More Showcase Info – Detailed Schedule & Signup Genius

SHOWCASE DETAILED SCHEDULE

The Showcase Chairs will host a Showcase Informational Meeting only for new members of Vibe this year.  This meeting will occur during the hair and make-up tutorial session at the studio on February 4th.  In lieu of the mandatory Vibe Parent Meeting that is typically held prior to Showcase, we kindly ask that you please read the attached document to review important details about Showcase, including venue details, drop-off and pick-up instructions, timeline, etc.  Click here to access the 2023 Showcase Member Information Page.  The Showcase Detailed Schedule is #4 on the list.

SHOWCASE VOLUNTEER SIGNUP

Thank you to those members that have already signed up for multiple positions on our Showcase 2023 Signup Genius!  Several key/”must fill” positions are still open and need volunteers.  We need your help to get these open positions filled. Please click here to access the Vibe 2023 Dance Showcase Signup Genius.    

Reminders from the initial post about the Signup Genius:

  1.  Please note that many of  these volunteer roles only require up to an hour of your time, so you may sign up for multiple volunteer positions across both shows.    
  2. Please be conscious of any time conflicts when signing up for multiple roles.  If you have any questions on volunteer positions, feel free to email us at footnotesdanceblog@gmail.com.

It truly takes a village and we appreciate the cooperation and support of each of our dance families pulling together to bring Showcase to life!  If you have any questions regarding Showcase 2023, please reach out to Amy Smith or Elisa Bobbitt.

Solo, Duo, Trio Signup Genius Updated with Times for Next Weekend

Cheryl has created the Solo, Duo, Trio Signup Genius for this season. Click here to access the Signup Genius.

Make sure that you note on the Signup Genius whether you are signing up for your dancer’s solo, duo, or trio rehearsal.   Please make sure that only 1 mom or dancer signs up for a given slot for a duo or trio.

You may only sign up for one slot each time new dates are posted. After one week, you may sign up for an additional spot, but you must have pre-approval from Cheryl.  

Dancers, please remember the following:

  • Please bring your music to the private lesson.
  • Please bring payment ($35 for a 30 minute session with Cheryl or Madison) at the start of each rehearsal.  There is no option to have this charge added to your FootNotes account.  All dancers must pay the instructor directly by either check, Venmo, or cash.
  • If your dancer is unable to attend your booked rehearsal session, you must notify FootNotes at footnotesdance@comcast.net, at least 24 hours ahead of your scheduled time.   If you ‘miss’/forget a rehearsal that you have signed up for, you are still responsible for the payment to the instructor.
  • As always, dancers are always free to book an empty room to practice on their own.

Photo Buttons

Pin on your pride and joy! We are offering Photo Buttons again this year for our Vibe dancers to show spirit for our girls.  The buttons are 3″ in diameter and will feature a photo of your dancer with a red border that says “FootNotes Dance & Acrobatics” around the outer edge. It can be further customized with your daughter’s name, as an option.  See button example above.

Headshot photos for the photo buttons will be taken on Saturday, February 4th from   10:30 AM – 1:30 PM at the Studio

If you wish to purchase a photo button this year, please come to the studio to have your dancer’s headshot taken during the time slot listed above. Please fill out the Google form (link below) so that we know how many buttons you wish to order.

What to wear: Please have your daughter wear light stage makeup and her FootNotes jacket, and competition earrings.  If you have last year’s competition earrings, bring them to use for the headshot.  If you do not, we will have a few extra pairs of clip ons at the studio. Your Dancer’s hair should be styled neatly in any hairstyle. 

Buttons are $5 each,.  We will be taking payments (cash or check) when photos are taken.

Please click here to access the Google form to place your photo button order today.  Deadline to order/make payment is Saturday, February 4. Orders for the photo buttons will be placed with our vendor that next day.  We are not sure if they will make it in time for Showcase, but they should be here in time for our first competition in March.  Please make sure that you fill out all fields on the form and press submit.

FootNotes/Vibe Car Magnets will also be for sale during this time at the studio…$5/each.

Showcase Volunteer Signup for Day of Shows & Arrival Times

The Vibe’s Showcase Committee has a long list of volunteer positions to be filled for the 2 days of our shows.  Please click here to access the Vibe 2023 Dance Showcase Signup Genius.    

A couple of reminders about the Signup Genius:  Every Vibe family is obligated to volunteer at least one position during Showcase.   We have MANY positions to fill in order to ensure Showcase goes off “without a hitch!”  This is the best time of the year to earn your hours towards the 12 hours required from each dancer family (20 hours for families with two dancers).

Please note that many of  these volunteer roles only require up to 1 hour of your time (as noted in the Signup Genius description of the position), so you will likely want to sign up for multiple volunteer positions across both days.    

Please be aware of any time conflicts when signing up for multiple roles. For instance, you can not be a Lead Group Mom and Concessions Sales for the same show as you would be needed in both roles at the same time. However, you could easily be a Lead Group Mom for the Saturday show and Concessions Sales for a Sunday show, as an example.  If you have any questions on volunteer positions, feel free to email us at footnotesdanceblog@gmail.com.

A few important notes about Showcase:

  1. Only registered volunteers assisting with backstage duties and Lead Group Moms for
    each group are allowed backstage during Dress Rehearsal. Lead Group Moms for Saturday, February 18, will assist during Dress Rehearsal AND Show #1. If you are registered for other volunteer positions throughout the weekend, please note your arrival times on the Sign-up Genius (link above).
  2. Dancer Arrival Times on both days of Showcase. Please arrive promptly on February 18 and 19.  These times have been added to the Master Calendar.

      • Saturday’s Dress Rehearsal will start promptly at 10:45 AM

  • Each season, the interest to perform a solo, duo and/or trio continues to growth within Vibe. We are proud to see so many dancers who want to showcase their talents increase each season.  This year, in an effort to provide a comfortable length show for our guests, only high school senior dancers will perform their solo at Showcase.  Each senior dancer will perform their solo in each show.  If there is a duo or trio with ALL senior dancers, they will perform that routine in each show as well.
