Find the right level for you

The levels applied to our classes give you an indication of how much prior experience you’ll need to have the right amount of challenge and comfort.

It is just an indication though, because individuals vary in how comfortable they are being challenged and how quickly they pick up new movement.

Need more guidance?

If you are not sure which level suits you, or if you should go higher or lower than what is recommended based on how much dance experience you have, please get in touch with Anne, our Client Relationship Officer on info@mtl-dancstudio.com.au or call her on 0408 240 772.
