SDCYB Rules cont.
- Dancers are promoted by the Artistic Director. Not by themselves, not by birthdays, not by parents, not by the calendar, and not by simply purchasing pointe shoes.
- Dancers are invited to join pointe classes by the Artistic Director.
- Dancers must maintain a Certain amount of technique classes. Check schedule for your level.
- Promotions occur when The Artistic Director feels you have mastered your current level of technique, been consistent in attendance, and attended the number of classes per week to sustain a specific level of technique.
- Teachers are always happy to discuss the areas that need attention and your strengths. Make an appointment to talk with your teacher- between classes is difficult and rushed.
