Two Performance Teams To Choose From!!!!
1. Ladies Salsa Shine Intensive Performance Classes - Tues & Thurs Nights
2. Group Choreography (Men`s and Ladies) Performance Classes -Tues & Thurs Nights
Joining a dance team is a fun and focused way to learn choreography and performance skills. Our performance class team students are very dedicated and work very hard, in a friendly, supportive environment.
Our expectations for our performance class students are the same as any performance level dance program.
We expect our students to:
* arrive on time
* not miss rehearsals
* practice the choreography outside of scheduled rehearsal hours
* be dedicated to the choreography and their team and partner
* attend all performances
* be supportive of the team and their partner
Our performance class teams pay different costs from our lesson program. While at first glance the costs may seem high, the specialized training provided and performance skills learned are more intense than regular lessons and the extra hours of training, and focused work, accelerate your learning.
We have outlined below the costs and time and expenses to be expected for our students. While many of these costs are only an estimate, we understand your time and money are precious, and we endeavor to give you as much information as we can, rather than surprising you later with sudden costs.
Student Performance Class Costs:
- $100 per month
- 12 + class hours per month
Don't let the price fool you! You get 12+ hours of instruction per month, plus stage performance training, great choreography and intensive personal work. At $100 a month, it is less than $10 per hour for very focused work, choreography and training. This is not your regular class!
We unfortunately have a no refund policy once you’ve signed up and are unable to continue for any reason. Many of the expenses of directing a dance team are very significant and prepaid. This cost has already been assessed and apportioned to the team members.
Performance Costumes Cost
- approximately $150 - $250
We try to keep the price of costumes as low as we can. But the cost for having costumes made is out of our control. Note that this amount does not include the appropriate shoes for performance (the price of shoes varies widely, depending on what you buy).
Final/Extra Rehearsal Expenses
If extra rehearsals are required close to the performance date, there will be extra charges for studio time. This should not be more than $25-$50 per person, depending on the size of the group. Make up classes will be charge at $40 per hour. These are necessary for students that miss a number of classes and are falling behind in the choreography to the detriment of the group and their partner, and despite help from the group. Ideally, you should not miss rehearsals. The team is counting on you.
Our aim to have a large team in order to accommodate performance schedules. We hope that our students are available to perform the choreography beyond their first performance.
Our invitation to perform at Congresses is dependent on the ability of out team to execute a "performance worthy" performance, as well as the number of slots available at each congress.
To perform at a Congress, the Congress organizers require that performers buy a pass for the Congress and workshops. This cost is completely out of our control. The cost for this will change depending on the Congress.
Other expenses to travel to perform at a Congress will be shared, whenever possible, among the team members, to keep costs as low as possible. These may include:
* Car Rental (shared by 4 – 8 people)
* Gas (shared by 4 – 8 people)
* Hotel (shared by 4 – 6 people)
* Food & Beverages
* Flights (If necessary)
