2024-25 SEASON COMING SOON

Prior Doxa experience is required. Level recommendations are made by Doxa Instructors after a student has trained for a minimum of one year at Doxa in the Nurture Path. Only dancers who have been placed in this level are able to enroll. Dancers in this level have passed the Saplings Evaluation and have received Recommendation for Oaks by a Doxa Instructor.

Dancers who have been recommended for or have previously enrolled in a Cultivate Path level have the option to enroll in an age-defined Nurture Path level instead. This option may be appealing if their goals regarding dance are purely recreational, if they have a scheduling conflict with another extracurricular activity, or some other reason.

Dancers must maintain their placement in Cultivate Path classes from year to year, and level changes are at the discretion of Doxa Instructors and capacity in each level. To re-enter the Cultivate Path after opting for Nurture Path classes instead, a dancer/parent should submit by email a desire to be reconsidered for Cultivate Path placement.

Sometimes boys groups are combined.

Shirt: For boys' classes, wear a solid-colored fitted athletic t-shirt or tank in white or black. For co-ed classes, wear a solid-colored fitted t-shirt or tank in white or black or the level color.

Shoes: Black or flesh canvas ballet flats for classes. Black shoes are needed for recital. Sometimes, other colors are necessary for performances based on character/roles.

Pants: Sweatpants, joggers, or activewear pants that are at least knee-length. Pants should not be too long and get under a dancer's heels. Athletic shorts are acceptable with compression shorts underneath. Tights are acceptable with cotton or other shorts worn over.

See dress code for more information on this policy and to view all levels.

In the spring semester, dancers will learn one recital dance during their weekly class to perform in a recital in April. Boys will perform with their co-ed classes. One Saturday dress rehearsal (usually 1-2 weeks before recitals, depending on how Easter falls) is the only commitment outside of consistent class attendance that is required for the recital.

Boys need a pair of black jazz pants or dance trousers for recital (purchase on your own). Doxa will purchase a shirt for each boy, the cost of which is part of tuition rates. There will be no separate costume fees beginning in the 2023-24 Season.
