As we head into comp season, here are some updates and reminders...
DIVA: weekend of 2/4, Danvers
GROOVE: weekend of 3/11, Andover
HEADLINERS: weekend of 4/8, Derry NH
JUMP (only some solos and duos): weekend of 5/12, Providence RI
ROUTINE DETAILS: routine details can be found on this Google sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15qLZY_8nBiSnRuCbsu6ucKEOaY90qD0PE4J4uPylvlE/edit?usp=sharing
I have also added a button on the competition team page that will link you directly to this sheet. Please review the sheet at your earliest convenience so that you are prepared!
Schedules are released 1-2 weeks ahead of the event. When I receive the schedule, I will make sure you receive it as well
Be sure you have your competition lipstick (in case we can go without masks!)
If you do not have competition earrings, you can purchase them from me for $10
Required tights, if needed for your dancer's routines, are detailed in the Handbook
In the event we need to wear masks, I will purchase them for everyone so that the look is uniform
Costumes are coming home as we receive them; shipping and supply chain is an absolute nightmare. Some routines will be wearing backup costumes for Diva.
Review the competition essentials list created by Kelly Pitcher to be sure you are prepared: Competition Essentials (danceelevate.com)
Please review the makeup tutorial and attend the bun workshop on 1/23 if you are wary of your bun-making skills! Remember, we receive a score for hair and makeup.
The showcase scheduled for Sunday 1/30 at 3 p.m. is currently being held at the studio. I am actively looking for a location to host the event so that parents can watch and so that we have a larger area to utilize. If I am able to secure a venue I will let you know and send further details. Until then, you can plan on an in-house showcase for the dancers and teachers, with Nest camera access for parents. The purpose of the showcase is primarily as a dress rehearsal and final opportunity to critique routines before they hit the stage at Diva.
Stay healthy, everyone! We have an exciting few months ahead! :)
