ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN PROCESS

Stars/Minis:

On Sunday, December 11th - please have the designated scarf and sequin belt on your Dancer when you check them in with us in the Cafeteria at Shawnee Mission West High School. The parent will be able to go sit down when doors open to the auditorium. The auditorium will be open seating. Times will depend on which show they will perform in. You can see times here.

The scarves are a way of us identifying which class/group they are performing with that day.  If your dancer is in more than one class then you will be receiving a different color scarf for each class.  

*Please be sure to turn in ALL scarves with our volunteers in the Cafeteria at the end of our Winter Wonderland.  That way we can use them again next year. 


*If your Stars/Mini dancer is in multiple routines, they need to be wearing the scarf for their first routine. Once the first routine is over, one parent will be responsible for coming back to the cafeteria to change your dancer's scarf to the second routine as well as changing shoes. If your dancer is in a combo and hip hop class, we recommend bringing leggings to pull over the tights so they are in all black for hip hop. JPDC Staff will be working the show and will not be changing scarves or shoes. 

 

Level I-VII:

Dancers will need to arrive for check-in at their specific time depending on which show they are in and dancers will go back to their dressing rooms to prepare for the show. The parent will be able to go sit down when the doors open to the auditorium. The auditorium will be open seating. Times will depend on which show they will perform in. You can see the times here.
