Level 1-7

Arts Umbrella Dance General Program Level 1-7
About the Program

Open to dancers of all experience levels, the Arts Umbrella Dance General Program offers a variety of programs for dancers ages 6-12. Our ballet-based programs develop the strength and understanding necessary for long-term success in all Arts Umbrella Dance programs.

Our classes focus on the dancer as a whole, emphasizing physical, emotional, and intellectual development throughout the year. We celebrate the achievements of our dancers at the end of the school year with our year-end recital at the Vancouver Playhouse in June.

Experienced dance instructors and accomplished artists make up our wonderful faculty, who guide dancers throughout the year. Ballet and modern classes are accompanied by sought after dance accompanists to create a quality program for young dancers.




Placement in the General Program Level 1-7 is determined by academic grade. For example, Level 2 dancers are in Grade 2 and do not need to have completed Level 1.

Class Packages

All class packages include a minimum of one ballet class per week. Additional classes, such as jazz, character, contemporary, tap, and/or musical theatre are introduced as early as Level 2. Younger students attend 1-2 classes per week, gradually increasing to four classes per week by Level 5.


Dancers interested in a more committed schedule may be recommended by their instructor for the Level 3-5 Intensive Program after Level 2 or the Pre-Elementary Program after Level 5 or Level 5 IP.
