Coach Alison and I just got off a call with all of the CDH coaches, as well as, Mr. Archer. We have received the green light from MSHSL to host our summer dance workshop at CDH starting Monday June 15th! PLEASE REVIEW THE ATTACHMENT RELATED TO COVID PROCESS REGULATIONS!

New Cost: $100 (can bring to practice or Venmo coach Sarah)
*If you do not feel comfortable attending practice in person, we will have a zoom feed setup for you, please contact Coach Ali if you would like to attend virtually.
*We are pivoting each and every day on this, there is a small chance we may need to adjust practice times, we will contact you all ASAP if we need to make changes.

Raider Edge is also available starting June 15! We would LOVE for any dancers who are able to attend Raider Edge, we have seen a HUGE impact that strength training has made on our dancer athletes the last few seasons. PLEASE SIGN UP ASAP online (by end of this week if possible)! If enough dancers sign up, they will put you in a “pod” together. Please review attachment related to COVID processes for Raider Edge.

You are required to follow the protocols each and every day that you enter CDH. Please read the attachments carefully so that you are aware of these policies. Also, please make sure to print, sign and bring the COVID release form on the first day that you attend practice.
