Hello Friends~
It has been an exciting , unbelievable and yes very emotional weekend!!!
Anyone following Niu Football knows we won our Championship and are heading to another amazing Bowl Game!!
Here’s the emotional part….our bowl falls on our show day! This has never happened in my 28 years doing this!
So after many tears and sleepless nights…I have decided to do just the one show …Saturday December 18th! I know the dancers will be disappointed as am I …but I am really stuck between a rock and a hard place !!
The only other change (😞)… is moving Thursday tech to Monday , same time!
I completely understand if this does not work for some of you …!!
So ~Act II -Monday 4:30-6:30
Act I - Tuesday 4:30-6:30
I have been on phone calls with Niu to schedule our show (next December) completely away from Bowls …this will not happen again!
My sincere apologies to all of you!! You have alway been an amazing supportive family…!!

12/02/2021

Good Morning Friends....I have a few updates for you!
~First...thank you to those who sent me the KSO flyer asking if I knew about the concert on the same day as our Dress....I did and was told as long as we were out by 1:00 no problem ......well problem....my spidey senses told me to double check this....I was again told no problem......well then the next email came....NIU went to KSO making sure about the 1:00 time.....they said they need to set up at 11:00am.....UGH! Soooo long story short .....we need to move our Dress time from 10:00am to 8:00am.....I am sorry about this inconvenience....but at least we can still have our rehearsal!
~Second-Tickets are now available for purchase.... we have an unlimited amount of tickets and both downstairs and upstairs will be open
~Third-There is a slight typo on the new schedule...the TECH 101 class is 1 hour in length not 30 min ...so the class will meet 6:30-7:30pm.....thank you !!!

11/29/2021
