Hello everyone, hope you are having a great summer!!

I am extremely excited to share with you a wonderful new opportunity I am creating for our dancers 11 and up!!! They are called Company Clubs and my vision is to have a fun, large class for students that either want more than what they currently have or maybe are not able to participate in Company teams and would like a way to perform more and give back to the community!

Being that this is something totally new I have created, it will be a work in progress and we will need to see what works and maybe what doesn't - but I am very hopeful that this program will be super positive for our dancers and the community! Here are the details. :)

What are the Company Clubs offered and when do they meet?
  • Cincinnati Club (tap) will meet every other week on the even weeks, starting Sept. 6th Wednesdays from 6-6:55
  • Hip-Hop Fuzion (hip-hop) will meet every other week on the odd weeks, starting Sept. 13th Wednesdays from 6-6:55
What are the requirements to be a part of the clubs?
  • You need to be at least 11 years old by Nov.1st and had some experience (classes) in the style of your choice
  • You will need to attend a fun audition to make sure you are ready. This years audition is taking place on Wednesday, August 9th. Hip hop will audition at 3:30 and Tap will audition at 4:15. We encourage ANYONE ages 11 and up with some experience to come and try!! If you are out of town August 9th please email Ms. Katie as soon as possible for a private audition.
  • Do you have to be on a Company Team to be on a Club? NO!!!! That's the great thing about the Clubs! It gives you a little more opportunity to perform other than recital if you are not on a team. It's also a great addition for anyone on team wanting more performance opportunities.
What are the commitments and where will we perform?
  • You will need to not miss more than 2 classes in your specific club as we only meet every other week and will be working mostly on choreography
  • It is preferred that you are in a class of the style you choose in addition to the club but not required this year. We will re-visit this next year but worth a try to see if we can get more kids tapping and hip-hopping:)
  • Our goal is to make it to 2-3 additional performances on top of recital. We will go to a nursing home or Children's hospital for community outreach as well as the Showcase of Talent that is every spring. On top of that I will look at what additional performance would be a good fit for our dancers and give you ample time to prepare. For our tappers, we will work on fundraisers to purchase tap boards in case some venues do not allow tap shoes.
  • Most importantly, a commitment to your club members that you will practice and be ready to work not only for the dance aspect but as a good team mate to inspire and encourage each other to do your best!
What is the financial commitment?
  • The pricing for clubs is listed on the Excel pricing sheet and is added onto your monthly tuition based off how many clubs you take. There are discounts for taking more than one.
  • We will work with a budget for costuming that is a little more simple to help keep it affordable for dancers that are doing several classes. Our costume fee will be $50 this year and we will re-visit this as well next year to see if we feel it is still workable.
  • Some of our venues will have no cost and a few may have ticket fees. All entry or ticket fees will be posted in ample time to prepare.
Again, I am so very excited to offer this to our dancers! I am here to answer any questions or encourage your dancer if needed!! Please email me at katie@exceldancecentre.com. Thank you so much for being a part of our dance family and helping grow not only dancers, but amazing people!!

Hugs, 
Ms. Katie

SIDENOTE:
  • Steps of Grace (Liturgical) will meet every week and still fall under the class codes, requirements and payments. It is considered a club due to us performing outside of class other than recital. We meet Wed. 3:30-4:25. You will be placed in this class by Ms. Katie without audition if she feels you are ready and have requested the class for the year. :) Steps of Grace will perform at a nursing home or Showcase as well as a local church. We are also taking our dancers to a wonderful convention and performance opportunity in the winter called Dance Revolution. This information will be handed out the first week of class.
