Commitment
The 5 C Dance Company is highly selective and requires complete commitment from dance members. We strive to be the best dance group at the Claremont Colleges and esteem ourselves on our artistic and technical dance skills. Each year we limit our group size to include only the best dancers who share in this commitment. To achieve this level of excellence, I agree to attend all rehearsals and performances. I understand that the integrity of the performance, the time it takes to learn new choreography, and the respect to fellow dancers are compromised every time one person is not present at rehearsals.


The rehearsal and performance schedules will be posted on our website at www.5CDanceCompany.com prior to each semester. I understand that if I miss a rehearsal or performance, I may lose solo pieces or placement in the choreography. I may also be removed from the numbers completely, placed on probation or ultimately removed from the dance team. If removed (expelled) from the team, I will not be allowed to re-audition or become a member of the dance team in the future.

Responsibility
The 5 C Dance Company is run completely by students. Each dance member is required to participate in one or more of the following positions:
Advertising (posting fliers on all 5 campuses prior to each performance):
Advertising (making fliers with poster paint prior to each performance):
Fundraising (baking cookies, muffins, cupcakes the night before each performance):
Fundraising (setting up bake sale at each performance and recruiting volunteers):
Fundraising (organizing and emailing fundraising campaigns): T-Shirt and Jackets (researching costs, setting up logos and personalization):
Performance Location (writing letters, petitioning, and getting auditorium for performances):
Music (making CDs/DVDs for all dancers):
Costumes (researching, shopping, ordering, and purchasing costumes for team):
Costumes (designing costumes with artistic director and choreographers):
Portable Dance Platforms (transporting platforms to and from performance locations - needs car):
Sound System (set up sound system at each venue):
Lighting System (setup lighting system at each venue):
Programs (creating, printing, and assembling programs for showcases):
Programs (passing out programs at each showcase):
