About Our Dance Class Levels

Here at McCann’s we have a unique way of labeling our class levels. Since we have varying numbers of levels for our different style classes, our most advanced dancers are level 1. The higher the level number, the more beginner the class is. Below is our general outline for ballet placement which can also be applied to our other styles. For styles such as modern and hip hop that have fewer levels, our beginners are level 4. Since there are fewer levels of these styles, students may stay in the same class for 2 or more years. If you have any questions about placement, please email us at office@mccannschoolofdance.com.

Please note: Our teachers may request that a student be moved to a more appropriate level during the first few weeks of classes.


Level 1 Ballet: Dancers that have several years of experience and have instructor approval may register for level 1 ballet.

Level 2 Ballet: Dancers that have several years of experience and have instructor approval may register for level 2 ballet.

Level 3 Ballet: Dancers that have taken dance for 4 or more years and/or have shown proficiency in level 4 ballet may register for level 3 ballet.

Level 4 Ballet: Dancers that have 3 years experience and/or have shown proficiency in level 5 may register for level 4 ballet.

Level 5 Ballet: Dancers that have 2 years experience in ballet or have taken both ballet as well as combo or creative movement may register for level 5 ballet.

Level 6 Ballet: Dancers that have taken 1 year of ballet may register for level 6 ballet.

Level 7 Ballet: Dancers that have never taken ballet class or have previously taken Combo class should register for level 7 ballet.
