Summer News and Notes

Summertiiiiiiime and the feelings easy……  or sweaty in an “air-conditioned” gym during boot camp.  Whichever.


I hope everyone is enjoying the break from school and getting geared up with your new teams for 16-17.  This is such a fun time when there isn’t the pressure of a competition routine – but time to get back to basics, have some fun, and make progress on those goals far from the judges eyes.  A few news items for the month…..


Summer No-Contact Week:  A much needed no-contact period is scheduled from Saturday July 2nd to Friday July 8th.  What’s no contact?  No. Contact.  No practice, but also – nothing else.  Gives all those over-scheduled families a chance to take a break from all sports oriented events for a while and just chill-out.  Enjoy it!


Dance Camps:  Summer dance camp season is upon us as well here in MN – keep an eye on twitter and facebook for all those fun camp pictures.  If you’re team’s going to or hosting an event – its a good time to make sure you’re signed up and paid so no one has to track you down!


16-17 Season Planning:  Stay tuned for an updated competition schedule coming in early July as I reboot the website for another season.  Once that’s up and you don’t see your event – email or message me to get your invite or conference added.  In the meantime, get the vision rolling by checking out The Line Up’s new catalogs and webstore for the year, and Satin Stitches has a bunch of new web-styles to check out – so head on over and see what’s new.  Dance video hounds can also keep up with quite a bit of studio action over on the Dance Alliance Network’s YouTube page.  Never a dull moment even off-season!
