This group is the ‘next step’ for members in grades approximately 2 through 4. Like Genesis, this program will take a child and their parent(s) through all types of music and give a hands-on experience to the multitude of percussion instruments that are used in music around the world, but with some more advanced concepts being introduced along the way. This group may perform shows at various local/nearby events during the season.
Starting in November and running through April, rehearsal for Next Step will be held on Saturdays from 9:00 am – 10:00 am at Faith Lutheran Church, 601 N Cliff Avenue, Sioux Falls. All rehearsals will be held at this location unless there is a scheduling conflict. Notice of any changes will be sent out via email as soon as that information is made available. Alternate rehearsal location is Sioux Empire Fairground National Guard Armory Building. Check the Events Calendar regularly for location updates.
The Next Step uniform is a black Groove t-shirt, Groove hat, black wristbands, blue jeans, black & white Converse All-star shoes (or something comparable), and sunglasses of your choice. The Groove t-shirt and hat are available through Groove, Inc. The cost of the uniform is not included in the dues amount and is the responsibility of the group member to purchase.
Winter line (November-April) membership dues are $95/month. The first month’s payment is due at the first practice/drum checkout. 4 ACH payments are set up to follow for December, January, February and March. Pay in full by November 30 and receive $50 off.
