Cougar Dance Team Summer Camp July 9-12**

Cougar Dance Team camp will be in the dance portable at the start of each day. You can drop off your child directly at the portable. (The front of the school will be closed).
Please remember to bring your dancer's completed Physical on the first day of camp if you have not already turned it in. The district requires this to be complete before your child can participate in team activities. 
Dancers need to wear their grey Cougar dancer t-shirt and black leggings the first day. Bring jazz shoes and tennis shoes. Hair needs to be up in a ponytail, or pulled back away from face (for dancers with shorter hair).
Dancers also need to bring a sack lunch, snacks, and plenty of water each day. (There is no refrigerator during the summer, so please plan accordingly.)

Here is the schedule for camp:
Monday, July 9           8:30-4:30
Tuesday, July 10         8:30-4:30
Wednesday, July 11   8:30-4:30
Thursday, July 12       8:30- 1:30 

On Thursday July 12th there will be an informal showcase of the choreography learned during the week. Family and friends are welcome to attend. Please arrive by 1:30 and use the outside staircase on the west side of campus (closest to the dance portable) to access the big gym for this showcase. We will finish by 2:30 at the latest that day. 

Please be sure to arrive ON TIME each day. We have many fun team building activities planned and the dancers have A LOT of choreography to learn, so punctuality is crucial!
