Columbia Holiday Market 2014 Schedule

Wow!!!! We are 2 weeks away from market. The Junior League of Columbia is very excited for market and we can’t wait for your groups to perform. Just a few housekeeping items:

  1. The sound system will accommodate CD or MP3 player
  2. We will have a piano there
  3. The stage size is 16 x 16
  4. Please send me your address so I can mail the bus parking passes – Also – let me know how many buses you are bringing in
  5. The parents will have complimentary tickets into the market – please send me a list of the performers so I can leave those with tickets. Parents will just need to give their child’s name upon entry

I have attached the Columbia Holiday Market 2015 Schedule for Performers. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. I will mail parking passes as soon as I have your address. I will not be able to leave them at the gate for the buses. Buses will need to enter Gate 1. They will need to drop the children off near the door of the cantey building and then move the bus towards the back of the lot. The driver will need to stay with the bus at all times.

The parking for other vehicles is $2 per vehicle. They will enter the other gate with the main parking.

Update: Rehearsals 9/17 & 9/21

Dear Parents and Dancers,
Due to Ms. Becky’s impending Blessed Event, she will NOT be holding these rehearsals.(baby not here yet, but she is on bed rest)  There will be no rehearsal this evening.  Possibly next Wednesday as Ms. Susan will be taking over some of Becky’s classes, but the twins have a stomach bug, so NOT tonight or Sunday.  We will let you know about next Wednesday.  Your other regular rehearsals – Thursday, Saturday will still be held.
Thank you,
Ms. Debra
