The Academy of Nevada Ballet Theatre’s Policy on Student Advancement
Each student is an individual who will progress at his or her own pace through the ballet levels and syllabus. It is important for parents and students to understand that, unlike academic schools, remaining in the same level from one year to the next is not an indication of failure but rather an aid in attaining the ultimate goal of progressing and mastering the technical standard of the different stages of the syllabus. Students are carefully evaluated. The Academy reserves the right to place any student in any level throughout the year. It is a disservice and potentially dangerous to expect a student to perform exercises for which they are not muscularly strong enough or adequately prepared. At the same time students with exceptional awareness of the fundamentals and technical strength, will have the privilege to progress at his or her optimal pace.
