* PLACEMENTS

All dancers interested in joining our performance teams must attend placements on May 26-27th. Dancers will be assigned a combo based on their age/experience. The combos will be provided one week in advance through a video link. We will hold private lessons on May 24th & 25th for anyone interested in working with an instructor on their combos. There is a $20 placement fee per dancer. Placement times will be assigned and it is your responsibility to notify us within 24 hours if your dancer cannot make their scheduled date or time.

*TEAM CAMP

Preschool Performers, Elementary Entertainers and Starlettes & Gents will attend camp July 26-29th 5:00-8:00PM. This will include learning choreography, technique, improv activities and team bonding. Camp is $120 for the week and all camp fees must be paid by July 1st, 2021.
Preschool Performers will only attend 5:00-7:00PM and camp is $90. 

Clogging Crew will attend camp July 19-22nd 5:00-8:00PM. 

*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.
Preschool Performers - 1 hour/week
Elementary Entertainers - 1.5 hours/week
Starlettes & Gents - 2 hours/week
Clogging Crew - 45 min/week

*COMPETITIONS

Starlettes & Gents will attend one regional competition in Indianapolis. The 2022 competition schedule is yet to be released, but we hope to have these dates and locations available by camp. Most competitions are between February-May. 

All team competition fees are built into your monthly tuition. 

*PERFORMANCES

As an IDC performance team member you will receive many performance opportunities. Each team will attend 3-6 local events. This is dependent on availability of live events in 2021-2022. 

*COSTUMES

Each team will require one costume and shoes. This fee has been built into your monthly tuition with the exception of clogging shoes for the Clogging Crew. 

*SOLOS, DUOS & TRIOS

All dancers interested in competing a solo, duo or trio will need to fill out the following form: https://forms.gle/PN1YqsoxkqnYcfcg8
