The culmination of everything you learn in Chorus, Acting, Advanced Drama and/or Musical Theatre will be in performances. As such, each day in class will be approached as a rehearsal. You are now a member of a cast and, as of the first day of class, we are currently in production, so your daily behavior and participation should reflect this.
1. Be respectful at all times. This means NO negativity!
2. Be on time and prepared for class with your music and pencil.
3. No food, drinks, or gum in class. Water bottles are the only exception.
4. Cell phones are not permitted in class or rehearsal unless given permission by the teacher.
For each violation of the above class rules (including the rules in the DHS student handbook), the student(s) in question will be expected to adhere to the policies set forth below.

We have very high expectations of each of our students. The most important of all is a POSITIVE AND HELPFUL ATTITUDE. At no time will disrespectful or hurtful words or actions be tolerated in our classrooms. In order to be successful, we must work together as a unified group of singers or as a team. We expect everyone to come to class focused and prepared to work.
