Dance 2015 - Disney Flyer editedBe sure costumes are:
– Modest and decent;
– Fun (not scary or gruesome);
– Neat, clean; fit properly;
– In compliance with dance dress code requirements.

Just to clarify how the Costume Contest will work….  You show up in costume, pay $2, and present your three COSTUME CONTEST ENTRY FORM.  Judging will be based on your costume and presentation.  Your presentation could simply be the way you handle and present yourself.  You may want to bring a picture of the character in case the judges are unfamiliar with it.  You also have the option to include props, sing part of a song, or add music to your presentation. Each person will be allowed 60 seconds for their presentation… and of course, the more that you add to your presentation, the more points you are awarded.  The 1st place winner will be awarded $25, 2nd place $15, and 3rd place $10.  If you’d like to participate in the Costume Contest, please contact Melanie ahead of time.

Note from the homeschool dance host, Melanie:

I have been hosting the homeschool dances for going on 2 years now.  It has been a great experience for me and I have gotten a chance to get to know many of you on a personal level.  You truly are a great bunch to entertain 🙂

With that said… I want to give all of you a fair and advanced notice that this year’s December dance will most likely be my last.  I use the words “most likely” because I cannot say for sure that I will never host another….  However, I will not be holding them every other month as I have in the past.

I am giving you this notice so that you may take this opportunity to attend as many dances as possible before this year comes to an end. 
Thanks again to all of you that have attended the dances – and to all of the parents that have, so generously, helped out!!  I couldn’t have done this without you!!
