OCTOBER NEWSLETTER

It’s been a beautiful autumn season! I love the fall colors and weather. We hope you’ve enjoyed this week of Harvest Break. Next week all teams and classes will be back to their normal schedules. • CONGRATULATIONS! to Coach Elise and her husband Stephen Rich!! Lincoln Travis Rich was born on Sept 29, 7 lbs 2 oz. We love our growing IBA families! • ORDERS Many items have come in with more arriving through the next two weeks. The items will be at the studio for dancers to pick up. They will be sorted by team, and items will be labeled with dancers names. The coaches will hand out what is in the team bag. NOTE: Special Orders shoes: These will take 6-8 weeks longer than the regular orders. • WARM-UPS: Since we had to change styles this year, we didn’t have the sizing pieces in time for SOP. The Sizers will be at the studio all of next week. Dancers who already have their Senior team warm-ups are not required to get new ones. NOTE: We are going to allow ALL dancers (any age) to order a warm-up jacket this year!!! In the past we’ve kept it to just the Senior age dancers, but we talked with coaches and dancers and decided to change this. So - any dancer who wants to order a team jacket is welcome to!! The senior dancers are still required to have one, and it’s optional for all other ages. NOTE 2: For those who ordered warm-ups on the regular order form, we will transfer your size to this new order. If you try on and need to change sizes, let us know. NOTE 3: Girls leggings - we can no longer order the Nike leggings at a wholesale price. Girls who want to get leggings should purchase their own. They need to be solid black (no patterns or other colors). I’ve been told that Costco has some really good leggings for $15. We will refund the payment for those who ordered leggings. There are sizers for girls warm-up pants for the girls who would like to order those. *** ORDER WARM-UPS HERE: IBA Warm-Ups order form. Orders will close Sat Oct 15.

Please come support this event! It is a benefit event for the Madison Education Foundation. More info to come. BAND APP: Please make sure that you have your notifications turned on for your team - you can get a pop up or email. We are able to see how many view each posted message. Sometimes it has only been 5 or 6, with 25 not having seen it. We use this for important updates, so we want to make sure everyone is seeing the messages. Also, it’s been a great way for Moms to communicate within a team. I love it when you help answer each other’s questions! If you haven’t joined your team’s group yet, please go to the IBA MAIN group and scroll back to the posts on Aug 31. There are invitations for each team posted separately. MIDDLE SCHOOL BALLROOM Some of you with middle school age dancers have asked if you have missed the registration info. No you haven’t! We will be sending out registration info in late November. The schedule is confirmed with the MMS Admin: Weds, 3:30 - 4:30, starting in January. If you have a 5th or 6th grader, let me know if you'd like to get the registration info. We are so happy to have you all part of our IBA Family this year. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
