Under no circumstance should a student come to marching rehearsal in Crocs, flip-flops, sandals, etc. Sunglasses and a hat are highly recommended. Students should also be sure to put on sunscreen prior to rehearsal.

Stay hydrated!!! Each night before rehearsal, please make sure to drink water. Come to each and every rehearsal with either a Camelback or a water jug/bottle of water tethered to a strap that you can sling over your shoulder. You will get breaks, but you should drink water when you need it during rehearsal.
 
Take care of yourself! Eat breakfast each morning!!! Give your body some calories to burn so that you don’t crash.
 
All football players report for band until football practice starts in August. Once football begins, go to
football practice and come to band rehearsal only when you do not have football practice.

Every effort is made to minimize summer rehearsal time. PLEASE try to schedule vacations and trips away
from these dates, if at all possible. Please contact me if there is a problem so I can account for each band
member. I am very much looking forward to working with all of these young people.

Dance Parents & Students:

Welcome to the second year of the Barbers Hill HS 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!

OUR CURRICULUM:

  • Dance History
  • Ballet/Lyrical
  • Jazz
  • Modern/Contemporary
  • Hip Hop
  • Musical Theater/Tap
  • Performance
  • Choreography
  • Physical Fitness/Nutrition
  • Strength Training

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.

Students will begin dressing out on August 27th.

Dancewear: All students must wear ankle length black pants, (NOT TIGHTS). These are available at Academy, Walmart, Target and various other locations. 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.

Shoes: Dancers may wear jazz shoes, ballet shoes, dance sneakers or they may go barefooted but they are not allowed to wear socks or street shoes/sneakers. The dance shoes need to be nude or beige in color.

Hair: Will be pulled back and off the face and neck.

Jewelry: All dangle earrings, bracelets, and long necklace should be removed. ID badges should be left in your assigned locker as well.

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 that 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.

Please check my webpage for more information about the class. If you have any questions, please contact me at lstoeck@bhisd.net. I know this is going to be a great year!
