❤️DANCE TEAM REHEARSALS:
Weekly Team rehearsals will begin Sun., September 20th. The schedule will be sent out with the invitations.
$198 total per EACH group dance competed. This is broken down into 9 payments at $22.00 per EACH group, per month, Sept-May. Plus a one time $10 Dance Team Fee per EACH group routine you compete. The $10 fee and $22.00 per EACH group September payment is due by the first rehearsal. The total cost of team can be paid up front if you choose. (April and May fees are combined and due April 1st.) On years we attend Nationals there may be an additional month of Team tuition.
This is considered tuition for the competition classes only and is separate from your regular monthly studio class tuition.
You MUST take a weekly class in the genre of each dance you’re competing. For example; If you’re competing a Hip-Hop dance you must be enrolled in and attend a weekly Hip-Hop class.
All team members must also take a technique class unless only competing in Hip Hop or Tap. Students excessively absent from their weekly class may result in removal from the team.
