Following on from a very successful year with the GARAGE, there is many new competition students this coming season, please read over carefully.
To allow parents to understand the aims of THE GARAGE and what we as a dance company are hoping to achieve moving forward we have compiled this document which will outline what is expected from both parents and crew members.
One of our main aims in the following year is to give crew members as many opportunities as possible which will include performances, workshops and competitions, I will try to include in this document as much information as possible on what THE GARAGE as a school intend on doing in the competition circuit which will allow parents to plan ahead. As a crew member you will be expected to attend all the competitions that are planned unless there are extreme circumstances which do not allow you to attend, missing a competition is likely to result in being removed from the crew. If not already discuss with Kayleigh prior to the competition.
I think everyone has realised that being in a crew is expensive as there is a lot to pay for throughout the year, this document is to try and highlight as much of the costs as possible to allow parents to budget moving forward.
On the last page you will see that there is a section which is to be signed by both the parent and dancer which states that you are accepting everything that is in this document and you that you will do your upmost to do all that is set out below.
Current crew members will be aware that we have performed at a number of events in the past 12 months and this will continue moving forward.
Crew members need to be committed to performances and need to be available for them; we will always try and give as much notice as possible and will always try and give at least 30 days’ notice of any upcoming performance and competitions however this is not always possible, where this happens crew members will still be expected to attend the performances where possible, if this cannot be done a discuss with Kayleigh will be needed.
If crew members are to miss two or more performances or competitions in a competitive year then you could be removed from the crew as it is not fair on other members who need to work on re-spacing at short notice etc.
As a company THE GARAGE URBAN STYLES will be entering a number of competitions throughout the competing year which all crew members are expected to attend we are giving plenty of time for parents to plan ahead, some will be a full weekend competition.
The purpose of this section is to inform all parents and dancers which competitions we are attending and to try outline as much of the cost associated with each competition. Some of these costs are estimates as I am unable to predict some costs such as hotels or transport as diesel prices change frequently and I am therefore unable to predict exact costs, but this is will be confirmed closer to the time.
Please note if the competition is an overnight stay or weekend away you will be expected to be 4 sharing a room. If this is something you are not combatable with, then it needs to be disguised with Kayleigh prior to committing to a competition.
All dancers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 18 year old for any competitions which involve an overnight stay unless arrangements can be made with another adult to supervise your child. Only in extreme circumstances will Kayleigh supervise on overnight stays.
