August 2015 News – Registration, Specials, PRO DANCE INTENSIVES, Important Dates

Hello Motion Family! We are rocking and rolling towards the first day of classes! Here are some studio updates:
Final Early Registration: Friday, 6-8pm, and Saturday, 12-4pm.
We will keep registration OPEN when classes start until they reach their peak enrollment. (Ballet I is getting close!) Thank you to those who took advantage of the web site registration link! I hope it made the enrollment process easier not having to fill out the monster packet. Lord knows, we saved a lot of trees!
We have new families that are a little confused about our 30 minute Block Classes. Please keep in mind that we recommend at least one hour per week for children Level I (4-6 years old) and older. It is very hard to teach them much in only 30 minutes a week. Even our Preschool classes are at least 45 minutes! They will not progress as quickly as the students enrolled for an hour or more. So, if you want Ballet I from 6-6:30pm on Thursdays, please consider adding Tap I at 5:30 BEFORE or Jazz I at 6:30AFTER to make it an hour.
If you have only registered for a 30 minute Block for your child, please consider adding a second Block. It will help them progress faster. We understand some of you have tight schedules and budgets. This is just something to consider if dance and cheer is what they love to do. We want them to progress as much as their peers!
We will have batons for students to use in Monday Baton Twirling! But they will have to purchase a baton if they wish to take it home! I have ordered batons for students wishing to buy one.
Here is a reminder of classes we are having discounts/specials on!
Musical Theater (voice and stage acting) at 5:30pm on Fridays is FREE for the month of September! Come try it for a month and decide if it is something your child wishes to enroll in!
