Team Purpose: Competition teams at Fusion Dance Center are used as a learning tool for dancers

to grow both as artists and as technicians. Our studio focuses on dancers improving in the areas
of performance and technique every time they rehearse or take the stage. We demand that
dancers be completely dedicated in their endeavor to achieve their own personal best. Their
focus, attentiveness, and hard work are expected at every rehearsal and technique class.

Dancers placement will be determined by skill level AND commitment level. Past work ethic, attendance
record, and cooperative efforts will also be taken into consideration. We are striving to create cohesive
groups that will have similar expectations and goals.

Please read the following Team Requirements, keeping in mind that dancers will be held accountable for
fulfilling the requirements of whichever commitment level they determine best fits the goals for their dance

dismissed immediately upon failing to adhere to team attendance policies. As well, dancers may be held offstage if they
do not arrive at competitions by the call time given. All major incidents will be reviewed by studio management and, if
