1/21/19 Week at a Glance

By on January 21, 2019

Hi team,

First and foremost, congratulations to everyone who participated in tryouts! I was blown away by the energy and passion in the mirror room on Saturday, it was so much fun to watch and see how much you have all improved since September. The results are out, so check your inbox if you tried out for emails from David about your new team placement.

  • Recruitment help needed! Our greatest asset is our wonderful current team members who welcome newbies and convey their infectious enthusiasm for dance! Winter semester recruitment mostly happens through word of mouth, so your participation is especially important 🙂
  • Here’s how you can help:Step 1: Share our Welcome Week events on Facebook and invite all your friends here.

    Step 2: Attend our welcome week events on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday (details below) to cheer on your friends performing their showcases and dance with the newcomers and tell them why ballroom is the best club on campus!

  • MichComp committee: It takes a village to put on an event as spectacular as MichComp, and our lovely Home Comp chair Anna is seeking some dedicated volunteers to assist with tech, logistics and advertising! You can find more info and sign-up here (the deadline to sign up is Monday 1/21 at 11.59pm)
  • Competitions this semester: Competition season is fast approaching so take note of the upcoming deadlines listed below. Look out for emails from Fabi for links for registration/rooms and rides. Returning members please note that OSU will not be at the usual mid-February time this year, so if you want to get a comp in before Arnold the two comps below are your only options 🙂
