  9. Company dancers and parents must pay monthly tuition covering these classes to the studio (SCB) and remain in good standing with tuition payments.

Company requirements

  1. Company dancers and parents must maintain all eligibility requirements as stated above.

  2. Students interested in joining the company must audition in the spring.  Students unable to audition in person but contact us to schedule an alternative audition date or digital audition.

  3. There is a non-refundable* annual fee of $200 (two-hundred dollars) to be paid to the studio (SCB) upon acceptance of participation in the company.  This includes the annual costume fee and covers all participation in performances for the year.  

  4. The Company will organize various events throughout the year that would require additional payment for participating dancers.  These events are not covered by the annual participation fee, and might include things like professional photo packages, or tickets to a ballet performance.

  5. Company dancers may miss one technique class during the week if they need the extra time (e.g. lots of school work) but are expected to still attend all rehearsals, including any rehearsal on the same day of the missed class.

  6. The company schedule is designed to allow Company dancers to participate in MADCo if they desire to be in both student companies, keeping compatible class requirements and avoiding schedule conflicts.  Please keep in mind that the Company asks for a lot of time, about 2-4 hours of time additional to a regular advanced ballet class schedule each week, as outlined in the Eligibility and Requirements, so you may need to decide if you want to do one or the other.  Company will also not conflict with the Nutcracker at the Alberta Bair Theater.

  7. Company dancers and parents must notify the Company a minimum of one week in advance of known absences so we can accommodate.

  8. In order to help prevent burn out, we will have some off days with no regularly scheduled rehearsal and/or shorter rehearsal days, and we will notify Company dancers and parents in advance.

  9. Company dancers must attend at least one SCB Summer Intensive (starting summer 2023).

*Should the dancer be unable to perform for a substantial amount of time and/or must withdraw from the company prior to performing, a $50 costume fee will be refunded to the dancer.
