CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

 

Kelly Peterson's Dance Company is a dance school with an emphasis on traditional/classic dance technique training. We believe dance teaches many valuable life lessons and we hope your child will benefit from all that dance has to offer.

 

Class Placement

 

The amount of dance training a student has had is used as a guideline, but not as a rule. Some children are born with a gift and some have to work harder to achieve it. You will have the opportunity to personally meet with Kelly Peterson to discuss class placement for your child.

All classes are taught according to the level outlined in the class descriptions below. More advanced dancers will be allowed the opportunity to move up a level, or possibly form an alternate class with other students of the same ability but not necessarily the same age. Advance placement and alternate scheduling will be at the discretion of KPDC.
