TROYANDA SOCIETY ATTENDANCE POLICY
Ukrainian Dance is a team activity; but unlike other sports, we do not have another “forward” or “quarterback” to add to the lineup when a dancer is missing. Each dancer has a special role and unique placement in the choreography of a dance. Much like the pieces of a puzzle; when one piece is missing, the puzzle is not complete. It is important that each dancer attends regular weekly classes to learn choreography, new technique and to give groups the opportunity to become a “team”. Special time is also given to help the dancers to get ready for performances preparing them for entering/exiting stage, lights, audience etc. Dancers who miss repeated classes often do not feel prepared for a performance and this can lead to a very negative experience for them. In order that each dancer and each dance group has the best opportunity for a positive and enjoyable performance experience, Troyanda will be strictly enforcing our attendance policy.
If a dancer has 2 unexcused absences Troyanda will contact the family and work towards a resolution for regular attendance. *Unreported absences are considered unexcused *2 Lates (10+ minutes) will be considered an unexcused absence *Excused absences include illness and family emergency/funeral - Any other absence is unexcused *Dancers who are injured/non contagious are requested to attend & watch rehearsals *Juniors+ - Unexcused absence: It is the dancer's responsibility to learn/review choreography BEFORE the next class. They may seek assistance of a classmate or utilize SEEWSAW videos if available *CHOREOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS ARE MANDATORY - Dates TBA Should a dancer accumulate 3 unexcused absences, the dancer may be removed from choreography and performances. Dancers will be welcome to continue to attend classes to participate in general technique instruction but will not be included in choreography (dances) nor will they perform in events or festivals. During the class time dedicated to rehearsing the dances; dancers who have been removed from choreography are welcome to sit quietly and watch. The removal from choreography may apply to one or multiple dances at the instructor’s discretion. It is our goal to have dancers enjoy their performance experience and feel that adequate preparation is vital to their success. Dancers who miss either of 2 weekly practices immediately prior to a performance without special consent from the instructor will not be permitted to perform in the event of festival.
MANDATORY EVENT PERFORMANCES
Malanka Rehearsal & Celebration | Vitaemo Festival March
Zirka Festival (Ballet & Enrichment) | Year End Concert
Juniors/Intermediate/Senior dancers will also participate in one “out of town” festival determined by December 2022
Communication is key to helping us to address each situation appropriately. If a dancer will be away from class; please notify Troyanda via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or message via SEESAW I have reviewed and understand the expectations of the Troyanda Society Attendance Policy
Troyanda is one the very few dance clubs who do not charge a costume fee for our Ukrainian classes. It takes a lot of work to maintain our costume library and provide our dancers with proper fitting costumes and with the growth of our club we are in need of more assistance in our costume department. If you are unable to help in any of the following ways in the costume department and would prefer to just pay a fee of $25 per costume that your dancers require please indicate that at the bottom of this form and this fee will be added to your dance invoice.
