Important Information

Tentative 2021-2022 Company Schedule

Dear Company Parents/Guardians & Company Members,

Listed below is the 2010-2022 tentative competition schedule. We are as excited as always to watch our students grow and achieve their goals. We do feel confident that the completions that we have chosen will take place, but we are still in an unknown world. At any time, the competition can change the Covid guidelines. As of today, competitions are not going to do studio blocking. Competitions will be run their events like they have been in past years. Please keep in mind that these are tentative dates. Listed below are FIVE. If the Competition cannot be held, many competitions will NOT refund the entry fees. The company will apply a credit for the next season, with the exception of Seniors that will be graduating. We will attend FIVE regional completions one workshop for all of our technical companies (Mini, Petites, Juniors, Teens & Seniors) and Monsters of Hip Hop for Hip Hop all Hip-Hop Companies.

We hope to have a Company Showcase in the beginning of March. More information will be given out once a date and location are determined. Just a reminder that Company members are required to participate in our Company Showcase Performance (if State guidelines allow us to have one) ALL Company members are required to sell 5 tickets each, which is in your company contract.

Workshops

Monster of Hip Hop – Mandatory for ALL Hip Hop Company Members. Dates: December 3rd – 5th 2021. Location: Mystic CT Marriott Hotel & Spa. The workshop offers an open class on Friday, but it is not mandatory to attend. If you would like to book a hotel and receive the discounted rate, visit Monsters of Hip Hop website and click on the Mystic CT location. You will see a place to book a room. The hotel does sell out fast, so if you are going to stay, we would suggest booking your rooms now.

Radix Dance Convention – January 7th – 9th 2022. Location: The Westin Boston Seaport District, 425 Summer Street Boston Mass. The convention levels are determined based on the dancers age as of January 1st 2022 to determine what level they will attend. Some company members will not be in the same room together and we cannot control that. The companies that will attend are: Mini, Petite, Juniors, Teen & Senior companies. The workshop is a two-day event, with the exception of dancers that are age 5-7 years of age, as of January 1st 2022. They will attend a one-day event. To book a room for the event, you must visit the Radix website and choose the Boston location to reserve a room. The cost for the workshop and teacher travel fee will be given out at a later date.

We would like to attend a National event this season, but we are being very cautious regarding the location that we choose. There has been rumor that we are going to Florida, but that is not true. We are looking at a local National event or a National in Myrtle Beach South Carolina. We are asking for everyone’s patience, as we want to make a correct decision based on the ever-changing issues of Covid. National events are costly and we do not want people purchasing plane tickets or booking hotels and due to new Covid restrictions we may not be able to attend an out of state event. We always have the best interest of the entire team when trying to make decisions. We may not know if we are attending a National until mid-November or later.
We appreciate your continued support as we try again to navigate the unknown world of Covid.

Thank you,
Miss Tanya, Miss Tammy, Mr. Andrew, Mr. Dylan & Miss Brianna

 

NATIONAL EVENT INFORMATION 2022

After a lot of consideration, we have decided to attend Elite Dance Challenge National, July 5th – 10th 2022 at Cape Cod. We had many families concerned about traveling a long distance, as there are still so many unknowns regarding Covid. Every day we are receiving calls at the studio regarding students exposed at school or a family member that has been vaccinated having a break through case. The positives of attending a local national outweighed taking a chance and traveling a long distance. This will allow families that may have only one or two routines the freedom to travel back and forth if they choose not to stay at a hotel.

The date listed that the event begins is July 5th 2022, but the actual competition begins on July 6th 2022. July 5th 2022 is for company members that may be chosen for the Elite Team at regionals and they also offer FREE Master classes for anyone that would like to attend on that date. Miss Tanya’s School of Dance instructors will arrive on July 5th, but not until later in the day. If a company member is invited onto the Elite Team at regionals and they would like to be part of it at nationals, the company member will have to let their instructor know, so that we can let the competition know that you will be arriving and participating on July 5th 2022. All company members are invited to take the free master classes if they want to arrive on July 5th 2022. We were told that they usually begin Elite Team practice around 8:00 or 9:00am and then master classes will be after that.

Over-all scores will be announced on Saturday, July 9th 2022, but there is a dance-off on Sunday, July 10th 2022. Some company members will possibly be invited to participate in the dance-offs and we will not know that until mid-week. We will have more information as soon as we get closer to the event.
