RETURNING PARENTS - Much of the following info will be “old news” to you. We know that you know the ropes, but are including this information for everyone as a reminder. • TEAM INFO/COSTS: More detailed financial info along with the payment plan form and the bank transfer forms will come with a separate SOP Detail message.




• CALENDAR: Attached. Some dates are not yet confirmed, but we’ve included them so you can pencil them in your calendars.


• WEBSITE: idahoballroomacademy.com Please take a minute to look through it and bookmark it. It is currently undergoing a re-design, so not all info is there yet. This is a central source of information so you don't have to look back through your email inbox to find details. We will still be using email on a regular basis for communication but hope that you will find this website to be a valuable tool. • KEY CLUB: This is for couples who are competing and need access to the studio floors for practice and/or lessons outside of regular studio hours. The cost is $40/semester/couple. Sign up here: IBA KEY CLUB.

• GROUP MESSAGING: We will be using the app BAND for group messaging this year. Please join both the IBA MAIN group, and then find the post that has the link to your dancer’s team group. If you have trouble joining, please message me and I’ll text you an invite.
