Student dependability goes along closely with the above segment. Teachers, Coordinators, and Artistic teams will give feedback as to how reliable students have been in classes and at rehearsals. This area includes attendance at classes, showcases, and rehearsals. Full attendance in class and rehearsals is required and will be highly taken into consideration at casting. Although there is a CYT policy that allows for 2 excused absences from rehearsals and one excused absence for classes this does not mean students should shoot to miss two rehearsals or any classes. Students that have NO absences will be considered more desirable when casting roles. If students miss any class period without advanced notification given to the teacher and coordinator (sickness is an exception) will be considered unexcused and they may be removed from the showcase and this will affect future casting considerations.
Each students’ commitment to the rehearsal process for classes, showcase and production will be considered by the Casting Team. By consistently and diligently working on and perfecting their lines, dances and songs at home, students will show reliability to their Teachers, Coordinators, and Artistic Team and will increase their chances of being part of the cast.
