It has been the groups dream for many years to expand Phoenix and welcome in younger members. We started this process off by lowering our Eagles age from 14 to 13. Phoenix is one big family, that is always growing! Several of our leaders have now got their own children who are coming up to an age where they’re showing an interest in being on the stage. This is where the chicks were born!
For health and safety reasons, we require our members to abide to a strict dress code. This also helps to provide the company with an identity. The dress code is as follows:
- Black jogging bottoms/tracksuit bottoms/dance pants/leggings/shorts
- Black t-shirt/polo shirt
- Black trainers/pumps/jazz shoes
We offer Phoenix Performers branded uniform which is available to purchase at any of our sessions or through our website.
Branded Uniform we offer:
- Zoodies (hoodies with zips)
Our uniform/merchandise range is always growing – so keep your eyes peeled!
We also require:
- Long hair to be tied back
- No Jewellery (stud ear-rings are allowed)
- Suitable and supportive underwear to be worn
For shows, girls will be required to wear a leotard.
Our chicks group is designed to help children grow in confidence whilst having loads of fun! Our chicks will also make new, life-long friends.
MEMBERSHIP AND FEES
The Phoenix Performers are a non-for-profit organisation. This means that we aren’t in it to make money. However, we have to pay for rent, insurance and venue hire (amongst other overheads). For this reason, we have to charge for our sessions.
Each session is charged at £2 per session.
We do not request payment for missed sessions. If you have to leave a session early or arrive late, you still have to pay the full session charge of £2. Session fees must be paid in full before they start.
We also require members to pay an annual membership fee of £20. This is to cover the cost of insurance for the member.
If you have any issues with paying session fees (subs) or membership, please speak to a leader. We are more than happy to set up a payment plan. We understand that sometimes it can be hard to pay for subs or membership – so if you have any issues please get in touch.
All subs and membership fees are non-refundable. If membership is due prior to a show, it must be paid in full, or a payment plan set up before opening night of the show. If membership has not been paid you will not be allowed to be in the show. Once again, if you have any issues please speak to a leader.
We do not ask members to pay for their costumes for shows. We may occasionally ask for a contribution towards it. We may also occasionally ask members to provide themselves with a costume, but this will normally be something that you already have.
We accept cash, card, BACCs and cheque payments. Please speak to a leader if you wish to pay by BACCs or cheque.
