Etiquette and Education
CYBC is not just about the dancing experience. We aim to inspire and educate good behaviors, attitudes and team work. Every student matters and will have their 'moment' in the production.
To assist us with the environment we aim to achieve, we ask that all students attend with a high standard of grooming to all rehearsals. Any classical leotard must be worn with tights, pink shoes and slick classical hairstyle. Warm up wear, a notebook and a water bottle/ healthy snacks need to be packed in their bag for each session. Students may wish to bring a towel for floor barre.
