DANCE WITH US

Join our 2nd Annual Open Company Competition piece! Last year WEAVE created a piece that featured all levels of our 2nd grade and older dancers and had a blast. Bonus: that piece got first overall! Whether we win or lose (cause it's not about that!), we hope to have just as much fun this season!

This year our open company piece will compete at Encore Dance Competition when they come to Chattanooga the weekend of March 27th.

 

LAST YEAR, WEAVE TOOK HOME 1ST OVERALL (AKA: THE BIG ONE) WITH "MY SHOT"

YOU SHOULD DO THIS BECAUSE

Following through with commitments is one of the most important things you can teach your child. Through this process of setting a competition piece, there will be ups and downs, fun days and "boring" days. You are never too young to learn how to navigate your feelings and reap the rewards of personal accomplishment and growth at the end of this process.

Personal Growth

At WEAVE, we are a TEAM! Learning how to work as a group is another valuable life lesson that carries far beyond dance. In rehearsals dancers will be encouraged to lift each other up, hold each other accountable and vibe as one while dancing on stage!

Team Work

There are things in the dance competition world that we do and don't like. Part of what we don't like is the way that sometimes dancers are clothed (or lack thereof), the music they are dancing to, and the way they are dancing... basically, age appropriate behavior has been thrown out the window! At WEAVE you will NEVER see this from our dancers. When your dancer is competing at WEAVE, you can be proud that they are representing a philosophy that young dancers can move and be clothed appropriately AND STILL score high and earn the judges' respect. Let's be agents of change in the world of competition dance!

Agents of Change

 
 

Details

WEAVE will be bringing an open level competition piece to Encore Dance Competition at the Chattanooga Convention Center when they are in town during the weekend of March of 27th.

You/your dancer can participate in this piece as long as they are an open company member and at least in 2nd grade. Factors such as how long one has been dancing or what styles one is trained in is not contingent on one participating. WEAVing together dancers of all levels is what we do best ;)

WEAVE will be setting an open piece that will incorporate hip hop, contemporary-funk, jazz and acro styles to a mix of Kanye West's "Jesus Walks" and "Selah".  You can listen to our custom cut below:

Competition Weekend (March 27th - 29th)

We will not know their exact performance time until at least one week prior to the event. This is extremely common amongst competitions as they wait for all their registrations to come in before releasing the schedule. They will only perform the piece once and then will be required to stay for the award ceremony, and then will be released. This will take place all on ONE DAY.. we just don't know which day that is yet. From past experiences, we can say that they will most likely schedule our performance on Saturday or Sunday, but be prepared for anything! Keep your schedule flexible the entire weekend.

A fee of $154/dancer will be due on March 1st.

This fee includes our entry fee, competition fee, registration fee, costume fee, rehearsal fees, and choreography fee.

Policies

Rehearsal Policy

If a dancer misses rehearsal for an excused reason, they will still be in what is taught/gone over. Excused absences include reasons like sickness with a fever, death in the family, etc. A dancer is allowed a total of 2 excused absences. After that, they run the risk of not being in a section of the dance or not being in the dance at all. No refunds will be offered. Dancers must contact us before the rehearsal starts for an absence to be excused. If a dancer misses rehearsal for an unexcused reason, they will at minimum be taken out of the section that is worked on that day and at most be taken out of the entire piece. No refunds will be offered.

Trusting us with these types of decisions are the only way you/your dancer can participate in this piece. Questioning these decisions or failure to comply with the above will result in a suggestion to not be apart of this piece.
