LYB Rules and Regulations
Dancers are expected to attend the weekly classes, as well as all activities scheduled by the LYB.
In the case of absence, dancers should notify the LYB via email. Dancers are allowed 5 non-dance or injury-related absences per academic year, and anything above that will result in their removal from the company. In such a case, the dancer will be able to re-audition, without any bias towards or against them.
Dancers are responsible for their own warm-up and should arrive for class ahead of time.
A uniform will be provided by the LYB for all dancers, and it must be worn in every class, seminar, and other activity, unless clearly stated.
We expect all dancers to conduct themselves with the utmost respect to their teachers and the space they are in. This means communicating directly with their teacher for any concerns and dispose of any rubbish thus the premises as they found it
Dancers are split into 2-3 groups, which are evaluated twice a year. Individual reports are given to each dancer throughout the year, to help them identify specific weaknesses they need to address in their technique and performance.
The criteria for evaluation are as follows:
Absences and dress code
Quality of performance
Improvement of the technique
Physical tone and form
Dancers need to pay a yearly fee by the 30th of October every year. Members who join at a later time will have to pay the fee at the first class they attend.
The dancers of the Lefkosia Youth Ballet vote every year for their own (student) representative to the Committee. If dancers have any concerns and/or requests, the student representative will bring them to the attention of the members of the Committee for discussion.
