October News and Updates

Happy Choreo Season!  Hopefully you are enjoying the last few minutes of free time before the season kicks in on Monday.  I for one will be spending my first day of the season in New York for my real job, and will be living the mantra of being in two places at once.  Ya know, ’cause dance coaches always seem to make it work.  Never a dull moment for anyone in the dance team world.  While the ink is drying on those formations, there are a lot of upcoming events to take note of.  Here’s the rundown:



TCP52 is having a guest clinic with Jason Myhre on November 16th and 17th.  He will be teaching the tricks of the trade for professional dance auditions.  A cool glimpse into that world, or a chance to see if you might have a career in your future. Check out the handout here: TCPWORKSHOP



Rules books are out for the next 2 year cycle, and the rules meeting is now open on the coaches clipboard section of their website.  Be sure to get your training done and those emergency action plans filed.  Dancers and parents need to get those MSHSL forms and physicals taken care of before your first practice on Monday or you can’t practice.  (Procrastinators beware)  For everyone, the league puts out a great semi-annual bulletin, which can be seen at http://issuu.com/howardwvoigt/docs/complete_fall_2013_bulletin



The coaches’ association has sent out their invites to the annual student leadership convention which will be at Chaska High School on November 2nd.  The fall coaches meeting will also take place that day.  Register for the event here: http://madtcoaches.net/event/madt-fall-convention/ or check out the Brochure.  Invitational registration begins online on Monday on the MADT website as well.
