1. RECITAL & COMPETITION TEAM CHOREOGRAPHY
A friendly reminder; we are beginning all recital routines the week of November 6th and all competition routines the week of November 20th. Attendance is crucial at this time of the dance season. If a dancer misses more than 4 classes during this time of the year, it will be to the teacher’s discretion to decide if a dancer participates in the recital. Learning a recital routine is a group effort, at any age, and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation and attendance.
2. SANTA CLAUS PARADE PRACTICES
Thursday, November 9th at 8:15-9:00
Thursday, November 16th at 8:15-8:45
Since we only have two practices it is MANDATORY to attend both practices.
We will have the same Santa Claus hoodies as last year for all those dancing behind the float and, for the dancers sitting on the float, we will have Elf hoodies. MKDA will keep all hoodies but if you wish to purchase a hoodie, you may do so for $35.00. Last year, there was a hand-full of people who bought the hoodies, so please do not forget them!
*BRIGHTEN YOURSELF UP WITH LIGHTS!
Since the theme of the parade is ‘Christmas Around The World’, MKDA will be paying tribute to LAS VEGAS. Therefore, we want all of our dancers to wear as many lights as possible on themselves to represent the busy night life in Vegas as well as the numerous, bright CASINOS! Search all the store for lights: Walmart, Dollarama, Bargain Shop etc..
*BANNER HOLDERS & CANDY GIVERS!
We are looking for 2 volunteers to hold the Chamber of Commerce banner and 2 volunteers to hold the MKDA sign. We would prefer adult volunteers if possible. We are also looking for volunteers to hand out candies to the kids who are watching the parade.
Everyone must be at the studio by 5:30pm at the latest. Please dress warm! Parade officially starts at 6:00pm but we will not get moving until 6:30pm.
The parade finishes at the Holiday Inn Hotel. MKDA dancers will need to be picked up at the Holiday Inn.
3. DANCE DADS
Reminder: We are still looking for more dads to participate in this year’s DANCE DADS performance. We want to thank the 9 dads who gave their name, but we are eager to receive more names. First practice starts Wednesday, November 8th at 7:45-8:45pm. Email Mardi if you would like to sign up: firstname.lastname@example.org
