Classes on the schedule that are marked with a T after the teacher initials are not in the recital and are technique only. Classes that are marked with an R will participate in the recital. Students in classes that are marked with a must also be enrolled in a ballet class.

Creative Movement, Beginning, Adv Beginning, Pre Jazz, Tap III and IV and Primary I, II and III classes are in one performance for the recital. All other classes are in both performances for the recital. Students who wish to go on pointe must take pre-pointe for at least one year prior to enrolling in beginning pointe.

Students may not enroll in or be in a recital dance for a class unless they have tested into the Cecchetti levels listed under the class or they have received both owner and teacher permission.


At Ann Parsley School of Dance, student placement is determined first by individual skill levels as assessed by instructors, not by age. Ages and levels that are listed on the schedule are an average of students in the class. Each student is carefully evaluated and placed in a program best suited to his or her goals and abilities that will provide safe, technically correct training, as well as a challenging, well-rounded appreciation of dance. It is very important to remember that all students are individuals and therefore, are evaluated on an individual basis. Each student has different strengths and they will not all progress at the same rate. The staff at APSD will place students in the most appropriate level to correctly and safely strengthen technique which guarantees a successful learning experience.
