Showstopper Winter Newsletter


Here is a review of upcoming events for the Showstopper Team.  I know it's a busy couple of months, so make sure to put everything in your calendar.


Winter Break Technique Classes

Your dancer is used to a certain routine, during Winter Break the dancer’s normal routine is gone with having no school and no dance.  Of course a break is always nice and many people use this time for vacations. However, I will be having two Winter Break Technique Classes for anyone that would like to get a class or two in during the Winter Break.  These are not mandatory but recommended if your dancer is available.


Wednesday December 27th – 10am-12pm

Wednesday January 3rd – 10am-12pm


These classes will include cardio, stretching and technique.  The fee is $15 for the two hours, if you sign up for both Wednesday’s the fee is $25.  You can enroll in these classes now.  If we do not get enough enrolled the class could be canceled so sign up today!

January 26th - Showstopper Showcase Finale Rehearsal

In order for all dancers to learn and perform the Finale for the Showstopper Showcase there will be rehearsal on January 26th.  Times for each group are below -


4-5:30pm       Petites/Minis/Juniors

5-6:30pm       Teens/Seniors


Dancers will wear their 5678 Team Shirt, black shorts, tan tights and tan shoes for the finale.


January 27th - Showstopper Picture Day

Dancers will have headshots taken as well as a group shot of each competition dance for the Showcase program and Gallo Lobby.  The schedule is listed on the last page of this newsletter.


Headshot Information -

Attire -

I am doing a more casual look this year.  Dancers will need to wear denim jeans (not too dark) and a cute white shirt.  If dancers wear a bra please make sure they wear a nude bra underneath, not a white or other color as it will show through the shirt.  A small necklace, bracelet or small earrings are fine to wear.  We may add or take away jewelry depending on the items.


Hair & Make Up -

Hair can be worn however the dancer likes to wear it best.  For Make-up, I want a natural look, so a little make up on the younger ones, just some blush, and lip gloss.  Older dancers can wear make-up they wear on a normal basis, not competition make up.


Examples -
