Please read our Competitive Policies- There policies are intact to hold our high standards of a Competitive Level at CSOD. Our mission is to create a platform for dedicated, talented kids to compete against other studios across Ontario. We hold an audition process so that the dancers can be properly placed in a class that dances well together, and have similar technical abilities. Not every dancer dances the same, so we decide placement on a number of variables: natural ability, technique, flexibility, artistic movement, willingness to learn, prior studio history (attendance, attitude) and a positive attitude. Age does not account towards final decision making, nor does the number of years each dancer has trained for. ------------------------ ~Two weekly Technique classes are mandatory (one of them must be Ballet tech unless you are solely a Hip Hop dancer. In this case, Hip hop dancers must have a Hip Hop Tech). We must ensure every dancer is getting trained consistently to ensure growth in flexibilty, strength and technique. Missing just one technique class will set back their training. A total of 5 tech classes can be missed throughout the season. If more than 5 occur, the dancer may not be able to compete. ------------------------ ~A dress code of Black Bodysuits and tights (pink, beige or black) must be worn to Technique classes. Appropriate footwear must also be worn during all classes. Proper attire is essential to gain the most out of your classes, by giving proper foot support, and by letting your teacher see your body lines, enabling them to give accurate corrections. Dancers who do not have appropriate technique attire will be asked to leave the classroom and get changed. We will have rental clothes available for students who forgot. Black Skirts or bike shorts may be worn over top of your bodysuit. ------------------------ ~Dancers will be asked to do solos, duets and trios, and will be in a style that they compete in already, in a group. S/D/T's will not be accepted if a dancer does not compete in this style, with a group. Weekly training in each style is very important to gain specific technique and confidence. Having occasional private lessons for S/T/D's does not give the dancer enough experience in the genre. S/D/T's are awarded to students who show extensive dedication, leadership skills, and balance between all classes. These should be considered a privilege, above and beyond regular classes. Account balances must be up to date in order to have a S/D/T. Payment for these routines must be paid to the choreographer up front, or divided into each private lesson.
These policies must be followed and respected. Thank you
