SEPA News – Parade Practice
Parade Practice . . . .
PARADE PRACTICE – Saturday, March 8 at the Fellowship House in Conshohocken.
515 Harry Street, Conshohocken – http://www.thefellowshiphouse.org
Dancers will practice from 9am – 2:30pm.
Younger beginner dancers can come at 12:30pm – ask if you are unsure about the time to have your child attend practice.
If your dancer is participating, it has to be in both parades. We only create on routine for both parades. You can not choose one parade over the other. We do allow our beginner dancers to do only one parade if you feel it would be too much for your dancer.
***Dancers coming at 9am should have a bagged lunch. We will be practicing in the gym so we will be in socks!
***Parents you may drop and run . . . your children will be fine.
If you are a new parent or have not done the parades before the information below is important. If you have a question on if you child can do the parade, just ask!!! We welcome all beginner dancers.
*If you don’t think your child can walk the parade, you are welcome to meet us along the way, just let us know you are doing this.
*If you you do not have a wig, I can tell you how to curl the hair.
*All costume information is below.

We ask that only the dads of our dancers march with us. Dads are to wear the same as our boy dancers: blacks slacks, dark turtle neck and a traditional Irish sweater. Our dads are in charge of security, bathroom runs and coat removal. It is not manadory for each dancer to have a parent march. We always have a very large group of dads. Do not worry if your “dad” is unable to attend.
