• This year we will not be doing a showcase at the end of the summer intensive. Instead, we will have an open house and be offering a workshop of masterclasses on Sunday, July 30th. This workshop will be a fantastic opportunity for your dancer to take various master classes with renowned guest instructors, who will be coming in specifically for the workshop. The cost of the masterclass workshop will be a separate fee from those of the summer intensive. Some of the master classes will be open for ages 9 & up, while others are specifically taught for older students. All interested dancers must be pre-registered and have paid the registration fee of $25 by May 15th. Please keep in mind that each class requires a minimum of 8 registered dancers to run as scheduled. We will send more detailed information soon.

There will also be parent observation days during the summer intensive. We will notify you via email which classes and days you will be invited to view the dancers.

• Supplementary Ballet Technique Class Description:

We are very happy to announce the wonderful addition of the Supplementary Ballet Technique Class to our schedule this summer. This class will give dancers an extra hour each week to focus on mastering a specific aspect of technique. For example, one class will be dedicated to turning technique and the following class will focus on jumps and so on. This special class will give the instructor the opportunity to work with each dancer individually and help improve the dancer’s technique.

•A 5% family discount will be offered to 2 or more students from the same household that are both currently attending Alma Dance School. A 10% discount will be offered to 3 or more students from the same household that are currently attending Alma Dance School.

•Injury Policy: In the case of classes missed due to an injury that occurs while dancing at Alma Dance School, a doctor’s note will be required. This note should specify the extent of the injury and the amount of time recommended for full recovery. Alma Dance School will credit the amount for the missed classes and provide the option of making the classes up at the beginning of the fall session or during winter break classes. If a student gets injured at another summer program while also attending the Alma summer program, Alma Dance School will not credit any missed classes due to the injury. Injured students will not be admitted to class until they have had a full recovery period, and present a release note from the doctor to resume classes. It is recommended that each student arrives 30 minutes early before class to properly warm up. This will assist in preventing injury.

•Lunch breaks: Each level will have a break and/or lunch break throughout the day. Please make sure your student packs a filling lunch and brings enough water to stay hydrated. Lunches should be packed in an insulated bag or with an ice pack as there will not be access to a refrigerator during the summer intensive.

•Studio Maintenance: Each student should remove street shoes before walking across the dance floor. All students should clean up after themselves and keep personal belongings neat.

•Payments returned by the bank will be subject to a $40.00 fee.
