Spark Program Levels

At The Spark we have done away with assigned age groups. Age does not determine the level of a student, so as you are considering classes to take this season consider our level breakdown instead. Unsure of what level you are currently at, contact our Spark Admin Staff so they can assist you in evaluating your student's placement.

Beginner/Intermediate

Students who enjoy performing arts and who would like to take their training to a higher level. Students in this level have taken some performing arts classes or been in a play and have a general knowledge of performing. Most important is a strong desire to learn more.

Intermediate/Advanced

Students who have a good amount of previous performing arts training and are also seeking to perform and/or further their study of performing arts in higher education such as high school or college.  Students have a strong desire to be the best performer they can be.
