Competition & Performing Line Updates!

Hello parents,

I hope you had a great weekend! We had so much fun at Innovate, it was nice to see our routines on stage and see the dancers learn new things and give back. We created 73 scarves and 57 hats for Union Gospel Mission, and 61 craft kids for Family Wise! That is pretty awesome:)

Dress Rehearsal - 2/8 and 2/9 is our Competition and Performing Line Dress rehearsal! I am looking forward to seeing the dances on stage. HERE is the schedule. Bring ALL SHOES AND COSTUMES to rehearsal. HAIR AND MAKE UP should be done. Arrive ready to go 20 minutes before your first dance. 

MAKE UP tutorial is HERE. We will update you on when make up will arrive.
