During this season of crazy schedules, we know that many dancers may be missing classes due to school and family events. We wanted to remind you that dancers may make up any missed classes through the end of the season.

Earring orders will need to be turned in by Wednesday, December 20th to ensure delivery before our first competition. Order forms are attached to this email and available on the Company page of our website. ALL FEMALE DANCERS are REQUIRED to have at least one pair of competition earrings. We will be using the same earring as we used last year, so if you still have your earrings from last year, you do not need to purchase another pair. Please note the pricing for these earrings is based on bulk order pricing, if you need a pair later in the season, the price increases substantially.
Information about makeup, lip colors, hair, and any other competition accessories will be sent out as soon as possible.
Competition Christmas Party
SAVE THE DATE!! Our annual GDC Competition Team Christmas potluck will be held on Friday, December 15th at 7pm at Trish’s new house! We will be having a potluck and a bonfire, an email will be sent out shortly with more information.
Competition season is quickly approaching. All of our group dances will be completed before Christmas break! Our first competition will be the weekend of February 2nd. Please make sure that you keep the entire weekend free as we will not have a schedule for your dancer(s) until one week before the competition begins.
Fees for our first competition have been billed to your dancer’s account and are due on December 14th. It is imperative that these fees are paid on time, we are finding that several dance competitions are SELLING OUT early, so we need to make sure that we have all of our dances entered and paid for as early as possible.
