All shows are mandatory for all competitive dancers. All dates, deadlines, and meetings provided in competitive handbook are mandatory.
Recreational, performing dancers must also attend all shows associated with currently registered session. Fall Session classes with performance dancers will perform in a Winter Showcase on December 19th (details sent in Dcofminot app to parents)!. Spring Session classes with performance dancers will perform in Spring Recital (June 3). Please keep in mind our rehearsals are usually the day before the show.
Rehearsals are required and cannot be missed without an authorized and excused absence. Any absence should be sent with advanced notification and dancer should expect to be replaced with another dancer if needed.
All parents must adhere to all recital/showcase and rehearsal announcements and updates. If a dancer is tardy or absent to rehearsal or recital/showcase without prior knowledge or proper notification of absence in advance, dance family will incur a $25 fee for taking up the staff’s time to locate and track down dancer before a performance. We cannot take calls and give specific instructions that we’ve already sent to everyone in advance when trying to plan, prepare for, and present a professional show.

Competitive registration runs annually. Registration begins in July and and runs for the next 12 months. (August 2022-July 2023).
