NewtoDance Posted October 17, 2010 Report Share Posted October 17, 2010 Hello, I have a 7-year old son who just started ballet in September. I know nothing about ballet. He is taking two classes a week. One class on a Tuesday with only one other student, a girl who has been taking ballet for a couple of years. The other class on a Saturday has about 12 students including my son and another boy. We enrolled him for this purpose, feeling that he would be more happy with another boy in the class. The fact that there are so few boys doesn't bother him at all, but his teacher asked me this Saturday if I would consider moving him to a new class she is going to have. She has selected 4 students that she wants to work more closely on technique with. She wants to prepare these students for their Level 1 and 2 exams. I agreed, knowing that my son is very keen and basically dances around all week in the house and practises every night at home. Can anyone tell me what is expected as knowledge for a Level 1 and Level 2 exam and how long you need to practise before you take these exams? Any knowledge would be most helpful.
