Competitive terms

class levelling

Class leveling system put in place at Premiere Dance has been designed to accommodate the ability and ages of our dancers, and to be CLEAR to all parents.

Please do not be concerned with the “name” of your child's level or the names of the other dancer’s in your child’s class. It is just a name.

Careful evaluation of past performance, ability, and attendance as well as age and size have gone into all decisions of the class placement.

Although it is very hard to accommodate each student’s needs, sometimes the schedule may conflict with your families outside activities. Please be aware that the students will not be allowed to change to a higher-class level, due to an outside time conflict. Should a conflict exist, students will need to adjust their personal schedule.

Parents or students who question their placement should make an appointment with Carla for an evaluation and an opportunity to discuss concerns.

Premiere will be attending a minimum of 2 MANDATORY workshops this season as a team from mini level to advance.

Tuition payments MUST BE DATED the FIRST of each month (or the 15th if arranged with Carla).

Classes will start on Tuesday, September 1, 2015. MONTHLY FEE is the YEARLY Tuition divided by 10 months (September to June inclusive). You have the OPTION to pay first and last in September if you wish.

choreography

Once choreography for the competitive year begins, attendance is mandatory!!! If families wish to take vacations, please allot the Christmas break, March break, and the week prior to March break. If your child has been chosen for any additional small groups and has also been selected for any line representing the Studio, they must first participate in the lines before any extra small groups.

Any prop that is made for your child’s group and/or solo will be included and divided within your child’s costume price.

All choreography fees must be paid in full by December 20, 2015. Competition entry fees will be posted according to each competition due date; as such please respect the due dates provided.

Additional small groups and/or lines are chosen each year based on technical ability, style of the routine, work ethic and attendance record.
Students taking their Exam Syllabus classes, an additional $40.00 per month is required for the preparation of these exam classes. At Advanced ½ Level, an additional $50.00 per month. The cost for these exams will vary from year to year. If your child requires additional preparation in June for their exam, there will be a separate fee for these extra classes.

**PLEASE NOTE** Students are chosen based on the above criteria. Even though your child may have been chosen for extra choreography in the past, does NOT necessarily guarantee that spot in future.

Any competitive member found to be in violation of the above terms and conditions will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including discharge of your child’s competitive company.

competition rules

Students wishing to take extra classes may do so at NO additional charge providing they are paying the maximum monthly fee.

 

ballet attendance

If your child does not attend his/her ballet class, they will not be able to participate in any other classes for that day. We are implementing this rule by scheduling most ballet classes at the beginning of each day.

competitions

All competition dates are mandatory with respect to attendance. No student will be exempt from any competition. This is a commitment that all families will enter into and honour throughout the year.

All students must participate in their large groups before accepting solos, duets and trios.

All students are required to wear their team jackets at all competitions and during all award sessions.

Please arrive 2 hours prior to any competition time schedule. This ensures that your child will be properly warmed up and ready to compete.
