Competition Team Dress Rehearsal

As we get ready to head down to St. George it’s time to put the finishing touches on things and meet together as a team to be sure we’re all on the same page. Jazz Dance in Sandy UtahDress rehearsal is held at Dance Concepts and is mandatory.  All dancers should be in full costume with hair and makeup done.  This not only lets you practice doing your hair and makeup before the big day, but it helps us make sure everyone has the right look and there is no miscommunication.  Please be prepared with whatever undergarments you are going to wear at competition.  Most costumes should not have anything worn underneath them, but if your choreographer wants you to wear an extra bra or leotard underneath your costume you need to have the correct one with you that day. If there is time at the end of each rehearsal we will let solos/duets/trio rehearse or do a own dress rehearsal.  If you don't choose to do dress rehearsal at that time please make sure that you do your solo for your choreographer in full costume (with no extra undergarments) and hair so they can spot any potential problems.  (more…)

Butter Braid Fundraiser

Butter BraidButter Braid is easily the most popular fundraiser we have ever done.  They are delicious and people love them.  Most importantly, they are highly profitable for our dancers.  Last year our top selling family earned $440 profit! Participation is entirely optional.  On average dancers who sold Butter Braid last year profited $87. We primarily run this fundraiser for our competition team members, but any of our dancers are welcome to participate and use what they earn towards their tuition or spring costume fees.   Pick up an order form at the front desk starting today!  (more…)

Releve Dance Competition Recap

We had a fantastic time with our competition team in St. George last weekend.  For many girls on the team it was their first time ever competing and all of our dancers did a fantastic job. The weekend started out with solos on Friday.  Sydney, Shakira, and Vienna performed solos for the first time and debuted as the youngest set of soloists Dance Concepts has taken to a competition.  All three of them performed beautifully.  We are excited that Vienna was recognized as the top Mini Solo of the competition receiving a trophy much taller than she is.  (more…)
