CHCA Dance Academy is not just an afterschool program; it is a dance academy exclusively for our CHCA students. We offer a variety of levels that include recreational, performance and competitive options. Our professional faculty features instructors who have danced and choreographed professionally throughout the United States and carry choreography and performance. Our program also offers an ALL INCLUSIVE tuition system, meaning you are charged a flat fee for classes, costuming, spirit wear, competitions, etc. This makes the financial commitment easy to budget. Traditional studios generally charge tuition and then charge for all of the ‘extras’ throughout the year. The only expenses not covered in CHCA’s program will be personal items (e.g., shoes, tights, hairpins, makeup), competition entry fees and costumes for solo and ensemble performers, and travel expenses. If you are new to our studio, it is necessary that you contact the Dance Program Director Melissa Kidd to set up an evaluation to help direct your enrollment options. Contact Melissa at Melissa. Kidd@chca-oh.org. No registrations will be accepted until you have received your evaluation and program level recommendation.

INTRODUCTION

with them national and regional awards for


BALLET TECHNIQUE CLASS Classical ballet technique class with barre work, center work and progressions. This is a noncompetitive technique-only class. No performances throughout the year. JAZZ TECHNIQUE CLASS Jazz technique class focusing on flexibility, turns, leaps and short jazz combinations. This is a noncompetitive technique-only class. No performances throughout the year. PERFORMANCE PROGRAM LEVEL Our performance program level requires one jazz technique class and one performance rehearsal (both on the same night). The students enrolled in the performance program level will compete one time per year, perform at one basketball game, and perform at Friends and Family Night. New dancers will be selected by audition only; open registration for returning Grades K-5 dancers, and returning Grades 6-12 dancers will be recommended for the performance program level through an evaluation. COMPETITIVE PROGRAM LEVEL Our competitive program level requires one jazz

technique class, one ballet technique class, and one competitive rehearsal per week. This will require dance two days per week. Dancers in this program will compete four to five times per year, and perform at three to four basketball games, Friends and Family, and ArtBeat. New dancers will be selected by audition only; returning dancers will be recommended for the competitive program level through an evaluation. PERFORMANCE PROGRAM & COMPETITIVE PROGRAM COMBINATION Requires one jazz technique class, one ballet technique class, one performance program rehearsal and one competitive program rehearsal. This program is a combination of both the performance program and the competitive program, which means you will be competing and performing TWO routines. This option is by audition only. SOLOISTS & ENSEMBLES Soloists and Ensembles will be selected by invitation only and be based on ability level and dancer readiness. TIMING All classes run late August through the last week in April and coordinate with the CHCA calendar, which means classes

will not be held on school holidays. Performance and competitive program dancers will have one to two additional choreography classes for each routine in August before the dance classes begin in order to learn their routine for the year. Competition dates, basketball games and other performances will be announced in early fall. FINANCIAL INFORMATION: A non-refundable $25 per student enrollment fee will be deducted

IMPORTANT SCHEDULING NOTE: Students enrolled in the performance and competitive programs will receive priority registration in technique classes. Because we have scheduled the technique classes immediately before or after a performance or competitive rehearsal for each group, these students will be enrolled first. If a technique class fills, a second class will be opened and you will be notified of the change.

PROGRAM DETAILS

**Since class size is limited and the annual registration closes on August 1, the CHCA Dance Academy program will be a yearlong enrollment and financial commitment as of July 31 for all students enrolled in the Performance and Competition Programs. If your student withdraws from the program during the year, you are still responsible for the full amount of your financial commitment. For students enrolled in technique classes ONLY, you will enroll for the year and the fee will be based on the full year. However, withdrawals effective for the second semester will be accepted if submitted to the Program Director in writing by October 1. In this case, tuition will be deducted through November 1, which effectively means the cost for the first semester will be greater than half of the annual fee.
