Class Placement

Registration for all classes for students ages 8 and up is determined by BSD instructors and not by age. This ensures that all students are registered for the appropriate level due to ability and maturity.


New students to BSD should check with Pam Brushwood for space availability in classes.


Pointe (Ballet V) is for students at least 12 years old who have acquired an acceptable level of strength, flexibility, and endurance. Placement in this class is by assessment and at the teacher’s discretion. To be on pointe, a student must take two additional ballet techniques classes at Level IV. (Thurs Ballet III/IV class will be virtual only for pointe students.) 


All classes for ages 8 and up require students to take class both semesters in order to participate in recital. 


Class placements are mailed out mid-June.
