Account Balances:


Competition Kick Off Party:

As competition season approached we like to get the dancers together for some team bonding before we compete. We will hold this party on Monday, Feb. 18th at the Pizza, Pie Café from 4:30-5:30pm. We have the banquet room reserved!

Competition Information Night:

As competition season approaches there will be many questions that need to be answered. I will be holding a parent meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 19th from 7:00-8:00pm in Studio C to discuss competition procedures. Please try to attend!! 

Practices, Extra Practices, and Performances:

We are coming into the busy months of competition season. As a reminder classes and extra rehearsals are not optional. We have asked you not to schedule family vacations or activities near competition months. It is very frustrating to instructors when dancers are continually missing class. We try to give as much notice as we can when extra rehearsals are scheduled. We receive special invites to perform at different local events in the month of March. These performances are also required.


Many costumes will arrive towards the end of February right before dress rehearsal. Please be patient and remind the girls they will not need them until we perform. When you start receiving them I recommend putting your dancers name in every piece. This way if it gets picked up by another dancer or left we will know who to return it to. Many costumes have hair pieces and miscellaneous accessories. Team moms will keep them and bring to all competitions and performances! Earrings- If you have not responded to your email regarding team earrings then please review it and email me ASAP.

Spring Technique Workshops:

We will be offering a series of technique workshops beginning in March. Dancers will learn to enhance their endurance, style, form and technique. Each class will concentrate on different aspects of dance, striving to improve their overall technical ability. These are great classes for those interested in auditioning for our “Company Teams” or for those wanting to improve their technical abilities! Cost per class is $15.00 per hour class or $20.00 per hour and a half. Classes will be held on Saturday, March 16th, April 6th,

May 4th, & June 8th.  Ages 10+ 8:30-10:00am, Ages 6-9 10:00-11:30am. Signups available in the office!

Pre-Registration is required. Class size will be limited.

Company Dress Rehearsal:

Our team dress rehearsal will be held at the studio on Sat., Feb. 23rd from 7:45am-2:30pm. Detailed times will be emailed out the first week in Feb. Your dancer will not need to be there the entire day. Team rehearsals could last up to 2hrs depending on the number of dances they are competing. This is a closed practice. Competition hair and make up will be required along with all costumes and shoes. Competition hair and make-up will be reviewed again at the parent meeting. We will need one parent volunteer (team mom) per class.

Junior Elite will have dress rehearsal on Thursday, Feb. 14th because of a scheduling conflict with their instructor. This information was already emailed out. They will need to follow competition hair and make up procedures. I will send another email next week with more instructions.

Elite- Will have dress rehearsal for Hip Hop on Thursday, Feb. 14th during Hip Hop class. Hair, make up, and costume will be required.

Rylan is our soft hearted and responsible 8 year old that loves to laugh and have fun with her family and friends. She's a great big sister and a wonderful example to them. She enjoys traveling, camping, and hanging out with all of her friends. She does great in school with spelling being her best subject. She's been dancing with HIP for three years now and loves performance time. We love watching her succeed at whatever she puts her mind to and are so proud of her!
