AUGUST BOOT CAMP: (Dates are still tentative but this is the plan)
$300 not included in competition fees (20 hours of rehearsal)
August 20 & 21, 2-5pm (Sat/Sun)
August 27 & 28, 2-5pm(Sat/Sun)
August 29-September 1, (weekdays, time possibly 5:30-7:30pm)
If you have conflicts during the listed times you must let us know at auditions. You may not be allowed to be in numbers or may not make the team if you miss these rehearsals.
Regular weekly rehearsals will run from September-May.
They will likely be on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday nights for 1.5 hours per week. If you have a time constraint on one of these days you must let us know at auditions.
We will not have rehearsals during weeks when we do not have regular Rhythms classes. We have budgeted for 30 rehearsals throughout the year so there will be some weeks without rehearsals.
We will have the final calendar ready for you in August but we believe it will be something like this:
KAR Dance Convention: October 9 (Santa Clara)
THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT: Feb 4-5 (Dublin)
ENCORE: March 17-19 (Burlingame)
CELEBRITY: April 14-16 (Santa Clara)
KAR: May 19-21 (San Jose)
We will be competing at 4 competitions and attending one convention.
Competition Team is a YEAR LONG COMMITMENT. The 10 month competition fee is non-refundable. If a student cannot finish out the year, you still owe this monthly fee. We highly, highly discourage anyone from quitting competition team. It is very difficult on the group as a whole and teaches your child that they don’t need to fulfill the commitments they make.
The competition team costs $125 per month and will be paid August-May (10 months). This is higher than last year to cover a 4th competition. We run competition at no profit to studio. We only charge you to cover the costs.
This breaks down to about:
75% competition fees (does not go to studio at all)
10% coaching fees
10% costume fees
5% team apparel
Your Competition Fees include:
What your Competition Fees DO NOT INCLUDE:
Competition is a YEAR LONG COMMITMENT. If for some reason your child is unable to continue with competition you will still owe your fees through May.
The 10 month competition fee is non-refundable. If a student cannot finish out the year, you still owe this monthly fee. We highly, highly discourage anyone from quitting competition. It is very difficult on the group as a whole and teaches your child that they don’t need to fulfill the commitments they make.
We will be looking for parents to act as team parents. These parents would be in charge of organizing food for some of the events, rides to competitions, and some special treats throughout the year. Team parents may also be in charge at some of the competitions. It's likely that Kate will not be able to attend all of the competitions so the team parent would need to check in at the competition and monitor students backstage to make sure they are getting ready. (It's easier than you think!)
If you are interested in being a Competition Team Parent, please email us to let us know.
