Academie Da Vinci will be participating in the
Dunedin Holiday Parade Saturday, December 14th, 2019!
If you are interested in participating with us, please sign waiver no later than Wednesday December 11th. All students and parents must complete this waiver in order to participate - https://schools.scriptapp.com/#/workflow-submission/845222497a3e117b648dc4be38d1dd3fd5ce2fe88
Kindergarten students will ride on the float. 1st - 3rd Grade students will learn choreography in class, and a video of the choreography will be sent out soon so all ADV students in any grade and families can practice together! We love when the parents dance, too! Parents must accompany their children in the parade and can choose to walk/dance and help with crowd control (making sure kids keep moving)
When - December 14th. Lineup is at 3pm, Parade begins promptly at 4pm. You must check in when you arrive. If we do not have your waiver, you will not be able to participate.
Where – Downtown Dunedin, line up information TBA via Constant Contact
Theme – Country Christmas Cookies
Attire – All dancers and parents should dress in blue denim shorts/skirts/jeans/overalls and flannel/plaid shirts. Make sure any skirts have a pair of shorts underneath. Cowboy hats/bandanas will also look great, but be sure to attach them securely so they don’t fall off while dancing down the parade route. Keep in mind the weather. Even if it says it will be chilly, the dancers tend to get hot dancing down the route.
What should I bring? - Just bring yourself and a disposable water bottle. Generally, I never suggest disposable plastics because of the environment, but you will need to carry any items with you and that is challenging while dancing! The bathrooms are also a far walk, so be sure children use the restroom before they come and prior to 3:45pm onsite if necessary. The bathrooms at the stadium will be open, but once the parade begins at 4pm, that's it.
We need your help! For a successful parade, we depend greatly on parent and student volunteers/donations. We will need help decorating, watching the children, handing out candy, asking for decoration donations, etc… Please see this signup to see how you can help! https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0B44AFAE2CA3F58-dunedin
