Heading into Competition Season!

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! :)
