Back to School – Back to Dance!

Welcome back everyone!  It’s time for some fall dance team performances, community shows, and pre-winter prep!  I gotta get my act together around mnhsdanceteam.com too – it’s going to be winter dance before you know it.  I’ve updated the schedule page to flip us over to 2017-18 season, check it out and start making plans to visit your favorite events come November.  If you don’t see your event listed (competitions that is) – send me a note and I’ll include you.  Once I have details on each event, the links will turn pink and you can take a look at the schedule of the day and performance orders.  I’m also taking on new advertisers for the season this month, so if your business is looking for a great way to reach the dance team community, send an email to mnhsdanceteam@gmail.com to get your advertisers info packet.  We had half a million views last year and keep growing all the time.  Join us for our 7th year as the original home for dance team coverage.


News and notes for September:


MADT is hosting it’s fall continuing education day at Eastview High School on September 30th.  Registration for coaches as well as your chance to join the membership are open now on madtcoaches.com  — The CCE is FREE for all-inclusive member coaches and $55 if you’re not a member.  You don’t have to be a member to sign up.  Its a great chance to join in and learn something new.


MADT Fall Student Convention – mark your calendars now for the fall membership meeting and student convention on November 11th.  I’ll be teaching a class this year on dance team rules, I can’t wait to have some fun and meet more of our MN dancers!  See you there.


JAM judges are heating up too – their training for officials will be early October.  If you’re thinking “maybe I should judge” this is your chance to get in on the action.  Take a look at jamdanceteams.org for more information.


Rules Books for 2017-19:  I haven’t seen mine yet, but once I have a finalized new rules book for the next 2 seasons, I’ll be sure to share it with you here.  Be sure to read and understand your rules every year if you’re a coach, choreographer, captain, or official.  So many details to remember and minor points to stick to!  When and how you can choreograph and begin working with your winter team is spelled out in detail in the rules book, so make sure you’re ready for that come October.  If you want to look at the previous revision, it’s posted at mnhsdanceteam.com/rules-book
