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)

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are there any exceptions for the vaccinated only participation?

Not at this time. Sister Kate is a dance company of mothers, doctors, and immunocompromised loved ones. We take health and safety very seriously and watch out for one another as much as we can. We appreciate your understanding.

What routine will we learn?

January/February’s hot jazz boot camp will be a celebratory, playful, and fun original choreography by longtime Sister Kate members Robin Nunnally and Meg Taylor (who will also be your teachers for this round)!

Check out the song we’ll be using (by New Orleans musician) Richard “Piano” Scott: “Take a Little Trip to New Orleans” 

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 this performance – have SO MUCH FUN putting together your own mardi gras look! Feathers, beads, fringe, ruffles… it’s all encouraged.

  • The only thing you must do is stick to the color scheme: GOLD, PURPLE, and GREEN.

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! We do have a requirement that if you are sick and need to miss the final class, that you unfortunately will need to step out for the performance.

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. If at any time you need to step aside to grab a drink of water or go to the washroom, please do at any time!

COVID GUIDELINES

Sister Kate Dance Company has been busy following the CDC guidelines + suggestions from medical professionals within our dance community, while also listening to dancers in our community who are immunocompromised and their needs.

UPDATED: August 2022 for SKDC

  • This class will be in person, with all students being required to show proof of vaccination (including boosters) before the start of class, and all students and teachers wearing masks during class sessions.
  • *** NEW: If, in the event that the CDC opens up omicron-specific boosters between the time of your ticket purchase and the class series occurring (and you receive said booster), you may opt to test out of wearing a mask (by showing us your updated vaccine card + a negative home rapid test) for classes and for the performance.
  • In the event that the CDC and King County Public Health deem it is unsafe to continue dancing indoors together, we will shift to virtual for the remainder of the class and for the performance.
  • In the event that you test positive for covid and have been in class with us in the most recent 3-4 days, please do let the instructors and co-students know, so that we may all choose to get tested if individuals feel they would like to. Our biggest priority is safety for our community. Thank you for helping us to keep it safe!
