Dear Step By Step Families,
This season we are excited to offer an optional ballet assessment for our Junior 3, 4 & 5 and Intermediate 1, 2, 3, 4 students. These assessments will take place on Wednesday, June 8th.
The purpose of this optional assessment is to provide valuable feedback regarding your child's progress and to identify areas they can continue to improve upon. Feedback is a powerful tool that leads to greater growth and enhances skill acquisition. Additionally, it allows the dancer to experience how a classical ballet audition, master class, and professional RAD exam operates. The assessments are optional and will not affect the student's ability to progress to the next level should they choose not to participate.
The cost of the assessment is $50.00 per dancer. At the completion of the assessment, students will receive a digital report which will be emailed to the address we have on file. The report will include areas of strength and areas for growth with personalized advice on how to strengthen their technique.
To register, please go to your online account and select Ballet Assessment - June 8, 2022. The $50.00 will be applied to your card on file. Your dancer's schedule will be emailed by June 1st, 2022. Deadline to register online is May 15th, 2022.
This is an excellent opportunity for our young dancers!
