The YABC class levels have been designed to allow students to work with others in their age group with similar skills and experience.  Students whose abilities are developing more quickly may move up through the levels as their skills and confidence increase. 

We place no pressure on young people to feel they have to work up the class levels. However, for those students who have demonstrated a high skill level and strong commitment, a place in a Performing Level group may be offered.

Entry to the Performing Level Groups is by invitation only based on the Directors’ recommendations. Performing Groups work to an advanced level, and hold a position of prestige and responsibility within the company.
