**If you miss more than one rehearsal (excused or unexcused), you must schedule a private with Ashley, Hailey or Alex to clean the piece(s) you’re in. If you cannot meet for a makeup private, then you cannot compete in the piece(s). However, you can still attend the convention to take classes.**

**To perform a solo, you have to have scored in the top 10%-15% of scores in your auditions.** **Each company will have a competition piece set for their individual company in their company choreography class. No audition required. (i.e. Junior Company will learn a piece in their Junior Choreography class to compete, etc.)
