Panther Dance is a full year program with fees collected in each term.
Panther Dance is open to ISB Students Pk – Grade 12, Adults and External Students.
We are fortunate to have specialized, experienced instructors come to ISB specifically to teach Panther Dance classes. Because our instructors often have jobs and responsibilities with other studios or organizations, prior communication and organization is required with both our teaching staff and with our students. Also, assessments are conducted with students so that we are able to create classes of similar sizes and levels of dance, and only then can we create the final roster of classes.
The following time frame is a guideline to help ensure dancers’ preferences are met with adequate instructors, classes and scheduling.
1. Dancer Expression of Interest (Dance Styles) Survey:
Early August, Students or parents submit a dance survey indicating their interest in various classes and levels using the CHQ portal. This information will be used to build our advanced dance class schedule. No payment is due at this time. The link to this system is available through your PowerSchool login.
2. Dance Assessments:
After completing the Expression of Interest Dancers participate in the August Assessments which are an important part of placement for both new and returning dancers. Dancers will be asked to copy dance steps with a group of dancers of a similar age. This is not a pass / fail situation. PK and KG and Gr 1 Do Not need Assessments.
3. Dance Registration / Payment:
Dancers and Families may log into their CHQ account and view the class(es) their dancer has been offered. They have the opportunity to accept these classes. Once accepted and viewing period closes they will then be able to pay.
Registration September to January
Classes are formed in August. Subject to space we continue to accept new students September to January. Please email email@example.com.
