Kelowna - Dance Teams

Dear parents and guardians,

The Frank Hurt Dance Teams will be competing at Driven Dance Competition in Kelowna at Rutland Senior Secondary School. The cost to students is $100. This cost covers the bus and the hotel. The school is covering the cost of the competition and the Surrey Dance Teacher’s Association is covering the cost of the hotel for the teachers and the bus driver. Volunteers will not have to pay for their bus or hotel either as they will be supervising students the entire weekend.

There will be a parent meeting to go over all of the overnight field trip rules. This will take place at the Works in Progress Show on April 7, 2010 after the show is completed around 7:30. Please try to be there.

If you allow your son or daughter to attend this dance competition please sign and return the attached form as soon as possible. This way I can get our numbers organized accordingly.

If you have any questions please e-mail me:
Please check the blog for updates:

Happy Dancing,
Paula Johnson
