Truman State University Homecoming Parade Details

All PEOPLE IN MOTION DANCERS will be marching in the 2016 Truman State University Parade Saturday, October 22.

Before Parade

We will meet at the Studio at 8:00 a.m.

The parade is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m.

We will walk to our starting position as a group and would like our PIM 1 dancers to have one of their parents accompany them to the starting position – PIM 1 parents can leave us once we are in position (unless you feel like your dancer needs you to be at hand as we are marching).

During Parade

We are entry number 31 in the parade, in the first third of the parade. Cheer on our dancers as they pass!

After Parade

A parent for each dancer must be at the end of the parade route by the Red Barn on South Franklin Street past the Franklin and Patterson Streets intersection. Please be there to pick up your child by when we are done with the parade route, rather than when the whole parade is over.

We will take a group photo of all of our PIM DANCERS and then release them to their parents. Please don’t be one of the couple of parents who is not there because it creates real anxiety for our dancers who must then walk back up the entire parade route with Miss Marcia to the Studio).
