Studio Withdrawals for Competitions

It is at each teacher’s discretion to pull their piece or remove a student from competing if the teacher and directors feel that the dancer(s) are not ready to perform due to the above requirements not being met.  Our policy is that as fees have been pre-paid by dansko on behalf of each dancer with the premise/expectation that they are able to meet the competition criteria, these fees will not be refunded to the class/dancer by dansko if they fail to meet these requirements.  


Competition Fees

 Fees are pre paid by dansko in November and are non refundable.


Showcase April (TBA)

Oak Bay High school – all competitive students are invited to perform in our showcase.  Depending on how many competitive numbers your child is participating in they may be asked to perform in one or both shows.  This is a great way to get out the first performance jitters and it’s always a fantastic show to watch!!  Tickets and show order information will be emailed out in March.


 Competitions Dates TBA
