Being on our competition team is a commitment to your team, required dance technique classes, as well as a financial commitment. We try to be as transparent as possible of all the information and costs involved. Please contact Lacey to get the details of the team and cost breakdown (lacey@gaspersschoolofdance.com).


COMMITMENT

  • Attend your team practice, large group and production practice each week.

  • Attendance will be checked each round by our staff for dancers required classes.

TEAM INFO

There is lots of information to be given about our teams and we have an Info document with more details. But below is a brief overview.

  • Team Practice is Mandatory each week. Missed practice requires a private lesson with the coach within 2 weeks. Unexcused missed practice the week before competition weekend will result in removal of routines (groups, solos, duos, trios).

  • Required technique classes are also to have mandatory attendance. Miss
