Summer Dance Opportunities

posted Apr 8, 2015, 4:50 PM by Caitlin Mayo

Hello dancers and parents,

With summer just around the corner, I thought I would send out a message on dance opportunities that will be offered this summer.

First, I would highly recommend all of our dancers to sign up for the ballet class that is going to be offered through community education the last two weeks in June. The instructor, Sasha Savinov, is a family friend from Russia who has an excellent resume filled with dancing and choreographing on a professional ballet level. There will be 6 classes from 1-3 p.m. for $25. It is a great opportunity for our dancers to build up their technique, balance, flexibility, and strength. More information and registration can be found on the community ed website.

Next, we will be going through the Just for Kix studio in Sartell for some intense training on Tuesdays and Thursdays each week. Each class will be 3 hours long and will focus on technique and strength training for ballet, jazz, and kick. The registration forms are attached to this post. If you would like a paper copy, I have them in my classroom. Please have all registration forms turned in to me by May 1st. Once I know who is all signed up, I will have a parent meeting to set up carpooling options.

If the second option is too large of a time commitment, I will be holding a jazz/kick camp the last two weeks of July here at the school. We will also focus on technique, flexibility, strength, and some choreography. More information and registration can be found on the community ed website.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for working so hard on the pizza kit fundraiser. We raised about $2,000! With that money we will be focusing on buying gear for the dancers and, hopefully, a portable dance floor for the cafeteria. We really appreciate all of the hard work and dedication.

Just a reminder, if your dancer isn't in a spring sport, we highly recommend that they stay active. Whether it be walking outside (weather permitting), running, or stretching while they watch T.V. I am in the weight room every Tuesday and Thursday after school for any of the dancers that would like to get a workout in. It's always easier to get motivated for a workout if someone is going through it with you. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Fundraiser

    Dear Parents/ Dance Team Members:

 

    Starting March 4th the Melrose Rosettes will launch a Little Caesars Pizza Kit Fundraiser to raise funds for:
     
team apparel and a new dance floor for when the gyms are not available.

                                                          

·      Our sales period will be from March 4th to March 20th.

·      Each seller will receive an order form to keep track of customers, orders, and payments.

·      If a dancer sells 15 kits or more, she will receive a free clothing item next season.

·      Students/Members collect payment at time of order. Checks should be made payable to Melrose Rosettes.

·      Students/Members turn in order forms and money by March 20th

·      Be sure to tally your order form across every row and down every column.

·      Our delivery location is the Elementary Cafeteria.

·      Pick-up time is scheduled for April 1st at 3:30 PM.  Since a lot of the dancers are going to Chanhassen that day, I will     stay here until 6:30 PM for those girls to pick up their orders.

·       Each student/member will be responsible for delivering the Pizza Kit orders.

 

   We expect that this Little Caesars Pizza Kit Fundraiser will be a great success! We’re confident that we’ll develop many repeat customers and referrals, which could make this our most profitable fundraiser yet!  With that in mind, please don’t forget to save your customer lists for future sales!  As always, we appreciate your support and look forward to great success!

Banquet Date Moved

posted Feb 9, 2015, 8:05 AM by Caitlin Mayo

Dancers and parents,

Due to the last boys’ basketball home game against Albany on February 17th, we have decided to move our banquet back one day to Monday, February 16th. We will still be at the Greenwald Pub at 6:30. The basketball program has been generous with gym time and performance opportunities this year. We would like to show our support for them as well. We are sorry for any confusion or inconvenience.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns. Go Dutchmen!

Dance Team Banquet

posted Feb 6, 2015, 10:38 AM by Caitlin Mayo

The dance team banquet will be held at the Greenwald Pub on Tuesday, February 17 at 6:30 p.m. All dancers will be paid for by the dance team. Due to the large number of dancers on our team, we ask that only parents/guardians attend for each dancer. A pasta dinner will be served. We will also be presenting the end-of-season awards and camp information.

Thank you for being great supporters of the Rosettes!

Uniform Turn-In

All JV and Varsity dance team members: Uniform turn-in will be on Thursday after school. After all uniforms

season's slide show. Please plan on this lasting until 4:30.

Practice - Competitions This Week

posted Jan 18, 2015, 3:02 PM by Caitlin Mayo

There will be no practice tomorrow, January 19th. We really hope the girls will take the time to rest so we can finish off the season strong!

The WCC competition on Thursday is for Varsity dancers only. JV dancers will have practice as regularly scheduled. 

Varsity and JV teams will be competing on Friday at the Alexandria competition.

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Monticello Competition

posted Jan 15, 2015, 12:27 PM by Caitlin Mayo

Hello everyone,

We have not been sent the updated schedule for Monticello yet. Just in case it comes really late, I'm going to put the original schedule on here. They made the mistake of only putting us down for one JV Kick team. We registered for 2 JV Kick teams, so both will be dancing. 

The bus will still load at 8:20 and leave at 8:30.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.

Monticello Competition

posted Jan 13, 2015, 4:02 PM by Caitlin Mayo   [ updated Jan 13, 2015, 4:10 PM ]

The Monticello schedule was sent today, but it had some incorrect information. I will send out a paper copy of the schedule when it is updated. We will load the bus at 8:20 and leave by 8:30. Ticket sales will be at 10:15 and doors open at 10:45. Awards are scheduled for 3 PM. 

If your daughter has ordered a t-shirt, please make sure she has the money to me by Friday night. Thanks!

Also, please remember that if you would like to take your daughter home from a competition, we need a signed note the night before the competition or earlier. We do this for the safety of the dancers. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation. 

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
