Choreography for Comp Girls

Hello Parents! It is time for the girls to start learning their floor routines for the 2012/2013 season. For those of you who are not familiar with the process, the girls will first choose their music and then learn their routine during a 2 hour session, then finally attend a “clean up” session for 1 hour which should take place at least 2-3 weeks after they have learned the routine.

The cost is $200.00 which includes finding and editing the music, the 2 hour learning session, the 1 hour clean up session, and maintenance of the routine throughout the competitive season. The girls will be given about 3 songs to select from (although this may be fewer for younger or more inexperienced athletes) and they will also need to sign up for a date to learn the routine. A sign-up sheet will be posted on the white board on June 4, so make sure you have chosen a date to learn and a date to clean-up before you leave on holidays!

Please ensure routines are paid for prior to or on the day of the 2 hour learning session and that cheques are made out to Katie Castle. If you have any questions or you are unable to find a date to suit your needs you can email me at
