MAMA 20th Annual Year End PERFORMANCE!
Written Expressly for the Dancers at MAMA! Stay Tuned for 2018 YEP Theme! !
WAITING ROOMS It can get very crowded in the upstairs waiting area. Dancers must put their backpacks/dance bags & shoes in the cubbies provided. Please try to keep voices as quiet as possible, sound travels right into the studios and makes it difficult for the dancers & teachers to hear! In order to help with the noise levels upstairs parents and siblings are invited to wait in the homework room downstairs. Please feel free to watch TV or a movie!
DANCE CLASS ETIQUETTE Sometimes students don’t yet know what behavior is expected of them in a dance class. Dance schools that produce good dancers make class behavior and discipline an important aspect of their training. Dancing is a social activity and we want students to feel at ease and have fun, but also to leave class having learned something new. Here are some guidelines to follow:
Accept corrections as a gift.
Be attentive while corrections are being given to others.
Parents can help the students view corrections in a positive light by asking them;“ What were you corrected on today?” This will remind them that corrections will make them grow as a dancer. This includes both personal corrections and those given to the class as a whole.
While working in groups or waiting your turn, be respectful of your fellow dancers, watch and learn from their triumphs as well as their mistakes. Talking while others are dancing is disrespectful, instead you should be watch-ing, counting the music, or working out a step by yourself so you are prepared for your turn to dance. Support and praise your fellow dancers.
WARM-UPS: Dancers may wear close fitted warm-ups over their leotards. ( Dance warm-ups make great Holiday gifts!) Please no baggie sweats, sweat-shirts or loose fitting clothing allowed in dance class at any time as the instructors cannot see the dancers bodies for technical corrections.
