You are welcome to stay with family and friends in the area, arrange your own lodging, or book in the team hotel. Hotels: This is the hold up on this message. We have been working with the area hotels, but there is a large event in Salt Lake (NBA Allstar something) which has overflowed into these hotels. We secured a group reservation for our staff and the van groups, but no hotel had a large number of rooms available. So we have small blocks reserved at these hotels. You may find lower rates online. So, please self book your hotels. I am so sorry to those of you who asked about this and I told you we were getting one big group block. We have been working on it since early January. The van group will be staying in the Layton TownPlace Suites. We have some rooms blocked at these Layton hotels at these rates: You can call and reserve rooms in your own names in the IBA block, the deadline to reserve is Sunday Feb 12. Of course you are welcome to book at any other area hotel. Hampton Inn: 3 Doubles. $149. 801-775-8800. Holiday Inn Express: 4 Doubles, 10 Kings. $149.

Since the event is now two days, the Junior dancers do not need to stay overnight on Friday. Chaperones/Drivers: We will need drivers for the Junior vans, and drivers/chaperones for the Senior team vans and hotel. Please reply to this message or text me if you are willing to be a driver and/or chaperone. We would cover the entry fee to the competition and meals.
