2015-2016 Dance Year

Volunteers Needed

Welcome to a new dance team competition year! I have agreed to be the team mom this year but bear with me as my only experience has been with boys baseball teams. This should be more fun! My daughter, Maggie Grace, has been with Dance Dept for 10 years. This is our second year on team.


I hate to start off the year with a request, but we need to have two parents (don't have to be moms) to assist with the Okra Strut Parade this Saturday. Its a great opportunity to get a little exercise as the volunteers will be walking the parade with the girls after checking them in at their umbrella. The rumor is that we will in the front portion of the parade. The volunteers will need to meet at Crossroads Middle School at 8:30a or Kroger parking lot at 7:50a to ride the truck down to CRMS. If you are willing to help with our team, please email me at anneclisle@gmail.com. I have to turn both names in to Jessa by Thursday, September 24th. She will be in touch directly with you.


I would love to do everything I can to make this an awesome year for our dancers. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks so much!

Team Socials & Surprises

We will be having a couple of parties for the girls to spend some time outside of the studio together. This is a great opportunity for them to get to know each other and important for them to build a bond as a team. I would prefer that we do something on the weekend so we don't interfere with other obligations like homework. I am considering October 24th or 25th. Please let me know if you have a conflict with either date as its important that we have as many girls there as possible. I am going to let the girls choose what they would like to do by voting in class.


There will be several small surprises throughout the year for the girls. Rather than nickel and dime the parents, I would like to collect $20 from each parent to cover the costs. The girls will get these small gifts at the competitions. I promise to try to find things the girls will want to keep. Please send the money in with your daughter in an envelope with her name on it. I will get them from Caroline.


If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at anneclisle@gmail.com or call me at (803) 261-5936. If you did not receive this information via email, take a minute and drop me an email so I can add you to the group.


Thanks!
