Level 2 classes on Friday Oct 26, Saturday Oct 27, Sunday Oct 28 are cancelled for NUVO.

This is a mandatory convention! Which means that dancers should be attending all classes even if they've never tried the classes before!


Registration
Miss Jenn and a few other teachers will be at NUVO for the whole convention (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). This is who you will look for to receive your wrist band and registration info.

Friday Class time
Dancers in the Mini and Junior levels should all be attending the Hip Hop class (5:00-6:00pm).

We have received questions about what dancers should be attending the Inter/Advanced classes on Friday.

LOLs, Winks, Cool Kids are considered Inter/Advanced and should be attending the Friday classes. If dancers are not taking Tap (or haven't taken tap in the past 2 years), then they should not be attending the Tap class. All these dancers should be attending the Jazz Class (7:00-8:00) whether you are 13+ or not.

NUVO Level placement

NUbie's
Don't forget that all dancers need to have a parent present the WHOLE time during this convention. You will receive your observer pass at registration.

What to Wear
Dancers should we wearing items that are appropriate to the class style. For example, wear ballet tights, shoes and bodysuit to Ballet with a ballet bun. For hip hop, do not wear a ballet bun - wear something baggy and more funky.
We expect our dancers to look the part this weekend!
All dancers should be wearing their new jackets to NUVO.

Parent Classes
This year NUVO is offering FREE classes to parents on Saturday morning! If you are dropping your dancer off and want to take some classes yourself, stop by the classes!
No Halloween Costumes
Halloween costumes are not permitted in any Level 2 classroom.

This is why we give dancers Halloween off (no classes Wednesday October 31st)! So they can still enjoy wearing their halloween costumes and not worry about coming to dance on that day!
