Happy Season Kick-Off!

It’s here!! Back to dance day has arrived all across Minnesota.  Fall teams are wrapping up, choreography ink is drying, and we’re ready to roll.  Many teams begin their audition/placement process this week and the fun begins.  A few notes as we get going:

  • All dancers need registrations complete before practice can begin.  This includes paperwork, MSHSL requirements, physicals, and fees.  Your coaches would love it if you had all that in by now.
  • MADT Student Convention registration is open and ongoing.  The event held Nov. 1st is not to be missed (unless your team has their own thing going on…..) Get signed up early!
  • MADT Coaches meeting is also Nov. 1st  — notice the time change!  11am start with lunch included.  Never joined MADT?? Its not too late!  The association is how things “get done” in our world  — be a part of it or be left behind!  We’d love 100% membership
  • Invitational Registration is now live on MADT – – get signed up early so the judges can be scheduled correctly for these events.

First meets are in 4 weeks!  See you then 😉  Stay tuned for our pre-season coverage and a look back at last year’s state tournament – coming up soon!
