A-Team
 Miss Alisa's Team

 

 Many people ask, what are the requirements to be an A-Team member? Very simple...the most important ability is DEPENDABILITY! Dancers are always welcome to be a part of our team, but those who do not have exemplary 1) behavior and 2) attendance at classes, rehearsals, and performances are not invited back.  And 3) the parent is as important as the dancer. Dance Moms who gossip or are in any other ways "pot stirrers" will cause their child to be dismissed.

We do not eliminate a dancer for any other reason than the 3 listed.

Perrysburg Academy A-Team Policies

Progress and interest are kept high when dancers attend class.

Irregular attendance slows both.

   1. The “Performance Team” year runs from August to August, with summer parades and performances an important part of our year.  Dancers who do not participate in summer shows or parades will be welcomed to return to the team, but must start again as a “New Member”. Performance Team must study throughout the summer (including at least one jazz technique class,  as well as A-Team class).  
 
 2. Attendance is important and those who miss more than “usual” or are chronically late will be dismissed without recourse. Miss Alisa will determine what is “Usual”.  Excused absences for classes or performances are illness, death (yours or a family member), or a pre-planned event (wedding, first communion, bat mitzvah, etc).   The following are NOT EXCUSED:  Soccer or other sport (game or practice),   non-studio sanctioned performance, birthday party or dinner, out of town guests come to visit,  Slumber party, sibling’s sporting event, etc.  Attendance is kept for all classes & events and placement is determined by same.   
 
 3. A-Team dancers are required to take one additional dance class, in addition to A-Team class.   
 
 4. A-Team Members will be required to purchase Team Apparel to be worn to and from events, as well as proper costumes, shoes, accessories, etc.  There will be a team jacket that will be required for all  members. There will be strict adherence to costuming for all performances. All costuming will be the parent’s responsibility. Performance costumes are selected to be as cost-effective as possible without looking “cheap”. Accessories and dance shoes will also be required.   
 
 5. ALL team members must be current on all tuition and fees to be eligible to perform.  
 
 6. Just because a child is an A-Team member does not mean that they will be performing with the team until a certain level of proficiency is attained and routines polished and performance worthy.  Dancers must be willing to accept any role or part given to them. (Yes, Mom, this means YOUR child).  
      
 7. To foster good communication, emails will be sent and there will be short informative parent meetings, which will take place on designated class days.  Parents MUST attend these meetings  or have a representative.  It is the obligation of all parents to stay fully informed.   
 
 8. A-Team dancers are responsible for their own travel arrangements for performances.  The studio will provide location, directions, and phone numbers.  A list of names and phone numbers will be given to each Team Member to facilitate communication for carpools, etc.   
 
 9. Dance Teachers are not responsible as chaperones, but only as instructors.  Dancers must also have one adult chaperone responsible for them when at a convention or performance.   
   
 10. All team members/parents/supporters are expected to show good sportsmanship and a Christian attitude at all times.  Parents are required to support their child in their dance endeavors and to help make the team the best it can be. We will need help with decorating/maintaining the float, chaperoning, etc. Any parent walking in a parade needs to be approved by Miss Alisa and wear a Perrysburg Academy Shirt.    
 
11. There will be a $5.00 charge for extra rehearsals that may be needed for any performance. Also, as it is costly to maintain the float and staff members will need to be compensated for parade hours, there will be a $10.00 charge for each parade. This charge will include candy needed, repairs to the float, repair to float decorations, new equipment needed, and staff wages.  (A good deal - Most people spent more than $10.00 in years past just on candy for each parade!) This cost is based on 35 or more dancers participating in each parade.
