At Dance Fusion Studios, we strive to place our students in an optimal learning environment. Factors considered when placing children include ability, focus, drive and maturity. If you are a parent who is registering your child for the first time, we encourage you to inquire with our staff as to which class level to register for. Our teachers will evaluate them, and should they feel your child is better suited in another class, they will advise you.
