Class sizes at AYDT are kept small to ensure a good student teacher ratio. This gives each child the individual attention necessary to help them achieve their personal best. Classes for younger children are usually kept at a maximum of 8-10 students. We try to limit class size for children in grades 3 and up to 12. Some higher level ballet classes may have more students, as the students are by then more mature, eager to learn and there are no discipline issues.
