Levels and Placement

At MSOD, our classes have various levels depending upon the style of dance. In general, the higher the number, the more beginner the class is. Our most advanced classes are always level 1 while our most beginner classes range from levels 4-7. Listed below is a brief description of our ballet levels as an example. For a more detailed description of our levels, please visit the page for the style you wish to train in found on the dropdown menu under “Classes.”

Please note:
Our teachers may request that a student be moved to a more appropriate level during the first few weeks of classes.
Dancers typically remain in the same level class for 2 or more years depending on their abilities and age.

For questions regarding level placement, please email our dance director, Samantha, at samantha@mccannschoolofdance.com.
