What is Advanced Division?

Our Advanced Division provides students with the opportunity to study Modern Dance in a faster-paced, more in-depth setting.

As with all of our classes, ML&Co.’s Advanced Division provides quality dance technique taught by trained professionals in a supportive, encouraging environment.

Advanced Division differs from our Main Division in several ways:

  • The goal of the Advanced Division is ultimately to prepare students for the study of dance in higher education.
  • Advanced Division students commit to a Full Year of dance training with a Placement Session each Fall to determine which group he or she will be in throughout the year.
  • Although the focus of ML&Co.’s Advanced Division is Modern Dance technique, each student is required to take Ballet Fundamentals as well as Modern Performance to support his or her training. Students take class for a total of 4 hours each week throughout the school year.

The following classes are REQUIRED in order to be a part of the Advanced Division

Modern Dance

Ballet Fundamentals

Modern Performance

FAQS

Why does my child need to attend the Placement Session on September 17?

The Placement Session provides MamLuft&Co. Dance instructors with the opportunity to place students into several groups based on current level of experience in Modern Dance. Students will be grouped to allow for progression and growth as they train. MamLuft&Co. Dance instructors are all professionals in the field who have your child’s best interest in mind, and we ask that families respect the opinion of the instructors once the group determination is made.

Why does the Advanced Division Class Package include Modern Dance Technique, Ballet Fundamentals, and Modern Performance?

MamLuft&Co. Dance’s Advanced Division focuses on Modern Dance, the genre that our professional company specializes in. The goal of the Advanced Division is not only to provide students with a faster-paced, more in-depth dance experience, but to prepare students for the study of dance in higher education which requires that a dancer be a well-rounded mover who is well-versed in multiple genres. Thus, Advanced Division students are also required to take Ballet Fundamentals and Modern Performance in support of their technique so that they can further develop their movement vocabulary and artistry.

What ages can enroll in the Advanced Division?

MamLuft&Co. Dance’s Advanced Division is for ages 6-18. Where as our Main Division is organized by age, our Advanced Division is organized by group based on similar levels of experience.

Does my child need to have previous dance experience to enroll in the Advanced Division?

Complete beginners (and beginners with some prior experience) who are interested in pursuing Modern Dance training in a faster-paced, more in-depth setting are welcome to enroll in the Advanced Division and attend the Placement Session on September 17, however, we ask that families respect our professional opinion should our instructors decide that it is best for the child to start in one of our Main Division classes for the 2017-2018 school year. Additionally, because of the 4-hour per week time-commitment required by the Advanced Division, we stress that students who enroll in the Advanced Division have excellent listening skills and can remain attentive and focused for the duration of class. (Modern Dance Technique and Ballet Fundamentals are each 90-minutes and Modern Performance is 60-minutes.)

What do I do if my child cannot attend one or more of the classes for his or her group?

Before coming to the Placement Session on September 17, we ask that families keep all class times available for both the Red and Green groups. Based on the results of the Placement Session, we may be able to accommodate certain scheduling issues. If not, we may ask that the family looks into registering for some of our Main Division classes for the 2017-2018 school year that fit within their schedule.
