Our Events & Costume Policies: -Our Event Policies: As a student performer: - All students, beginner to advanced, are encouraged during the year and have the opportunity to perform at appropriate venues for their level, which may include local festivals, cultural gatherings, academy recitals, community celebrations, school presentations, amateur competitions and other studio recitals. Our academy is not about performances alone however, our mission is to imbibe an ongoing healthy lifestyle through the medium of dance and to allow for cultural appreciation & representation of our students, to foster holistic development of the student, instill confidence and teamwork skills in children, & to provide a social outlet among adults. These public platforms when provided, are given as a voluntary/mostly free service to the community and to the students. They provided a time frame and a goal to most of our students. Many a time, academy spends considerable time and out-of-pocket monies toward such expenses which may include special props, lighting, sound, other material, travel & co-ordination efforts. Although participation is optional, and students may opt to just continue learning in class, as they still learn the entire pieces and enjoy the preparation process from “behind the wings”, participation in events aids the learning process. - Show support for other students, performers, & tutors by being present at academy recitals and events (and not just your own child). Your Support will beget the team’s support. -Space & studio: If we are hiring a special studio for your/our presentations or rehearsals, Studio property should not be misused or taken without permission. Any damage caused by you will be liable to pay. Please do not enter studio when it is not your designated time or loiter around afterwards. Please do not excessively linger around before or after the class time or other students or hold up the studio unnecessarily. (More details on these will be handed to you for review at the time of invitation to our next event) Have you read and agree to abide by all the Policies in this section?
