I'm glad that you have found the way to our Dance Studio and Class Forum!
Dance Academy: Ballet is a One-Term Class in which we are going to learn some important dance technique as well as some of the most beloved ballet stories!! Excited?? Yes!! Go ahead, start warming up and get ready to dance!!
As you already know, here at the Dance Studio some discussions and/or extra credit will be held. Also, I will keep track of your homework submissions, and other stuff related to the class. Please treat your classmates, teacher, and class assistant nicely and respectfully. That way we won't have any problems and we will enjoy our time here much more!
While taking Dance Academy: Ballet, please remember:
This class gives you the opportunity to earn up to 300 points the following way:
* 4 Assignments (30 points each) = 120 points
* 4 Extra Credits (30 points each) = 120 points
* Final Exam = 30 points
* Class Project = 30 points
Total = 300 points
However, to pass this class and earn a Quill you only need to earn 180 points, I repeat 180 points (150 points will not make it!), and some portion of those points should come from the Final Exam, which means that the exam is a MUST.
The Class is divided in four different lessons, following the next schedule:
* Month 1: The Red Shoes
* Month 2: Swan Lake
* Month 3: Billy Elliot
* Month 4: The Nutcracker
Despite having a monthly design, you are free to turn in all of your work by the end of term, specifcally by Januay 14th, 2018. So you can work and dance at your very own rythm!!!
Send your HW and EC in the same e-mail, just label it correctly including the following: Number of Homework - HOL ID - House. Example: HW 1 - pr_gus - Ravenclaw.
Class e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Dance Academy: Ballet also gives you the opportunity to earn up to 4 special awards!!! However it is your job to find out how to earn them! I can only tell you that if you work hard and remain active in the class, by the end of term you will surely find more than one added to your Treasures!
Finally, if you have any question, petition, suggestion or anything else, I ask you to post it in our class forum or send it to me through a HOL message (My HOL ID is pr_gus). Please do not send it to the class e-mail because chances are I won't see it on time. I only check the class e-mail in a weekly/monthly basis so if it is something urgent it will probably be too late by the time I see it.
My class assistan is KENDRA GIVENS, so you can write to her as well in case you need anything! She will happily aid you in whatever you need!
I believe this is all for now! Thanks for your attention and for choosing this class!
Wishing you a terrific term!! I'm sure we'll have a great time!! Now....Let's dance!!!!
