October 2018 News

Hello Motion Families! It is time to begin another year at Motion, The Studio and this is a year of transition as we expand into our new Carrollton Park location! Please be advised of our two studio locations:
Motion on the Carrollton Square: Our original studio location
1201 S. Broadway, Ste 101
Carrollton, TX 75006
Motion at Carrollton Park: Our new studio location
1235 S. Josey Lane, Ste 535
Carrollton, TX 75006
We are excited to welcome new families and look forward to a fabulous year together! Here are important October updates:
TUITION DUE
For those not on auto draft, this is a reminder that October tuition is due by the 5th or a late fee is charged. Tuition is due by the 5th of each month, even if we are closed for a holiday. You are welcome to call the studio Front Desk at 972-245-6252 M-F 5:30-9pm or Saturday 10-1pm to pay over the phone.
Students more than a month past due are automatically dropped from our system. If the class they are registered in has a wait list, the next child on the list will be moved into their spot. If the dropped student wishes to return, the Registration Fee payment will be required again and, if there is a wait list, they will have to wait for another spot to open back up in the class to return.
If tuition is continually late, you can stop by the Front Desk to fill out an auto draft form at any time to avoid future late fees. Please contact Cindy@abodyinmotion.us for any questions or concerns regarding tuition payments and/or auto draft. Thank you!
DRESS CODE VIOLATIONS
All families received a copy of our Dress Code when their child was registered for classes or shortly thereafter. Please make sure your child is compliant. We have students routinely showing up with the wrong shoes, attire, or hair not secured back away from the face.
DENIM/JEAN SHORTS OR PANTS ARE NOT ON THE DRESS CODE FOR ANY CLASS.
TIGHTS SHOULD BE WORN WITH LEOTARDS. We are dancers, not gymnasts. We wear tights or leggings, please.
We understand that it takes a little time to adjust with the start of the school year, but as we head into October, children in constant violation will be sent back out to parents to be dressed properly. As I tell all my families, you would not send your child to soccer practice in flip flops, blue jeans, or a bathing suit. Motion instructors ask for the same courtesy. Please dress properly for class. Thank you.
OCTOBER CLOSINGS
Please be advised that Motion, The Studio will close Wednesday, October 31st in observance of Halloween. Thank you!

A CHRISTMAS IN MOTION
CHRISTMAS RECITAL FEE DUE BY NOVEMBER 1ST
As we shift to October, all classes will begin working towards our annual Christmas Recital, A Christmas in Motion! It is a popular family event. Even Santa makes a trip from the North Pole to join our production! (Ms Carebear has connections with the big guy!) We are excited to announce that this year’s Christmas Recital will be presented by Music City Mall in Lewisville! (Formerly Vista Ridge Mall) As explained in your registration packet, there is a $50 Christmas Show Fee to participate in our holiday production. Please make sure to have your Christmas Show Fee in by November 1st so we can order your child’s performance shirt with their name on it!
Please mark your calendars:
A Christmas in Motion
Saturday, December 15th
Show Time: 5-7pm
Call Time For Performers: 4pm
This is a mall environment and not a theater. Our show will last about 2 hours. If you wish to watch the entire production, we encourage bringing your own lawn chair or seat to sit in. All seating is on a first come, first serve basis.
There will be an area blocked off in front of the stage so parents can come up front to video their child’s class. Do not worry if you are sitting in the back! We will rotate parents up front to take pictures and video!
We are hoping to keep costs down for studio families and are looking for business sponsors to help cover the costs of stage rental and program printing. If you own a business and would like to be a business sponsor of A Christmas in Motion, please let us know and we will send you more details! Thank you!
