Updated Save the Dates

Greetings All-Stars and Families,

Attached is an updated Save the Dates for you.

The All-Star Revue was changed to March 4th due to Superbowl happening on our original date.

The Warrior Basketball Game is Tuesday, January 23rd. We will be sending the ticket link as soon as we receive it. Please let us know how many tickets you plan on purchasing so we can anticipate the needs before we open it to the general studio.  (FYI-We choose a Tuesday night game because it was half the price of the weekend games.) 

We currently have the following reserved:

Lower Level Corner (12 available) $210

Club 200 Sideline (23 available)  $90

Club 200 Corner/Baseline (210 available) $80

•We are performing at the Pacifics Baseball game on Friday, August 25th at 7:05pm.  Here is the ticket link for you to purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $10 which is $5 off the regular ticket price. (Dancers do not need tickets.) Dancers will arrive at 5:30pm.

PACIFICSTICKETS      L2D is the discount code

  • All-Star practices will begin onThursday 8/10. Please see the attached schedule for All-Star Choreography Weeks.  It is very important that you attend all rehearsals, although we understand that some of the initial dates may still conflict with your summer vacation plans.

    •Attached is the All-Star Fall practice schedule.

    •The studio’s Fall Schedule and All-Star competition season dates will be available soon.

    Thursday 8/24, Saturday 8/26, Sunday 8/27, and Monday 8/28 are the choreography workshop dates with Melia Barnes (Mel B) and Sammy Helms.  We are happy to have Mel and Sammy back to choreograph and teach you competition routines. Most of you know, the nations’ top dance studios hire outside choreographers to broaden the knowledge of their dancers as well as provide their dancers with exposure to highly skilled working dance professionals. These professional choreographers also offer an edge in the competition circuit. With 6 competition routines designed just for us, we are bringing cutting edge choreography and training to the All-Stars. Mel B and Sammy have choreographed for Wayne Brady, T-Boz of TLC, Suave Company, Oscar Meyer and one of the first and largest national flash mobs in the country. They have danced with Kanye West, Ludacris, and Cirque du Soliel.  The cost for the workshop is $295 per All-Star and is due by Thursday August 10th.

    All-Star Fitness
    New this season All-Stars will have one hour a week training with fitness guru Jillian Shay.  Each dancer will be required to bring a yoga mat and purchase their own band.  (More details forthcoming)

    All-Star Gear
    We will be ordering new all star team shirts listing the dancers names on the back. Please let us know ASAP if you have decided to withdraw from participation.

    We will also be ordering warm-up sample sizes for our new All-Stars and returning All-Stars may order what needs to be replaced. If returning All-Stars are ordering new items, please think about donating your old items in the event someone would like to use them. All other All-Star gear (bags, jewelry, t-shirts etc) will be ordered once everyone is sized. Any moms or dads who would like to order a shirt, please let us know.

    Tap Team
    Ashley will be teaching tap on Thursdays during the Fall.  You must register for the class if you wish to be part of the tap dance number during competition season.  The Fall semester dance will be modified for competition.

    Attendance & Late Arrivals
    Per our All-Star agreement, we will only be allowing a maximum of 3 unexcused absences each semester (this is 3 absences total from any scheduled class/practice).  You must communicate with us when dancers have conflicts or if they are ill. It is very hard on other team members and on your instructors to constantly rework formations and to not be able to practice group portions of dances because we are missing dancers. We may need to adjust choreography if attendance becomes an issue.  We also need everyone to arrive on time in the appropriate attire.

    Solos, Duos, Trios
    Many of you have indicated interest in competing this year.  Please let us know when you are ready to get started on choreography.  Many instructors are available to begin now.

    We look forward to a fun and exciting year of dance with all of you. Go All-Stars!

P.S.- L2D is expanding and the new studios will be open this Fall!

Thank you,

Tara and Coaching Staff
