Updated Extras Schedule

Some times have shifted and a few Miss Serena Solos have been added! Check it out. 

Years Of Experience - REVIEW THIS

Please review the attached sheet to confirm your dancers years of experience. This is how your dancer will be entered into competition. If something looks wrong and your dancer has more/less year of experience in a certain style please let Mandy know. 

If you think your dancers years of experience is the same as another dancers’ please look at theirs as well! 

It is VERY difficult and sometimes not possible to make changes once we submit the years of experience to the competition so please ensure that the information in this document is correct. 

NUVO and GSP + Mandatory Waiver

All level 2 dancers are attending NUVO please review the attached document for your NUVO placement. Everyone has been charged for NUVO as of today (Wednesday September 26). 

I can no longer make changes so this is the final information. 

Teachers will be in attendance at NUVO, however they are not chaperones. Dancers receive breaks/lunch breaks/etc. If your dancer is not capable of being left alone in the downtown area, a parent/guardian must be present for these dancers. 

*ALL Nubie’s must have a parent present in the room with them the whole time. One parent will receive an observer pass*

ALL dancers (parent/guardian must sign) attending NUVO must fill out the attached waiver. If you do not fill out the waiver you will not be permitted to participate at NUVO.


GSP has been charged and registered. I can no longer make any changes to this registration. Please review the attached document for your GSP placement.

Syllabus Bodysuits - New Order
(for back up bodysuits/exam only bodysuits)

All dancers should have either received their bodysuits or will be receiving them this week! If your dancers has not receive their bodysuit it is because we hand them out in Syllabus class.

Silent Auction - Oct 20 + Accepting Donations

It's less than a month away! Please let us know if you plan on donating something so we can prepare for it! We appreciate any donations that you can offer! 

We will be doing a really fun Wine raffle this year and we are asking that families bring one bottle of wine into the studio! So even if you don’t plan on donating something but have a bottle of wine or two laying around, drop it off! We will be extremely grateful! 

Summer Extras Charges

For those of you that had summer extras charged on Monday, you may have noticed that the amount charged was different (less) than in a previous email I had sent out - this is because you already paid a $25 deposit at registration! If you have any questions about the difference in price, please let me know!

Otherwise, it wasn’t a mistake - you were charged the correct amount.

Solo/Duo Extra Rehearsals 

Please keep in mind that Choreographers can take up to 5 rehearsals to finish setting choreography. This does not mean that your choreographer is behind or that you aren’t learning as quickly as others. Some choreography is very intricate and often depends on working with the dancer at the time. Don’t worry!

Dancers will be allowed to book additional rehearsal time with their choreographer after their 5 rehearsals are done.
Suspicious Man - Please report any suspicious people/behaviour 

Calgary Police Service contacted us and let us know that many businesses in our area have been reporting a suspicious man in and around workout studios/other dance studios. As of right now, we have not seen this man or witnessed any suspicious behaviour but we ask that if you see anything suspicious or concerning that you please call Calgary Police Services (non-emergency) at 403-266-1234.

Alive Danceworks can not make a statement to the police for you so please call them if you see anything! We would also like you to let us know if you see anything like this. 

For now, we will be keeping all the blinds closed in all the studios and asking that dancers leaving the studio on breaks and to/from dance buddy up with someone. Please talk to your dancers about safety measures especially in the areas around the studio where we know they feel comfortable. 

Email Lists

All of our emails lists are up to date. If you would like to add more emails please let us know and we will add it!

Nut Free/Animal Free/Scent Free Studio
