Wasatch High School Dance Company Advisor: Jennifer Hermansen 654-0640 ext. 3774 [email protected] Course Objective: It is my objective as the Dance Company advisor to provide a positive opportunity for members to be part of a team that represents Wasatch High School. This team will only have members that are prepared to work hard and represent their school in the most positive manner. They will treat each other with kindness and respect in order to build the harmony that a successful team needs. All members will have many opportunities to choreograph and perform. Requirements: Proper clothing. (dance pants, sweats, modest length shorts, t-shirts, tank tops- modest dress is required.) Hair out of face. Notebook & pen or pencil. Grading: Dress, punctuality and participation (10 pts/day) 1. Tardiness will result in a 5 pt. deduction. 2. Not dressing and/or participating will result in zero points for the day. This CAN NOT be made up. 3. You may have up to 2 absences without being penalized. More than 2 will result in zero points for the day. Please see me if you have more than 2 absences for make-up opportunities. Completion and performance of group choreography. (100 pts.) Dance concert performance (100 pts.) Other performances (50 pts. Each) Written report (100 pts.) Attendance: Please remember that this is our only rehearsal time. It is extremely difficult to get everyone together at other times of the day. Please do not schedule appointments during this time; only miss class if it’s absolutely necessary. The Wasatch High School attendance policy will be administered and enforced in this class. Key points of this policy include the following items: Students with more than five absences and/or tardies per term will receive a UA (Unsatisfactory Attendance) citizenship grade for that term. Citizenship Credit can be earned by making up each absence or tardy beyond five through attendance school. *All students must earn 28 terms of citizenship credits in order to graduate from Wasatch High School. Citizenship Grading Scale H = Honor S = Satisfactory N = Needs Improvement U = Unsatisfactory (No credit earned) UA = Unsatisfactory Attendance (No Credit Earned) Dance Studio Rules: Food, drink and gum are NOT allowed in the dance studio. Hair spray and/or make-up are NOT allowed in the dance studio. Clean up after yourself in the studio and in the locker room. RESPECT FOR YOURSELF AND OTHERS SHOULD BE SHOWN AT ALL TIMES.
