IMPORTANT INFO:

 

**We will be learning a contemporary jazz routine to an instrumental version of "I Won't Give Up on Us".  This was Sara's team's nationals routine.  The plan is to make this OUR nationals jazz routine, since there is limited time between state and nationals, and the sooner we know this, the better.  Although all of us will be learning this routine at camp, not all of us will be dancing this routine at nationsl...It is an "Invite only" routine...ust an FYI

 

**We will also be learning a super fun hip hop routine.  Wouldn't it be great if we could take a hip hop routine to nationals as well...or maybe compete with it at some local competitions? 

 

**Our foucs at camp will be on getting the choreography learned.  This will mean a little less "across the floor"/technique and warm up time.  Be prepared to work hard and stay focused on internalizing the choreo.

 

**It is important that you are at every day of camp, all day...and at each evening activity.  EVERYTHING is mandatory, including Friday's fun day, unless previously excused thrugh me! 

 

**You should consider the theme/dress up days mandatory. Have fun with them!

 

**Decorated sweat towels will be exchanged on Monday. Please MAKE SURE that you bring these, as we go around in a circle and show them off. It’s very sad when someone doesn’t get one...and certainly not displaying TEAM NICE or TEAM RESPECT. Take some time to put some personal, heartfelt work into showing your big/little sis just how much you care!!!!

 

**Early is on time!!! It is important that you are on time. This shows respect to Sara, your coach and your teammates. The new girls are assigned the following drivers, please cooridnate times ASAP and switch if necessary.  Returning members should coordinate with old girls to arrange rides ASAP.

 

**This is our week to lay the foundations for our year. We need to work hard, play hard, get to know each other and be positive at all times. We need to set the tone for how our practice are going to run, how we work with each other, and how focused we are on improving as individuals and dancing as a team! This is TROYETTE week...all day and all evening. Let your family and friends know that this week is dedicated to US!  Go Troyettes!!!!!

 

**Come with a positive, uplifting attitude and let’s make it our goal to have an amazing week. This is a great time for bonding and growing as a team and as individual dancers...This experience will be exactly what you make of it!

 

**We need to talk OUT LOUD and positively to each other during warmups/technique/ and learning choreography (when appropriate). Be involved in your teammates growth, development and excitement!

 

**Do not sit by the people you always sit by...Step out of your comfort zone and sit by somebody that you could get to know better! 

 

**TEAM NICE is in effect! TEAM RESPECT is in effect! TEAM 110% is in effect.

 

**Old girls, and specifically seniors...it is your responsibility to make EVERYONE feel included. This includes camp time and lunch time. It is your responsibility to be fun, excited, uplifting and to spread the Troyette love. It is your responsibility to demonstrate how we work hard and how we play hard. The 2016 seniors are gone and the new group needs to start stepping up and putting their own personal stamp on this year! How exciting!!!!

 

**You are expected to represent yourselves, your coach and our team in a respectful and mature manner at all times...at camp, at lunch and at evening activities. Please be quiet and attentive while learning, always dance full out, do not ask for breaks.

 

**Be sure to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch EVERY day...you can’t make your car go if there’s no gas in the engine :)

 

**If you are receiving a ride...offer gas money. This is TEAM NICE and TEAM RESPECT in action!!!!

 

**Shoes must be worn during all class times and all times that camp is “in session” unless Sara has specified otherwise. Please don’t wear your good performance jazz shoes for this camp...You may wear your dance sneakers or lyrical shoes if you’d like (if they have arrived).

 

**No swearing or gum chewing. Be aware of your body language when learning and critiquing.
