Dayton Leadership Academies

A School Culture of Pride and Excellence

Dance Team


Dancing for fun and dancing for an audience are two very different things. All girls are welcome to dance practice to participate. Not all participants will perform. Many girls are new to dance team and will benefit and learn from practicing, but their skills may not be ready for performance yet. Just like a basketball coach decides which players go out into the game and which support the team from the bench, Mrs. Myers & Student Coach will determine weekly which dancers are ready to perform at the game. Parents, you will be notified if your child has been selected to perform.


Attached is our schedule for December. It is important that you review dates.A team only works if every member is dedicating to being present and practicing hard! It is also important to note that our girls are now student athletes; this means that they are students first and athletes second.


In order to participate in practices and perform in games students must maintain a 2.2 gpa. This means As, Bs, and Cs in all classes. NO Ds or Fs. Teachers will submit progress reports to coaches weekly and if a student’s grades are not in good standing they will be suspended from any practices or performances until their grades are up. Similarly, students must be in good standing with their behavior.


Getting a write-up will suspend a student from that week’s practices and performances. If a student is suspended they will be removed from the team. Our girls are leaders in every way and our expectations for them will remain high!

2 missed practices or late pick-ups will result in being dismissed from the team.


We are excited to begin our season! The best way to support our girls is to be present- keep up with the schedule and be there to watch them shine in their performances! :)
