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"
Enjoy this award winning performance featuring all levels of our open company dancers:
YOU SHOULD DO THIS BECAUSE
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.
Optional Payment Plan:
$77 due on February 15th
$77 due on March 1st
When you sign up, your card on file will be charged per the payment plan or on the due date.
As stated above, the majority of the costume will be provided by us per the fee. You will be asked to provide a basic item such as black leggings or pants. This will be announced prior to the competition.
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.
