October Events

Well I hope you’re all having an awesome fall (and fall dance season) – it sure is going by fast! Winter choreography starts in just 11 days. Wow! I guess I’d better get my act together for an awesome new season. Luckily, there are some great events to get you warmed up and ready to go coming up. It’s not too late to get these on your schedule.


October 4th: MADT Coaches Education Event – Wayzata High School. This event was top notch last year and this year should have even more depth of topics and a chance to learn from other coaches and industry experts. Build your personal strengths, manage your season better, and get inspired for choreography! This event is not to be missed. Get your registration in along with your general MADT membership dues. Online payments are quick and easy this year.  Costs this year include some great take home materials from Pro-Active Coaching.


October 6th: Choreography begins.  (1/3rd of your team max).  Dancers can get their music copies (finally)


October 10th:  The Minnesota Timberwolves are hosting a great and FREE mixer event for coaches to come and watch the brand new Twolves and talk about some great dance opportunities for your teams to perform at the target center this year.  Even if you have all your plans set for the year, come on by for some fun, food, and chat with other dance coaches!  The summer event was a blast – catching the “senior” dance team was an event not to be missed!  RSVP on this link, and check out the Cheer & Dance Mixer PDF invitation for details.


October 20th:  Practices begin!


November 1: MADT meeting and student LEAD convention.   Registration is underway for the fall student convention, sign up early or you may not get your first pick of classes!  This year, class sizes will be limited – so get in fast!  The fall membership meeting will start at 11am this year, so AM practice teams can make it.  Be sure you get the right times marked down!


We’re just days away from the 14/15 season!  I can’t wait to see what amazing things our dancers and community will do!  Get out and get involved, and we’ll see you on the dancefloor in just a few short weeks.
