By on October 29, 2017

UMBDT takes Chicago!

UMBDT takes Chicago, at the Chicago DanceSport Challenge!


Here’s our “Week at a Glance” for 10/29/17:

Some things for new members:

  • Fill out our mid-term check in! It takes 10 seconds, you can find it here.
  • If you don’t have a partner, put your name down on our partner search spreadsheet, which you can find here.
  • Get hyped for OSB, we’ve got less than three weeks to go! OSB runs Fri Nov 17th to Sunday Nov 19th and is 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…

Things for everyone:

  • Pick up your apparel! You can come by and get it Tuesday 2-4pm or Wednesday 2:30-6:30pm in our office, room 4344 on the 4th floor of the Union.
  • Pay your lesson costs if you’re on a letter team (A-C). See Lizzie’s email for more details.
  • Committee applications are open! If you’re interested in applying, click here. Committees are a great way to get involved in the behind-the-scenes running of the team.
    The application deadline is 11/10 at midnight.
  • Come to our tie-dye event, this Friday. Apparel is in, which means it’s time to utilize our white ballroom t-shirts. Join the board and ballroom house in tie-dyeing our apparel to look groovy at OSB (and maybe even get made fun of by Steve and Susan). If you’re interested in attending, email Peter so we can figure out how much dye to buy! (peterjh@umich.edu)
  • Payment deadline for Purdue is Wednesday Nov 8th. Venmo preferred, cash/check/card/paypal accepted.
  • Come dance at Glacier Hills! It’s this Thursday from 3:15-4:45pm. We need volunteers, so just email Anna (annoelle@umich.edu) if interested.
