Class Placement

Students are initially placed in Discover Dance and Discover Ballet classes by age. All students enrolling for the first time in one of these classes must be the required age on or before August 15, 2016. Initial class placement for older students will be made by Ballet Memphis School staff based on both age and previous experience. No exceptions will be made on initial class placement. Each student is then continually evaluated throughout the year and moved to another class when deemed appropriate by the instructor or school principal. Generally, students stay at each level for at least two semesters. However, each student’s progress is evaluated on an individual basis.

Prospective new students, ages 8-17, with previous classical ballet training, should sign up for a Student Placement/Evaluation here.

New students with no previous classical ballet training can be placed without an evaluation. Please contact Janet Parke, School Director, by phone (901.737.7322) or email to confirm your level before registering.
