Femme Fatale teaches women that they are beautiful, it’s as simple as that. We teach empowerment through movement and work towards performing for ourselves on and off stage. We want our students to feel confident and learn how to exude that in all aspects of life.
**EACH DANCER IS REQUIRED TO HAVE READ HER OWN CONTRACT. THIS CONTRACT IS VALID THROUGH TO JANUARY 13, 2018. YOU MAY OPT OUT OF THIS CONTRACT AT ANY TIME, HOWEVER THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS. PERFORMING IN THE “CINEMA” SHOW IS SUBJECT TO THE POLICIES OUTLINED IN THIS CONTRACT**
There will be a photo shoot on Sunday October 22, 2017. We will have a group photo shoot, solo shots are optional for a $25 cash fee and will start at 3:00 pm. Group shots will be scheduled closer to the date; all group photos will be used as promotional material. If you would not like your solo shot shared on social media you need to inform Tina when the photo shoot takes place. These photos are always a beautiful keepsake or make a great gift to your significant other.
I understand that this contract is valid for Femme Fatale Dancers only.
I understand that the fees involved with Femme Fatale Burlesque dance troupe are $290+GST for the 16 week session.
I may pay in full before the first week of regular classes commence; or I may use a payment plan option of two payments of $145+GST each ($152.25). The first will be due on the week of September 11, 2017 and the second will be due on October 31, 2017.
I understand that I am responsible for complying with the fee deadlines outlined in this contract.
If I don’t pay on time I will not be allowed to attend further classes until debt has been paid.
I understand that I am responsible for attending all regular classes. If more than 2 regular classes are missed, then I will be reconsidered for the Showcase in January 2018. Either I will be removed from that number, or I may be removed from the show entirely, depending on the number of classes missed and the discretion of my instructor.
You must conduct yourself in a pleasant manner at all rehearsals and any Femme events. Bullying or cattiness will not be tolerated. We are here to empower one another and build each other up, not tear each other down. We are not in competition with anyone but ourselves.
You are welcome to come and use Oranj Fitness for any extra rehearsal that you and/or your group needs, this however is based on studio availability. You must book your studio time with Tina ahead of time, to prevent multiple people/groups trying to use the studio space at the same time. Please note that you must clean up after yourself and be mindful of what else is going on in the studio, often there is yoga that we need to be quiet for.
I will be required to attend 3 of the mandatory Extra Rehearsals:
Sunday, November 12 2017 – 1:30pm - 5:30pm – Times are subject to change - Oranj Fitness
Sunday, November 26, 2017 - 1:30pm - 5:30pm - Times are subject to change - Oranj Fitness
The third rehearsal will be coordinated with your instructor between October and January
In the week leading up to the Showcase (January 7-10), there will be 2 mandatory rehearsals that I MUST attend. If I am not at the blocking rehearsal and the dress rehearsal, I will not go on stage on January 11th & 12th, 2018.
The rehearsals will be as follows:
Sunday, Jan 7 - 1:00 - 6:00 - Level 1, 2’s, and 5 - Blocking Rehearsal

We want you to look your absolute best on stage, so extra practice is necessary.
I will be responsible for purchasing and sourcing my own costumes.
Most costumes will be of your own choosing of black, with another color. This will be discussed in class with your instructor. This session specifically, we will have more “character like” costumes, please utilize November 1st, the day after Halloween to get to the Halloween stores and buy your costumes.
We want you to feel your best on stage, it is essential that you are purchasing items that you feel comfortable in.
Femme Fatale may opt to provide costumes from current inventory, but this is not guaranteed.
You will need to purchase your own high heeled shoes. When you are purchasing shoes keep the following in mind:
You MUST be able to walk & dance in them confidently.
They should be minimum of 2” and maximum of 4”.
They should support your foot. You need to either have a strap over the top of the foot, or a boot. Slip on shoes will not be permitted on stage.

You must have an outfit to wear that is not your costume before and after the show when you are out in the crowd mingling.
Tickets will be available for purchase 6 weeks before the show.
