St. Patrick's day show teams

Advanced Beginner / Novice

Practice Times = Sunday 10-11am; January 12-March 1 (no practice 2/16 or 2/23)

 

Show team members will be learning show TEAM routines so it is imperative that they attend all practices. Missing dancers makes it very challenging to properly choreograph and practice the dances in preparation for shows.  We won’t know the exact show schedule until later in February. While we understand there could be some prior commitment conflicts, we do expect show team members and parents to prioritize performance attendance. 

 

All Advanced Beginner / Novice show team dancers are required to wear a school dress (or beginner costume if they do not have school dress), beginner bun wig, blue scrunchie, show team earrings, white bow and white poodle socks for shows and parades. 

 

If you do not currently own the accessories, we’ll be providing information on how to order in the coming weeks.You can also solicit costumes or wigs on the MT Parent Facebook Items for Sale page.
