*TEAM CAMP

All dancers interested in joining our company for 2020-2021 MUST attend the Summer Team Camp July 27-30th 5:00-8:30PM. This will include learning choreography, technique, improv activities and team bonding. There will be an event to celebrate the week, but this will be determined after competition makeup dates have been set. 

Camp is $120 for the week and all camp fees must be paid by July 17th. 

*COMMITMENT EXPECTATIONS

Team members are expected to make dance a priority. You are expected to be at practice and to give 100% effort in class and out of class. Each team member is expected to be at every practice, therefore absences must be excused. We do understand that things happen and certain events take priority. Exceptions will be made on a case by case basis at the discretion of the coaches. If a team member has more than three unexcused absences they risk removal from the team.

Once teams are finalized, both parent and dancer will be required to sign a letter of commitment. This letter will guarantee commitment through the duration of the season as well as reinforce our attendance policies.

*REQUIRED CLASSES

Each team member will be required to attend their weekly class. In addition, certain teams will be required to attend extra classes. We will do our best to consider convenience when scheduling required classes.

Elementary Entertainers - Elementary Jazz is required, Conditioning is recommended

HipHop Team - Nothing extra is required, Conditioning is recommended 

Jazz Team - Turns & Leaps Class is required, Conditioning is recommended

Lyrical Team - Ballet is required, Turns & Leaps is recommended, Conditioning is recommended

*COMPETITIONS

Teams that will attend competitions are: HipHop Team, Jazz Team, Lyrical Team. We will be attending four regional competitions within a 3 hour radius. Most competitions are held in Indianapolis, but we also might travel to Louisville if necessary. The 2021 competition schedule is yet to be released, but we hope to have these dates and locations available by camp. All team members are required to be at all competitions. Most competitions are between February-May. 

If enough dancers are interested we can discuss attending Nationals over the summer. This could require traveling and would be an additional expense.

All competition fees are built into your monthly tuition. 

*PERFORMANCES

As an IDC team member you will receive many performance opportunities. Each team will attend at least two local events, dance during halftime of an Edgewood game, and have the opportunity to perform with IDC at Disney World in October 2020. 

*COSTUMES

Each team will require one costume and shoes. This fee has been built into your monthly tuition. 

*SOLOS, DUOS & TRIOS

All dancers interested in competing a solo, duo or trio need to let us know immediately so we can begin pairings and assigning rehearsal times. You may choose the instructor of your choice to work with you on these dances. Each instructor will have different rates and availability.

Choosing to do a solo, duo, or trio will add an additional fee for competitions, costumes and lessons. All lessons will be billed privately and all competition and costume fees will be determined and added to your monthly tuition. An estimate of what these will add to your monthly tuition, not including private lessons:

Solos: $50/month

Duets: $35/month

Trios: $30/month

*TEAMWEAR 

All team members will have the option to order the teamwear package that includes an Adidas jacket with a rhinestoned company logo and an Adidas backpack with company logo embroidery. This is an additional cost and will need to be paid for by 7/30/20. You may choose to order either item.

*ADDITIONAL COSTS

There will be an additional charge for team makeup and earrings. These will be the same as used during the 2019-2020 season.

*COVID-19 CLAUSE

In the event that scheduled competitions are cancelled you will receive a full refund on all competition fees. Please note that COVID-19 might also impact our ability to execute all of the season performance obligations.
