Foothills Dance Conservatory Advanced Track
The 2015-2016 year will implement changes for all advanced students. As in the past students will pay the unlimited price but will not have the option to pick and chose classes. All advanced students will attend Monday jazz and ballet, Wednesday ballet, Thursday modern, ballet and repertoire (when scheduled) and Saturday ballet followed by repertoire (when scheduled). To stay competitive nationally and maintain a strong foundation at FDC advanced students will need to abide by this new regulation. All prearranged absences must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org three days prior to the absence. Former advanced students who cannot commit to this program are invited to attend any intermediate level or adult ballet classes. Thank you in advance for understanding the need to enforce rules that will be positive growth for the advanced student.
