Competition & Performing Line Updates!

Hello parents,

I hope you enjoyed this lovely weekend!

Innovate Dance Event - 2/1-3 - Innovate is a wonderful weekend of dance that our Performing Line Angels and Lightning, in addition to all of our competition teams (with the exception of Sunbeams) will be participating in with their groups on either Saturday, 2/2 or Sunday, 2/3. Friday night 2/1 is an optional solo/duet/trio night that your dancer may participate in. They will have the opportunity to perform their piece for evaluation by 2 adjudicators, and one of the adjudicators will meet them backstage to give them face to face feedback about their dance. They will also get to take 2 fun master classes! Cost is $75 and this will be billed in January. We have limited space for this event. Sign up HERE if you are interested.

Musical Theater class/Acro- In addition to our Acro BOGO deal ($20/month!), we are now offering a special to our competition and performing line students to join our Musical Theater and Acting class for $20/month! Learn acting skills, musical theater dances, and more! Email me if you are interested.

Curtains on viewing windows - To ensure we have the full concentration of our students, we will only have the curtains open during the LAST WEEK of each month. 

Refrigerator? - Does anyone have a mini refrigerator they want to get rid of? If so let me know!

Optional competitions -this year we will be offering 2 optional competitions for solos/duets/trios. Act 1 - 3/15-17 in Hopkins, and Eclipse - 4/12-14 at the Convention Center. We will get a google form out soon if you are interested.

Dress code clarification - Dress code clarification for Sundays. We will ALWAYS start Sunday practice with ballet for 75-90 minutes, so ballet attire is required. We will end with Production, so if dancers want to throw a tank top on they may during this part of the night.

Movie day - 10/6 at Lakes 5 - We will be celebrating our 2019 recital theme with a special Movie Day on 10/6 at 3PM! We will be showing "The Greatest Showman" at the Lakes 5 theater. Cost is $6/person, and families are welcome! Sign up info coming soon!

Competition/Performing Line Class schedule - HERE is a fall class schedule per group.

If your child will be absent- Reminder - Please notify THE FRONT DESK at dancefactorydesk@gmail.com, or call the studio 651-464-6394 preferably by 4PM. 

Routine Cleaning weekend- very important! Click here for schedule.

Routine cleaning weekend is a MANDATORY 3 hour weekend rehearsal on either Friday, 11/9  or Saturday, 11/10. Dancers will go through their 3 main routines (tap, jazz, lyrical) and teachers will review choreography and clean certain parts of the routines. We started doing this last year and we feel it really helped our dances look better come competition season.

Shoes for Hip Hop-If your dancer is taking hip hop, please wear clean gym shoes or combat boots for now until the teachers pick out shoes.

Lakefest 10/6-We were invited to perform in the gazebo at Lakefest on 10/6 between 11-11:45. Is anyone interested in performing their solo/duet from last year? Email me if interested.
