Special Notes(As always, please email Mrs. Hancock if you have questions or concerns):
We are hoping for a fun-filled festival and performance. In the chance of rain, dance students will be escorted into the VHS gym and perform in the VHS gym. An announcement will be made from the press box if this accommodation is necessary.
Dance students wear their class uniform (black leotard and black shorts for females, black shirt and black shorts for males).
Wear sneakers and no-show socks for the performance. DO NOT WEAR DANCE SHOES. They will be ruined if used in the grass.
Hair is secured in a ponytail (center and back; not on the side) if it is shoulder length and off of face if short. Girls are asked to wear a white ribbon in their ponytail.
Dance students meet on the track by the large wall on the end with the restrooms. Class signs will be posted along the wall and chaperones will take attendance.
Check in is at 7:00 pm. Dance students will warm up and be ready to perform at 7:20. Dance students will be finished by 8:00 pm.
Dance students are expected to remain until the show has concluded. After the conclusion of the show, chaperones will escort dancers back to the class drop off area along the wall on the track. Parents pick up their dance student at the drop off area by their child's class sign. Parents must sign out their dance student.
Please note: Students who do not sign out with the chaperone will lose points on their performance grade.
Dance students will not be released to walk around the festival. Students must be signed out by a parent or sibling of driving age with a valid driver's license. If a different adult than the parent is picking up the dancer, Parents must inform Mrs. Hancock via email by Thursday, Sept. 29.
All dance students who are remaining (not picked up) will be escorted to the press box area by Mrs. Hancock to wait for parents.
