Message from Misty
Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday break! Now its time to work, work, work! We have less than 8 weeks til our first competition. For those of you who it is your first year on Competition, this is when things get crazy busy. It is absolutely critical that the dancers do not miss any practices from here on out. Even with one person missing it is really hard to have a 100% successful practice. It was your choice to let your daughter tryout for the team so please be responsible in making sure that they don’t miss class! If we all work together I know we will be as successful if not more as the past 7 years competing! Thanks you for all of your support!
All of the costumes have been ordered and some have already arrived! I will be sending them home with those who have paid all of their costume, competition, and tuition fees! I will have them try them on during class to make sure they fit like I want them to. Please do not let the dancers play dress up in their costumes for we want them to be in tip top shape for performances. Please put them in a safe place for I will not be able to order another one if you are missing a part of your costume.
I am still missing some costume, competition, and tuition fees. These are all over due! Please pay them immediately or your dancer may be spaced out of their dance and will not be able to compete. Thank you so much to those who have paid on time or have made payment arrangements with me. I really appreciate your responsibility!
Mandatory Dress Rehearsal
Please mark your calendar for these rehearsal dates. It is critical that everybody is there so that we can use the whole dance studio and space the dances as if they were on a stage! Parents may attend if they would like. Parents are encouraged to come for the younger dancers so that they will have help to change their costumes. Dress rehearsal means full costume including hair, make up, tights, shoes etc. Please come in your Jazz costume first.

Here is a reminder of all of the competitions that we will be attending this year as well as the address! Please remember ALL OF THE COMPETITIONS ARE MANDATORY! I will not receive lineups or times until the week before the competition. As soon as I receive them I will post them on the blog ultimatedanceetc.blogspot.com . so please check frequently for last minute updates and information.
Most competitions do charge an admission fee at the door usually $5 or $6, so please be prepared for that.(I know, I think it is absolutely ridiculous as well.) The Thanksgiving point competition this year will have FREE Admission! Yay!
Most solos are on Friday nights and most team dances are on Saturdays. These usually take up the whole day so please keep these specific Saturdays clear from other activities. It is not mandatory to stay for awards, but it is so much fun for the girls. So, if you can attend the awards ceremony please do!
