MichComp 2019!

Hi team,

Thank you so much for all of your hard work both on and off the dance floor to ensure MichComp was a success! The setup, competition, and breakdown all went beautifully smoothly. I hope you all had as much fun as I did yesterday, it was great seeing you all perform for your family and friends! Shoutout to Anna for her excellent planning over the past months and for pulling off one of the most organized MichComps in recent history. The results are now available on the comp website here.

Here’s this week’s announcements:

  • Dance Mix!!! While many of you may be resting and catching up with other obligations this week, A-team is hard at work preparing a Latin formation for Dance Mix this Friday.  Check out the Facebook event here for more details. Tickets usually sell out a few days before the show (last year it was the Tuesday before), so if you’d like to come I strongly recommend you buy your ticket in advance. You can buy your ticket at this link, from MUTO in the League, or at the posting wall March 25th-28th 10.30am-4.00pm. Please note that Studio A in DTS will be closed all week for Dance Mix practice.

Dance Mix 2018!

  • Elections: Our end of semester party will be on Friday April 26th, during which we’ll celebrate the past year, say farewell to our beloved seniors, and vote for a new executive board for the coming year. More info on how to apply for a board position will follow closer to the time, but if you’re interested in running for a board position, or think you might possibly be interested, there will be an informal info session/office hour with me and some other board members this Wednesday in League Room B. Swing by for a few minutes to find out more about what being on the exec board entails and get your questions about board answered by some experts!
