Is it November already?????? This month always seems to sneak up on me. Here we go into the dance season! We have at least one major event every month for the rest of the dance year. We have our first big event this month, and the first competition next month. THIS MONTH’S MAIN EVENT: Dancing with the Stars, This Sat, Nov 5, Madison HS Main Gym. 7:00 pm. Only the Senior teams and Silver/Gold Lift teams are performing in this event. But we hope all our IBA families will come in support!! This is a fundraiser for the Madison Education Foundation. The stars, partners, and coaches have spent a lot of hours perfecting their routines and it will be a great show! Admission: $5/person; $20 family (living in same household) Tickets: at the door or pre-purchase here: DWTS Tickets.

It is a new format, and now has all the newsletters and emailed info in an easy-to-find format. This is the best source to find the info you need. • BAND APP: One more reminder about this! We have used this many many times now to notify a team of a cancellation or a change. Please make sure that you are on your dancer’s team list. Also make sure that you have the notifications turned on so that you get a pop-up message when something is posted. There are also lists for lift and tech classes. Many thanks to those parents who are making good use of this app to communicate with each other. We can see who sees the messages, and often only a few on a team have read the message. Please try to watch for your notifications. If you have joined the IBA MAIN group, you can find the links to each team/class if you scroll back to the posts on Aug 31. If you’re not able to find your team, let me know and we’ll get an invite sent to you. • COACH CONTACT INFO: I’ve received questions of how to contact a coach. You can contact them via the Band app (there is direct messaging), or you can text/call/email. Their contact email is on the bottom of every email I send and also on the website. idahoballroomacademy.com NEXT MONTH: • CHRISTMAS CLASSIC: SAT, DECEMBER 3. Madison Junior High School.
