Performance Team Information & Agreement
What is the Performance Team?
The PERFORMANCE TEAM PROGRAM at Hervey Bay Dance School is for dedicated dancers that want to excel their ability both on and off the stage. The PERFORMANCE TEAM PROGRAM gives students the ability to participate in a wide range of local & national competitions, gain industry contacts and work with leading choreographers from Australia and Overseas.

The PERFORMANCE TEAM PROGRAM allows students:-

* to focus on improving their confidence, stage presence, technical ability
*. make life long friendships through dance
*. to participate in a variety of classes to help them achieve their technical and performance goals including Stretch,
Strength & Conditions and routine classes for each age group
* the opportunity to represent the region at the Australia Dance Festival held in Sydney.
Entry Requirements
Entry to the PERFORMANCE TEAM PROGRAM is via Audition or Invitation ONLY. Students need to show a high level of technical ability, strong work ethic, dedication to themselves and their team, respect for their fellow dancers and teachers & the ability to take on and apply feedback given by staff.
Fees & Charges
All Classes are charged as per the standard class fees in the 2020 Dance School Prospectus Package.
Accounts for classes are charged per term with fees due by week 3 of each term.

All Dancers will be charged for an extra PERFORMANCE TEAM PROGRAM FEE each term which includes their Stretch & Strength/ Kick Turns & Leaps.

A $5 routine fee may apply for each routine students are in to cover eisteddfod entry cost.
Additional Competitor Pass fees set by the competition may also occur.

Extra Compulsory workshops will be billed separately.
*All fees & charges are listed in the 2020 Dance School Prospectus Package.
Performance Team Program students are expected to show 100% dedication and attendance at ALL classes, extra rehearsals and competitions/events (Draft events and dates listed below).

Any student that misses 3 or more classes without valid reason may be placed out of whole routines or section of routines. If your child is to miss a class for a valid reason (compulsory school event etc) they must give notice in writing emailed to the studio ASAP. All classes will be billed for regardless of the student's attendance.

Students MUST attend all competitions and events scheduled throughout the year. If a student misses a competition they will be taken out of the routine and may not be placed back in. Students that pull out of competitions may be liable to pay a $30 Comp withdrawal fee to cover the extra rehearsal to re-block the routine.

Your commitment to the Performance Team Program MUST be your priority. Whilst we do encourage students to attend extra curricular activities we do expect that ALL classes, rehearsals & competitions will be given priority.
