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!!!
