REGISTER NOW

Lower School levels are determined by age at start of season. Students stay in the same level for the full season, even if they "age up" during that year.

Typically, students spend one year in Sweet Peas, and two years in Buttercups and Daisies. All age ranges are approximate, and parents are welcome to inform us if they believe their dancer would do better in a younger group. Moving a dancer to a higher level than their age group is only done at the recommendation of the instructor and rarely without at least one completed season of classes at Doxa.

Students begin receiving written end-of-season evaluations when they have turned 9, or will before the following season. Their instructors will either recommend at that time that they stay in Daisies another year or move to Lilies (Intermediate School). See Level Placements under Policies for more information.
