Cardinals Baseball Fundraiser

We are offering another optional fundraising opportunity to sell 2018 Cardinals Baseball Calendars! ⚾️

An electronic order form is attached to this e-mail for you to print. (There is no option to order on-line.)

Calendars cost $15.00. You keep $7.00 of each one sold! 😃

Cash and checks accepted. All checks made payable to Angie’s Studio. (Make sure to write your child’s name in the memo line on ALL checks submitted.)

Orders due by December 3rd. The calendars will arrive before the end of the year! (Should be in before Christmas.)

Great holiday gift idea for Cardinal fans!

The no risk terms enable you to keep $7 of the calendar’s $15 retail price. You’ll be billed only for the calendars you sell, with no minimum required to participate, and we accept reorders through spring 2018.

The program capitalizes on two key components: 1) our region’s passion for Cardinals baseball; and 2) the popularity of calendars as holiday gift items. Fans love the oversized wall calendar, which features beautiful design, spectacular photography and the upcoming season’s complete Cardinals schedule. And everyone loves the coupon section, featuring four pages of great deals from a variety of retailers.

PRIZE INCENTIVE:
Participation in this fundraiser is easy. Prize incentives are awarded to groups that meet these easily achievable sales targets:
• 50 calendars sold: Five ticket vouchers, each redeemable for two tickets to a 2018 home game.
• 100 calendars sold: A randomly selected premium prize, which could include game tickets and a field visit during batting practice; a goodie bag stuffed with Cardinals memorabilia; a player-autographed item; or a Cardinals gift card.
• 200 calendars sold: You’re automatically entered into grand-prize drawings for a 50-inch HDTV; party suite tickets; and expanded Cardinals experiences.

Wentzville Winter Parade

The Starz Dance Team will participate in the Wentzville Winter Parade on Sunday, December 3rd. (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. (Great Balls Of Fire will also be canceled.)

The Sign-Up sheet will be posted in the lobby at this Sunday’s rehearsal.

Students are required to wear the Angie’s Studio Red Santa Sweatshirt. If you do not have an 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. 17. 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. Sweatshirts will be handed out the day of the parade.

INFORMATION:
Wentzville Winter Parade Dec. 3rd- Please be at the studio to change into your sweatshirt and load on to the float by 4:45. We will then take the students to the starting point of the parade which is at 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 Fire Station with Santa when the parade ends.

ATTIRE:
Students are to wear your Angie’s Red Santa hat 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.)

In lieu of the float decorating party 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.

Competition Shoes/tights

Here is the list of shoes/tights required for each competitive 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 7TH! 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 Fee Updates!

Hello Parents,
I have some wonderful news! Both the K.A.R. competition and Legacy competition are offering Early Bird discounts for their competition entry fees. This means we will be saving some money!

In order to qualify for the Legacy discount we MUST have a deposit from each student in the amount of one group routine at the new rate of $32 NO LATER THAN NOVEMBER 15th. We realize this is short notice but feel it is worth the discount in the end. The remaining balance for the regional competition will not be due until March 1st as originally planned.

New rates for Legacy Regionals are as follows:
•Solos $94.50
•Duos/Trios $117.00 to be split between students. (Duets $58.50 per person. Trios $39.00 per person.)
•Groups $32.00 per person per routine

In addition, if you are planning to attend Legacy Nationals we will require a deposit from each student in the amount of one group routine at the new Nationals rate of $45 NO LATER THAN APRIL 15th to qualify for the Nationals Early Bird special.

New rates for Legacy Nationals are as follows:
•Solos $117.00
•Duos/Trios $139.50 to be split between students. (Duets $69.75 per person. Trios $46.50 per person.)
•Groups $45.00 per person per routine

The K.A.R. fees will be due January 1st as planned. Please note ALL K.A.R. payments MUST BE PAID IN FULL BY JANUARY 1st for us to qualify for the Early Bird discount!

New rates for K.A.R. are as follows:

•Duos/Trios $49.00 per person

For those who have already made payments on your competition fees or have a credit from fundraisers, your first credits were applied to the Beyond the Stars competition and rolled over to the KAR competition then Legacy. If your credits covered all three competitions, the remaining credit went towards costume fees. Please check your portal…if you have any questions, please let us know.

Thank you,
Ms. Angie & Ms. Andrea

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 will also be optional local performance opportunities throughout the season.

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!
