These days it is so important that dancers be as well rounded in the performing arts as possible. The expectations in dance for those who have an inkling to pursue the art seriously has risen far above what they have been in the past. New styles of dance have emerged and dancers are expected to be able to adapt to new styles.
For those students who are interested in pursuing ballet examinations in Levels 1 and up, they must be registered in a minimum of 2 classes of the same level and discipline per week, with a strong recommendation of 3 classes per week. The recommendation of 2 ballet classes per week is also for those students who aspire to dance on pointe in the future.
All dance forms benefit each other and we strongly encourage dancers to register for as many classes as possible in each discipline to provide the most well rounded training as possible. Students may add additional classes to their schedule up until October 1st, 2011.
The Costume Gallery, which we have ordered costumes from in the past is offering Beverly Miller Scholarships!
$10,000 in scholarships will be awarded to 19 deserving dance students to further their dance studies.
The Beverly Miller Scholarships are designed to give financial aid to dancers between the ages of 12-21. Applicants are asked to submit a paragraph discussing how the award will help them pursue their dance education. Dance instructor’s signature is required, and if their student is selected, Costume Gallery will notify the instructor so that they may inform the student. An official application, release form and rules may be downloaded by visiting www.costumegallery.net and clicking on Scholarships.
Applications must be received by November 1, and winners will be notified by November 23rd.
Students who are registered for a total of 7 classes per week or more may request a permanent locker in the change rooms. Students may combine their classes to total a minimum of 7 to acquire a locker to share. Locker requests may be made at the School Office. Locker allocation is based on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Students who are registered for less than 7 classes per week, may use the smaller lockers on a temporary basis by removing their locks and contents at the end of each evening.
You will notice in the ladies change room that certain areas are designated for certain ages.
Students, please remember that to have a locker is a privilege and the lockers are expected to be kept clean on a regular basis. No writing or stickers will be permitted on the lockers.
Absolutely NO FOOD should be kept in the lockers. Regular locker checks will be conducted.
