Every year “Dance and the Child International” (daCi) sponsors a statewide dance conference for children in Utah. Their mission is to promote dance for children and excellence in the teaching of dance to children across the United States.
The conference this year is on Saturday, November 3, 2012. It will be held at BYU from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.. The conference is a day of dancing, with workshops in all forms of dance for ages 8 and up. The theme this year is “Stories that Move Us”. The children that attend will be making books that they will be able to bring home. The culmination of the conference is a performance given by the individual groups that attend.
Performing at the Day of Dance is a privilege, as they only invite a few groups in the state to perform each year. Midas Creek has been invited to participate this year. Our 5th grade classes have been learning a dance that goes along with the conference theme perfectly. Because of this, we are giving our 5th grade students the opportunity first to sign up for the conference.
In order to perform we need the children to register for the conference. The cost is $10 per child. daCi is providing a bus for our students to get there and back.
In order to participate we need a commitment for the following:
1. Register for the conference on line. (Details below)
2. Attend 3 before-school rehearsals. (Details below)
3. Be available Saturday November 3rd from 7:30 – 4:00.
We hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity.

When you register your child please specify our school in the School/Group name, so I can know who registered. Only students that register will be able to perform.
