You will need to sign off as a witness to their practice time. This practice time has to be accomplished by the end of each week. It will be double checked to make sure they have a signature and our teachers will sign off on this time as well. Please feel free to use these journals as inspiration as well. They are welcome to cut out and glue pictures of their favorite dancers on the cover, or anything else that may inspire them to grow as a dancer.
