The Solo/Duo/Trio Signup Genius has been updated – March dates for private rehearsals are now available.   Click here to access the Signup Genius.

Reminders:

  • You must bring payment ($30 for a 30 minute session with Cheryl, & $35 for 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.
  • 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.
  • Please bring your music to the private lesson.
  • 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.

This Signup Genius link is also available on the Team To Do List webpage for easy access throughout the season.

This year we are offering an option of DVD or USB Drive as the medium for delivering the video. The videos are great for the dancer who likes to study her dances (and others) over and over again…Perfect for the family member who can’t make that trip to see the Dance Showcase…And, of course, a wonderful keepsake of the performance!

Feel free to share this link noted above with your friends and family to purchase a video of the show! 

The link to purchase Showcase Videos has also been added to the Showcase Member Page for easy access….#7 on the list.

Lanyardsby now, you should have read the Showcase 2020 — Day of Shows Details document which mentions (along with several other really important to do’s for this weekend) the Vibe Lanyard is your ‘backstage pass’ to be allowed in the dressing rooms and backstage areas of the venue.  All Vibe moms must wear their lanyard on both Saturday and Sunday to be allowed backstage For those new to Vibe, we will make a smaller version of the list of dances that you can cut and place into the back of your lanyard so you have easy access to the dance order of each show at all times. For Showcase, it is the Show Order.  And we will have the same thing available for competitions once we know their schedule.  The Show Order for your Lanyard has been loaded on the Showcase Member page…it is #8 on the list.  Click here to access the Showcase Member web page.

 

Big/Little…With Love

Showcase is just around the corner!  Since this will be the first time that ALL of the Vibe dancers will be dancing together on stage, we would like for the dancers to fill their BIG or LITTLE SISTER’s ❤️ with love, support and encouragement for the big weekend!

We are providing each dancer with 2 cute crafts to make to “SHOW YOUR LOVE” for their Big or Little Sister this weekend.   Each dancer will receive a scratch art heart & a pom pom buddy.  These crafts will be distributed by group moms this week (whenever your group is at the studio next).  Take these home and create them for your Big or Little Sister.  Then write a note of encouragement, and attach a little token of “something sweet” and share all the love with your Big/Little sister this coming Saturday, February 8. 

****The dancers should give their BIG or LITTLE SISTER the crafts with something sweet, along with a note attached to them on Saturday, February 8 after the Dress Rehearsal. ****

SECOND, as a way to kickoff Showcase weekend, we will be celebrating “Throwback Thursday” this week.  The girls are encouraged to wear their favorite old/throwback costume to dance on Thursday, February 6.
