Congratulations, your child has now reached the ultimate level at KGD - welcome to the ACHIEVE level. The culmination of all our student’s training comes to fruition as students at this level are now considered accomplished, technical and versatile performers. They have achieved an outstanding level in their journey with us. The pathways from here on are endless and generally, students will strive to prepare themselves for further training beyond their high school years. eg; a fulltime dance institution in the hopes to become a professional dancer or attain teaching qualifications. Students in this program still have access to the nationally renowned Dance Step teacher program (higher levels) where they assist main teachers with the younger classes. To be eligible, students must train at a high Ballet level and show enthusiasm.
LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR ACHIEVE LEVEL
Students will have the same dance genres of the previous level consisting of Classical Ballet, Pointe work, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Acrobatics and Encore (musical theatre), Contemporary/Lyrical classes (must study a technique class of Ballet and/or Jazz class in order to meet the technical requirements of this genre). Our more serious Ballet students will still be training full-steam ahead in our Elite stream at this level will still be undertaking 2-3 ballet classes per week - their general Ballet class and their Intermediate, Advanced 1 or Advanced 2 exam class, as a prerequisite to reaching the correct level for their Ballet exam come August/September.
As an added bonus we encourage students to seek participation in the Ballet Exam class above too (without sitting the exam, at NO EXTRA COST), in order to ensure they’re training at the highest level which will see fast-tracked results across all genres. Assuming a student is still
studying 2 Ballet classes per week they will be invited to join our ELITE COMPETITION TEAM in our 16 & under / Open Age levels level. Our Elite Competition Team students will learn 3-4 routines which will be performed at two main competitions for the year. Two of these routines will then be showcased at our end of year performance in December. Along with all ACHIEVE: AGE 14 -18 students within our ACHIEVE level being celebrated at our presentation evening in December by being awarded their certificate and medal, our Elite Competition Team and Ballet Exam students will also be acknowledged with their commitment to these extra classes and associated accomplishments.
Students in our ACHIEVE level will have increased opportunities available to them as the year progresses with access to in-house student’s own Choreography Competition, access to our Summer Intensive with industry-renowned teachers in January, Master Classes, all school-related social events, along with extra-curricular activities such as prestigious awards days ran by Cecchetti Ballet Australia.
**Please note an entry-level beginner student who is age 14 + will need to enter previous ACCELERATE level before commencing the preceding levels to learn the fundamentals of basic technique first, depending on the class/es selected.
