About The Vibe

FootNotes Dance Company (The Vibe)

Big/Little Sister Reveal Details…

Each parent should have received an email today indicating if your dancer is a BIG or LITTLE Sister this season.   The email contains important information about what your dancer needs to do for this Sunday’s (October 25) Big/Little Sister Reveal.   It also includes exact times to arrive/carpooling is recommended, etc.  Please make sure you have read this email and let us know if you have any questions.   Moms are welcome at the park for the Big/Little Reveal.

If you did not receive an email about the Reveal earlier today, please email us at footnotesdanceblog@gmail.com.

If for some reason your dancer is unable to make it to the Big/Little Sister Reveal, please let us know that as well (email us at the above address).     

Lastly, if the weather does not cooperate with us since this is an outside event, we will be in touch on Sunday for alternative plans.

Hotel Info for Regional Competition

Our Hotel Logistics team (Trisha Urrea and Lori Murphy) has been busy on the phones to secure hotels for our out of town regional competition…thank you again, ladies, for all of your hard work! 

Please click here to be directed to the Competition Hotel webpage.   Please read the Regional Competition Hotels PDF document carefully.  There is a lot of information being communicated about each option listed in this document.  Make sure you review each hotel’s cancellation policy as you are booking the reservation.

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If you can not secure the rate that is listed for a hotel, please email us at footnotesdanceblog@gmail.com, (include which hotel and rate), and we will get that information to our Hotel Logistics committee for review with the hotel.  They will let you know if they are able to secure additional rooms at the special rate. Note that we are not able to secure a block of 65+ rooms at these rates at each hotel…hotels will not allow us to do that. We have smaller blocks of rooms secured at each hotel, with the option of them allowing us to open up more accommodations should we book to their maximum allowed for the block (assuming rooms are still available at that rate).

Volunteer Questionnaire – Need Your Response

The success of The Vibe Performance Company is dependent upon the ongoing support of our dancer’s families. Each family is required to contribute 12 volunteer hours to the VPC (20 hours for families with more than one dancer) each season.

The Vibe Volunteer Information Questionnaire Form link is below.   This form asks a series of questions to provide the opportunity for you to identify your skills and interests to pair you to the right volunteer positions. 

Please click here to start the questionnaire (your response is due by Thursday, September 17 end of day). It has several sections:

  • Basic info about you and/or your husband (if he has able to volunteer)
  • Skills and Interests
  • A list of the open key roles in the Vibe, with several options for each
  • Ranking: You will then be asked to rank the positions you selected from most to least interest levels.  If you are also including information for your spouse, please indicate that in the ranking list.

Note that if you hit the back arrow to return to a previous page, you will lose all data and need the form to start over. There is a Questions and Comments section on the last page to add any info you might have left off earlier in the form.

Once we have the responses from the Volunteer Information Form, the Board will review the responses and placements will be compiled.  

Thanks for your attention to getting this form filled out by Thursday, September 17 end of day and for all you do to make us VIBE-STRONG!  The form is also accessible on the Team To Do List web page for your convenience.  

Note:  A separate Signup Genius for the “day of” Dance Showcase volunteer positions will be sent out at a later date once plans for Showcase are finalized.  You will note that all of these volunteer roles are not listed in this Volunteer Information Questionnaire form.
