WENTZVILLE WINTER PARADE

The Starz Dance Team will participate in the Wentzville Winter Parade on Sunday, December 2nd. (This is an optional performance opportunity.)

PLEASE NOTE: Competitive classes and silks will run as usual until 4:30 p.m. All competitive rehearsals after 4:30 will be canceled due to parade activities.

The Sign-Up sheet will be posted in the lobby.

Students are required to wear the Angie’s Studio Red Santa Sweatshirt. If you do not have a Red Angie’s Santa sweatshirt from past parades they are available to order from Angie for $20.00. Please indicate on the sign-up sheet if you need a sweatshirt and what size. Orders for sweatshirts must be placed by Nov. 18. Payment can me made by cash or check and be placed in the payment slot or paid when you pick up your sweatshirt. Please make a notation on the check or envelope stating what the payment is for and what size sweatshirt you need. Sweatshirts will be handed out the day of the parade.

INFORMATION:
Wentzville Winter Parade Dec. 2nd- Please be at the studio to change into your sweatshirt and load on to the float by 5:00pm. We will then take the students to the starting point of the parade which is by the old Fire Station (209 W. Pearce Blvd.) at 5:15. The parade will begin at 6:00 and will go past the studio and down to the new Fire Station (502 Luetkenhaus Blvd.) We will immediately bring them back to studio when the parade is over. There will be Hot Chocolate and cookies served at the New Fire Station with Santa when the parade ends.

ATTIRE:
Students are to wear your Angie’s Red Santa sweatshirt with black leggings and tennis shoes. (if it is cold…I suggest to send them in a white turtle neck or under armor and gloves.)

We invite you to join us back at the studio after the parade festivities for Hot Chocolate and good company until 8:00 p.m.

LIBERTY SHOWCASE

Mark your calendars. The sixth annual Liberty Belles’ Showcase is scheduled for Saturday, January 19, 2019 at Liberty High School. 🙂

We have been invited to perform five group dances and will be bringing the following routines.

“Do Your Thing” – Open
“Paper Thin” – Lyrical
“Money” – Jazz
“Forget About The Boy” – Musical Theater
“Blindsided” – Contemporary

Soloists are also invited to perform on a first come first serve basis at a fee of $25.00 per entry. I will
let you know when they start accepting entries. (Unfortunately Tap dances are excluded from this opportunity due to the gymnasium floor.)

There is no charge for any group performance and no charge for performers. There will be a $5 admission collected at the door for all spectators.

The format for the Showcase is as follows.

5:15 – The doors will open at Liberty for all performers, teachers, directors, and spectators. Performers may utilize our auxillary gym for warming up.
6:00 – Soloists perform in the main gym.
7:00 – Group performances will begin in the main gym.

I will send additional information as it becomes available.

We are excited to once again be apart of this performance opportunity!

Shoes/Tights 2018-2019

Here is the list of shoes/tights required for each competitive group routine. Please note the shoe style/color may differ from the required shoes for their weekly class. It is important to purchase the exact shoe listed. Judges will take off points at competition when our shoes differ. If you are uncertain if you have the correct shoe have your child bring them to rehearsals (before they wear them) to get approval.

Shoes and tights can be purchased from your local dance supply stores and/or purchased on-line.

PLEASE NOTE: STUDENTS MUST HAVE THE CORRECT SHOES FOR EACH COMPETITION CLASS BY JANUARY 6TH! Please keep this in mind when ordering items on-line. You may have to make a return or wait for shipping or potential back-order items. Please also check the sizing chart for shoes as they do not always line up with street shoe size.

COMPETITION/PERFORMANCE: During the dance team year we will offer 2 to 3 opportunities to compete or perform at a high end level. The 2-3 regional competitions are mandatory. The traveling national competition or performance opportunity, is offered every other year, and is optional. Please Note…In order to take a routine to a national competition we will need to have a high enough score at regionals and have enough students from that routine choose to attend in order to meet the criteria. Those students traveling to Nationals or the Performance Opportunity, will continue classes and payments during the summer up until the date of the event. There are also optional local performance opportunities throughout the season and the team performs throughout all recital shows. (Nationals are offered on even years… Example 2018/2020/2022 etc…)

Optional performance opportunities throughout the season – We may choose to participate in will be posted as they become available. Liberty Belles Showcase, Wentzville’s Wabash Days, Wentzville’s Fourth of July Parade, Holt H.S. Exhibition, Wentzville October Fest, Cardinal Game, Riverfront Dance Festival, Dance St. Louis etc…
COSTUMES: $60 per costume, per routine. Costume payment is due by November 15th.You may make payments before this date if you choose. We will let you know if we are going to re-use a costume when we send out the audition invitation.

SHOES: Once costumes are selected we will let you know the style, brand and color of shoes you will need for each routine. The type of shoe may not be the same as your weekly class and must be purchased by the end of October.
PROPS: There may be a small charge if props are going to be used for a dance. (About $10 – $20 per student) TEAM JEWELRY / ACCESSORIES: Required to be purchased through studio. Earrings and Fishnet tights (the fishnet are only required for some routines.) Each item runs between $5-$15 (We may also add jewelry pieces if the costume calls for it.) Earrings and fishnet tights are the same as last year, so if you still have yours you don’t need to purchase new, but please keep your jewelry clean of make-up and hairspray.

MAKE-UP: The Starz Dance Team wears specific make-up and eyelashes to match on stage. This list will be released at the start of the season. To keep things affordable items can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Walgreens etc
FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES To defray some of the cost to your competition entry fees.

DANCE TEAM EXPECTATIONS: You are expected to be ON TIME, stretched, in proper attire, have proper shoes on, hair up and be ready to work hard at all rehearsals! Proper Dress Attire: Solid colored pink camisole/tank, sports bra or leotard with black booty shorts and tan tights. (Sr & Jr students may wear black leggings.) If proper attire is not worn there will be an automatic $10 charge. You are expected to be respectful to all teachers, classmates, studio members, parents and outside competitors.

ABSENTEE: NO MORE THAN 2 ABSENCES ARE ALLOWED DURING THE ENTIR DANCE TEAM SEASON. If you will be absent you MUST TEXT (NOT TELL) TEXT Ms. Andrea ahead of time. No one is allowed to miss the 2 weeks prior to a competition unless it has been approved by the instructor! IF YOU ARE ABSENT OR LATE TO MORE THAN 2 REHEARSALS, not including the 2 allowed misses, YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED A $30 FEE. THE INSTRUCTOR MAY REQUEST FOR YOU TO TAKE A PRIVATE LESSON IN WHICH THE $30 FEE WOULD COVER THE COST OF THE PRIVATE LESSON. If you do not TEXT Ms. Andrea prior to the missed class there will also be a $10 no show/no text fee. If you miss more than 2 rehearsals you may be removed from the team or may jeopardize your position in the dance formation. It is not fair to those who do arrive on time, prepared and present each week. We use every minute of rehearsal time to prepare for competition, so if you miss any of that time, you miss out on important details. We do not know the exact time or day each routine will be competing. You must be available each MANDATORY competition date that is listed. No refunds on competition fees after the required paid date.

PLEASE REMEMBER – THIS IS A COMPETITION TEAM. IT IS A HIGHER LEVEL OF COMMITMENT. WE ALL MUST WORK TOGETHER TO BE SUCCESSFUL!
