Competition team rules and expectations
Want to be a part of ELevate's competition teams? Here's all the information you need to know!
Competition teams are by application only (printable application at the bottom of the page).
Once teams are posted, results are final. If a dancer applies for a company, they are expected to participate in all mandatory company classes and activities. There will be no invitations sent and nothing to respond to. (If there is a time conflict, please contact the director.)
There are mandatory classes company members must take. (See Descriptions and Pricing for further details.)
Each dancer is allowed 3 misses per class. This includes all classes in which a member is required to take including ballet. Should a 4th miss occur, the dancer will be immediately removed from the team. If a dancer attends, sits out and takes notes (no homework or phone), a miss will not be used and the dancer will be counted as present. However, should a dancer sit out 3 times, the 4th will count as a miss. There are no excused absences. All absences regardless of reason are counted as a miss.
*Attendance will be monitored very closely. Plan accordingly and leave misses for illness just in case. If a dancer has a fever they must stay home and take a miss.*
Dancers must attend all competitions, in studio dress rehearsal (February) and recitals. We attend a minimum of 3 competitions per year. Competition dates are as follows:
BravO! (University Park, IL) March 13-15
Groove (Milwaukee, WI) April 24-26
Talent on Parade (Waukegan, IL) May 15-17
