posted January 10th 2021

Hello everyone!

Here is the latest update on the 2021 All-Iowa Honor Dance Team.  Due to the uncertainty of us being allowed to be in person March 4-6 at Grand View University and Wells Fargo Arena, we are moving to a new plan.  I want to make sure we are able to acknowledge this awesome group of dancers and I feel this is the best plan.  

We are going to “Teach, Rehearse, Perform and Record” all in one day – Monday, Feb. 22 at HyVee Hall. To expedite this plan we will need a quick turn around of your confirmations.  Confirmations will be due Jan. 19.

Confirmations need to include type of payment, lunch order, shirt order, jazz pant order, and any other size information needed.

Pricing per dancer = $85/dancer

  • (Includes performance fees, performance sweatshirt, certificate and noon lunch box)
  • Director/Coach/Chaperone Lunch = $12.50
  • NO OUTSIDE FOOD CAN BE BROUGHT INTO HV HALL (i.e. pizzas, subways)

Water:  Each dancer will be asked to bring in their own water and personalized water bottles.  No jugs or coolers.

Pricing:

  • Per Dancer = $85/dancer
  • Optional Additional Shirts = Small through X-Large: $20 (add $3 for 2X and 3X)
  • Optional Additional Sweatshirts = Small through X-Large: $33 (add $2 for 2X and 3X)
