    • Policy Changes for 2024-2025 year:
      • We will no longer be holding weekly Saturday rehearsals during the winter months before Nationals. Instead, all Medley Teams will have a mandatory once-a-month Friday or Saturday rehearsal during the months of September – March. Dates will be posted on your team calendar.
      • Practices will no longer be held on Monday holidays in January and February.

    • Rehearsals may start as early as 6 am or end as late as 9 pm, depending on your team schedule. We will notify you by email about any exact dates / times that are not in this packet.
  • Every team class, performance, and competition are mandatory. Please reach out to your coach before scheduling anything that might conflict with a team commitment. We ask you to make efforts to schedule yourself in a way that will not compromise your commitment to the team. If you miss classes, performances, or competitions without coach approval (unless there is some extreme emergency), you may lose your spot and have to earn it back.
    • Each competition/performance will have a set call time. You will be expected to show up on time and competition/performance ready (hair & makeup must be done PRIOR to arrival).
  • During the months of January – March, it is crucial that dancers do not miss any classes unless there is some extreme emergency.
  • If you get behind in choreography, you are responsible to meet with the coach to catch up (at your expense), and you may be subject to losing your spot.
  • In the event that personal or family circumstances preclude you from fulfilling your team commitment, coaches reserve the right to alter any provision to better accommodate your situation; with the understanding that you, your parents, and your coach will work together to find a solution that does not negatively impact the team.
  • Our main methods of communication to parents is via email. In some cases we may use text message, phone call, and/or the GroupMe messaging app.

  • Please make sure you read and understand all emails and messages from your coach. Keep track of performance dates, competition dates, costume info, etc. We will not send out reminder emails.
    • Coaches are contracted based on their ability to make decisions that will lead to the success of the team. You can best support your team by supporting the coach’s decisions, even if you don’t understand or agree with them.
    • It may be necessary for coaches to make last minute changes, such as call time, formations, partnering, etc. due to unforeseen circumstances on a competition or performance day. The coach’s job is to make decision based on what is best for the team, and sometimes that means the team needs to be flexible.
    • You may be expelled from participation if you or your parents’ conduct is disrespectful to your fellow team members, coaches, the director, or other parents. (Please note: There may be no warnings given before expulsion if either the parent or dancer’s behavior is disrespectful to other students, coaches, etc. Consider this your warning.)
    • If a dancer or their parents engage in disrespectful conduct resulting in expulsion from participation, there will be no refund of fees or tuition that has already been paid.
    • You are expected to be a team player in all regards of the team experience, including: setting up and cleaning up at team events, unloading/packing/loading costumes, etc. This means you stay to help until you are excused by your coach!
    • Remember that once you are a member of a team, you do not just represent yourself. You represent the unity and spirit of your team.
    • Youth Team members are required to help with the studio competition set-up / take-down.

  • We will have 2+ boy and 2+ girl alternate spots for each team. Alternates will be held to the same expectations as the rest of the team, but will not compete/perform at each event. Alternates have a critical and challenging role, as they may have to learn multiple spots if another dancer gets injured, ill, or misses a performance. The alternate policy is:
    • Alternates will be guaranteed at least one opportunity to perform and/or compete during the year. This will be based on coach discretion. NOTE: This means we will ask some dancers to step out to allow others to compete/perform. We ask for your cooperation and understanding.
    • Alternates will be switched in temporarily if a dancer has to miss a competition/performance due to illness or other extenuating circumstances.
    • Alternates may be switched in permanently if a dancer gets behind in choreography/technique to the point that the coach feels they are holding back the team.
    • Alternates may be switched in permanently if a dancer gets behind in tuition.
  • NOTE: Some coaches may choose to have two dancers share a spot rather than designate alternates. These dancers would rotate in and out as the coach designates.

  • Ballroom Dance is a competitive sport! In order for your team to be successful, you and your teammates must develop as dancers. In addition to attending team and technique classes, you should:
    • PRACTICE: Dancers should practice frequently! To encourage you to practice as much as your schedule will allow, we offer FREE practice space to all ISD team members. You can practice with or without a partner!
    • TAKE PRIVATE LESSONS: Dancers should take private lessons! Private lessons can be done with or without a partner and offer an opportunity for:
      • Personal instruction given with the aim to provide individualized feedback
      • Working on personal areas of growth
      • Developing goals that match the needs of the individual dancer(s)
      • Encouraging improvement at a quicker pace
      • NOTE: Coaches are independent contractors who set their own lesson price and schedule. Contact the coach you would like directly for their prices / availability.
    • ATTEND WORKOUT ROUNDS: We offer twice weekly workout rounds for students to practice their routines in a mock competition setting. The benefits of rounds include:
      • Building stamina for competition

      • Dancers on an “A” team are required to be competing in (or working toward) at least one or two “Open” styles of competition (preferably International Ballroom and/or Latin). If dancers choose to compete in only one open style, they should also be competing syllabus in the other style.
      • Dancers on a “B” team are required to be competing in at least one, but preferably both styles of syllabus (Ballroom and Latin). Newcomer and American events are good options as well, but more focus should be made toward the international styles.

  • All parents of team members are required to participate on the Parent Booster Club. This ensures active involvement from all parents and alleviates the burden on the few who typically volunteer.

    • A sign-in sheet will be provided for volunteers to record their hours.
    • If your volunteer hours are not completed by the end-of-year concert, the corresponding fee will be charged to your account ($10 per hour not worked). Payment must be made before the concert in order for your child to participate.
