Two easy ways to Reduce your carbon foot print..
Bring your own Cup
If you can, please bring your own cup or water bottle to use through-out the weekend. We will have disposable cups on hand but, you know, the less we use the better.

Fragrance Free Event
Please note this is a fragrance free event. Please avoid wearing strong fragrances, including cologne, perfume, oils, etc., to the dance. Many of our dancers have allergies and sensitivities to these hidden chemicals. Thank you for your concern and cooperation.

It takes a village …
Finally we are always looking for more helpers, if you can take a turn at the registration table, sweeping or are able to bring snacks or a brunch item please contact our volunteer coordinator at

HAVE FUN! See you soon.
