T-minus 2 weeks ’till Michcomp! The best competition of the year is coming up soon. Why is it the best? It’s right here in town! Your friends and family can come watch! Mark Schlissel is going to come dance newcomer quickstep! Okay maybe only 2/3 of those things are true, but you’ll have to register and come to find out.
Oh that’s right — you have to register to go to Michcomp. Which odds are you haven’t, so register by March 16th otherwise you’ll have to pay the late registration fee. While you’re at it, click here to get a shoutout in the program. Shoutouts aren’t just for parents to post embarrassing baby photos — you can get one for your partner, your mentor/mentee, or friend!
March 24th draws near, so does our fundraising progress: with over $1,600 of our $2,000 fundraising goal met! Thank you to all friends and family of the team who have donated, we would not be able to do this without you.
To finally hit our goal, tell your friends/family about how their donation can make a huge impact in helping us throw an awesome comp, either through direct donation or by buying a shout-out.
Michcomp is not possible without the wonderful dancers of all other schools coming to visit, and they need a place to stay! Even if you can only house one or two people, every spot makes a difference. Sign ups for housing are here. PLEASE SIGN UP FOR HOUSING ASAP BY IF YOU ARE PHYSICALLY ABLE!
Lastly, we’re gauging interest for a combination lesson w/ Polarity. If you’re interested in a potential class on April 9th or 16th, please fill out this interest form.
