Footloose Information!

Over the next couple of days I will be sending you more information as to the details of Footloose (February 5, 2010).  Just a few quick points (please pass on this information as well to your students, parents and drivers):
1.  We are now sold out of spectator tickets, therefore, there will NOT be any tickets available at the door.
2. Competitor registration begins at 3:20pm and the estimated end time of the competition is 9:30pm.  Teacher sponsors must sign in with their teams.  There will be a Teacher Chaperone room with light snacks and beverages for you.
3. There will be a private practice schedule being e-mailed shortly.  Each team will have the opportunity to run through their routine ONCE in the gym (where the actual competition will occur). If your team misses this time, due to the high number of competitors, we will NOT be able to reschedule another time.  Duo's and Trio's will not have the opportunity to run through their routine in the gym.
4. BBoy/BGirl Category - the basic format is each team will have 2.5 minutes to showcase and then at the very end of the night the top four teams will be given the opportunity to battle for 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th spots.  (Similar format to Battle of The Year).
5. As in past years, there will be a photo studio set up for professional team photographs to be taken for a nominal price.  The form will be sent out shortly.  *If you already know that your team/students are not interested, please let me know so I can leave your team off the photo studio schedule.
6. Doors open to spectators (parents, friends, students, family, etc.) at 6pm.  New this year will be a door for parents only :)  If your parents/drivers get there early because they are dropping off students, they can go over to Garden City Plaza for coffee (Blenz) or grab a bite to eat (various restaurants there).  The actual competition starts at 6:30pm.  Seating is on a first come first serve basis.
7. A concession stand will open up at 4pm for your energy needs.  Cash only.
8. New this year, we will be accepting your team(s) mixes via e-mail to do our part in saving the planet by not wasting CDs!  Please e-mail your team mixes to: [ mailto:adnaidu@gmail.com ]adnaidu@gmail.com by February 4, 2010.    Also, Footloose T-shirts will be sold for $10 and Footloose Lanyards for $3.

Driven Dance Competition - Kelowna - First Info Package

Dear Dance Teacher/Coach/Sponsor:



We are hosting our second RSS DRIVEN Dance Competition at Rutland Senior Secondary on Saturday, April 17th, 2010. Please complete this pre-registration form and fax ASAP to reserve your spot! The attached registration package, order forms and payment must be returned before March 5th, 2010. There will only be 50 spots for the night so the schools that pay first guarantee their spots.



The dance divisions will cover:



Hip-Hop: Junior and Senior Teams.



Open Team: Any style of dance such as jazz, lyrical, musical theatre, tap, multicultural.



Open: Any style of dance such as jazz, lyrical, musical theatre, tap, multicultural, hip hop etc. for all Duets, Trios/Quads.



Class: This division is open to schools who do not have a dance team but wish to bring a class. The “class” division is not open to any “team” where a selection process was used to select the group such as tryouts or an audition. This category is open to any style of dance including hip hop.



During the evening “Team” and “Class” competition we will have 2 judges panels. One panel will score juniors and the other seniors. This way there will be no pauses between numbers. The only time there may have to be a pause between numbers is when there are fewer junior entries in a category.



We will be following a very similar format to Pleasant Valley’s Adrenaline Dance Competition for those of you who have attended Janet Gillis’ competition in Armstrong. We are hoping to share the duties of hosting a competition in the Okanagan by alternating years. We are inviting schools from all over BC and are hoping for a great turn out.



The school that pays their fee(s) will be guaranteed their spot(s). Please be aware that your pre-registration form does not secure your spot(s) in the competition - you must pay to be confirmed.









If your school is interested in the RSS Driven Dance Competition please take the time to fill out this sheet and fax to: Jennifer Skogstad – Dance Teacher. If you need more information please phone (250) 765-1407, fax (250) 870-5010 or email jskogsta@sd23.bc.ca. We look forward to meeting your team in the near future!



Sincerely,





Jennifer Skogstad and Chantelle Manzuik
