Come join our medieval fantasy epic, Game of Thrones: DanceWorks Edition! December is Student Participation Month, and is full of fun and exciting activities, parties, performances, dress-up events, a Trophy Ball and points for prizes! It’s also time for December Deals, which means savings-savings-savings!
Are you team Winterfell or King’s Landing? Students and their teachers will portray kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men from the North and the South engaging in an entertaining game of shenanigans to determine who will sit atop the Glitter Throne! Don’t know which team you are on? Ask one of your main instructors and they will tell you (or fight over you for which team they want you on!).
Join the competition and rally your troops in winning points for your team throughout the month of December! We have dozens of ways for you to earn points for yourself and your team such as attending classes, lessons, dances, dress up days, social media, and much more! Points will also award you tickets that will be entered into weekly drawings for free private lessons, group classes, and other fantastic prizes! We will also have a grand drawing at the end of the month, as well as the crowning of those with the most points as the ruler of the Iron Throne! Join us!!
Friday Dance Themes and Events
All points acquired during our Student Participation Month are transferred into tickets that students can enter into the weekly drawings held at our Friday dance events throughout December! Attending December’s Friday dance events will be key to earning larger amounts of points through theme dress up, team activities, and other contests. But most importantly, any student who wins one of the drawings MUST BE PRESENT in order to receive their prize!!
12/1 – “The Wolf and the Lion”
Join us for our first “Game of Thrones” themed dance! Come dressed up as lords or ladies to show your support for the North or the South as we kick off this December with a Thanksgiving Leftover Potluck! We will have all sorts of fun activities for all to enjoy as we try to win your support against the other side!
12/8 – “The Old Gods and the New”
Join us and our continued “Game of Thrones” theme with a punny twist! Come dressed as your favorite Pantheon! Whether it be wearing a toga for the Greek God Zeus, robes for Noah and the Ark, or armor for Thor of Asgard, come join us for the party and celebration for our “Trophy Ball” students demonstrating the level they recently graduated out of!
12/15 – “Warriors, Wizards, and Fire-Breathing Lizards”
Join in the magical festivities of fantasy and fun by dressing up as any type of warrior, wizard, witch, dragon, unicorn, or fantasy fictional character for our third Friday party and continuation of our “Game of Thrones” extravaganza!
12/22 – “Winter is Coming…” Coronation Ball
Winter has finally come! Join us in celebrating the end of the year and our “Game of Thrones” themed activities. Come dressed to the 9’s and put on your best suit or your favorite dress as we close out the year in style! We will also be announcing the winner… will it be the North or the South??
Tuesday Dress up Days & Descriptions:
Students and staff will all have the opportunity to gain points by participating in dress up days every Tuesday! Don’t have a class or lesson scheduled that day? You can still gain the points by stopping by and showing a staff member your outfit! Points only apply if the student or staff member wears their apparel to the studio that day! Here are your dates and themes:
11/28- Jammin’ Jammies!
Come to DanceWorks dressed in your favorite pajamas! Onesies, nightgowns, fuzzy PJs, you name it! It’s a day to be comfy!
12/5- Hit the Slopes!
On this day, plan on wearing your winter attire for the snow! Skiers, snowboarders, sled riders, and eskimos are all welcome! Abominable snowmen encouraged!
12/12- Santa’s Workshop!
Christmas is also coming!! Time to put on your Santa hats and reindeer antlers, elf ensembles and snowman attire, or whatever makes you think of the festivities in the North Pole this time of year!
12/19- Ugly Christmas Sweaters!
We can’t forget everyone’s favorite holiday dress up theme for the week before Christmas! Dig in your closet or hit the thrift stores for the ugliest holiday or Christmas sweater you can find and show it off at DanceWorks!
Ways to Earn Contest Points!
Each student must be accountable for their own points, tickets, and showing proof to their instructor of points they earn. Each instructor will have a poster that they will record your points on for each week. For every 10 points, they will receive one ticket. The ticket comes in two pieces – one half will go into the drawing bowl, and the other half the student will keep. Write down or record your ticket numbers! When we draw winning tickets during our Friday night dances, all students will be responsible for looking at their lists of ticket numbers and seeing if they won!
