Anti Bullying Policy
Together we stand strong
Bullying will not be tolerated!!! Excessive Bullying will Result in removal from team or class and/or the studio. We pride ourselves in team work and sportsmanship and we will not tolerate attitudes of Bullying or Un-sportsmanship conduct.
This goes for our dance parents as well. We will not tolerate other families gossiping or putting other students down. Each student learns and performs at a different rate, they all have their own talents and skills that they bring to the team or class, and without them the team or class would not be what it is!
Competiton Team Members and their families are held to the highest standards and must set a positive example for our other students. Public bashing of other teams or studios is strictly prohibited! If you have an issue with another team or studio please contact the Director.
Bullying on Social Media will also not be tolerated and may result in Discipline, Demotion, or removal. Students and their families are a direct advertisement and example of our company are expected to act respectfully and responsibly on all Social Media outlets. If you have an issue please bring it to Mrs. Kate or your teacher, Social Media is not the place!
Students and their families are responsible for paying all Class, Registration, Practice, Workshop, Intensive, Master Class, Convention, costume, and competition Fees (including hotel and travel fees).
Class/Practice Fees are due the 1st class/practice of each month. Competition Fees are required to be paid before your child will be allowed to register to compete. (I cannot register students until all fees are paid)
Costume Deposit is Required before your student’s costume will be ordered.
Costume orders go out in October/November. All costumes will remain in possession of Mrs. Kate until paid for in full.
Any over due balances will result in a $20 late fee. Please see Mrs. Kate if you need to set up a payment plan.
Competition Team Policies
All team Members must arrive at competitions at the scheduled meeting times. This allows students time to get dressed, do makeup touch ups, and have time to practice and get into the competitive mind set before hitting the stage!
Cover Ups must be worn over your costume at all times outside of the dressing room, practices areas, back stage, and performance stage. This is a Performance must!! We don’t want to be giving the secret of our dances away before we even hit the stage!
NO VIDEO TAPING OR PHOTOGRAPHY ALLOWED at Dance Competitions due to choreography copywrite and student consent laws! You may take photos and video during awards however. If you’d like to video tape your student please do so at practices or dress rehearsals. We will also have a photographer come into the gym during the year to take photos in costume. Various competitive companies have the opportunity to purchase pictures and videos of your student as well. This policy is strictly enforced at Leap, Bravo, and Talent On Parade – If you get caught you will be asked to leave the venue and your student may be docked points or eliminated from the competition.
Coach Kate would also like to request that no videos of her or her teacher's choreography be posted on social media with out permission until after the competition season has ended – again due to Choreography copywrite.
All Travel and Hotel Fees and Accommodations are The Responsibility of the Team Families. You are welcome to book a Room at the Competition Hotel or Team Hotel. Splitting a Room with another team member or staff member is encouraged, as is carpooling.
Competitions will take place in the Kansas City, Omaha, or Wichita Area with the exception of Nationals which will take place around the Midwest.
Drop Fee Policy - any student that quits the team for any reason other than studio removal, military move, or injury within 3-4 weeks of a competition or performance will be subject to a $200 re-staging and choreography fee! ! Dance team is both a a privilege and a commitment! We are team and a family and all team members rely on each other to have success!
