October 2023 It’s been a beautiful autumn season! I love the fall colors and weather. I’m always sad to see September end, knowing what’s coming ... REMINDER: NO CLASSES OR TEAMS THIS WEEK: Harvest Break Oct 2-5 Everything resumes the week of Oct 9 • ORDERS Most of the Early Bird orders will be ready for the dancers to pick up when they return to class next week. The items on the final order will be coming in 2-3 weeks. ORDER DEADLINE EXTENDED THROUGH TODAY: Oct 2. Ladies Order Form Mens Order Form The items will be labeled with each dancer’s name, sorted by team, put into a team bag. The coaches will hand out the items that are in the team bag. NOTE: Special Orders shoes: These will take 8-12 weeks longer than the regular orders. • DANCING WITH THE STARS, Sat Nov 4, 7pm, Madison HS Gym. The Senior teams and the Special Needs team will be performing. Please come support this event! It is a benefit event for the Madison Education Foundation. More info to come. • CALIFORNIA TOUR: This is the year for our California Tour! It is open to dancers of all ages, and families are welcomed and encouraged to come along. If you are considering a family trip next summer, please think about joining us!. We’ll send a separate message with further details and a sign-up link. • June 9/10 – 15/16 • Tour is completely optional, no dancer is required to go. • We will form teams with the dancers going. They will practice during May, after the Spring Concert. • Dancers must be age 15 to go without a parent or adult relative. 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. PLEASE NOTE: Do not use the Band app, especially the “IBA MAIN”, to post something specific about your dancer, such as they can’t come to class. Text the coach directly for this kind of message. 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, 3:25 - 4:25, 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.
