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.

 

Welcome to A-Team!  We are the performance team at Perrysburg Academy of the Performing Arts.  It is our job and our joy to perform throughout the community and spread our love of dance.  In addition to representing the studio and having access to many performance opportunities (including parades, sporting events, and festivals), A-Team has the honor of opening our spring recital and appearing on the cover of the recital program.

A-Team is led my Miss Alisa.  The team serves as Ambassadors to the community and requires impeccable Attitude, Attendance, and Ability.

A-Team Expectations Highlights:

Dancers are expected to be at all performances.  The dancers are on a performance team . . . they need to perform with their team.  Please talk to Miss Alisa about any legitimate conflicts with performances. 

Most performances will have a dress rehearsal/extra rehearsal.  Dancers need to attend.  Again, please speak with Miss Alisa about any legitimate conflicts.

A-Team dancers serve as the ambassadors of our studio.  Proper behavior is expected at all times from our dancers and their parents. 

Attendance is crucial to the success of our TEAM.  When a member of the team is missing, it affects each and every dancer.

Attitude is everything.  We are here to perform and spread the love of dance to our community.  Dancers are expected to show kindness and enthusiasm at all rehearsals and performances.  Parents need to do the same.

Attendance and attitude will in part determine stage time in the opening number of the recital. 

Perrysburg Academy A-Team Policies

Being on A-Team is a year-round commitment from August until August.  Dancers who do not participate in summer performances and parades are welcome to return to the team but will do so as new members.  A-Team dancers must study throughout the summer including at least one technique class and A-Team rehearsal.

Attendance is crucial to the success of the team.  Dancers who miss too many classes or are habitually late will be dismissed from the team without recourse.  Miss Alisa will determine what is “too many.”  Attendance will, in part, determine participation in performances.  Excused absences for classes and performances are illnesses, death in the family, mandatory school events, or a family event such as a wedding. The following are NOT excused: Practice or game for another team or a sport, non-studio sanctioned performances, birthday parties or dinners, out of town guests, slumber parties, a sibling’s sporting event, etc.  Attendance is noted for ALL rehearsals and performances and will affect placement and participation.

Performances are mandatory.  Dancers are on a performance team and are expected to perform with their team.  Legitimate conflicts need to be discussed with Miss Alisa well in advance.  If a dancer misses a performance, he or she may need to make up with community service with Miss Pam.

Participation in performances and rehearsals, attendance, attitude, and ability will determine placement, roles, and participation in future performances and routines.

A-Team dancers are required to take one studio class in addition to A-Team.

A-Team members will be required to purchase Team and Basic Apparel as well as proper costumes, shoes, accessories, etc.  There will be strict adherence to costuming for all performances.  All costuming must be approved by Miss Alisa.  Dancers not wearing the proper ensemble may not be able to participate in the event.  Parents will be responsible for providing costumes.  Performance costumes are selected to be as cost-effective as possible while still looking professional and sharp.  Being on a performance team is an investment of time and resources.

All team members must be current on all tuition and fees to be eligible to perform.

Dancers must be willing to accept ANY ROLE OR PART given to them and fulfill that role with enthusiasm and a good attitude.  Not all team members will be dancing at every performance.  Yes, that means YOUR dancer.

Communication about A-Team will be posted at the studio, emailed to parents, and/or posted to the closed Facebook Page, Perrysburg Academy A-Team.  An email address must be provided to Miss Alisa, and a parent must join the Facebook page.  Short informative meetings will occasionally occur.  Parents MUST attend these meetings or send a representative. It is the obligation of the parents to remain fully informed.

All A-Team members, parents, and supporters are expected to show good sportsmanship and a good attitude at all times.  Parents are required to SUPPORT their child in their dance endeavors and to help make the A-Team the best it can be.  Attitudes of the dancers and parents will be taken into account when determining roles and participation.  Respect must be shown to all fellow dancers, dance instructors, and studio staff.

Assistance will be needed in decorating and maintaining the parade float.  Decorations will be determined by Miss Alisa. Parents must be willing to help out.  A few parents will be needed to walk with the team at each parade.  Parents must be approved by Miss Alisa ahead of time and wear a black Perrysburg Academy shirt or jacket.

There will be a charge for performances and extra rehearsals.  Fees are determined by Miss Vicki.  Charges will cover float decorations, float maintenance, coaches’ fees, necessary equipment, etc.  Each A-Team member is also responsible for bringing two large bags of candy for each parade.
