Those that are 12 years and older must also be prepared to possibly practice themselves, as well as put themselves on stage in the event that an instructor can not be there. ​Note: it will not always be the choreographer who puts solo's/duets/trios on stage as another teacher or parent may be assigned.

Video taping on a personal device of the choreography will be a requirement of the student/parent at the end of lessons when the choreographer asks.
