Attached you will find the performance schedule for Saturday. Call time for performers is 6:00pm. We still need parents to volunteer for shifts throughout the day. Remember this is another fundraiser for us as well as band. Please find the sign up genius in the blog below.
Homecoming Pep Rally
Here is the video from today’s Pep Rally! Everyone did a fantastic job!!
What a great week on Dance Team last week! Friday night we cheered the Warriors on to a big win at Friday night's football game against Northwood High (34-8) and got a chance to see Northwood's half time show which was really fun! Then on Saturday, the WHS Entertainment Corps did really well at their first field show competition of the season! 1st in the Division, High Percussion, and Tournament Champions! Woot-Woot! The other schools looked really good as well so it should be a great, competitive season :)
What's on the agenda for this week?? A LOT! Read below:
Wednesday, 10/18 - Band Spectacular - This is a great opportunity to come see the field show at a local stadium plus you will be able to view the performances from the other Irvine schools. The details were sent out on the EC Remind (both parents and kids) so you can see the details as far as call time there. I also put it in the detail section for the event on the dance team calendar.
Friday, 10/20 - Homecoming Game - Homecoming is finally here! The EC will not perform their half time show this week as the will be doing the homecoming ceremony which includes skits put together by the students for each class (freshman, sophomore, juniors, and seniors) plus the unveiling of the homecoming king and queen! Lots of fun!! Even though, we are not performing the half time show, the EC will still be performing in the stands during the game. Captains will let the team know what to wear so if your student is unsure, have them check with their captains.
Saturday 10/21 - Small Lyrical Audition - Small lyrical choreographer will be coming this Saturday from 10am-3pm. If the girls want to audition they must be there, choreographer will audition girls at beginning, if they make it they stay if they don’t they can leave.
Saturday 10/21 - 10/22 - SI Convention San Diego - 6 Hip Hop Dancers have signed up to attend this awesome event! We are working on transportation and details regarding pick up/drop off for the students will be communicated to those going separately.
IIFT - IT'S ALMOST HERE!
The big event is fast approaching (Yikes!) and we still need LOTS of help! Each parent of a performer is expected to work at least 1 shift but are encouraged to work more than 1 if they can. This event is a great fundraiser for the EC but of course is not possible without the help of volunteers!!! The sign up genius links have all been posted on the EC Facebook page but I am also listing them here below.
http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4ca4ab2ca64-iift5 - Volunteer Shifts Daytime before 5pm
http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4ca4ab2ca64-iift6 - Volunteer Shifts Nighttime after 5pm
http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080a4ca4ab2ca64-iift7 - Concessions donations
Also, don't forget to turn in your pre-sale ticket money that was sent home with your student!
Lastly, if your student is on Dance Team and part of the EC, you are HIGHLY, HIGHLY encouraged to join the Remind101 for Band Parents, Dance Parents AND to like the Entertainment Corps FB page, WHS Dance Team FB page. This is where all of the latest updates, times, details, pictures, etc. are shared. We will try to push out information as best we can but the best way to get information is "direct from the horses mouth" 🤗 The links for everything are below:

We decided to start a blog to help keep everyone update on the happenings on Dance Team! No more searching through your inbox trying to remember who sent you that email or when that competition was. Everything can be found on this website! Also, every post is automatically shared on our Facebook page so make sure you have "liked" it to stay informed!
We have a couple of updates to share:
Team Apparel - The vendor has informed us that the warm-ups are almost done 🙏 and will ship this week (woot-woot!) The vendor also said the jersey's were on back order BUT have finally arrived and are currently being worked on. We should have everything really soon! 🤞
SI (Hip Hop Convention) in San Diego 10/21-10/22 - This convention is a 2 day convention and the cost is only $65 for both days! A really great opportunity for the dancers to learn from some amazing teachers. Be on the look out for a sign-up genius to help in the transportation of students both there and back. Once we have a more definitive number on who is going, we will post that ASAP!
Entertainment Corps update (Dance Team only) - Our first field show is this Saturday and we are ready to celebrate Dia de los Muertos in style! If you haven't yet had a chance to see the show at one of the recent football games, come support your dancer and come to this competition! It looks really good on the field with the beautiful costumes and props! The team has worked so hard on this and could really use a great cheering section!! Also, the Entertainment Corps will be showing their school spirit while cheering our football team to victory at this Friday's away game! Should be lots of fun to show Northwood our Warrior Pride!
IIFT - What is IIFT?? IIFT is the Entertainment Corps main fundraiser. It is a field show competition we host along with Irvine High School. As you can imagine, it won't work itself so we definitely need volunteers! They are finalizing the work shifts as well as the donations so I will be sharing the sign up genius forms within the next few days! Also, each student is expected to sell at least 2 pre-sale tickets to this competition and while we are not "competing" this day, we will be performing so a ticket will be required to watch your dancer. Make it a family affair and work a shift in the afternoon and support the WHS EC in the evening while enjoying a carmel apple from our Carmel Apple station!!
Team Fundraiser - We are closing in our goal for our fall fundraiser. Remember, this fundraiser could eliminate the need to do additional fundraising....If we do not raise enough funds, we have no other choice but to do more fundraising 😭. Be sure to share the fundraiser on Facebook or send to your family and friends.
We have such a great group of dancers this year! They have been working so hard on all of their competition pieces, field show, and pep rally dances....Be sure to tell them how proud you are of them and come and support them!
We are many, we are one, we are WARRIORS!!!
