Levels Four, Five, Six) is primarily based on age but may also consider previous instruction and ability.
  • Placement for new students with multiple years of instruction from another program will be determined after participation in one of the upper level classes.
  • If you have any questions about class placement contact Brantly Shapiro via email at shapirbb@wfu.edu
