A-team are coming soon to a blue bus near you! 

 

Here’s our last WAG for the semester! Thanks so much to everyone who came out to celebrate our semester together last night at EOS. I can’t believe we have come to the end of the semester already, but I am thankful for all of the fun memories and excited to see what next semester has in store for our team.

  • Winter recruitment/showcase sign up! If you’re interested in performing a showcase as part of our winter recruitment efforts, you can sign up here! Details for all our winter recruitment events can be found in the team calendar here.
  • Ballroom Club Holiday Party: The Ballroom Dance Club is hosting a holiday party this upcoming Sunday! Celebrate the most wonderful time of the year dancing with friends 🙂
  • DTS opening: DTS is only open Monday and Thursday this week. DTS opening for the remainder of 2018 will be announced in the team Facebook group.
  • Save the date! Tryouts will be Saturday, January 19th! A sign-up form and more details will be sent out early next semester, but now is a great time to start looking for a partner to tryout with.
  • Mark your calendars for the Arnold… The Arnold Ballroom classic, the sister competition to OSB, will be March 2nd-3rd, which is the first Saturday and Sunday of spring break. Not only is this competition as big as OSB, the points we earn from Arnold add on to our next OSB score, thus making it essential for defending our title. Be sure to save the date so you can dance for the Terminator himself, who makes an appearance every year in the ballroom!!!
