A-TEAM MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION
Under the leadership of Alisa Marier, Perrysburg Dance Academy's A-Team members are our official ambassadors performing in four local festival parades, The Blade (Toledo) Holiday Parade, an annual BGSU men's basketball halftime show (or alternate venue), and at Walt Disney World once every three years! We are very proud of Miss Alisa and her team of hard-working, dedicated dancers that grace the cover of our spring recital program and open the spring recital each year in grand fashion!
A-Team is perfect for dancers who are excelling in their studio classes, looking for more performance opportunities, and interested in being part of a TEAM (like other teams, we don't spell A-Team with an "I")! Good attendance and work ethic, a friendly personality, and a love of dance are qualities we look for in our A-Team members!
2019-2020 A-Team Requirements & Financial Obligations
To join A-Team, dancers must be 8 years old or entering the 3rd grade, taking at least beginner level classes and in good standing with our financial office. Aside from their Saturday morning A-Team rehearsals (10-11: 30 am), each registered student must take also take two technique classes per week: Ballet and Jazz, or Jazz and Musical Theater.
The A-Team class tuition is $60.00 per month (no discounts apply). There is an annual non-refundable registration fee of $60.00 per A-Team member to cover the cost of instructors' and assistant fees for extra rehearsals (there are only a few), local parades and performances. This fee is to be paid at the time of registration. (This fee does not include any events that require instructor(s) overnight or extensive travel stays such as Disney World.)
Every three years our A-Team travels to Florida to perform at Walt Disney World! In 2020, this exciting team event will place our dancers (ages 10+) in the middle of the most magical place on earth as they parade down Main Street USA at the Magic Kingdom! Our youngest team members will participate in a similar event at another exciting location in Walt Disney World! Team members and their accompanying family members will stay in the Magic at Disney's POP Century Resort, play in the Magic at the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks, and they will be part of the Magic as we team up with "Dance the Magic" for this very special opportunity!
A-Team is not just another class. Like any other team sport or activity, there are extra costs involved. These costs include team apparel (spiritwear), parade/event costumes and/or accessories, a costume for our annual recital, shoes, tights, and personal items such as undergarments and makeup. Your dancer will also want to purchase an occasional small gift for their "Big" or "Little" Sis or Bro to show their love and support!
