Notice: Seattle Dance Team Trip Second Notice

Dear Frank Hurt Dance Team Parents & Guardians,

I did not receive a great response from our students for the Seattle trip. About half of the dance team students are able to go. A lot of time and effort is put into planning an event like this and the reason that I give my time to these events is because I know it creates great memories and bonding opportunities for the students. If you have any questions about this event, please feel free to e-mail me or come and see me at the school. I would like to have as many of the dance team students involved as I can as it will create stronger bonds for our teams next year, it will be a great send off to those seniors that will be leaving us, and it will make for better performances if all of the team members are there to perform.

I am working together with Ms. Law from Sullivan, Ms. Jensen, from Panorama, and Ms. Clements from North Surrey to put together this dance experience for our students. We are still working on the details and will need to have the exact numbers of students attending so we can book the busses, hotel rooms, and Mariners tickets. For this reason a non-refundable deposit of $75 is due: March 4, 2015.

Here is the proposed schedule for Seattle: 
Friday, June 5, 2015:
Bus leaves Surrey early morning to Hotel Nexus in Northgate
Surrey Showcase Performance at Northgate Elementary
Saturday, June 6, 2015:
Dance classes from industry professionals at hotel (convention style)
Bus to downtown Seattle (spend the day touring, shopping, etc.)
Subway to Mariners stadium all together
Game from 7pm to approximately 9:30 or 10pm
Bus takes us back to hotel after
Sunday, June 7, 2015:
Sleep in, checkout, bus back to Surrey, arriving around mid-afternoon.

There will be a mandatory parent information meeting before the Works in Progress show on April 9 at 6:00. Our show will start at 6:30. If your student is planning on attending the Seattle Dance Team Trip but you are unable to attend this meeting time, please e-mail me to set up a meeting time that will work for you. ( At this meeting, I will collect the second payment of $75 for the trip, go over the final itinerary, and have all the necessary forms to be completed and handed in.

Hopefully, with some fundraising, we will be able to get the price down from $250 to $200 and the final payment will only be $50. The final payment will be due May 14, 2015 at dance team practice.

Important Dates:
March 4, 2015                  $75 deposit due
April 9, 2015 at 6pm         $75 second payment and parent meeting in the theatre.
May 9, 2015: 10 - 6           Fundraising Event: Krispy Kreme at Walmart Langley
May 14, 2015                    $50 - $100 (depending on fundraising) final payment due.

If you have any questions don’t hesitate to e-mail or come and see me at the school.
