Attached you will find a Showdown newsletter that contains all of the information that your dancers and parents will want to know before they arrive. Some of this information you may have received, but there is additional information included in a newsletter format that you can forward directly to your dancers for their convenience. Please, send to everyone that is attending, so that they will have the best experience possible, once they arrive.

A HUGE “Thank you!” goes out to Blake Dunn and Heather Kohberger for putting this information together for all of us. They have done an exceptional job!

Included in the newsletter, you will find the names and contact information for all of our board members and associates. Do not hesitate to contact one of us, if you have any questions regarding the weekend.

The dance off line-up will be determined by the scorekeeper. If you have more than one dance in the dance-off you may choose which routine you want placed in the slot.

Also, Since the line-up for the Showdown is taken from the star points, there shouldn’t be any back-to-back dancing. If there is, we (CCA) should know this and will contact you. At the event, you have 30 seconds to make your stage-call, if you are not there you will most likely be disqualified.

Watch the website for continuous information regarding the countdown to the showdown. We have a great weekend planned for you. Everyone practice hard and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year and please be safe.
