Parent Meeting for Jr and Sr Academy Students

Saturday, Sep. 26th, 2pm

382 Glynn Street North

Fayetteville, GA

Mandatory Meeting:


Parent Meeting for Junior and Senior Academy Students Only.

RSVPs are enabled for this event.

PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE TRAINING

The Jr and Sr Academy will be performing pre-professionally as apart of their dance training. Please note the following.

1. Performances are based on the dancer's knowledge of choreography, attendance, and up-to-date account status. Dancer's will have to audition for each performance. All dancer's may not be needed for every performance. It is in the best interest of the dancer to practice at home. Performances are not showcases. We expect each dancer to act accordingly to the professional standards set forth by RVDA. We will perform as Reigning Victory Dance Ensemble. Please help your child understand that they may get cut from a performance if the director feels they are not ready. They should keep practicing.

2. We will try to car pool as much as we can. We will always leave and return from the studio.

3. Parents may be required to drop students off.

4. Some events will require purchase of event ticket because we are performing as part of the entertainment for private events. You will be notified of fees. In that case you may choose to drop your child off and pick them back up. Children will always be accompanied by at least two members of the RVDS staff.


5. Dancers will be dismissed as a group during performances. Dancers are only allowed to leave at the directors discretion during some performances.


6. We are called on to dance at several events monthly. Some events are very last minute. That is the nature of this business sometimes. We will do our best to provide as much information as we can in a timely manner. We may not know full details upfront. Please be open for changes. Some events are cancelled after they have been arranged due to conflict of interest.

This is where we will post things specifically for them. It will be interactive. They should let us know about their accomplishments and milestones so that we may fully support them. We want this to be a place where your child creates memories and where they can receive extra encouragement. We will have an honor roll list at the end of every term. Those on the list will be rewarded. Those who do not make the list will be acknowledge as well in some way. Please make sure we get a copy of your child's report card.
