Majestic Memo

February 3, 2016

New Information!

Good morning Majestics and Parents!


I hope everyone enjoyed their February break, and that we are rejuvenated and ready for a fast paced contest month. Our team routines are looking good and I was dazzled by the solos and duets last week. Things are starting to come together majestically!


In an effort to avoid calling a Saturday practice, I've called an early rehearsal this coming Friday. Please note this change in the weekly schedule listed below. This is a mandatory rehearsal for all competing Majestics.


Also, because dance is the only sport that never has an off-season, this week's email includes details about the rest of the year's events, such as: officer tryouts, line tryouts, summer camps and spring show. I will be adding more details in the weeks to come, but wanted you to have some info to begin planning.


Please read over this email and let me know if you have any questions.


Have a Majestical Week,


K. Mabry

Weekly Schedule and Announcements

Contest Rehearsal Schedule:

We will follow our normal schedule this week:

  • EARLY Friday Morning - Morning rehearsal beginning at 7:00am (Wear the black & white top, ankle pants, bring poms)


*** If you are not participating in contest season, you do not have to attend these rehearsals.

Contest Season Fees and/or Fundraising:

Registration Fees and Costume expenses are due. Our bake sale brought in a little over $600, which means $10 will be credited to each girl. If you've not paid your contest fee of $150, you can deduct the $10 from that total and only pay $140. Please send your check with TXDL and Phone number made out to the Majestics Dance Team.


If you have already paid the full $150, you can choose to get a free pair of tights OR use that $10 towards spring show tickets, a spring show t-shirt OR banquet tickets at the end of the year. We can not issue refunds for fundraised funds.


Please contact me for more details or information.

Contest Day Expectations

Both contests will begin at 8:00am, but our arrival time will be when the doors open for performers. This will vary by contest, but plan on an early morning drop off.


The Majestics will be required to stay as a team until the awards ceremony is over. The contest in Liberty Hill should be over around 6pm. The contest at VHS won't be over until 10, or even 11pm. Plan on a late night.


Depending on our performance schedule, there will be breaks in the day where performers are allowed to spend time in the stands or visit with family. Those breaks won't be announced until the contest schedule has been announced the week prior to the contest.


These days are long and tiring, but also fun and exciting. The girls will be well cared for and well fed throughout the day.

OFFICER TRYOUT INFO

Officer Tryout Packets and information will not be available until March 1, 2016. Anyone interested in trying out for officer will need to prepare a notebook (according to the directives given in the packet), learn and perform an officer routine in front of a panel of judges, and under go an interview process.
