SHOWCASE FATHER DAUGHTER ROUTINES
SIGN UP BEGINNING — SUNDAY MARCH 19TH 2-4pm
★Our Father Daughter routines are a highlight of our Showcase Performances. These are lighthearted, fun and very simple character routines in which our students have an opportunity to dance with the man in their lives (uncles, grandfathers, friends etc. will work too!). This is a terrific opportunity for Dad’s to make some memories with their child! Tentative rehearsals dates are April 29th, May 6th(pictures) and May 13th.
★Rehearsals are mandatory. Participation is open to all students, only one child per “dad” please. Dads with more than one child should sign up for a separate routine with each child. Come join the fun!!
★Sign up is limited and is on a first come, first serve basis. Please note, we have had NO problems getting everyone who desires to participate in this event registered for the last several years. Registration will continue during our regular business hours throughout the month of March. There is a one-time $8.00 fee per couple to participate. This fee is non-refundable and due at sign up’s.
SIGN UP BEGINNING SUNDAY MARCH 19TH 2-4pm
The sign up sheet for our Showcase back stage volunteers will also be posted on Sunday the 19th. Sign up’s will continue during normal business hours after this initial date. Back stage volunteers help with costume details, supervise back stage, and help organize line up’s. They must be available to be back stage during the ENTIRE event of either dress rehearsal OR the performances, AND attend a mandatory meeting with ticket sales to be held on Friday, April 28th at 6:30pm. The children of our Volunteers will receive their costumes early and will serve as costume models for our classes. Volunteers also receive two free tickets to the Showcase, are allowed to purchase additional tickets prior to general sales, and get a free t-shirt. We appreciate your help SO much!
Miss Cari and our assistant teachers will be hosting a cheer clinic at Starz on Saturday March 11th from 1-3:30. Cost is only $25. Ages 6 & up are welcome! Sign up at the front desk now!
Would you like a copy of your child’s Showcase music? Please enclose $3 in an envelope with your child’s name and the routine title on it and turn it in at the front desk. CD copies will be posted on the bulletin board near the restrooms for you to pick up as they’re completed.
