SKDC Boot Camps

Sister Kate Dance Company Boot Camps are a chance for you to get to experience what it’s like to be a Vintage Chorus Line Dancer!

Over the course of 4 weeks, you will:

  • Learn an original choreography, choreographed by a Sister Kate dancer
  • Work on performance presence on stage.
  • Connect with other eager and enthusiastic dancers in town
  • Perform in front of a live audience (or record yourself dancing the routine and be included in the ultimate music video for the project, depending upon CDC guidelines and Covid safety precautions)!

February 2022 Boot Camp

Please note, our in-person boot camps moving forward will be only available to those that are fully vaccinated (including booster if over 6 months from 2nd shot) and can provide proof of vaccination before the first day of class. Thank you for understanding as we continue to battle this worldwide public health crisis. 

Currently, our plan for our February Boot Camp is to meet IN PERSON, vaccinated AND masked, unless we are directed by the CDC (and otherwise advised by dancers who are in the medical industry) to no longer meet in person out of safety. Should that occur, our class will shift to virtual remote. As our students, your safety is our top priority. 

WHEN

Wednesdays in February 2022!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are there any exceptions for the vaccinated only participation?

Not at this time. In the future, once the CDC and data says otherwise, then we can re-examine the potentiality of opening up the boot camps without the need to check vaccination status, but at this time, per all the science and data trends, vaccinated only (+ booster) AND masked is the only way to be the safest for everyone in our community involved. 

What routine will we learn?

This class will be an original 1930s Ziegfeld Follies inspired fan dance number. Choreography by Sister Kate founding member, Robin Nunnally!

Class will be taught by SKDC members Robin Nunnally and Kara Menzer.

What will I wear?

For class sessions, wear anything comfy that you can move and sweat in. We recommend that you wear the shoes you will perform in (a black t-strap heel) so you are accustomed to how they will feel.

For the performance, we will be asking students to purchase a specific black convertible wrap dress, priced between $20-30. Please wait for us to send the appropriate outfit link(s) before making any purchases.

We always read all the product reviews and do our best to find a costume that will celebrate many different body forms. If you have any questions/concerns around costuming, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us: SisterKateGirls@gmail.com.  

Do I have to perform or can I just take the class for fun?

It is not required that you participate in the performance to take the class, although what’s the fun in that?

Can anyone perform?

As long as you are willing to wear the “costume look”, and attend all the class rehearsals (unless sick), then you’re absolutely in for performing!

What if I have other questions later?

You can post them to our student Facebook group, or email us at sisterkategirls@gmail.com

PHYSICAL DISCLAIMER

We’ll start off each class with some sort of warm-up, whether that be a freestyle dance or simply running the routine we’ve learned.

Please note that due to our limited time together, we don’t have time to stretch while together, so please make sure to stretch on your own after class.

COVID SAFETY

Sister Kate Dance Company has been busy following the CDC guidelines and suggestions from medical professionals within our dance community.

Currently, we meet IN PERSON, vaccinated (NEW for JANUARY 2022: including all up to date boosters if you are over the 6 month mark from your 2nd shot) AND masked, unless we are directed by the CDC (and otherwise advised by dancers who are in the medical industry) to no longer meet in person out of safety. Should that occur, our class will shift to virtual remote, even if that happens mid-way through the series. As our students, your safety is our top priority.

CODE OF CONDUCT

We treat each other and ourselves with respect and compassion. We strictly prohibit discrimination and harassment based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender expression, disability, or any other status protected by federal, state, or local laws.
