Dancers, the days are closing in and one of our favorite times of the year is almost here: Dance Experience! We could not be more excited. To get everyone on the same page, we are putting together a post for all potential dancers to get all of their information about rules, regs, classes to be offered, and all the important details in one area. So here it goes:
Rules and regulations:
★ There is no limit to the number of students any one studio can bring.
★ Teachers/studio owners are responsible for categorizing dancers based on age. Special consideration may
be made to challenge the dancers in a higher level than their age. Once a level is determined, no changes
can be made. Basic guidelines for levels – Petites, ages 8 & under; Juniors ages 9-12; Seniors, ages 13 & over. If a dancer is on the
cusp of a level it is up to the teacher’s discretion as to what level that dancer should be in.
★ Teachers must register. Registration allows them to attend or observe any levels of classes.
★ Dancers may attend in more than one city.
★ There are NO REFUNDS under any circumstances.
★ All dancers, owners, teachers, and observers should
conduct themselves in an appropriate manner at all times.
★ All dancers must be able to provide proof of age.
★ Dancers must attend all classes in order to be
eligible for scholarship audition.
★ Teachers and dancers who earn 50% of their income in a dance-related field
are considered professionals, and are not eligible for the scholarship audition.
★ Persons with inappropriate attire will be asked to change clothes.
★ No pets are allowed in Platinum workshop venues.
Classes to be offered:
★ The following dance styles will be offered at the Platinum Dance Experience: Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Hip Hop,
Contemporary, and Musical Theatre.
★ Classes for Juniors and Seniors will be an hour long; however, teachers will allow time for students to change
shoes, grab a snack, get water, etc.
★ Classes for Petites will be 45 minutes long; there will be a separate audition and we
encourage all dancers to participate.
★ Each class will have a dancer awarded an Excellence Award, chosen by the teacher
and given out at the end of the day.
★ Auditions will be held at the end of the day. Dancers must attend the workshop in its entirety to
be considered for a scholarship. All dancers are automatically entered in the audition and will receive
numbers to wear throughout the day. Teachers will not only be choosing scholarship winners from the
audition but will also consider the dancer’s aptitude throughout the day. We encourage all dancers to
participate in the audition in order to experience the process, no matter what level the dancer is. Consider it another class!
