2018 Showcase Information

Dear Company Members & Parents;

A decision has been made regarding our 2018 Company Showcase; there will be TWO separate shows on Saturday March 3, 2018 with a snow date of Sunday, March 4, 2018 at Fitchburg High School.

Show 1 will be at 1:00pm and will showcase ALL of Miss Kiera’s Companies and routines, Mini Company (Miss Brittany), Miss Kayla’s Tap routine and Miss Brianna’s Arco routine. There will be 36 routines in Show 1.

Show 2 will be at 4:30pm and will showcase ALL of Miss Tanya’s companies and routines, Miss Kayla’s tap routine, Petite Company (Miss Brianna) and Miss Brianna’s Arco routine. There will be 46 routines in Show 2.

We do have some company members that cross over to other companies which could create a problem for family and friends to see all routines in one show which is why some routines are being performed in both shows to resolve this issue. We have done our best to schedule routines that are in both shows either in the second half of Show 1 or the first half of Show 2. Some company members will have quick changes as a result of having two separate shows, but we felt that this would be better than having one show that would be 4 hours and 30 minutes and this also allows all soloists to perform their routines. *Each show will have a 15 minute intermission.

The following routines will be performed in BOTH shows:
Nothing Holding Me Back – Tap - Miss Kayla
Ladies Do It Better – Sapphire Hip Hop Company – Miss Kiera
What’s Holding Us Back – Junior Blue Company - Miss Kiera
Beasts of the East – Diamond Company - Miss Tanya
Till This Day – Teen Red Company - Miss Tanya
Too Many Fish –Arco – Miss Brianna
The Visitors – Junior Red Company, Teen Red Company & Senior Company - Miss Tanya

Showcase tickets will be distributed to all Company Members, via mailbox, by the end of January 2018. This event is MANDATORY for ALL COMPNAY MEMBERS, as stated in your team contract. EACH company will be required to sell a Minimum of FIVE tickets each, with the exception of parents that have three children on company. The first and second company member must sell five tickets each, but the third child will only have to sell two tickets. Each Company Member will receive 10 tickets in an envelope (7 adults and 3 children) and ONE FREE ticket for one parent to use to gain entrance into the auditorium and a hot pink Company Member Auditorium Pass to watch their show only. If a company member would like to attend a show other than their own, they will be required to purchase a MTSD $5.00 student discount ticket. The show that would be considered the Company Members FREE ticket would be the one that their main Company is in. For example if you are on Miss Kiera’s Teen Blue Company, but also on Miss Tanya’s Diamond Company, your main team would be Teen Blue and that would be the show you would receive the free ticket for. For students that have cross over routines and may only perform one or two routines in the other show would also be required to purchase a MTSD $5.00 student discount ticket to enter the auditorium if you would like to see the show. If you are only going to perform the routine and not enter the auditorium you will not be required to purchase the additional ticket. If a company parent has children in both shows, not including routines that will perform in both shows you will receive an additional free ticket. A discounted ticket will be available for company parents only (not family & friends) that would like to attend both shows. The discounted ticket price is $5.00.

You may return the tickets that you do not sell or exchange for other tickets at the front counter. All ticket sales are cash or check ONLY, NO Credit Cards please. There are NO refunds for tickets. All ticket monies and unused tickets must be returned to the studio no later than Monday, February 26th 2018. If tickets are not sold and returned by the due date, a $50.00 fee will be added to your account for the mandatory 5 tickets and other fees will be charged for any tickets that were not returned. For example; if you do not return or sell the 5 mandatory you will be charged for ALL 10 tickets that were given out. If you need more tickets feel free to ask at the front counter.

There will be a discount ticket rate of $5.00 for Miss Tanya’s School of Dance Students that ARE CURRENTLY enrolled in the dance program. The discount student ticket will NOT count toward the Mandatory Five tickets that each company member is required to sell. The student discount ticket can only be purchased in ADVANCE ONLY through the studio at the front desk. All ticket sales are cash or check ONLY, NO Credit Cards please. There are NO refunds for tickets. Ticket prices are as follows: Advance purchase $10.00 per ticket for adults and $8.00 for children 3 years - 12 years old. Door price - $15.00 per ticket for adults and $12.00 for children 3 years - 12 years old. Children under the age of 3yrs are FREE. NO student discount tickets will be sold at the door.

Please keep the dressing area clean. No Food or sports drinks are allowed in the dressing areas. Water only please!! You may eat in the front lobby of the school only. We will have three dressing areas that Company members will be assigned to and two small rooms for quick changes and one room for Dylan. Please label all of your costumes, accessories and shoes with your name, as things get very hectic backstage and this will help to prevent items getting lost. Company members may go into the auditorium between routines to cheer each other on, but please do not get up or sit down during a performance. Company Members Please Take Note: there is no sitting allowed on the side stairs of the stage and also the carpeted area in front of the stage. Be courteous of people around you and make sure that you have enough time to be ready for your next routine as in the old saying “The Show Must Go On”.

A schedule of each show is attached to this notice. Please review carefully for spelling errors and also make sure that you have a minimum of 3 routines between the next for costume changes. If a company member only has 2 routines please let the front counter staff know ASAP. We look forward to showcasing all of the wonderful talent at Miss Tanya’s School of Dance and we are so excited to witness the growth of our MTSD family. It’s hard to believe that we now have 75 routines that will perform.

The 2017 -2018 competition season has begun and we have a busy few months ahead attending exciting workshops, learning new routines, ordering competition costumes and warm-up suits.  We will begin sizing NEW company members for their warm-up suits next week.   The following Companies: Mini, Petite, Junior “Blue” (Miss Kiera) Junior “Red” (Miss Tanya), Teen “Blue” (Miss Kiera), Teen “Red” (Miss Tanya) & Senior Company Members are required to purchase the black and hot pink velour warm-up suit, with the studio’s name in Australian crystal writing on the back of the jacket and the company members name on the front.  This warm-up suit is optional for the Hip Hop Company members.  If company members are also on a Hip Hop Company only one jacket is required and that one is the velour jacket. The estimated cost for the warm-up jacket only (depending on the total amount ordered) is around $158.00 and will be broken up into two payments.   We based the cost on last season’s order, but this price could change.   An invoice for the jacket will be given out in December and must be paid by cash or check only.   If any existing company members need a new velour jacket, please let Miss Tammy know by Saturday, October 21st 2017, as this jacket is custom made and usually takes until the end of January or beginning of February to come in.  If any Hip Hop Company members would like this jacket please let us know by the above date.   The velour pants are not required.  Company members can wear any black legging.

The Hip Hop Company Members warm-up jacket will be ordered by November 4th 2017 and sizing will begin on Monday, October 23rd 2017.  If any existing Hip Hop Company members need a new warm –up jacket, please let Miss Tammy know by Monday, October 23rd 2017.  The estimated ship date is early January.  The estimated cost for the jacket is $95.00 and is based on last year’s price. Company members can wear any black athletic pants or legging.  An invoice will be given at a later date.  If Hip Hop Company members prefer the velour jacket instead of the jacket listed above, you may order that one instead.

Fundraising money can be applied to any company related balance, not tuition or recital costume deposits or balance.  If company members have money left after the competition season has ended, they then may apply money to tuition and recital costume balances.

 We do have information regarding two host hotels for the Beyond The Stars Competition March 9th – 11th 2018 at the Mass Mutual Center 1277 Main Street in Springfield Ma.  Both hotels are within walking distance to the Mass Mutual Center.  The Holiday Inn Express, 145 State Street Springfield Mass. offers a discounted room rate of $125.00 per night.  The phone number is 413-886-0555 and the room block is under Beyond The Stars.  The room block at the Holiday Inn is available now to call and reserve your room.  The other host hotel is the Sheraton Monarch Place, 1 Monarch Place Springfield Mass. The discounted rate is $149.00 per night and you may begin making reservations beginning on Monday, November 6th 2017.   The telephone number is 413-781-1010. The room block is under Miss Tanya’s School of Dance and there are a limited amount of rooms available.

Just a reminder, the competition pre- payment plan is due on or before the 10th of the month.  Many company members have been late on their payments.  Beginning this month (October) a $10.00 late fee will be added if paid after the 10th of the month and weekly thereafter.  This policy will be strictly enforced and no exceptions will be made.  Tuition and other related company fees must be paid by the due date, or late fees will be added.

Many company members still have not returned their signed company contract for the 2017-2018 competition season.  We also need birth certificates from all new company members.  If you were on a company last season, we do have your birth certificate on file.

“NEW” this season!!!  Group emails will be sent out and also paper notices via company mailboxes.  We are still missing a few email addresses.  We are using a new email format beginning in November, so we hope that this will fix the problem of some company members still not receiving the group email.  Please come to the front counter to give your email contact information. 

Just a reminder that Monster of Hip Hop payment is due on or before Saturday, October 21st 2017.  Cash or check only. A $10.00 late fee will be added if paid after the due date.

 

Competition Team Pre- Payment Plan & 2017-2018 Competition Schedule

The payment plan is MANDATORY FOR ALL COMPANY  MEMBERS.  The payment plan begins in July and will continue for the months of August, September, October, November & January for the ALL Companies: Small-Fry- Miss Kiera, Junior (Blue) - Miss Kiera, Junior (Red) - Miss Tanya, Teen (Blue)  - Miss Kiera,  Teen (Red) Team - Miss Tanya,  Senior Team – Miss Tanya & ALL Hip Hop Teams.  Fees collected will be applied to Entry Fees and Teacher Travel Fees.  If any money if left over at the end of the competition season, it can be applied to tuition, recital Costumes & summer Classes.   Payments are due on or before the 10th of each month.  A $10.00 Late fee will be added weekly thereafter (NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE) if paid after the due date.  This policy will be strictly enforced in the 2017-2018 season.  We hope that this budget plan will help with the expense of competitions.  We do realize that some parents use their tax returns for expenses.  Tax returns can be applied toward any leftover competition entry fees, recital costume balances and tuition.  Cash and checks only please, as payments go into a separate account.  Parents that participate in fundraising can apply those credits to any competition balance that may be left or recital expenses.  Competition Pre-Payments and Competition Entry Fees are NON REFUNDABLE and NON TRANSFERABLE.  If a team member competes in a Tap routine a separate $15.00 teacher travel fee will be added for each regional event.
