What are C level classes ? In order to keep the integrity of our leveled curriculum we offer continuing classes ( 1C , 2C etc .). These classes are for students who have completed at least one year of a level but have not yet mastered the skills required to progress to the next level . The C level curriculum moves faster and works on specific areas of development in an effort to prepare the dancers for advancement . Most students will spend at least two to three years in any given level .
