Good Afternoon Everyone!


We will have rehearsal this week on Wednesday, March 23 and March 24 from 5-8 p.m.


Our next competition is this Saturday, March 26th, at River Ridge HS. Visit the website for competition details, map and schedules: http://www.sapaonline.net/events/132 . The cost for spectators to view the show is $9 per person. Thank you to Brooke's mom and brother who offered to assist with the floor on and off the performance area this Saturday. We probably could still use some more assistance in case the unit that Pierre has coordinated with is unable to assist us,


The students will be wearing their performance costumes on Saturday along with show hair and makeup. Students need to wear body tight and appropriate undergarments under their costume. Also, students will need black flip flops to walk to performance and after performance.
