Next year we are planning to have two teams which will be divided by age and ability. After auditions we will be casting the teams to make the most cohesive groups.
AUGUST BOOT CAMP: (Dates are still tentative but this is the plan)
$300 not included in competition fees (20 hours of rehearsal)
August 19 & 20, 2-5pm (Sat & Sun)
August 26 & 27, 2-5pm (Sat & Sun)
August 28-31, (Mon-Thur, 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.
Both teams will rehearse on Tuesday nights for 2 hours per week in the fall/winter & 1hr per week in the spring. The week before competitions rehearsal will be extended to 2 hours. If you have a time constraint on Tuesdays 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 32 rehearsals throughout the year.
Calendar, Subject to Change:
September 15-17: Mandatory Retreat
January 20: Winter Recital
February 2-4: 1st competition
March 1-3 or 8-10: 2nd competition
April 5-7 (First weekend of NUSD Spring Break): 3rd competition
May 17-19: 4th competition
June 1 & 2 - Competition Showcase and Recital
We will be competing at 4 competitions.
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. Quitting competition team is not an option. 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 $140 per month and will be paid August-May (10 months). We run competition at no profit to the 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
15% costume fees
Your Competition Fees include:
What your Competition Fees DO NOT INCLUDE:
The 10 month competition fee is non-refundable. If a student cannot finish out the year, you still owe this monthly fee.
