JOIN US IN THE RIPON CHRISTMAS PARADE!
WHEN: December 9th. Dancers need to arrive at 333 S. Wilma Ave by 5:45 pm. The parade route ends at the Recycling Center. If you’re watching the parade, please sit towards the end of the route so you can pick up your dancer immediately. We will text you when we get there! Please provide an accurate phone number in the sign-up form.
We will NOT be pulling a trailer for dancers to sit on; all dancers will join us in either dancing, walking and waving, or passing out flyers. If your dancer is 5 years old or younger, a parent MUST join us. Parents of older dancers are welcome to join too!
WHAT TO WEAR:
- Dancers will wear their red showcase performance shirt (with any long sleeve UNDER the red shirt if it’s cold), black pants, any good walking shoes, a festive hat (ex: Santa hat, elf hat, or reindeer ears), and a light up necklace. The parade requires that everyone is lit up somehow. Dancers will learn the parade moves in class, or they can learn it from the video here: https://youtu.be/H-ctWfuo3oY Parents, you can learn it too! It’s simple and repetitive 🙂 Young dancers can choose to walk & wave, or pass out flyers instead of doing the dance. It’s easy enough for everyone though so give it a shot! 🙂
