Three levels and Weekend 5 O'Clock Class
The 5 O’Clock Class is open to talented young dancers aged 11 and up, as well as to those who have discovered dance later on, up to the age of 21. There are three levels in the programme and the students go up to the next level depending on their age and standard.
- Weekend 5 O'Clock Class | Pre Teen (10-15 year) | Pre Peer (16+)
- Junior Performance Programme (JPP) | usually 11-13
- Teen Performance Programme (TPP) | usually 14-16
- Peer Performance Programme (PPP) | usually 17-21
The 5 O’Clock Class is set up in a way that encompasses the different links in the chain of talent development. The course operates according to the phases introduction (in collaboration with partners outside the school), development (JPP, TPP) and proficiency (TPP, PPP). In the latter two phases, the dancers are prepared for the excellence phase, which takes shape in the subsequent professional dance training.
