Competition Parents Meeting Notes

Competition Parents Meeting Notes
Competition Team Parents Etc.
It is so good to be back in the dance season again. All of the Teams have been working so hard on their first routine for Competition. Almost all of the teams have finished choreography for the first dance and will be starting choreography for the 2nd routine later this month or the beginning of November! I am so excited about how great each of the teams already look! I know this is going to be a great year for us!
This year we have 13 competitions teams. As some of you may know when it comes to competition time Candice, Kristin, and I will be very busy trying to get each team on and off the stages to perform. This is where we need the parents help! Each Team need 2-3 Team Moms to help the team get ready to perform at the competitions. Some of the responsibilities of Team Mom would be to make sure all dancers are present and in correct costume, have all dancers stretching, and run the routines with them before we come to get them. If you are interested in being the Team Mom please sign up in the office.
We are so excited to be competing in the Advanced category this year and I know we will do great!

Competition Fees and Costume Fees
Costume fees are due on or before October 21st
Sweet n Sassy, Pewees, Minis, and Diamonds=$80
All other Competition Teams=$90
This is the total for 2 costumes and does not include tights and shoes

Competition Fees are due on or before December 2nd

Unfortunately the competitions have raised their prices this year, but……at least 3 out of the 5 competitions we are attending this year do not have an entrance fee at the door for families!
Each team will compete 2 dances at 5 different competitions. All Competitions are MANDATORY.
Please plan on traveling to St. George for competition on March 27th. Competitions usually start early in the morning so it is a good idea to plan on spending the night on Friday in or near St. George.

Competitions for 2011

Warm-ups are optional but highly recommended for all competition dancers. Warm-up orders must be in full and paid for by October 18th before I will order them. If you order is not paid for I will wait to put them in with the next order or until they have been paid for.
Jackets w/name =$35
Pants w/name=$35

It is very critical that dancers are at every practice. We learn so much in every class that most dancers feel lost when they come back after missing a week.
