For the second year in a row, our studio will be participating in the exciting Topsfield fair Parade, which takes place on the day of the Fair's Opening.
We are inviting ALL students to come and march with us, pass out candy, be noticed and clapped for in town as we pass by, be on local tv and newspapers..and of course freestyle dance to the fun music which we will be playing as we parade.
We need a float .. and that float (trailer and car) will be decorated as we did last year, by all of us going to the parade.
That said, here is the information on what is needed:
FLOAT DECORATING PARTY!
Friday October 3rd, 6pm - 9 pm
12 Aaron's Drive
The Callahan Family's House is the site for float decorating this year. We kindly ask that each participant bring something to decorate... keeping in mind that the theme colors are purple, silver, orange)
Ideas for the float include sparkly decorations, (sparkly anything really!) garlands, etc. that can be attached to either the car or the trailer.
Saturday October 4th, 8:30 am
Topsfield Common Grounds
Dancers: wear leotard and dance shorts, tights, hair up in a bun, lots of fun make up (go crazy!) sparkly hair... the idea is to get attention!!
If you have dance costumes of your own because you compete, then pick your favorite. If you don't have one, LET MARIANA KNOW! she will loan you a fun costume for you to strut in!
Shoes: Any shoe that you are comfortable walking in (not dance shoes!)
Jackets: Studio jacket if you have one, studio sweatshirt if you have one in case it's cold.
Regular clothes to change back into after the parade is done.
The best part?? Dancers and the parents who walk with them following our float get into the fair for free that day!
The parade lasts about 1 hour ... You may be all set by 11 am.
If you are not marching with us, please make sure your child can be in touch with you so we can arrange for a pick-up location.
11 am (approx.) will be pick up time. We will then be at the fairgrounds where the parade ends.
Kids under age 8 must have a chaperone marching with them.
**What is expected? for our kids to SMILE a lot, do dance steps along the way, freestyle or any other.. pass out candy to the kids in the crowd (we tend to favor families with school age kids) Have a blast, hang with other dancers and visit the Fair! And, like last year, get on local tv and on the local news!
IMPORTANT NOTE: YOUR DANCER'S NAME NEEDS TO BE CONFIRMED ON A LIST THAT MARIANA IS PREPARING. PLEASE EMAIL MARIANA
TO CONFIRM YOUR PARTICIPATION IN BOTH THE DECORATING PARTY AND THE PARADE.
