Classes Overview

G. Scotten Talent Center employs a graduated curriculum that features training levels within a series of performance divisions.  As students grow in age and ability, so does their dance training.  Current students will be assigned class placements annually.  New students with prior dance experience should attend a placement audition class to receive their recommended class assignments.  Students may enroll in one class or a few classes within their division at the regular class rate. Students enrolled in a leveled “package” of classes receive a generous discount.  The training divisions and levels offered at the studio are listed below. Students who may choose to pursue a ballet-only regimen can be provided a separately tailored program of instruction.
