Studio Policies & Procedures

Performance Based Curriculum

Pre-Show

Recital/ showcases are mandatory for all classes as our studio is performance-based.  If you are not interested in our Dance Recital, normal Winter/ Spring Semester classes will not be available after the registration cutoff date.  Theatre classes will perform in a showcase each semester and participation is required to enroll.

Quality vs. Quantity

We value quality over quantity and aspire to give the best possible education to your student.  Consistency is key.  Trials will not be eligible for enrollment after the Winter/ Spring enrollment period ends due to the nature of preparation that has already accrued for currently enrolled students.  We feel that new dynamics brought into the class not only disrupt the growth of the current students but do not instill a confident transition into class for the trial student either.  Trial students who wish to enroll may do so for the following Fall semester and will be included in the priority registration dates/ pricing benefits that currently enrolled students receive.

Attendance

All classes are drop-off classes.  A parent observation date will be held once per semester.  Make-ups will be allowed (4) per year (September- April).  If a student consistently misses class, it not only prohibits the progress of the remaining students but your student as well.  Make-up classes must be done at the appropriate age and level and must be approved by the director.  Tuition will not be prorated due to missed class.  Excused absences for family emergencies, extended illness, etc. can be discussed with the director privately to arrange the proper course of action.

Company/ Theatre Troupe

By invitation/ audition, intermediate and advanced dancers may become members of our Company and/or Theatre Troupe.  Company & Theatre Troupe members attend (3) or more dance competitions a year and also perform in the community at festivals, holiday gatherings, parades, and more.  An honor to be a part of and an even greater opportunity to polish an artist's craft, Company/ Troupe members are leaders and mentors for younger students at Premiere Performing Arts.  Solo, duo, and trio opportunities may also be granted to those artists who have earned the honor of representing themself on stage and at the competition.  Company/ Troupe membership is a commitment to excellence and a wonderful way to work toward future goals as performers.
