At the Intermediate level, young dancers train in ballet and contemporary aesthetics with a heightened focus on alignment, musicality, and terminology. These classes prepare students for entrance into the Performing Arts Division. Students must have reached age 7 by the first day of class. Class placement should not be adjusted between 2016-17 sessions unless prior approval is received from MDT&S. Progress through a curriculum is most successful for the student, the class, and the instructor when there is continuity in the learning environment. MDT has a minimum enrollment policy of 5 students per class. If minimum enrollment is not met by the end of the third week of classes, MDT may cancel the class and provide alternative options to students. For questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
