Will my son/daughter be safe at the Weekend Camp?
Your children are constantly under the supervision of our staff, directors, and medical volunteers during the entire weekend. Our instructors understand the level of difficulty that their choreography entails and will do their best to instruct students to perform in a way that is safe to the safety of their bodies. However, they will ask students to perform outside of their comfort zones periodically, which is part of the purpose of our program; helping students to reach their full potential with performance challenges. If a student finds that what the instructor is asking of him or her is completely outside of his or her ability level, that student is welcome to request placement in a lower class.
Can I pick up my child before the final performance of the camp? While we realize there are other possible commitments, we highly discourage students from leaving camp early. As students are paying for their camp we want to make sure they receive the full experience, from their first "dut" to their final performance!
