COMPETITION DANCER BUZZ

NYCDA MINNEAPOLIS


NYCDA WIL BE INVOICED AND DUE DECEMBER 1

NYCDA will be held at the Minneapolis Convention Center, December 13 - 15. A complete schedule will be posted on their website about 10 days prior to the event. We will also send it out via email. Parents that wish to observe the dancers are required to pay an observer fee and may do so at the door. The JAMM staff will be stopping into each ballroom but will not be able to chaperone dancers the entire session. Parents of dancers in the mini and jr. room may want to delegate one parent per day that will be able to assist dancers for restroom breaks etc parents should split the cost of the observer bags in this case. Observer bands may be shared (they are a reusable shopping bag ). Please let the studio know if you are in these two rooms who will be with the dancers on these two days.


The following are the studio showcase dancers for NYCDA. While many of the JAMM dancers qualify for this honor. We have selected the following dancers based on their outstanding positive and confections attitudes while at the studio.


Mini - Danika Johnson

Junior- Avery Cline

Teen- Jillian Tucker
