As LGB continues to grow in size and talent, the Artistic Staff does its best to distribute the roles so that each student is challenged. In order to serve and educate the majority, we try to balance the distribution of roles, taking the following into consideration:
Technical and Artistic abilities
Roles awarded in the past
Conduct in Class & Rehearsal
Attendance in Class & Rehearsal
Age & Grade
CONFLICTS If you have potential conflicts that would prohibit you from attending class, rehearsal or performance, please schedule a meeting with theDirector. Bringing these issues to the Artistic Staff before the audition or registration deadline will allow time to find the best workable solution. We will do our best to support your requests.
INJURIES If you are injured and are unable to dance at the audition, please schedule a meeting before the registration deadline to discuss your eligibility and timeline.
ABSENCES Too many absences from class or rehearsal will affect your eligibility to be casted in specific roles. Please schedule a meeting before the audition or registration deadline to assess your situation. Too many missed classes and/or rehearsals after casting is announced may result in a change in casting.
CASTING & PARTICIPATION We hope that you understand that a great deal of thought and effort are put into the casting process. Participation is important at every level, as it builds focus, endurance and group function at each stage of development. It is an essential part of the dancer's technical and artistic progression.
PRIVATE COACHING Whether working towards specific goals or obtaining general feedback, Private Coaching is a beneficial vehicle to gain important information and insight. The opportunity to have individual attention and focus is a pathway towards improved progression. It is highly recommended that all upper division dancers seek private coaching. This private time provides an opportunity to establish goals in class and performance, as well as work on specific technical and artistic components.
