PURPOSE

 

Dancers are student leaders who exemplify and promote school spirit, pride, and sportsmanship. Dancers enhance a positive school climate by exhibiting leadership skills, such as respect for individual differences, building consensus, academic excellence, and modeling appropriate behaviors at all times, both in and away from school.

 

Dancers are expected to be mentally and physically fit and athletically skilled in the field of dancing. They are first and foremost representatives of their school. Because of these responsibilities, members of the dance team will be expected to maintain a high standard of behavior both on and off campus. In or out of uniform, dancers are representatives of the dance team and the school.

 

As leaders, dancers are expected to set good examples and demonstrate high moral standards for other students. Respect for the school, other members of the team, and the sponsor and his/her authority will be maintained at all times.

 

DANCE SEASON

 

The rules and procedures outlined in these guidelines are in effect from the time the student is selected to the dance team until the next tryout date. This does not include the academic guidelines. Because of Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) rules, the academic policies are in effect for a school year.

 

NSAA & LVHS

 

It is the practice of Logan View Public Schools to utilize the Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA) and Logan View High School guidelines to regulate and govern the dance program with regard to no pass/no play, eight-hour practice limitations and all other applicable regulations. The dance program will follow the eligibility requirements as outlined by the NSAA and LVHS.

 

TRYOUT – ELIGIBILITY & REQUIREMENTS

 
    • A student must be enrolled in Logan View Public Schools and be in attendance by the first day of the second semester. Principal has discretion to determine participation for students new to district.

    • A student must have a cumulative GPA of 80 or better as of the preceding semester.

    • A student must meet state guidelines for compulsory attendance.

    • A student must have no outstanding balance for prior year financial obligations.

    • A student must have never received deferred adjudication and/or a conviction for a Class B misdemeanor or higher-class crime conviction.

    • Students who have been expelled or sent to discipline school on mandatory placements during the current school year are ineligible to tryout.

    • A student may not be eligible if he/she has resigned or been dismissed from the dance team in the previous year. However, if he/she resigns due to circumstances out of his/her control, the sponsor and activities director will determine whether he/she may be considered for tryouts the following year.

 

COMMITMENT

 

Candidates selected to be a member of the dance team are expected to make a commitment to the activity for the full dance season. Any dancer who voluntarily quits the team before the end of the dance season without the approval of the principal and sponsor may not be allowed to tryout for the next year.

 

TRYOUT GUIDELINES

 

Procedures for dancer selection are based on the guidelines in this handbook. The school will be responsible for facilitating the tryouts for their campus. Parents will not be allowed in the building during any phase of the tryouts.

 

Each sponsor will be responsible for the preparation and distribution of a packet of information to be made available to all candidates. This information will include tryout dates, times, attire, and procedures. The activities director will approve this information prior to distribution.

 

Candidates must attend an orientation meeting scheduled by the dance sponsor. Candidates must have no outstanding financial obligations from the prior year. All dance candidates must attend a clinic prior to tryouts.

 

Candidates and parents must sign a form stating that they understand and will comply with all information in the packet and in this handbook prior to the student being allowed to participate in the tryout process. The following forms must be signed and turned in to sponsor prior to tryouts:

 
  • Dance Handbook Parent/Student Acknowledgement

  • Medical Release Form

  • Inherent Risk Form

  • Parental Release Form

 

SQUAD MAKEUP

 

The varsity team will be made up of up to 12 members as determined by a natural break in the scores.

 

JUDGES

 

Judges will be selected from NDA, UDA, and/or other professional dance associations, universities, and/or out-of-district sponsors. Judges should not be hired if they have tutored or taught the dance candidates during the current school year. It is best practices to hire judges who have not worked with students in the Logan View area; however, with our tight knit community, it may be possible at some time that a member of the judging panel may have had some contact with a candidate.

 

CLOSED TRYOUTS

 

Tryouts are closed to everyone except judges, principals, sponsors, tabulators, and sponsor’s designees. There will be no students, parents, or existing dancers in the tryout areas, nor will they be involved in the collection or tabulation of scores. No parents are allowed in the school building during tryouts. Students and sponsors may not utilize electronic devices or texting during tryouts. Any deviation from the tryout requirements by the candidates may result in the disqualification of the candidate.

Any student who arrives at the tryout site after tryouts have started will not be allowed to try out.

 

JUDGING GUIDELINES

 

The following guidelines determine membership for the dance team beginning in grade 8: Performance (60%); Academics and Citizenship (40%)

 

Routine

Appearance 10 points

(Neatness, posture, grooming, general appeal)

Memory 10 points

(ability to memorize choreography)

Beat/Rhythm 10 points

(Ability to feel and stay with the beat of the music)

Dance Skills 10 points

Technical Skills

Citizenship and Academics

 

The citizenship and academic evaluation represents 40% of the candidate’s total score. Points for this category will include Teacher Recommendation scores.

 

TABULATION OF SCORES

 

Tabulation of scores will be conducted by the sponsors. For each high school candidate this will be an average of the judge’s scores.

 

Scores will be kept in the office of the sponsors until winners and non-winners are notified. Candidate’s original scoring sheets will be retained for 30 days following the tryout date.

 

INJURY & USE OF VIDEO

 

A candidate for the dance team may show a video of his/her performance for the judges only if he/she is incapable of required physical activity. Sponsors must receive a doctor’s note the day after the injury or the first day of the clinic and must state the reason(s) for the inability to tryout. The medical doctor’s note must indicate the specific skill the student is incapable of performing as well as any limitations associated with the injury. The video to be shown must be approved by the sponsor and should be no more than three to six months old. The final determination of eligibility to tryout using a video will be at the sponsor’s discretion. The video will be judged using the same criteria as outlined in this section.

 

FINAL DETERMINATION & NOTIFICATION

 

The sponsors will tabulate scores and calculate to the nearest one-hundredth. In the event of a tie, the judges’ scores on motions will determine the winner. Candidates will receive notification of results on the day of tryouts. The notification message will only identify the selected candidates based on assigned tryout numbers. No candidate’s name, rank, or score will be included in the notification.

 

Candidates who did not make the team may request their scores through the school activities director and dance sponsor. By law, all other student scores are protected and cannot be shared. Rank scores will not be shared. Original judges’ score sheets will not be released to parents or students. All records and scores will be purged prior to the next year’s tryouts.

 

DANCE ACTIVITIES

 

All dancers will have a scheduled practice time to allow for planning and practice. Dance practices and performances are under the umbrella of NSAA time limit restrictions. Special practices may be called by the sponsor when necessary. However, due to NSAA procedures, the eight-hour limit will apply to practice held outside of the school day.

 

Football—All home games, with sponsor’s discretion on play-off games.

 

Basketball—All home games, with sponsor’s discretion on play-off games.

 

Wrestling-- All home meets.

 

Camps/Clinics—Dance camp held in June, July, or August. (Camp/clinic instruction is an integral part of program quality; attendance is required.)

 

Participation in other sports events, community activities, and social occasions will be at the discretion of the sponsor.

 

Students must be present the last half of the school day to participate in an activity.

 

Dancers may not leave a practice, class, or any other activity at any time unless approved by the sponsor.

 
  • Any absence must have the prior approval of the sponsor.

  • Prior notification of conflicts with school activities will be addressed with the sponsors and, when appropriate, the activities director.

FUNDRAISING

 

A thorough description of appropriate practices and procedures for fundraising is outlined within the document, LVHS Activities Handbook. Individuals directly responsible for fundraising should refer to the document and District policy for complete directions. The following is important information for all members and parents:

 
  • Each dancer shall participate in fundraising activities.

  • Fundraising activities must support the educational goals of the District.

  • Fundraising will be coordinated by the sponsor, and/or Booster Club officers, approved by the activities director, and must include a written request outlining the need for funding, the type of fundraising activity, the projected amount to be raised, how the money will be used, and the time and duration of the activity.

All discipline actions will affect the dancer’s standing on his/her team after tryouts and throughout the following academic year. Any member failing to abide by rules and regulations as set forth under the provisions may be subject to review by the sponsor and activities director. Dismissal from the group may result from that review.

 

The guidelines for student discipline are outlined in the Student Code of Conduct adopted by the Logan View Public Schools. Additional standards of behavior for students involved in extracurricular activities are:

EXTRACURRICULAR STANDARDS OF BEHAVIOR

 

Student participation in extracurricular activities is encouraged. Logan View High School makes extracurricular activities available as an extension of the regular school program, with an important difference: participation in the regular curriculum is a right afforded to each student, while participation in the extracurricular program is a privilege that carries additional expectations for acceptable conduct. Students who engage in extracurricular activities represent not only themselves but also other students and the District when performing, competing, or participating in extracurricular activities and while wearing uniforms or other clothing that identifies the student to the community or public in any setting as a Logan View student. Behavior must be exemplary and reflect the finest attributes of the Logan View student body at all times and in all places.

 

Important goals of the extracurricular program are to give students direction in developing self-discipline, responsibility, pride, loyalty, leadership, teamwork, respect for authority, and healthy living habits.

 

Since participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege and not a right, Logan View is authorized to set higher standards for participants of extracurricular activities than for students who choose not to participate in extracurricular activities. The expectations for extracurricular activities extend beyond the Logan View Student Code of Conduct, not only in types of behavior prohibited, but also in corresponding consequences and jurisdiction for imposing discipline. Extracurricular expectations apply to all students participating in extracurricular activities, regardless of whether:

  • School is in session;

  • The offense occurs on or off school property or at a school-related event;

  • The student is directly involved with the extracurricular activity at the time the prohibited conduct occurs; The extracurricular activity is in-season; and

  • Regardless of where or when the conduct occurs.

 

It is possible that a student who violates the Logan View Student Code of Conduct will incur consequences from both the appropriate school administrator and from his or her coach or sponsor for the same particular violation. It is also possible that a student participating in extracurricular activities may violate the Extracurricular Standards and be subject to discipline or sanctions by a coach or sponsor without having violated the Logan View Student Code of Conduct.

 

GENERAL CONDUCT RULES

 

Coaches, administrators, and sponsors will review all facts and circumstances surrounding a particular event and determine appropriate disciplinary action or sanctions.

1st offense – Parent/student/sponsor/administrator conference to discuss the event and sanctions.

2nd offense – Parent/student/sponsor/administrator conference to discuss the event, sanctions, and possible dismissal.

3rd offense – Parent/student/sponsor/administrator conference to discuss the event, sanctions, and dismissal.

Any event may be serious enough to result in removal from the extracurricular activity at any step. Dismissal will be determined by the parent/student/sponsor conference on the second and third offense. Sanctions may include, but are not limited to: physical activity, bench time, and loss of playing or performance opportunities. Nothing in the Activities Handbook limits the authority of a sponsor to impose reasonable sanctions for students who breach program conduct expectations that are not Student Code of Conduct breaches. Signing the

Dance Handbook Parent/Student Acknowledgement is receipt and agreement to the expectations outlined in the Extracurricular Standards of Behavior. Decisions of the sponsor and activities director are final.




 

PERMANENT DISMISSAL

Reasons for permanent dismissal from the dance team include but are not limited to:

 
  • Academic Removal – If academically ineligible for three reporting periods, consecutive or nonconsecutive, removal for the remainder of the year

  • Unexcused absence from more than two performances over the course of the dance season.

  • Failure to meet behavior expectations in the Extracurricular Standards of Behavior Expulsion

  • Not completing financial obligations by the last day of the first semester.

 

Prior to being dismissed, the student and parent will be notified of the reason for the action. Student and parent will be afforded the opportunity of a hearing with the sponsor and activities director. Appeals must be submitted in writing to the building activities director within five school days. The student will not be eligible for any individual or team recognitions or awards that occur after the date of dismissal.

 

COMPETITIONS

 

Whether to have a team that enters competition is a decision to be made by the administration and sponsors. This activity will not interfere with the regularly scheduled activities of the dancers.

 

INCLEMENT WEATHER

 

In the event of inclement weather, it will be the responsibility of the sponsors, in collaboration with the activities director, to make the decision to leave the event.

 

TRANSPORTATION

 

Each dancer shall ride school-provided transportation to and from out-of-town games. A phone call request from the parent/guardian is required for the student to be released to the parent. 48 hour prior approval from the sponsor is required. The penalty for missing school-provided transportation is suspension from that night’s performance and the following performance.

 

If the dancers meet at the campus prior to going to the stadium/event, then school-provided transportation must be utilized. If the dancers meet initially at the stadium/event, then students may utilize their own means of transportation to the event.

 

FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES

 

The Logan View Dance Team may provide specialty uniform pieces and will provide summer camp fees. Additional uniform pieces, camp uniforms, clothing items, bags, sweaters, and practice attire are purchased by the parent/dancer and must be approved by the sponsors and student handbook regulations prior to purchase.

50% of uniform costs are due at time of uniform fitting. The other 50% is due before the uniform ordered, May 1st.

Inherent Risk Form

LOGAN VIEW HIGH SCHOOL

Raider.jpg

Inherent Risks of Dancing

 

Dancing is reasonably safe as long as certain guidelines are followed, but there is the inherent risk of injury as in any athletic activity. Dancing is an anaerobic/aerobic activity that includes jumping, motions, and tumbling. All physicals must be on file in the school office before you may participate in practices and games. Keep your coach informed of all injuries and/or chronic conditions.

 

Although the probability of injury is minimized if you practice correctly, there is always the possibility of one occurring. Injuries that can occur in cheerleading include, but are not limited to, the following: blisters, muscle strains, joint and muscle soreness, abrasions, contusions, stress fractures, broken bones, spinal cord injuries involving paralysis, and even death. However, if you take certain precautions, the possibility of such injuries will be largely decreased.

 

Dancers should consistently abide by the following guidelines:

 
  1. Never tumble unless a coach or coach’s designee is present.

  2. Always practice in the presence of a qualified coach

  3. Always warm-up appropriately before dancing (practice and games) by jogging and stretching.

  4. Do not attempt a stunt that you do not know how to perform safely and that has not been checked off by the coach.

  5. Always dance in an area free from obstruction.

  6. Report all injuries to the coach as soon as they occur.

  7. Follow all trainer and doctor recommendations.

  8. Lift weights to increase strength and guard against injuries.

  9. Always wear shoes and clothing appropriate for dancing

  10. Never wear jewelry of any kind or chew gum when dancing (practice and games).

  11. Eat nutritious meals and get plenty of rest.

  12. Ask for assistance or advice at any time.

 

I have read the preceding warning and thoroughly appreciate and understand the assumption of risks inherent in dance participation. I acknowledge that I am physically fit and that I am voluntarily participating in this activity.
