CLASS AGES
Please reference the class ages when determining suitability for your child. When multiple classes are available for your child’s age group, we recommend taking their prior experience, interest, and age relative to other students into consideration. Many BAX classes overlap by ages, e.g. Ages 5-6 years, Ages 6-8 years, Ages 7-9 years, and so on. A family should consider previous class/discipline experience(s), age, and maturity of a child when selecting the best class. For example, if a 6-year-old child has never taken dance before and/or might benefit from being the oldest in the class and feeling more confident (like a leader), they should go to the Ages 5-6 years class instead of the Ages 6-8 years, where they’ll be the youngest. If, however, a child benefits from being mentored by peers, feeling challenged, and being around more mature students, they should opt for the older class.

Some BAX classes require prerequisite experience. To confirm whether or not your child has the correct prerequisites, please reach out to the Education Department.

Dance Performance Workshop (DPW) and AcroBAX are by invitation only and require prior experience, specifically proficient technical,
collaborative, improvisational and performance skills. These classes are a one year commitment. Prerequisite classes require that students have equivalent technical skills; new students must confirm eligibility. Please call for more information.

Please contact the Education Department for additional guidance about how to navigate class ages and prerequisites.
