Broken Hearts

We are again broken-hearted with the tragic passing of Miss JeriAnn's son, Greg. He is a true hero who will be so greatly missed! Words can't express the depths of sadness and sorrow we feel and our love and prayers go out to the Gray family.

Special Performance Opportunities!!!

Infinity has been chosen as only one of 5 studios in Utah to perform at a special pre-show event for Justin Giles on August 16! Tickets can be purchased at a group rate (15+) for $10. We will be performing Park Bench and Dirty Bit. We will also be performing Dirty Bit at the Pulse in Las Vegas on November 19 & 20.

Teen Company, Senior Company, and Teen and Senior ADP Dancers who can commit to these performances and their accompanying rehearsal schedules are invited to audition for Dirty Bit on Wednesday, July 27, from 8-9 p.m. at the Ogden Studio. Park Bench is not open for auditions and will be performed by dancers who have previously competed in this routine.

*Dancers auditioning for Dirty Bit must be willing to attend the Pulse Convention in Las Vegas. Cost has not yet been posted but is estimated to be $200-250 per dancer, plus performance fee. This convention does not count toward the required team conventions for the upcoming season and is considered optional. Please be aware…

Full Out Fun & Schedule Updates

We hope you had a blast at Full Out! Everyone looked great - special congrats to 2011 scholarship winners:

Izabela Marshall
Evelyn Lowder
Ellie Rose Hadfield

Reminder NO CLASSES will be held July 4-8 and make sure you have Aug. 26 & 27 on your calendar for Dance Fever. Thanks!

Directions to Full Out

Full Out will be held at the Sports Academy in Logan. The address is 1655 N. 200 E. Stay on Main Street as you come in to Logan all the way to 1400 North (by Cache Valley Mall). Turn right (east) on 1400 North and go two blocks. Turn left (north) on 200 East and go 2 1/2 blocks. The Sports Academy is on the left hand side of the street. See you there!

Summer Absence Policy Reminder

Just a friendly reminder dancers are only allowed to miss 3 classes for the entire summer. There are 9 regular class days scheduled and students must attend a minimum of 6. Three excused absences are permitted. Company policy sheet states, "Up to 3 excused absences PER CLASS in the summer and up to 5 excused absences PER CLASS during the school year. Absences must be called into the office and excused prior to the class".

Since our competitions will begin earlier this season, teams are starting choreography now and we don't want your dancer to miss out during this important time. Please check with the office staff if you have any questions.Thanks!!

Full Out Info.

Full Out will be Saturday, June 25, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Sports Academy in Logan (just north of the Cache Valley Mall). Address is 1655 N. 200 E. Be aware that there is a lot of construction on 10th west and that road has been closed so Main Street is probably your best bet. Lunch and a t-shirt are provided for dancers.

General Schedule
9:00 am Registration begins
9:30 am Warm Up
10:00 am Classes start
3:15 pm Showcase

*If you are unable to attend Full Out, you may make up this missed convention by attending Dance with the Judges, on Saturday, September 24, in Logan. Mark your calendars now since this will be the closest, most conveniently-located alternate 1-day convention opportunity.

Dylan's Desserts & Giving Tree for Tyler

Dylan Shaw is SO excited about the Giving Tree for Tyler! He wants to give something special to Tyler because so many people have shown great love and support for him. Dylan wants to pass on the joy and hope he has felt to others so he is making lemonade and treats to sell at the Ogden Studio tomorrow (June 20) from 4-6 p.m. All proceeds from his bake sale will go to Tyler, our 14 year-old friend who is suffering from cancer.

We want Tyler's Tree to be an AWESOME surprise! As you are out and about tomorrow, if you could pick up one small gift card or bring a dollar or two to the Studio for a donation, it would be GREATLY appreciated! Or just come by the Studio and get a few treats for the kids.

Tyler hasn't been feeing well so we want to make this gift extra SPECIAL and get it to him ASAP. Mandy will be putting the tree together Tuesday night so we need all donations to be brought in to the studio Tuesday at the latest. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!

A Call to Action from Mandy

Remember your gift card or dollar donations for the Giving Tree for Tyler (refer to Mandy's recent e-mail). We want to have all items back to the Ogden Studio by Tuesday, June 21. We would love to have all different types of gift cards for stores or restaurants (he loves sports!) or any monetary donations. Even if you could just give $1, that would be greatly appreciated!!

Donations will also be collected at the Brigham Studio and delivered to Ogden. YOU can make a big difference with a small donation :) Thanks for your support - Infinity families are the best!!

Issues with Vendor

We have been notified by our credit card vendor that there was a database error during routine maintenance on their recurring payments site over the weekend, which processed autopays for last season. Due to this error, transaction authorizations were made against some credit cards that were not scheduled for payment.

The processed payments were NOT authorized by Infinity Dance. We have been assured by the vendor that any temporary "holds" or payments that were processed in error will be settled and accounts credited back based on their issuing bank’s policies – typically in three-to-five business days.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, however, we had no control over this situation. We have taken steps to ensure we don't have this issue again in the future with this vendor. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Audition Info. Update

Wow! We had GREAT auditions - what a talented and amazing group of dancers came out!Due to a larger than expected turn out, our auditions took longer than we anticipated. A HUGE thank you all the dancers and parents for your patience and support! We know it was a long night but everyone was so awesome. We didn't feel we could rush through the process and wanted to give everyone equal time to keep the process fair.

The large turn out also makes the job of team placement very difficult, as well. Our judges still have some deliberating to do to ensure we get everyone right where they need to be. We really want what is best for each of you!!Results will be posted on Tuesday, May 31. Thanks, again, to everyone. We couldn't ask for a greater group! Remember, upcoming registration from 5-8 p.m.

June 1-2 Ogden
June 7-8 Brigham

Team placements will be announced Tuesday, May 31. We are anxious for results, too!
