December 2017 Dancenews

Hi Workshop families!

The Christmas Parade is already here, Saturday Dec 9  at Charlotte High in Punta Gorda!  Drop off times are: Ovations and Company members 10:30AM, kids 7 & up please arrive at 11:15AM, 3-6 yrs please arrive by 11:45AM..  Be sure to drop off your child at the High School with us, then park at The Event Center, there will be a bus running back and forth for transportation.  The majority of our participants are anxious to dance down the parade, but we will also have a “FLOAT” decorated to fit the theme of the parade for small children to ride in!   Chaperones, please wear FDW shirts (available at studio for $15-$22) & FDW Colors Red, Black and White!  Parents: PLEASE DROP OFF REFRESHMENTS AT THE STUDIO THIS WEEK.  The refreshments will be waiting for us at the end of the parade route at The Event Center, so we will NOT be able to take them on the truck.    The Chamber assigned us group number 39.   The Florida Dance Company will be dressed in  RED.  We are also looking for wagons for chaperones to store water in along the parade route.  If you have one please let us know or bring with you ☺  Thank you!

Ovations and our Florida Dance Company had a fantastic time kicking off the holiday season performing at the Veteran’s Parade, and Deans South of the Border!  We are looking forward to the parade and Guest performing in the Mistletoe Ball, fundraiser for the Homeless Coalition of Charlotte County.

Don’t miss our Ovations Competition Team Showcase! Come see all our soloists, duo/trios and groups on stage before the competition season starts!  This fundraising event for our team will help to decrease the cost of entry fees for our families, while giving our dancers the chance to rehearse on stage during the polishing process!  Please come help support and cheer on the team!  January 6th at CPAC! Tickets $15 in advance, $18 at the door! Purchase tickets in studio, or online here:
