The world today is such a busy place, so many things to do. Class attendance sometimes suffers because of the hustle and bustle of today’s life styles. The one who suffers the most because of poor attendance is the student himself. The technique taught in class cannot be made up. Technique is what makes a good dancer. Learning to do a dance is not the only purpose of taking dance class. Students also learn valuable life skills such as responsibility, accountability, work ethic, commitment, and team work through dance attendance. The dance class is comprised of much more than what is in one dance number. Our dance routines are made up of technique taught throughout the year. If a student is not in class to learn proper technique, then the dance cannot be performed properly.
By missing so many classes, the student is often unprepared for the recital and does not exude confidence. Many times we have seen students quit midway to late in the season to join other activities. Please note, dance is a team effort. When one child quits the entire class suffers. Students often have to scrap everything they have learned all year only to learn all new choreography in a short amount of time. The class as a whole is frustrated and they do not perform as well at the recital due to one child's choice not be committed for the entire season.
Not allowing your child to quit midway through the season and maintaining good attendance teaches commitment, dedication, self-confidence, as well as team effort and responsibility.
You also have the option of taking the class but not participating in the recital. If you know ahead of time that January through May is a busy time for your family, this may be in your best interest and you would not waste money on a costume.
Please indicate your commitment to the annual recital below:
