Placement
Placement in the Definitely Dance Company is based on the following criteria: technique,
potential, commitment level, enthusiasm, attitude and behaviour in class, attendance and stage
presence. Instructors will place students in the appropriate class.

Attendance & Time Commitment
A dance company is a team. Just as sports teams require all players to attend practices, dance
companies require their dancers to attend all classes and rehearsals. Absences will not only affect
the individual dancer, but the class as a whole.
Each class is 55 minutes in length.
For classes with a ‘waiting list’ your contract will be terminated and the spot will be filled. Each
dancer is allowed up to four (4) unexcused consecutive absences from Dance classes. Written
notice will be provided on the third (3rd) missed class.
*Excused absences must receive prior approval from the director; advance notice of absence
does not mean it is excused. The following are considered "excused" absences:
 Death in the immediate family
 Scheduled school programs or performances required for credit
 Wedding or religious dedication of you or a member of your family
 If you are seriously ill or infectious
Punctuality is just as important as attendance! Please be on time and prepared for class!
MINOR STUDENTS
It is the parents responsibility to ensure their child attends each class. Definitely Dance will not
reschedule any class missed by the student.
Please be advised that Definitely Dance will not be held responsible for any student who is
delivered to the studio early.
Please ensure you retrieve your child from the studio on time. A $5 fee will be automatically
added to your account for every 15 minutes following completion of the class.
Parents are not permitted to watch the dance classes. Assigned dates for viewing will be
provided to the students in writing
Courtesy and Respect
All Company members will be held to the highest standards of conduct. Communicating
negatively about anyone in or outside our studio will not be tolerated. Company members are
expected to show courtesy and respect to all instructors and other students. Any student who
exhibits repeated negative or disrespectful behaviour will ultimately be asked to leave the
Company following a meeting with the students' parent or legal guardian. If any concerns arise
they must be addressed in a private scheduled meeting with the director and/or instructor.

Definitely Dance dancers are always respectful, supportive, encouraging and are positive in
spirit, attitude and behaviour.
In addition, our 'waiting room' is not a playground! Vandalism of the 'waiting room', office or
studio will not be tolerated and immediate dismissal will follow with no refund.
