Being a part of a competition team requires a significant finanacial comittment. The team does sponsor two fundraisers during the year to help with this cost, but fundraisers may not cover all of the cost for your team fees. Below you will see some cost associated with being a team member. Please be aware that cost do change from time to time and the numbers quoted below are at best estimated cost. If your child should make the team, you will be setup with a team account and will be provided with monthly statements showing actual cost for this year.
All Team Members pay the following:
Exclusive to Clogging Team Members
a) We will attend three to four regional competitions. If we obtain the required scores to qualify we will also attend a National Competition during the summer.
b) All dancers need to stay for awards and pictures. It is also expected that, whenever possible, that you make every effort to be present at team performances that you aren’t directly a part of to cheer on your teammates.
c) All costumes, accessories, hair, make-up and transportation will be your responsibility. If you do not have all parts of your costume, you will not be allowed to participate in the subsequent performance. Points are deducted for this and it is not fair to the other students for this circumstance to not receive consequences.
d) Dancers will wear all costume parts, accessories, and make up as instructed.
e) There are no refunds of any fees for any reason.
While we can advise you what specific weekends you must be available for competition events, we will not know the exact day and time until approximately five days prior to the weekend in question. As such, the dancer must be available the whole weekend (Friday to Sunday).
Our competition team members will also be required to perform at community events, festivals, and parades. Our team members are ambassadors for the Grayson School of Dance and we will expect for team members to attend these perfomances.
