HEARTBEAT DANCE TEAM #seussontheLOOSE FAQ'S:

 

CAN WE DROP OFF DANCERS DURING REHEARSAL TIME?
This year 70 dancers will be participating in our Heartbeat Dance Team! We are so lucky to have such a large group of committed and enthusiastic dancers. Due to this large number of dancers, we kindly ask that during each weekend our Dance Families drop off their dancers and promptly leave the studio until it is time for pickup. We understand that so many families enjoy waiting and love sharing in the excitement of the day; however, when the waiting area is crowded, it is difficult for our Dance Educators to transition dancers between rooms in a quick and efficient manner. We promise that each of our dancers will be in good care. Thank you in advance for accommodating this request.

HOW CAN WE PRACTICE AT HOME?
With such a limited number of rehearsals, we strongly encourage your dancer to practice at home!  Please log into your portal and click the link there. In this link you will find all songs, lyrics, & partner assignments.

WHERE SHOULD MY DANCER GO WHEN THEY GET THERE FOR REHEARSAL?
Dancers should arrive, hang up their coat on one of our coat racks, put their dance shoes on and head straight to their studio with their dance bags and a water bottle. We ask that guardians leave Gotta Dance until pickup at which time dancers will be dismissed into the lobby.

HOW DO I ORDER A TEAM JACKET?
All NEW Heartbeat dancers will be receiving a team jacket! For this weekend only (FEB 4TH & 5TH), sample jackets and sizes will be available for dancers to try on during their scheduled rehearsal time.  This will give each dancer the opportunity to try on different sizes in order to choose the right fit.  All dancers should order their team jacket through their Gotta Dance portal under Category 3 “Heartbeat Jackets” by Wednesday, February 8th.   

WHAT IS MY DANCER ALREADY HAS A JACKET THAT FITS?
If your dancer was apart of the Heartbeat Dance Team last season and their jacket still fits them, they do not need to order a new jacket but will receive another special Heartbeat Team wear. This Sunday, Feb 12th only, sample sizes will be available for dancers to try on during their scheduled rehearsal time.   Dancers should order their extra teamwear through their Gotta Dance portal under Category 3 “Heartbeat Extra Teamwear” by Wednesday, February 15th.

SHOULD I WRITE MY DANCERS NAME IN THE JACKET?
YES!  Everyone is required to write their dancer's name inside their Heartbeat Team Jacket (All jackets are identical & they WILL get mixed up very easily)

WHAT IS TEAM DAY?
Team Day is our dress rehearsal day!  Team day will be held at the Branchburg studios from 3:00pm-6:00pm on Saturday, March 4th. We will provide your dancers with a light, nut free snack during this time.

WHEN IS PERFORMANCE DAY?

WHEN DO DANCERS NEED TO BE THERE ON PERFORMANCE DAY?

CAN I COME WHEN I DROP OFF MY DANCER?
Families are invited to arrive between 3:40pm and 4:00pm for the Seuss On The Loose performance beginning at 4:00pm.  All families and guests will be assigned seating in the lobby prior to entering the ballroom. We will make every effort to seat family members together with a good view of their dancer for the majority of the performance.

SHOULD MY DANCER EAT BEFORE THE PERFORMANCE?
Please make sure that your dancer has a healthy lunch before they arrive.  We will provide dancers with a light, nut free snack, and this will be after their rehearsal.  As always, please make sure that your dancer brings a water bottle to stay hydrated.

IS THERE A SNOW DATE?
Performance Snow Date—In case of significant snowfall/state of emergency on Performance Day, the performance will be rescheduled for the same time on Sunday, March 12th.
