December 2017 News

Hello Motion Family! The holiday season is upon us! Here are some updates for December at A Body in Motion:

TUITION DUE

A reminder for those not on auto draft that tuition is due by the 5th or a late fee is charged, even if we are closed for a holiday. Please make plans to stop by our front desk and take care of your December payment or fill out an auto draft form to avoid late fees. Payment may also be dropped off in our mailbox by our front door.

The studio will be CLOSED January 5th for Christmas Break, but tuition is still due or a late fee is charged. Please plan accordingly with our front desk to ensure your payment is in on time to avoid late fees. Thank you!

ANY STUDENT MORE THAN ONE MONTH PAST DUE IN TUITION IS AUTOMATICALLY DROPPED FROM THE ROLL. Please be advised you will have to re-register your child if/when you return. Full enrollment classes with a waiting list will have the next child on the wait list move in to your child’s spot. For full enrollment classes, you will have to wait for an opening to return. Thank you.

A CHRISTMAS IN MOTION STUDIO PERFORMANCE

SAT, DEC 16TH 2-4PM

A Body in Motion is excited to present our first annual holiday production, A Christmas in Motion, right here on the Historic Carrollton Square! Bring the whole family to camp out by the gazebo with lawn chairs and blankets to watch your child be the star of the show with dancing, cheerleading, baton twirling, singing, acting, and our visiting guest, SANTA!

A Christmas in Motion

Date: Saturday, December 16th

Show Time: 2-4pm

Performer Check-in at A Body in Motion: 1pm

Location: The lawn by the gazebo in the center of the Square

Please check your child in as present at A Body in Motion and then walk across to find a place to sit on the grass by the gazebo. There could be a big turnout so please be courteous to other families who are also looking for a place to sit. We will have space blocked off in front of the stage where parents can come and video up close, their child’s routines. I will call those parents up when their child’s class takes the stage. So do not worry if your view of the stage is not the best!

Required attire:

Performance Shirt (will be passed out in class) If the weather is chilly, they may wear a black mock turtle neck underneath. Please check our studio social media for final confirmation.

Girls: Black Dance Leggings with nude/pink tights to wear under leggings. NO UNDERWEAR! The tights act as underwear! We never wear underwear under dance attire. Thank you!

Boys: Black Sweat Pants

Dance shoes for the classes they are enrolled in according to our studio Dress Code  (Hip Hop classes will need black sneakers and black ankle socks! Cheer will need white sneakers and white ankle socks!)

If you need another copy of the studio Dress Code to make sure your child has the right shoes, please stop by our front desk!

HAIR:

Girls: Hair half up/half down with curls if possible with red sequin bow (will be passed out in class). Stage makeup suggested but not required.

Boys: Hair brushed neatly and out of face.

Don’t forget to visit with Santa, the Motion T Rexs, and the reigning Mrs. Greater Plano, our very own Nicole, from 1-2pm while you wait for the show to start. I will post on the studio Facebook, A Body in Motion the Studio, and the Christmas show Facebook, A Christmas in Motion, if there are sudden changes in the weather and we need to change our plans. Please follow and check in for the most current info!

It’s going to be a great show and such a blessing to celebrate the holiday season together!

CHRISTMAS TREE/STAFF STOCKINGS

Our beautiful Motion Christmas tree is up in the dance studio! We invite our students to make an ornament with their name or picture to hang on the tree! We love home made creative ideas!
