About The Vibe

FootNotes Dance Company (The Vibe)

Solo/Duo/Trio Signups have been updated

The Solo, Duo, Trio Signup Genius has been updated with December and January dates for private rehearsals.   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.  Please remember the following:

  • Please bring your music to the private lesson.
  • After a week of your first sign up, you may check again and sign up for one more open slot during the month.
  • Please bring payment ($30 for 30 minute sessions with Cheryl or Shannon) 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.

Details about the NUVO Dance Convention

Cost to attend the convention: Saturday is $175 per dancer, and both Saturday and Sunday are $260.  You will note that these are early registration rates….Cheryl must have your intent to attend by Friday, December 7.   Observer bands (for a parent if you wish to be in the room where the dancers are) are $55/per person for both days.
