Dance

Parents & Students:

Welcome to the third year of the Barbers Hill HS School Dance Program! I am so excited to see this program develop and I hope that it will continue to grow. Dance education helps students in so many ways. It provides students with a way of expressing themselves creatively, helps them gain confidence and body awareness. The dance program is designed to teach students fundamentals in dance and choreography, and to help students develop self-discipline and focus. Through dance, students come to appreciate rich and diverse cultures, beliefs, and societies. Thank you for being a part of this class! Some of the areas we will cover include, dance history, ballet/lyrical, jazz, modern/contemporary, hip hop, musical theater/tap, performance, choreography, physical fitness/nutrition, strength training and improvisation.

Expectations

1. Students are expected to dress out every day in black ankle length jazz pants & Blue BHHS t-shirt, hair pulled back, and jewelry removed. As this is a movement class, students must be dressed for movement. The 1st and 2nd time a student does not dress they will receive a daily grade of a 50, but only if they participate. The 3rd time a student does not dress they will receive a zero and the explanation will be noted in the grade book. This process starts over every 6 weeks.

2. Students are expected to participate in all class activities and be willing to try new movements, accept critiques, and rehearse material learned in class.

3. Students are expected to treat the dance room or gym as a classroom. There is NO food, drinks, or gum allowed in the classroom. Only clear water is allowed.

4. Students are expected to seek out any missed information when absent.

5. Students are expected to turn in any written or choreographic assignment on time.

6. Phones are not allowed in the dance room or gym!

Assessment

Assessment is an important part of instruction. A combination of teacher, peer, and self-assessment will be used. Grades will be recorded on a daily basis but then averaged and entered as a weekly grade. Participation & Dressing out will count as 60 % of the six weeks grades and written and/or performance assessment will make up the other 40%.

1. Re-testing: Students may retest if they fail a written or performance test with a 69 or below.

2. Tutorials: By appointment

3. Absences: If a student is absent for more than ONE day they must meet with me to be given a make-up assignment. It could be written or performance based.

4. Final Exam for Dance 1- Theater tech for our end of the year production

    Final Exam for Dance 2-4 is a performance in the end of the year production 

Students will begin dressing out on August 21st.

Dancewear

All students must wear ankle length black pants, (NOT TIGHTS). These are available at Academy, Walmart, Target and various other locations. Amazon carries a wide variety of black leggings. Please make sure that they are not see-through.

A Blue BHHS Dance shirt will be provided for each student. If this shirt is lost, there will be a replacement cost of $10.

Dance 2-4 students, including the Reserves Dance Team Training class, are allowed to wear all black as an alternate dress code.

Lost or Stolen Items: If your clothes are misplaced or stolen you will only have one week to replace the items without getting points taken off your dress out grade. Our room can be very cold! Students may wear a long sleeve t-shirt over the dance t-shirt with their jazz pants. 

Lockers and Restrooms

Lockers will be assigned the first week of school. Because of the limited lockers available each student will have to share a locker with one other student and lockers are only to be used during your class period. You may choose the person you would like to share with but they must be in your dance class. IMPORTANT: Please place all personal items in your locker! We do not want problems with theft and ANY items not placed in a locker, which come up missing, will be the responsibility of the student. Restrooms cannot be used to change clothes. We have only three stalls that must be available for those who need to use the facility during the dress out time. During class time students will not be allowed to use the restroom because of our short instruction time.

Cell Phones

Cell phones are NOT permitted in the classroom/gym and should be locked up in your locker. Referrals will be assigned if this becomes a continuous issue.
