We were so proud of our dancers in the Civic Show!! It was a strong start to the performance season. Hope you all enjoyed the show and watching your dancers. General reminders: - Please inform your coach if your dancer will not be coming to class. - Dancers should change their wet shoes in the hallway at the benches before going into the studios. - When posting on Band, remember to post team specific questions to the team group, not the IBA Main group. Also, please use Direct Messaging or Texting when contacting the coach about something specific to your dancer. All the coach’s contact info is at the bottom of these email messages.

• March 23-25. Gem State Classic & National Show Dance Championships, Thunder Ridge High School, Idaho Falls. Please note that the Junior syllabus and open events are on Thursday. In past years these Jr events have been on Saturday, but have been moved. Their team events are still on Friday. Thurs: Pre-Teens/Pre-Junior Team & Individual (Syllabus and Open), Junior Syllabus and Open, Individual Cabaret Fri: Junior and Senior Teams. Team Match. Sat: Youth (Senior) Syllabus and Open. • March 27-30 (new date), Team Pictures: A schedule for each team will be sent as this nears. No regular classes this week. The pictures will be taken at the studio. We will try to do the team pictures on the regular day the teams meets. April 14, Madison Middle School Show 11:00, 1:00. The Comp Team and Coco lift will be in both shows. All other teams will be in just one of the shows, TBA. NOTE: this might be moved to April 7. Some families have let me know that they will out of town on the 14th, taking an extended week of Spring Break. I haven’t heard back from the school about switching to April 7th yet, so just a heads up about the possible change.

April 29, Spring Concert: All day, Madison HS Auditorium. This is a BIG day for the dancers. There will be 3 shows in the afternoon/evening, and also stage practices and a full company finale rehearsal.

June 26-29. IBA Summer Camp. This is also a problem date - there is one stake girls camp and one stake trek that week. We are normally on top of one stake event (impossible to avoid completely), but we hate to be on top of two of them. Shawn is talking to the Jr Hight about two other possible dates: June 19-22, or July 5-8. We know that there is NO PERFECT DATE, but we will try to find the one with the fewest conflicts. Stay tuned…

That’s it for now - so happy to have each of you in our IBA Family

Have a wonderful month! Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions. Janie Fisher Director, Idaho Ballroom Academy 208-201-6366
