G-PODS (GREAT PARENTS OF DANCERS)
Dance requires time commitment as well as financial commitment. Competitive dance opens up a world of art, expression, life skills, and discipline.... as well as your wallets. We understand that the financial commitments associated with the competitive dancer can be overwhelming at times. We believe that behind every great dancer is a great dance parent that sacrifices to give the gift of dance to their child or children.
G-Force Dance Legacy has developed a fundraising organization open to all parents of Company dancers, G-PODS, to help with the financial obligations and commitments associate with being a part of a competitive dance Company.
G-PODS (Great Parents of Dancers) is an organization that allows you to choose what fundraising options you would like to participate in to help lessen or completely cover the costs of dance!!! Both group and independent fundraising options are available to you. Now, you can have the option to help make the personal expense of your child's competitive dance training be more affordable without choosing between your wallet and the incredible gift of dance.
Registration takes place at the first Team meeting, which is held two days after auditions. All Company Dancers MUST enroll in all required team classes. There is a student registration fee of $35 for the first student and $10 for each additional student.
