December 1st Update

Oakley Tree Lighting

Saturday December 4th

Call time: 3:30pm

Please come dressed and ready to go.

We will do formations and a final run through so that we all know what we are doing when it is time to perform before the rest of the performers arrive. I won’t be able to individually run this routine after 4pm.

Please review the choreography on ecpacnews.com on the Jr. Faculty Page. Remember you need between 4-8 counts of “showcase” choreography, if you did the homecoming parade, you can do the same thing.

If you are in Snow or Russian you will have time to change in-between the jr. Faculty number and your Nutcracker performance. Please come prepared.

Sparkle Squad & Semi Comp TAs make sure you know your dances so that you can do it with them on the side.

I will need helpers as well for our semi comp, sparkle squad, & sidewalk spectacular dancers before and after they perform to sit and keep them in line. Everyone who is performing, songs run continuously, so it is going to move quickly.

Everyone will bow at the end of our entire ecpac performance.

Wear: Jr. Faculty sweatshirt, black leggings, sneakers (white preferred but not required) Nutcracker performers wear your tights & black leo under your leggings and sweatshirt.

Hair: Slicked back pony w/ side part or bun (if needed for nutcracker performance)

Make up: Stage make up no lashes, natural lip

Nutcracker performers: Snow & Russians

Call time: 4:00pm

Come prepared, same as you did for the streets of brentwood tree lighting. Black leo, tights, ballet flats, etc.

You will have time to change in-between the jr. Faculty number and your Nutcracker performance. Please come prepared.

Little Stars

Below you will find the little stars show order & the classes you ar assigned to. You will be responsible to staying with your class during the check in & check out process as wells back staging and assisting to get them on and off stage for their performance.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW ASAP IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND THE LITTLE STARS SHOW ON SUNDAY DECEMBER 5TH

All Jr. Faculty will need to be their from 9:30am-2pm

Most of the TAs assigned for the class are already the regular Teas for those classes. Some have been given classes that didn’t have any TAs. Almost every class ( with the exception of very few) have been assigned a second TA to help out and be an extra hand when needed, but your job is the same as staying with the class the whole time while back stage.

It has been 2 years since we have done a live stage performance like this and for most of these dancers, this will be their first time so everything will seem new & maybe scary. We are going to need all hands on deck and as much help as possible.

Digital Formations

I would really appreciate if ALL Jr. Faculty Members who will be present at Little Stars to help would learn at least 1 part to be a part of this performance.

It is really good for parents of younger dancers to see what their dancers could do and be a part of when they grow up.

The only jr. Faculty members who will be excused from the performance will be the queens performing their Nutcracker ending piece.

Holiday Routine

This is the dance at will be performed at the Little Stars show on December 5th, the Oakley Tree lighting on December 4th, & Possibly the Streets of Brentwood tree lighting on November 28th

even if you are only able to attend 1 of those performances I recommend to learn at least a part of the routine

I will be sending out 2 videos 1 with the Parade Routine & another with the Tree Lighting & Little Stars. The routine will be the same for the Little Stars Show as it will be for the Tree Lightings. Again super fun & easy!

I would like to plan to meet on Thursdays at 5:45pm-6pm starting TOMORROW 11/4 to do formations & clean. I know a large amount of Jr. Faculty Members are already there at this time and there just so happens to be an open room. We will only have 3 weeks of practice time between now and the 1st tree lighting.

Little Stars Show, if you are a TA for any of those classes performing in the little stars show, you will NEED to be at that performance or find a sub who can learn the routine for your class to help out on show day.

If you don’t have any classes performing at the little stars performance you are more than welcome to come and help!

October 27th Update

Homecoming Choreography

I will be at the studio again on Thursday at 5:45-6pm if anyone wants to go over it, or if I have everyone, I will do formations, if not then I will just wait until Friday.

Choreo Playlist link:

https://youtu.be/ep3lTHtSP7Y

“Vroom, Vroom” section, 4;8 counts

This will be a free style section, everyone needs to come up with a minimum of 4 counts (1,2,3,4,) or anything up to 1;8 count (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8)

use this as a time to showcase yourself. Tricks, kicks, flips are all great! Choreography is also 100% acceptable! Please get creative & use this as an opportunity! You may also do this with a partner or trio, even a group of 4 is fine! we will go over the order for who goes on what count either Thursday or Friday. If you don’t have something prepared, I will give you something on Friday.

Homecome Details:

The Homecoming parade is scheduled for Friday, October 29th at 6pm

Call time is 5pm.

We will meet on Fist Street; between Birch st. & Fir st.

Look for my Grey Jeep Cherokee, I will have balloons tied to it.

If I get our exact number I will let you know before hand.

The parade will head down first street, turning right on Maple street, and then continue onto Second street, to enter into the Liberty Parking lot, in years past we have also gone around the football field and then ended, but I am not sure. I am waiting confirmation for a definite ending point for you guys to pick up your dancer.

Dismissal

if your dancer will be meeting up with you in the stands or hanging out with friends after the parade, please fill out the form attached so that I can release them WITHOUT your presence at the end of the parade. I hate to be OCD, I just want to make sure I keep your kids as safe as possible, but I also know there are a handful that have siblings on dance team, who will be capable of finding you guys as well.

Release Form:

https://forms.gle/EGz7XSMg1tELUtu37

What to wear:

I have sweatshirts for your jr. Faculty gear, I will be making them tomorrow & will bring them to the parade on Friday

You will wear your new Jr. Faculty Sweatshirt with, Black leggings, tennis shoes (white preferably, but not required)

and any light up or glow in the dark accessories, such as glow sticks, led lights, etc.

Homecoming Choreography

October 13th Update

Homecoming Parade

October 29th

ECPAC was invited to participate in the homecoming parade. I would love to have Jr. Faculty represent ECPAC! It is short notice, but all the more reason to have my right hand helper participate! I will be recording a short routine for you guys to learn to perform. If you are in high school dance line you will not need to participate.

No stress, this will be so much fun!

Little Stars

Sunday December 5th

If you are a TA for a class that is 7 years or younger your class will be beginning choreography in the coming weeks. You will need to know this for their performance. You will also need to write this choreography down in your TA notebooks. If you are unable to attend the actual little stars performance you will need to find a replacement for you, for that day to help your class. If you do not TA a class that is performing in little stars show, but would like to help out please let me know as well.
