Saturday, Sept. 17, IBA Studio • NEW PARENTS MEETING: 10:00 am This is for all parents who are new to IBA. Please make every effort to attend.

We will record this meeting and send you the link if you are not able to come. • S.O.P. (Sizing, Order, Payments): 11 - 2pm. In order to spread out the crowd, we ask you to come according to the following schedule (by last name): A-F 11 - 12 pm G-M 12 - 1 pm N-Z 1 - 2 pm If you are unable to come during the designated hour, that’s okay. But it will be very helpful if you do try to come according to this schedule if you are able. • MAKE-UP SOP DAY: Mon Sept 19, 7-9 pm. If you are not able to come on Saturday, you can come the next Monday. If you can’t come then, please contact me and we’ll set up another time. 1. SIZING & ORDERING
Please open this form that lists what is required for each team.
Many items will be available for purchase on Saturday. We are trying to reduce the time that it takes to order, sort, and distribute so the dancers can have their gear sooner. We have made our best guesstimate of how many items to order. We may run out of some things, or have way too many of others. All items can be ordered on the online order form. Please referred to the TEAM GEAR page to know what is required for your dancer (attached). AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE: (While stock lasts) GENERAL • Duffel Bags • Cinch Backpacks • Hoodies • Shoe Brushes GIRLS • Team Shirts: PT, Jr, Sr • fishnets • black trunks • nude leos • black leos for syllabus • eyelashes & glue • some shoes in various sizes BOYS • Team Shirts: PT, Jr, Sr • Biker Shorts • Latin pants. Many but not all sizes in stock. They will be measured for hems. NEED TO BE ORDERED: Sizers for the apparel items will be at SOP. • Shoes: there will be a sizing stock for trying on, and some new shoes to purchase. There are many pairs of used shoes. • Swing shoes: for the teams who are wearing them this year. • Sr. Team Warm-Ups: there will be sizing pieces to try on. • black syllabus skirts • Syllabus shirts w/ zip. (We highly recommend these). • Tux Shirts • Earrings • Make-up Kits • Girls Lift Leos, boy’s lift shirts (shirts might not arrive in time). • WHICH DANCERS SHOULD COME: Not all dancers need to come to the S.O.P day, only some of them. The dancers will be measured for costumes in their classes by the seamstresses who are actually altering or sewing their costumes. They will not be measured for costumes on Saturday. BOYS Pre-teen & Pre-Jr boys: only need a t-shirt. If you can eyeball their size, they don’t need to come. Junior boys: need to size dance shoes and Latin pants. Returning Jr boys don’t need to come unless they’ve outgrown something. New Senior dancers: need to be sized for warm-ups and senior shirts, and boys shoes if they have outgrown them (same shoes as juniors). Returning Seniors: Only those who have outgrown or need new items need to come. GIRLS Pre-teen girls : need to come to size shoes, shirts, and leos. Pre-Junior girls: they need fishnets. Girls can come for sizing, or moms can determine it from the sizing chart. New Junior girls: come for Jr Shoe sizing (2.5” heel), Jr shirt. If their PT red shirt still fits, they don’t need to get a new one. Returning Jr girls: only those who have outgrown or need new items need to come. New Senior girls: all senior girls on these teams will need Sr. Latin Sandals (3" heel), smooth/standard shoes, and the Sr. team shirts and warm-ups. Returning Senior girls: Only those who have outgrown or need new items need to come. • ORDER FORMS For items that need to be ordered, these are the online order forms. Please do not submit an order until you have sized your dancer. Ladies Order Form Mens Order Form • USED ITEMS: There will be a table of used items for sale. There are several pair of used shoes available for $15-$25. There are also a few Latin pants, black skirts and team shirts available. We do not keep a list of what sizes there are, so you just have to come look through the table if you are hoping to get a used item. If you want to sell your shoes or shirts or Latin pants that have been outgrown but are still in good condition, please clearly label them with your name and asking price. You can drop these off at the New Studio on Friday between 3 - 6pm, or in the morning before SOP begins. The payments for these items will be put into an envelope with your name and can be picked up at the end of SOP day, or will be sent home with your dancer the next week. Not all items sell, so if yours doesn’t sell, you can pick it up or leave it for next year. • YARD SALE: We will also have a table of "yard sale" items. These are things like team clothing in styles that we no longer use, extras of items that we don't need, fabrics, etc. There will be some shoes on this table that would be good for practice shoes to be worn in classes, but are not for performances as they are a different style. 2. PAYMENTS There will be a separate email with all the financial details. Shar-a-Lynn Randall and helpers will be at SOP DAY to meet with each parent to set up or collect the payments. She has prepared a spreadsheet for each dancer/family with the totals all prepared, figuring in any discounts, scholarships, trades, or credits. If you aren’t able to come on Saturday, you can call or e-mail Shar-a-lynn to set up a time to meet (or just phone call) to set up or make your payments.
