COMPETITION/PERFORMANCE  DATES:

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 will also be optional local performance opportunities throughout the season.

March 10-12 (All groups, solos, duos & trios.) Platinum National Dance Competition, Scottish Rite, Lindell Boulevard, St. Louis, MO

May 5-7 (All groups, solos, duos & trios.) Tribute Dance, Missouri Baptist University, One College Park Drive Saint Louis, MO 63141-8698

May 18-21 (Solos, duos & trios only.) Starquest, Gateway Center, One Gateway Drive. Collinsville, IL 62234

Dates for the 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 costumes 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. (You will now purchase your own eyelashes.)

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

WE WILL HAVE FUNDRAISING OPPORTUNITIES TO HELP DEFRAY SOME OF THE COST OF YOUR COMPETITION ENTRY FEES.

DANCE TEAM EXPECTATIONS: You are expected to be ON TIME, already stretched in proper attire, have proper shoes and be ready to work hard at all rehearsals! If you do need to miss you must text or e-mail Ms. Andrea and the instructor of the class ahead of time. No one is allowed to miss the 2 weeks prior to a competition unless it has been approved by the instructor! We do not know the exact time or day each routine will be competing. You must be available each date that is listed. If we are not notified at the beginning of the dance season you will possibly be missing a competition, you may be asked to sit out the remainder competitions. No refunds on competition fees after the required paid date. You are allowed to miss 2 rehearsals throughout the entire season. IF YOU ARE ABSENT OR LATE TO MORE THAN 2 REHEARSALS YOU WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY CHARGED A $30 FEE. THE INSTRUCTOR MAY REQUEST FOR YOU TO TAKE A PRIVATE LESSON IN WHICH THE $30 WOULD COVER THE COST OF THE PRIVATE LESSON. 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. PLEASE REMEMBER – THIS IS A COMPETITION TEAM. IT IS A HIGHER LEVEL OF COMMITMENT. WE ALL MUST WORK TOGETHER TO BE SUCCESSFUL!

We are looking forward to continuing our amazing success this competition season!

Thank you, Ms. Andrea, Ms. Angie, Ms. Michelle, Ms. Colleen,  Ms. Mary & Ms. Christa
