Competition Fees Reminder that all competition fees must be paid BEFORE we will enter your dancer in the competition. All fees and due dates are posted on the sign-up sheets at the studio. These fees must be a separate check as well please. Generation IV Dance Winter Workshop Update There is still plenty of spots available for anyone that has not signed up yet and is interested in joining us for a great day of classes. A perfect holiday gift for you dancer! Faculty update: · Channing Cooke · Billy Griffin · Angelica Stiskin · Jonny Forance · Nick Anthony · Kelly Kaleta · Taylor Graham For those that are signed up for the Preteen age group, we ask that you attend the morning session from 9am – 2pm (unless you have already pre-registered online for the PM session), that is when more space is available. The AM Preteen session will be in Studio A and the PM Preteen session (2:45 pm – 8:30pm) will be in Studio F. If there are any conflicts please let us know ASAP and we will make an exception. Any Preteen and Teen/Senior dancers that would like to attend a FULL day of classes can do so for just an additional $50 for the second session ~ a 50+% discount! All Preteens can participate in both the AM and PM sessions and Teen/Seniors are more than welcome to join the AM Preteen session. We have asked the faculty to have different choreography for both Preteen sessions so as not to repeat the same material. Alison will be posting a list of all those that are currently registered in the next couple of days on the bulletin board at the studio. Please check the list ASAP to make sure your dancer is on the list. Any Preteens or Teen/Seniors that would like to take a second session, add your name to the second session on the posted list. Also, if there are any Preteens listed in the wrong session of their choice, please correct that as well. Any questions feel free to contact Alison directly. All payments made on Sunday, December 17th must be cash or check made out to Generation IV Dance. Sorry, no credit cards accepted that day, as it is a separate business from HSPA. We will have the full schedule posted soon! Looking forward to an inspiring day of dance!
