Competitive Conduct

  1. Dancers are expected to arrive for class on time, prepared and in proper dress code.
  2. Dancers that must miss a class are expected to catch up on all choreography/skills missed on their own time and arrive to the next class prepared to keep up with their classmates.  Dancers should notify the office of any anticipated missed classes so we can plan accordingly.
  3. Dancers are permitted to miss up to 3 of each class for reasons such as vacation, illness, schoolwork.  These 3 classes should not be missed between January – May unless pre-approved by the Studio Director OR in case of emergency.  Dancers missing more than 3 classes may be asked to leave the Competitive Program and no refunds will be issued.
  4. Dancers are expected to be in class if they are injured or not feeling well and should record choreography so they can practice when feeling better/recovered.  Dancers should not be in class is they are contagious or vomiting (in that case, please stay home and get better soon!)
  5. All dancers at DG are expected to enter the studio with a positive attitude and fabulous work ethic!  We love what we do and mentor our dancers through positivity!
  6. Parents and Dancers should be prepared to commit to the entire season of training, including extra performance opportunities, rehearsals, competitions and Recital.
  7. Solos & Duos will be recommended by DG Faculty via the Studio Director.  Being offered a solo or duo is an honour and dancers are expected to commit to extra time to prepare for Competitions.  Solo/Duo contracts and Deposits must be submitted to the studio before work on Solos/Duos can begin.
