Competitive Dance Overview 2019-2020

2019/2020 Competitive Dance Schedule

General:

Dancers must be invited to participate in our competitive programs. Dancers who are interested in participating but have not been invited should set up an assessment with the director.

Attendance to all required classes is imperative. Dancers that miss an excessive number of classes, as determined by the teacher and director, may be asked to withdraw from the program. Dancers must attend their technique and ballet classes on a regular basis.

Class Requirements:

We have three levels of competition teams; Novice, Part-Time, and Regular Competitive. Novice and Part-Time dancers are required to take fewer classes and they compete at beginner and intermediate levels respectively at competitions. The following classes are the requirement outline for all competitive levels:

Competitions:

Our 2019-2020 competition schedule will be confirmed by the beginning of October. Except for special circumstances, all dancers are expected to attend all competitions, including those out of town. There are considerable fundraising opportunities to offset costs.

The following are the competitions that we are considering for the 2019-2020

  1. Winnipeg- Move Dance Competition – March 17-21
  2. Regina, SK Competition OR Minneapolis, MN Competition in APRIL
  3. Winnipeg- View Dance Challenge – early May

New for 2019-2020, we will be attending an away solo/duet/trio competition and convention for interested dancers in competitive levels only. Details will follow as the dates become available. This is NOT a mandatory event.

We will also be attending a FINALS competition in June or July. Exact details to be confirmed. Participation is not mandatory however, we strongly encourage ALL team members to consider fundraising so that the majority of the team can attend.

Competition fees are not included in the tuition fees. Competition fees are approximately $75 per dancer for group dances, and $150 per dancer per solo, duet or trio.

Solos, Duets & Trios:

Choreography fees are $350 per solo and $250 per person per duet/trio, and are due to the assigned choreographer at or prior to your dancer’s first rehearsal. For this fee, dancers will receive 4 hours of individual rehearsal time for solos and 6 hours for duets and trios, as well as group rehearsals with other dancers. Additional private rehearsals can be arranged with the choreographer directly. During the regular dance season, solo, duet, and trio rehearsals will be scheduled based on the availability of the choreographer, as well as studio space.

The studio will be responsible for assigning choreographers. All invitations for solos, duets, and trios will come through the director.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to Rheesa directly.
