Dear Parents and Students,
We are so proud to have you on our team this upcoming dance season. We are a year-round extra-curricular organization. This year you will embark on an amazing new journey that will provide you with great, long-lasting memories and life skills for success. The Autumn Ridge Dance Team is a group of students who will represent themselves as student leaders and ambassadors of their school as well as the community. We are a competitive dance program that will train in dance and cheer movement. Our motto is to work hard and play hard. We will have many fun events and socials for our students this year. However, we will train to be our best for all of our events. We will practice twice to three times after school and some Saturdays. In the Spring contest season, we will practice daily and on Saturdays. Each member is required to be enrolled in our team dance class. Please make sure to check your schedule to make sure you are placed in the Emeralds team dance class. Each member will be expected to meet all the district handbook, humble isd dance handbook, and dance team handbook requirements. We will follow all UIL's rules, standards, and expectations. We are a No Pass No Play dance team and organization.
Our season begins the first day you are chosen to be a member of the ARMS Emeralds Dance Team. Each member will be sized for uniforms and expected to make their first deposit of $250 on April 5th, 2022. There will be a list of attire and dance items needed for the upcoming dance season. The list will have due dates, links, payment plans, and financial expectations. We will use dance vendors' links and the district RevTrak for all payments. ( NO CASH or CHECKS ) Once we have established a booster club, payment options will change and payments will be made to the booter club directly. We will hold practices in April and May after school. Our designated practices will be twice a week at Woodcreek Middle School. Specific days will be given to parents and students one to two weeks prior to practice. We will begin to work on ballet technique and cheer arm positions. Over the summer you are required to attend all camps and designated practices. Please be prepared to attend July 25th-29th Summer Camp 2022 for our annual team camp. Please also be prepared to attend an ARMS summer performance/parade on July 30th. We will begin learning our team bonding, football routines, pep rally dances, contest routines, and more. Students will need an updated physical. The link is below.
Summer dance requirements are twelve ballet hours. Summer hours are due by the end of July. Each member may get more dance hours after their ballet hours are completed. You may attend any dance studio of your choice. However, I will send out a studio list to all parents with options for studios in your area.
In August we will practice the first two weeks of school after school to prepare for our football season. During this time, we will go over field routines and yard lines, victory lines, stand routines, parade, pep rally dances, contest choreography, and work on dance skills. These days will be our Back to School Dance Camp days.
There will be reminders and communication through email, Remind 101, and Band. We will also use SignUpGenius for parent event sign-ups. I will be sending out those codes to each App after you have filled out the google form below.
