This semester, dance students will have a weekly online assignment in SKYWARD. Students will open their SKYWARD accounts as they would at school and the assignment is posted in their messages.
Students are currently working on their student choreography project. I am excited that they will have the opportunity to share their creativity with family, friends and the public by presenting their project on stage Friday, Feb. 5th. This will be the formal performance evaluation for the 3rd grading period. Please review the following guidelines below:
1. Students are to costume without cost to the parents. Students may utilize what I have available in our theatre and dance costume closets as well as their own personal items.
2. Dancers meet at 5:30 pm to dress and warm up for the concert. Doors open for seating at 6:00 pm. The show will begin at 6:30 pm.
3. Parents will sign their student out at the end of the show. Students will meet in the gym in class area (signs will be posted). Please come to the area to sign out your child from their chaperone.
PLEASE REVIEW THE FORMAL PERFORMANCE AND REHEARSAL SCHEDULE BELOW. REHEARSALS AND PERFORMANCES ARE MANDATORY AND INCLUDED IN DANCER'S EVALUATION AND NINE WEEK GRADE.
