I understand that being in the ballet requires that I am committed to the assigned schedule of rehearsals and shows. I will arrive promptly having practiced what was taught in the prior rehearsal and ready to rehearse and learn new choreography. Should the situation arise that I cannot come to a rehearsal, I am aware that I must have my request for dismissal in writing to the director at least three weeks before the conflict. I am also aware that my request for dismissal may not be granted and I may have to forfeit my place in the show should I miss a required rehearsal. I also know tardiness, bad attitudes, and lack of commitment may also result in dismissal. Therefore, as I sign this contract, I have carefully weighed and agree with the requirements involved with this commitment knowing no refunds will be given for any reason.
