TPDS attends 2-3 competitions a year. Once we have a chance to take a look at the dates available we will post the competitions we are planning on attending for that year. When this is decided upon we will decide what groups will attend each competition. This is will be posted in our competition groups document. Your student is eligible for competition if they are taking a minimum of 2 ballet classes a week.
At the beginning of each dance year we will have a mandatory competition meeting for all parents. This meeting will cover any questions you may have about the competition world & we will announce the competitions for that year. It is highly recommended that you attend this meeting.
Being a part of a competition group is a responsibility, privilege & a high level of commitment is expected. Students must attend class on a regular basis. At home practicing is a expected. Parents are encouraged to come video tape their students competition groups during the last 5-10 minutes of each class. Please notify the teacher if you are planning to attend. Once competition choreography has commenced students attendance at every class is a must. It is very difficult to re-teach choreography every week.
Once we have decided what competitions we are attending the fees for the event will be posted. All students must have their fees into the studio by November 15th. 1/2 of the festival fee amount is due by November 15th with the remaining balance due by November 30th. Payments can be made directly online through the parent portal or in the office during office hours.
Reimbursement of fees is applicable through the Crowsnest Pass Dance Festival Society volunteer opportunities. They have meeting at the beginning of each month. Check out their information board in the waiting room of the studio.
