S/D/T's are awarded to students who show extensive dedication, leadership skills, and balance between all classes. These are 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.
Dancers will be chosen 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.
