In Series Level 3, we take the foundation established in Level 1 & 2 and build upon it, offering students the chance to delve deeper into their dance journey. This level emphasizes a comprehensive understanding of both dance roles, incorporating accelerations, encouraging creative expression, introducing directional changes, and honing the ability to execute precise movements in alignment with musical timing. Students in Series Level 3 are challenged to embrace a heightened level of creativity, infusing their dance with personal expression while maintaining technical precision. The goal of Series Level 3 is to not only bolster technical proficiency but also to broaden each student's dance vocabulary, equipping them with a more comprehensive and expressive repertoire of movements to draw upon in their dance endeavors. This stage of the series is all about growth, self-expression, and taking your dance skills to the next level.
