January 2018 Updates/Texas Legend’s Performance Opportunity

Hello Motion Family!
 Well, the weather ended up not cooperating with us Saturday. I probably jinxed it when I made the statement, “The weather is PERFECT!” I am sorry if your child’s classes were in the last quarter of the show. Northside Baptist Church and the Music Institute had to pack up their sound equipment. They can’t have all those cords out in the rain. I tried to get what classes I could in before the stage was too slippery and the speakers were unplugged. When planning and outdoor event, you just can’t control how the weather is going to go. I am proud of my little ones who refused to leave and stuck it out till the end! I performed in some very cold and wet outdoor events when I was young and those were some of my favorite memories with my friends. I hope, at least, the parts of the show we were able to complete were enjoyable.
To those parents who volunteered to help me with set up or tear down, even in the rain, or giving words of encouragement, THANK YOU. I appreciate your kindness and patience so much!
We are already discussing how to improve the event for next year. And…I suppose we will wear turtle necks and plan for worst case scenario even if the weather app says 80 degrees! Lol.
 
Here are a few reminders as we head into our holiday break:
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 January 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.

We ALWAYS have a blast at the Texas Legend’s games as they have rides, bounce houses, and other family friendly activities to participate in while watching a great basketball game and taking photos with the Legend’s cheerleaders. Make our Dance Clinic apart of your holiday break! Reserve your spot NOW as the clinics fill up fast! 
FAQ: What if my child doesn’t want to do the clinic. Can we just purchase discounted tickets from Motion and just go for fun? YES! We have a contract with the Texas Legend’s for this game only. We can sell as many discounted tickets as we need to because our students are performing. Contact Carolyn@abodyninmotion.us about additional tickets. I have to reserve the number of discounted tickets and pick them up in advance.
We hope you and yours have a blessed and wonderful holiday season. When we return in January GET READY! We will be heading into RECITAL SEASON! We will be at a brand new theater venue and expanding to three shows! More info to come.
As always, thank you for being a body in MOTION!
