   COMPETITIVE TEAM QUALIFICATIONS AND AGREEMENT

 

QUALIFICATIONS

1.   Students attitude/attendance from all classes and shows from previous season will be reviewed

prior to placement.         

2.  Students ability.

3.  All competitive team students are required to take a ballet class with Dance Dynamics.

4.  EVERY student who becomes a member of the team agrees to his/her commitment to dance       

    with Dance Dynamics Competitive Team for the entire season of 2019-2020.  If after 30 days

    of the first class, a student decides not to participate, no refunds will be made and

additional charges may be applied.

5.  Each student is an individual and will be evaluated as such.  If a student should progress past

    the requirements of a given group, he/she will be moved up accordingly.  If the student fails to

    meet the requirements of the group, he/she may be held back until the necessary requirements

    are made.

6.  All classes are mandatory and may not to be missed for any reason other than illness (contagious,                                                          

    vomiting or fever), family emergency and school function for grade.  Fall and spring sports are

    negotiable and must be discussed with all affected instructors and Miss Brianna.

    A student calendar will be required two weeks in advance for the

    schedule of practices and games. Students may not miss class the week of a competition or                            

    recital under any circumstances.

7.  Students on probation will be re-evaluated after the first month of classes.  At that time, the

     instructor of that class will make the recommendation to keep the student in that class or move

     them to a more appropriate class.

 

COMPETITION ENTRY FEES AND CLASS TUITION

1.  Competition entry fees are due up to 120 days prior to a competition date.  IF FEES ARE                                

    NOT PAID ON TIME, THERE WILL BE A $5 CHARGE PER DANCE, PER ROUTINE AS

    from the team.

    late with tuition.  All tuition is to be paid on a monthly basis.  NO EXCEPTIONS!

 

 COMPETITION ATTENDANCE AND BEHAVIOR

1.  Students must be supportive of fellow dancers.  Competitive team members must stay to support

Their team the entire session they are performing (meaning they stay to watch and support the                               

groups from our studio until the end of those awards). 

2.  Students and parents are expected to behave appropriately at all events.  Parents (unless pre-

    approved by an instructor) are NOT ALLOWED in the back stage area or dressing rooms.  A team

    parent will be designated for each class to help in making sure everyone has what they need

    and gets help with any quick changes.  I will designate more if needed.  Students are expected

    To treat their parents/instructors/classmates/competition patrons with respect! Parents will not

be allowed to be with students and instructors during stretches, rehearsals or backstage at

competitions. Friends, relatives and significant others are welcome to attend competitions but are

not welcome to be backstage at any time.

QUALIFYING AND NON-QUALIFYING ROUTINES

1.  All routines choreographed at Dance Dynamics must be registered by Dance Dynamics

instructors only.  All competitive group routines will dance in our annual recital.  If any student

or group would like to use a routine outside of the studio, they must have written consent

    from the choreographer and Miss Brianna.

    2.  If we qualify for nationals at any of our regional events, there is a possibility of traveling to

    a national competition in the summer.  A team meeting would be called and a vote will take

    place for each class.  My requirements for nationals are placing in the top 3 at every competition

   receiving highest possible awards.

 

COSTUME REQUIREMENTS

1.  Costumes are very specific.  Students must have the exact same shoes, hair, make-up, jewelry

    and undergarments.

2.  All students are required to be dressed in Dance Dynamics attire:  New students will have an

opportunity to purchase warm ups in September. Cost will be approximately $85 for a jacket and $40 for the matching warm up pants.

 

REFUNDS

1.  There will be absolutely no refunds on competition fees, classes, costumes, conventions, camps

    or warm ups.

QUESTIONS/COMMENTS/CONCERNS

1.  If you have any, please contact Miss Brianna directly to set up a conference or e-mail

    briannanovak@live.com.  Please do not voice your concerns, questions or comments to the

    other parents or students as this only creates unnecessary issues and problems.

 

****Please remember that all teachers have different requirements and different styles of choreography.  We all teach differently.  It is the teachers discretion on routines, completion, progress, etc.  All competition pieces are property of Dance Dynamics, permission must be given to use competitive pieces elsewhere. I will do my best to work around school and family commitments but must be notified of them as soon as possible.  If an event is already scheduled, there is nothing I can do to change.

 

****This agreement must be signed and dated prior to the season start date!
