Each class in the calendar will have a one of the codes listed below. This will explain what level and type of class/price point each class is.
6WS: 6 WEEK SESSIONS: 6 week sessions are usually beginner classes designed to get you going in a dance or particular set of dances in the most efficient time possible. They are 1 weekly class for 6 weeks in succession and each class is designed to build upon itself. You want to start with the first class and not miss any if at all possible. Teacher can approve drop ins.
Di: DROP IN CLASSES: If the class is not a 6 week session, it is a Drop in class. While drop in classes typically do build on one another, it is not necessary for your to be at every class to get something out of it!
AL: ALL LEVEL CLASSES are designed to meet the student at whatever level dancing he or she is. The primary focus of these classes are on technique, characteristics and theory in the designated dance or dances. Usually these classes are not based on levels of patterns or figures. Please check with the individual teacher to get a better idea of his or her focus.
L1 or L100+: LEVEL 1 CLASSES are geared to the dancer that is completely new at the dance(s) or new to dancing all together.
