Hi team,

Here’s this week’s announcements!

-128Days -13Hours -58Minutes -21Seconds
  • Get hype for OSB, we’ve got less than four weeks to go! The Ohio Star Ball is coming up quickly (Nov 17th-Nov 18th) and it’s the most action packed, fun weekend of dancing and camaraderie you’ve ever seen. Ask some older team members for their favorite OSB stories and you’ll quickly discover why it’s the highlight of the semester! Keep an eye out for an email from Fabi this week for details about how to sign up…

  • Partner Search: Speaking of OSB, we’ll be holding another guided partner search this Tuesday for the last part of newcomer lesson in the CCRB (10.30-11pm). If you’re searching for a partner for OSB, you can also post your info on this spreadsheet to let other team members know you’re looking. Please note that entering your details on the spreadsheet doesn’t mean we will find you a partner, it’s your responsibility to use the sheet to contact potential partners 🙂
  • DTS info session make-up: If you’re new to the team and missed our first DTS/competition info session, we’re holding a make-up session this week on Wednesday 9.30-10.30pm. This will be held at Dance Theatre Studio, 713 North University Avenue (near Panera). You can find a map here. Questions? Contact our practice coordinator Corey at cgkflynn@umich.edu
  • Upcoming payment deadlines: If you’re attending Purdue, Wisconsin or the competition seminar, don’t be a jerk and make our lovely treasurer Clara hunt you down! Here are the payment deadlines for these events:
    • Purdue registration: October 24th
    • Competition seminar: October 24th
    • Wisconsin registration: November 7th

  • November party theme: The people have spoken, and our party on November 3rd will have a classy Masquerade theme! More details to follow next week, but start planning your costume now 🙂
