5. Are there any additional rehearsals?

We do our best to avoid any unnecessary rehearsals. However in order to best prepare our teams ahead of any competitions and events, some rehearsals are very much needed. These additional rehearsals will be compulsory, therefore all members must attend.

Parents/ Legal guardians are responsible in booking any accommodation and travel. Extreme Dance London will provide suggestions ahead of time.

Parents will receive a order form at the beginning of the term. It is the members and parents responsibility to make sure their attire is in good condition.

Each Youth Company learns a minimum of two routines and are expected to perform both routines at our compulsory events. 

10. What if a member is not complying to all the Youth Company requirements?

Each member is responsible to maintain a high standard of technique and training. If a member does not comply with our Youth Company requirements due to other scheduling conflicts they cannot change, ie. religious studies or academic studies, they will need to arrange regular private lessons to stay on the same page as the rest of the team. If the circumstance has a minor but obvious effect on the team, the Director may review the commitment level with the member and parent to find a workable solution. If the circumstances remain unchanged and is jeopardising the team, the member may be placed on preliminary or dismissed from Team XDL and will be asked to re-audition at a later date.
