Yes! Our Ballet classes participate in both of our bi-annual Showcases, Winter Showcase and Summer Showcase. 

More information about our Showcases are sent through our newsletter emails, our website blog, posted on our social media accounts, and also shown in our in-studio slideshow.

My child has Ballet experience, can they take a level II or higher?

As our Level II and III/IV Ballet classes require a slightly elevated skill level from our performers, they are required to have instructor approval to enroll in the class. For new incoming students, performers who have taken Ballet at other studios or schools may be ready for a higher level.

If your child has completed at least one year of outside training in this discipline, please email the studio at stagelightarts@gmail.com to schedule this assessment with one of our qualified instructors.

How do I know if my child can move up to the next level?

A feature in your Customer Portal–Evaluations! These stars represent the progress your child has made in each of their classes. In the future, you’ll be able to track your child’s skill progression throughout the year, but for the first phase of this rollout, Evaluations are here to help you determine which classes your child is approved to enroll in next season.

Can my child enroll in a class that is intended for an age group slightly older than theirs?

We typically allow for a standard six-month grace period surrounding the specified age limits. It is advisable to initially enroll her in a class appropriate for her current age group, especially for the first half of the season.

If the grace period exceeds six months beyond the age limits, or if the instructor advises considering a different age group, instructor approval may be required.

There are so many classes my child wants to try, can we do a trial for as many classes as we want?

We only offer a one-time free trial per student. However, we offer drop-in passes that you can purchase through the Customer Portal to try out as many classes as you’d like.

If you’re interested in purchasing a drop-in pass, you can purchase it through your Customer Portal account under “Merch & More!” (drop-in passes are only available during our open enrollment periods).
