SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 29TH
FINAL REMINDERS FOR DANCERS
PARADE REHEARSAL is at the studio THIS SUNDAY, November 23rd from 4-6:00 pm.
This is mandatory for the dancers who wish to be in the parade next Saturday, to learn the routines that we will perform in the parade with Ms. Kelly.
On the day of the parade, Saturday, November 29th, all dancers need to arrive at Sherwood Forest Mall BETWEEN 9:15-9:30 am.
The parade organizers have told us that no cars will be permitted in the marshaling area at the mall, except those registered with the parade, so you will have to park at the front or side of the mall and walk your dancer to meet us in the marshaling area. You will see us all gathered around our decorated vehicle!
The parade has made arrangements for a school bus to shuttle participants back to the mall after the reception! (Isn’t that great?) Our group of 30 dancers and 7 parent & staff volunteers will ALL travel back to Sherwood Forest Mall immediately following the completion of the parade, ALL TOGETHER. Please wait at Sherwood Forest Mall to pick up your dancer. I expect that we will be back at the Mall for pick up by 11:15 am, as we will all be loading onto the first school bus. It is really helpful for me, and much less chaotic if we can keep ALL of the dancers together, and ALL travel back to the mall together for pick up. Thank you for your understanding.
What will my dancer wear? Well, as of right now, it looks like it will be cold next Saturday; the forecast is mainly sunny and -2 degrees. On the positive side, anyone who participated last year can confirm that the coldest part is WAITING for the parade to start. Once we get moving & grooving, it doesn’t seem nearly as cold!
NLDC will be supplying (we will hand out these items at rehearsal):
- Matching stretchy gloves
- Santa hats
Dancers at the parade should wear:
- Black dance/yoga/jogging pants or leggings (with other layer(s) underneath)
- Black top – could be your NLDC jacket or any black sweater or jacket (with multiple layers underneath for warmth)
- Black, white, or red scarves
- And under their Santa hat: black, white or red head bands, earmuffs, tight fitting hats
We are all excited for this fun event! Thanks for participating!
