Our Rhythm Dancers Program at River Rhythms Dance Center is split in to levels based on the age of the dancer as well as their developmental ability. For the most part a child’s physical development and maturity develops with age so this is why classes are typically split by age level. In the circumstance that a child may be more advanced than their class placement, the teacher will approach the parent about moving their child in to a different class that will best meet the needs of that dancer.
