December 2022 Newsletter

The holidays are officially here! We are wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy holiday season!

This time of year is always a fun time as students reflect on their journey since August and see how much stronger they are in their dancing skills!

Over the next couple of weeks teachers will be completing student assessments. Each student at 360 receives a progress report from their teacher. The progress report will also include a skills checklist for their class. This checklist is what we use to determine if dancers are ready for the next level. It also provides a visual for both you and your dancer to see their growth and what they are focusing on.

At this time of year students typically stay in their current levels for one more semester before moving levels in the summer session, however we understand that each dancer is unique and they may be ready to move forward.

On the progress reports you may see some items as NT. This means "Not Taught Yet". Like in math, you must first master step 1 before you can move over to step 2. You must be able to add numbers before you can learn to multiply. Same goes for dance!

Progress reports are a great tool to help dancers reflect on their progress, celebrate their successes, and help them set new goals and habits! These will be uploaded in your parent portal on December 20th!
