Placements - Company Teams & Ballet Classes
Placement INFO – Company Teams & Ballet Classes 2023-2024
Want your dancer to excel and take her dancing to new heights? Come see how our Competition teams can help your dancer reach their goals! On our teams, we have more time to focus on technique, strength, tumbling, choreography, artistic development, and so much more than we do in our other classes. These dancers really excel. Come see what all the buzz is about!
All Placements will be Tuesday August 1st at Dance Magic Studios.
If unable to attend placement for a legitimate, unavoidable, excusable reason, please contact Nicole Mikkelson for a private placement. However, this is not recommended. It is always best for your dancer to audition with the group. You should contact us before August 1st to schedule a private placement. Private Placement Fee is $35 (this covers instructor's & director's time). Private placements will be allowed on a case-by-case basis.
Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to fill out the Team Agreement Form, assign your dancer a number, and drop off your dancer. PLEASE do not be late to Placements!
PARENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO WATCH DURING PLACEMENTS. Please plan to drop your dancer off and leave. The dancers are far more nervous when you watch. This should be a positive experience for them. We want to see them at their best. :)
Dancers will be assigned a NUMBER at placements. Results will be posted on our website within 24-48 hours by dancer's audition NUMBER only. We will also make an announcement on our Facebook page when we have posted the results.
