The Sleepy Team® after MSU

Congratulations to everyone who competed at MSU! It was a strong start to the competition season, with most of the finals having a majority of Michigan couples in it. Until the next comp, here’s what we’ve got going on this week.

Things for new members: We’re glad you’ve decided to come learn how to dance with us! Check out the lessons on Sat/Mon as well as the guided practices on Thursday, if you haven’t been going already.

Things for everyone: 

  • Apparel is now open for orders!! Place your order by Sunday, Feb 11th. Track jackets may be phased out so yours might not have the white piping (I’ll contact you if that’s true). Get a white tank or t-shirt if you want to tie-dye it later. Tanks and sweatpants are unisex sizes so ladies may want to size down. The Faces of #Neil Calendar is a Fundraising Committee effort so buy one to support the team (Michcomp, driving subsidies, etc.). Contact Anna with any questions 🙂
  • Ballroom Buddies is happening again this semester, so sign up to get matched with a new friend! Everyone will be paired up with someone on the team based on their interests and experience on the team (so newcomers will be paired with upper-level members). We encourage ballroom buddy pairs to go to social events or grab brunch to get to know each other, but it’s really up to you. Fill out this form (https://goo.gl/forms/27BEHo0I94u7XTey1) by Sunday, Feb. 11th to participate.
  • Fill out this 10-second family & friends info form! Why? Because running Michcomp costs ~$15,000, and we can’t pay for it with memes. Therefor, we’re asking for donations from people who support the team (don’t your parents love seeing you dance??). You don’t even have to ask anyone for a donation, we’ll do it for you! Fill out the form please 🙂
  • A-C team people please pay your lesson fees! Pre-C can pay their fees at the end of the semester.
  • Save the date of March 30th for Dance Mix!!! It’s your favorite spectacular end of year dance show, our formation team will be performing again this year! Last year’s show was sold out with thousands of people filling the Power Center, so don’t miss out on an evening of performances from UofM’s best dance groups.
