Placing students correctly is a core aspect to the Berkshire Pulse Performing Arts Program curriculum. For placement, we carefully consider a wide variety of factors: physical skill, peer group, emotional maturity, years of previous study and age. Each student is placed where we believe they will have the greatest potential for fulfillment and growth. NEW dance students age 9+ who would like to participate in the Ballet and Modern classes are encouraged to attend one class for placement prior to enrollment. Returning students are not required to take placement classes. Placement classes are offered on September 1 and 2, and you can register below for free.
