Hello, and welcome to the KHS dance web page.  We are off to a great start for the 2000-2001 school year!  Students are busy learning routines which will be showcased in our annual dance show February 8, 2001 at 7pm in the auditorium.  The grade percentages in class are as follows:  Dance Evaluations/ Other tests= 50%,  Weekly grades= 25%,  Notebook= 25%.  These percentages therefore make up a total of 100% possible.  There is a notebook due (with items explained on an upcoming assignments board outside the dance office) every Tuesday prior to the end of each 3 week and 6 week grading period.  Dance Evaluations over the technique and memory of learned routines are always on Thursdays and Fridays before the end of 3 weeks and 6 weeks grading periods.  Written tests are always announced well in advance and posted on the Agendas outside the dance office well in advance.  Weekly grades are based on daily participation and dressing out in the required black leotard and jazz pants.  Sometimes with 204 students taking Dance I, II, III, and IV things get hectic, so feel free to call KHS at extention 229 and leave a message.  Of course the best way to encourage a student is to ask them to perform for you at home!
