*All pictures and videography of all students in The DDA Competition Team in classes, at competition, at performances, or at any DDA related event may be used by DDA on social media etc.
B: Attendance Policy:
*The DDA team is dependent on each dancers 100% participation and commitment. All classes, competitive and non-competitive, are important. The only way to truly progress and improve as a dancer is to be present. Your child will be judged as part of a TEAM when competing, and one student with bad attendance hurts the entire team.
We fully understand and appreciate all our dancers and their families have busy schedules and we will give as much notice as possible with regards to rehearsals and competitions – please do not ask for exceptions for absences.
There are no “make up” classes for any absence. However, should a dancer be absent, we encourage he/she to attend an additional class for the purpose of keeping up with technique. Attending an additional class does not delete nor give credit for an absence.
All members of the competition team are allowed one date of absence per term for an emergency only and if they miss more than two, they may not be allowed to compete. PLEASE notify us by email if you know already when your child will be missing rehearsal. If your child is sick and cannot sit and watch rehearsals please call/email us.
