Dance Xplosion® offers Youth Classes for dancers 2-18 years old and Adult Classes for dancers 18+ years old (post High School).

How Do Class Levels Work at DXP?

Dancers must be the class' minimum age by the 1st day of the applicable Summer Session OR September 1st during the Fall-Spring School Year. 

Preschool & Level 1 = age based
Level Advanced 1, Level 2, Level 3 = age & ability based
Level 4, Level 5, Level 6 = by placement audition (combined with DXP Company technique classes, contact studio for options)

*We DO have Level 1 classes for dancers ages 9-12yrs & 12+yrs

*We DO have a Pointe Program & enrollment is by invitation or placement audition. Pointe must be taken in conjunction with a regular, weekly ballet class. 

As students get older they are divided into classes based primarily on dance ability. Students should always be taking class at a level that is enjoyable, safe for their body and non-frustrating, but also challenging, educational and inspiring.  It is rare that a student will advance to a new level each year. Most students will take the same level 2-3 years. The students will receive exposure to new skills the first year and gain mastery of skills in additional years until they are ready to confidently and safely advance.

How Do I Choose a Class Level at DXP? 

Danced at DXP during the previous Fall-Spring School Year? 
Enrolling For Summer
Preschool, Intro & Level 1 classes = age based
Levels 1+ register for the same level taken during the School Year as advancements take place in the Fall.
Enrolling for Fall-Spring Classes

All returning students will be emailed their recommended class levels in April of the previous Fall-Spring School Year. These recommendations are also available at either DXP front desk and by logging in to your account through the ONLINE portal.

New to DXP or Returning After a Break?

Communicate with DXP desk staff in-studio or via phone/email to determine the appropriate class level for your dancer.

SPECIAL NOTE

If a student is new to Dance Xplosion® she/he often begins in a lower level and moves up as the instructors and Director deem appropriate. It is always better for a child’s self-esteem to move up rather than to be moved down. However... if moving down a level will best suit the needs of the dancer, this decision is subject to the discretion of the instructor and the Director.

POINTE CLASSES

In order to take Pointe at Dance Xplosion® you must receive instructor approval AND you must take Pointe in conjunction with a regular, weekly ballet class. Everyone must receive approval, even if you have previously been on pointe at another studio. This is for the dancers' safety.

ADULT CLASSES

Dance Xplosion® reguarly partners with some of Austin's top teachers for specialty classes, such as Yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. These classes are noted on our Class Schedules and occur in Dance Xplosion's studios but registration, including level placement, is handled directly with the outside teachers.
