CMS Dance Team Information CMS Dance Team Information Practices We will practice once a week during the summer and twice a week during the school year on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All practices will be held at a location TBA, but most likely at CMS. We will attend technique classes on Wednesday evenings—see more info. below. There will be extra practices prior to competition and basketball season. Camp We will be attending a UDA camp this year during either June or July. We will either join the Kahok Dance Team at their camp or attend a camp overnight at a college. There will be an out-of-pocket cost for attending camp. We will learn routines to use throughout basketball season as well as important dance and networking skills. Camp is mandatory for all dance members. No exceptions! Choreography We will have a choreographer attend a mandatory practice closer to competition season in November. The girls will learn both routines and have a break for lunch. This practice will be tentatively from 10-6 on a Saturday or Sunday. There may be more than one choreography practice on the weekend. Technique Classes Technique is mandatory. We will attend Turning Pointe in Maryville on Wednesday nights from 3:30-4:30. The cost of technique is $40 per month for 4 months. This will last on Wednesday evenings from September-January (January will be reserved for make-up days from holidays/snow days). Payments due the first practice of every month to Tatum and Brooke. Costs The approximate costs are explained on a separate page in this packet. Please look through these costs and make sure that you understand that there is financial obligation in order to be on the CMS Dance Team.
CMS Dance Team Information CMS Dance Team Information Fundraising Fundraising is a necessary and mandatory part of the CMS Dance Team. Money raised through fundraisers is used to pay for choreography, competition fees, our banquet, poms, apparel for school functions and competition, and any additional items needed throughout the season. It is your obligation to fundraise. Fundraising is in addition to the money for consumable items that you purchase for your child. Each dancer will have an account and an amount they must fundraise. Most of our fundraisers require your presence and you get a portion of the proceeds. Parent Obligations We completely understand the hectic schedule that comes with your child being involved in athletics. Therefore, we try to only schedule parent meetings once a month as needed to discuss upcoming events. We also communicate through monthly calendars and emails. Please read the calendars carefully so you are aware of the upcoming week‘s events. The calendars and other important information will also be uploaded to our dancewebsite. Games The Collinsville Middle School dancers perform at home boys’ and girls’ basketball games. These games are typically held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from November through January. Competitions Our team is a competition dance team. We will compete in at least 3 competitions this season. The dance team members willneed to understand the importance of making a commitment and working hard when you join a competitive team. We will take a bus to all competitions. All other dance team members will be counting on you to keep your commitment and work hard all season. Uniforms Uniforms and poms are provided to each dancer. Each dancer is responsible for their uniforms, keeping them clean and in good repair. Shoes, bodysuit, and other consumable items are paid for by the parents or with fundraising money.
