See Dance Documents for Concert/Costume Details
Participation in the dance concert and practices is mandatory. Participation in any kind of dress rehearsal (after school or during school) is mandatory.
By March 17 you must inform Mrs. Harwell if you plan on missing the concert due to family trips/graduations etc (you will still learn the choreography and participate in class). After this date, choreography will be taught and set and absences during the concert will not be excused unless family or medical emergency.
If you plan on playing Winter sports it is your responsibility to inform your coaches of the concert dates as soon as you make the team. Once we start dance choreography you will be placed in the dance for a grade. If you are unwilling to communicate with the teachers and coaches - you will be liable for grades being dropped.
*The only exception to missing the concert without prior approval is a family or medical emergency. (IE: death in the family, hospital/DR note). Work and Sports are not exceptions to missing the concert/practices - you must have committed to the dance concert by October 28. You are responsible for informing your coach of rehearsal conflicts. If you are absent several days during learning choreography, the teacher has the right to remove you from the concert possibly resulting in lowering scores for grades.
