Soo Dance Company Program / Performance

I would like to participate in a performance. What do I need to do?

Participation in a performance requires a commitment of a minimum of two classes per week for Pre-Ballet, Level 1, Level 2 or Teen. If the student is in Level 3, 4, 5, they must attend three classes per week AND the two ballet company rehearsals per week for ballet students. Everyone is required to sign a five month term length contract committing to the performance and attend the classes that follow the performance.

Upon enrollment, all students who wish to participate in the performance must commit to attending the school for a five month consecutive period regardless of enrollment date.

What is the cost to participate in a performance?

There is a performance fee of $25.00. You are required to cover the expense of your costume (determined once the costumes are selected) and a copy of the performance DVD/Photographs Downloading ($40). Tickets to the performance are sold separately and you may purchase at your discretion.

I want to participate in the performance, what options do I have to configure the best classes to meet my interests?

Weekly class requirements are outlined below. Commitment to a performance includes agreement to a contract that states you will continue to attend classes and pay tuition for the remainder of the term once the performance is complete.

PRE BALLET, LEVEL 1
Show participation requires two classes per week.

LEVEL 2
Show participation requires two classes per week.

Option A: 2 dance classes a week (2 ballet or 2 non ballet)

Company Ballet Rehearsal

A company rehearsal every week is required for all Level 3, 4, 5 and Teen students participating in the show. These rehearsals are mandatory and they do not count toward your weekly technique classes. You are allowed one excused absence. If you are absent for more than two company rehearsals, you will be required to take a private 45 minute make–up private class. Students who miss more than five rehearsals will be dropped from the show. The tuition rate for each company rehearsal is $135 per term and is in addition to your standard class tuition.

What is the Show Prep Class?  Why is it required and how much does it cost?

It is our belief that ballet is the foundation of all dance genres. Students who choose
course options that do not include the required minimum number of ballet classes per week are not exposed to the same level of technique training as those who attend the minimum number of ballet classes per level. The show prep class is required to help dancers continue in fine-tuning their technique and choreography. Classes will be comprised of students from the same level and class. Times are predetermined and enrollment for this class opens at the start of each term. Specific dates will be scheduled at set times beginning four weeks prior to the performance. Two classes are required and are an hour in length. The tuition for prep class is $250 per term.
