Notice: Dance Team Adventure Notice One

Dear Frank Hurt Dance Team Parents & Guardians,
Each year I strive to bring a performance oriented trip experience to our dance teams to strengthen the team bond/culture and broaden our performing and artistic horizons. This year, we have the opportunity to do a slightly different trip and take a break from the competition circuit. In partnership with the Surrey Dance Teacher’s Association, Frank Hurt teams have the opportunity to travel to Seattle with approximately 150 other dancers from local schools to both perform and train. The trip would take place from June 5th-7th and would encompass a half-day show at a Seattle elementary school, giving us the opportunity to share dance with a group of students who do not get regular exposure to the Performing Arts. We would also be taking a variety of workshops from different industry professionals, giving our dancers valuable training experience outside of the lower mainland dance community. The trip would also incorporate a variety of team building activities that strengthen our unity and team culture.
While myself and the other coordinating teachers are still working on the exact itinerary and working to ensure the trip is as economical as possible, we estimate that the cost of the trip would be approximately $250 per student. With significant fundraising effort between now and June we can also work to bring this cost down further. This cost would include all transportation (including local in Seattle), 2 nights accommodation, daily breakfasts and snacks, all dance workshops, a Mariner’s Game and some chaperone expenses.
In order to help us in our planning, we need to get a rough idea of numbers as soon as possible so we can move ahead with details. Please indicate interest below. Please know that ticking “yes” now does not commit you but only lets me know that there is serious interest/possibility of your son/daughter attending.  Should you have any questions about the trip, please do not hesitate to contact me at any point. Thank you,
               Ms.   Paula Johnson
