INDUSTRY COMPETITION TEAMS
ADV INDUSTRY TEAM VIDEO SPOOF – STAY HOME OR CORONA
Dear Parents of our industry team students,
Please find below information on a fun industry team project for all our dancers. Please read the information carefully. In the Google Drive (link below) you will find a copy of the reference video (From Miss Tamara’s daughters Calisthenics club) just to give you some ideas. You will also find the audio and lyric video for our song Corona Matata as well as a video of Miss Stacey doing the choreography for the chorus which all students need to learn.
WHAT TO INCLUDE:
We would like everyone to try and contribute some of the following parts – you don’t need to do all parts – decide what suits you and what is achievable. But have fun with it! You will probably end up sending us lots of short clips (Don’t try and send one big file as we will piece together all the small clips) - instructions of how to send the clips are on the bottom of this notice. PLEASE INCLUDE
Some freestyle dancing – Your own fun made up dancing or you can also pretend to do daily activities with a bit of a boogie, such as cleaning
Some miming – you don’t need to mime a big slab – just do a small section (or multiple small sections) and we will include what we can. If your first name starts with A-K, please mime & Act sections from the start of the song (0:00 to 1:45 in minutes), if your first name starts with L-Z, please mime & Act sections in the 2nd half of the song (1:20 to the end). Hopefully this will help evenly spread the footage. Please play the music while you do the miming & acting clips so we can hear which section you are doing.
Chorey for the chorus – The chorus is choreographed. Watch the video of the dance moves, have a practise and record yourself. You can put your own flair on the moves. Have Miss Stacey’s video playing while you dance as it helps me put it in sync if I can hear the music, it also helps you dance on the beat. Also, please make sure that you have a little bit of intro music on your video to help us when piecing it together.
Playing instruments – real or fake! all of your videos will be muted when they are edited with the music, so don’t worry about making noise. You may like to play the pots and pans drums or the tennis racket guitar etc.
Acting and using props – You may like to include some handwashing, cleaning, sanitising, toilet paper, social distancing, coughing, going outside without a mask and then realising, dancing with a mask on. Let the lyrics guide
Remember, this is not a serious video! We will cut, splice and mix all of our videos together. BE CREATIVE
IMPORTANT Recording tips –
Please have the camera/phone filming in LANDSCAPE (not portrait) to keep the videos consistent.
Don’t be too far away from the camera that we can’t see you properly.
Play the music in the background when you are recording. This will encourage you to move/dance/mime to the correct beat of the music. It also helps me when I’m editing the videos to keep them in sync with the audio.
Please wear ‘ADV” uniform. ATTIRE (ie any ADV uniform items, or adv t-shirt).
Once completed, we will share the vid with all you via an email link and it will also go on ADV Social Media. Feel free to share it yourself as well.
SENDING YOUR FOOTAGE TO US
There’s a number of ways you can send us your multiple files. The easiest way is probably to save it into a file on drop box and send us the link to the file. If you don’t have a drop box account it’s easy to set up a free account. You can also use google drive, or you can send it to us using wetransfer.com (also free). OR if your clips are small enough you can email them to email@example.com. You may find most clips are small and short enough to email. You may need to send through 10 or more clips to us which is fine.
ALL FOOTAGE IS DUE TO BY MONDAY 31st AUGUST.
TERM 3 INDUSTRY TEAMS - COMPETITIONS UPDATE
What a different year this has been so far! And obviously is also far from over. Our competition students worked really hard online and we are looking forward to putting their routines together with greater unison and awesome teamwork in Term 3.
Troupe competitions have started to open with changes to original dates and locations we have reassessed which ones we will be attending. We continue to aim to attend 3 troupe competitions this year and at this stage we can confirm two of them and are hoping to add the third one - we just don’t have all the final details for that one. Please note the following dates below and ensure your competition team member is made available.
REVISED TROUPE COMPETITION DATES
20th September - Spotlight Dance Competition at Doncaster Secondary College: approx $15 per student
2nd to 4th October- Time to Shine Competition at Carwatha Secondary College Noble Park; approx $40 per student
16 - 18th October and 23 - 25 October - Follow Your Dreams Competition (each troupe will be required on one of these dates)
Reminder: ADV will not know the exact time of the competition and sometimes the exact day of the competition until after entries close and the competition organisers send us the lists. As soon as we receive those lists we let all competition team families know.
IMPORTANT REMINDER - ATTENDANCE
A reminder that competition troupe members must have 100% attendance to their troupe classes. As per your original troupe invitation letter this is an expected team commitment from all members. Social events, birthday parties, family events are expected to be forgone if they clash with a troupe class or competition. Although this is the students commitment, it also becomes the parents commitment to ensure their team member is supported in understanding this commitment and assist them in meeting their team member obligations.
REMINDER OF HOME PRACTISE AND VIDEOS ON FACEBOOK GROUP
A reminder that all competition team members are expected to undertake home practise to be sure of their routines. All parents need to join the Industry Team private Facebook group and this is where you can access video’s of the routines for home practise. We also hope to upload 1 copy of each of the final routines to our parent portal on the website under industry teams, however the Facebook industry teams groups is kept constantly updated with video revisions of routines.
Note; Currently the following team members do not seem to be members of the Facebook group which means they don’t have access to the video’s for home practise. Please speak with us if you need help accessing the group: Emily Xu (mini troupe) Isabella Tse (classical troupe), Mavis Deng (Classical Troupe)
MOVIE FILMING DATES
All our competition team students are involved in the ADV Movie “Let Me Be Your Star”. The movie is being filmed during term 3 and a notice is being emailed out these holidays wth final details.

CAN WE WATCH THESE COMPETITIONS?
All competitions currently state that the audience numbers will depend on the Victorian Government rules at the time of the competition. Further information will be provided closer to the date
As always please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions and we will do our best to help!
CLASSICAL TROUPE STUDENTS
Can we ask that all parents with students in the classical competition troupes (Fridays 4pm and Fridays 4:30pm) please make sure they join the ADV Industry team page to ensure your dancer can see the choreography videos that they need to rehearse with in their weekly home practise.
Below is the link to copy and paste into your browser - then request access .
It’s really important that students involved in the competition group do access the videos and practise before their class each week.
