Film Crew

Two of our dancers, Malece Miller and Diego Ballesteros, have been selected to participate in a documentary film on dance. Occasionally, there may be a camera crew on location at the Studios recording their classes and rehearsal sessions. When this is the case, we ask dancers, as always, to be on your best behavior, work hard in class, and be respectful.

*Please be aware that the master class with Tadd may be filmed. If you do not want your dancer to be recorded, please notify a teacher or the office staff.

Master Class with TADD!

Remember the master class with TADD from SYTYCD this Wednesday, 2/22, from 8:00-9:30 p.m. at the Ogden Studio. He is so excited to work with our dancers! Please make sure you bring cash payment of $15 to Angie no later than Wednesday - this cost can't be posted on account.  EVERYONE is invited and it's going to be a BLAST! We are super lucky to have this opportunity so don't miss out!

Missing Eye Shadows

Celene Allen is missing several Mac dark shimmer eye shadows from the Dance for Life competition. Please check to see if they accidentally came home in your bag. If you happen to find them or know where they are, she would be very grateful to get them back. Thanks!

Utah Dance Fest Reminders

The routine fee amount for Utah Dance Fest was inadvertently listed incorrectly on the competition schedule and I apologize for this oversight. Team cost per routine is $16 for small, medium & large teams (10+ dancers) and $18 for x-small teams (less than 10 dancers). Be sure you have April 13 & 14th on your calendar. Fees are due 2/21 and we appreciate those who have made payment already. 

Solo forms are available in both offices. This competition fills up VERY quickly with solos so please get your paperwork in early! Due to overwhelming demand, they are not usually able to accommodate late entries. Cost is $65 for solos and $50 each for duo/trios. Forms and additional information are also available on-line at Be sure to select Stage Competition.
We will be reserving a block of hotel rooms at the Best Western for anyone interested in staying overnight in Logan the weekend of Utah Dance Fest. Please let Angie P. know by 2/29 if you would like a room…

More Dance for Life Info.

Important Competition Info.
There have been problems previously at the Browning Center with the audience and dancers being very messy and disrespectful to the property at Weber State.

This is a fine arts facility and a very nice venue with strict guidelines. Entry is allowed in between routines only.

PLEASE talk to your dancer about how to conduct themselves. We need everyone to do their part in keeping the auditorium and the dressing rooms clean. Also, do not allow your dancers to run the halls unsupervised. We are asking that students remain in the dressing areas around performance times and sit respectfully and watch the dances during the rest of the event.

BE SURE TO COME with your make-up and hair already done. There won’t be mirrors in the classrooms and we don’t want any make-up in the carpets. We also had a huge problem last year with garbage. Please ask the students to throw away all wrappers and cans or bottles. There will be NO food or drinks allowed in the auditorium.


Routine List

Routines in the top section are the Brigham Studio Companies and the lower section are the Ogden Studio Companies.

Hotel Info. for Utah Dance Fest

If you are interested in staying in Logan for Utah Dance Fest on April 13 & 14, we are checking on a discount rate for a block of rooms. The Best Western gave us a great deal last year and it was a very nice hotel. If you want to book a room, Angie is making a list and will make the reservation. Please let her know by Feb. 27 since the hotels in Logan fill up fast for this event.

Competition Hair & Make Up Info.

Competition HAIRSTYLE for all teams is a STRAIGHT middle pony with hair slicked and parted on the left. The only hair accessory is the rhinestone pony holder (no rhinestone bobby pins this year). Please slick hair in front and pin with regular bobby pins to match your hair color. Use gel or product as needed so there are NO flyaways. If your hair is not long enough to put in a pony, slick and part on the left and pin back on the sides so all bangs and hair in front is secured off of the face.
Remember, PERFORMANCE MAKE UP includes foundation, brown tones of eye shadow, black eyeliner, false eyelashes, blush, and bright red lipstick with shiny gloss or liplock.
ACCESSORIES-diamond earrings REMOVE ALL NAIL POLISH on finger and toenails
MAKE sure you have all SHOES AND TIGHTS and a nude bra with clear straps, if needed.
