Hey Joyful Motion Dance Greenbelt Family!

Thank you, parents and dancers, for an amazing first week of 2016-2017 classes! 
The dancers were such cute beach babies for their beach week theme and we’re super excited to see how they strut their stuff this week!
Quick Reminders:
unnamed (2)
All classes start with tap. Dancers should be dressed in the lobby with tap shoes on and a dance bag that holds their ballet shoes ready to go for class. To maximize all the class time, we don’t leave the studio; your dancers will independently change their shoes during class.
Dancewear is arriving!!
Please be sure to stop at the front desk to pick-up and sign out any dancewear you have ordered.
Don’t Forget To Pick-Up the 2016-2017 Parent Packets! 
Since the first week of class is over, all parents should have a Parent Packet, which contains all of the policies, handbook, calendar, and more. If you have not received your parent packet, please stop and pick one up at the front desk.
In honor of…

JMDG Takes NYC

In honor of #ThrowbackThursday, we’d like to shout out the Joyful Motion Dance Troupe (JMDT)!
Last weekend, JMDT took New York City by storm 🙂
The dancers had an amazing performance in Battery Park, which is the National that houses the Statue of Liberty.

While in NYC, the dancers also had a private workshop class at Pearl Studios NYC with Ms. Daisy, a member of the Disney’s Aladdin cast, and then later saw Aladdin on Broadway. The best part was the private Q&A session where our dancers heard 1st hand about the discipline it takes to make it as a professional dancer.

But the fun didn’t stop there!
The dancers also had a private backstage tour of Radio City Music Hall and had the opportunity to meet and have a live Q&A with a Rockette, then later saw the Radio City Summer Spectacular featuring the Rockettes.

In between the Joyful Motion Dance Troupe performing live, attending workshop classes with private Q&A’s professional dancers, the families had fun enjoying dinners at the world famous Ellen’s Stardust Diner, Planet Hollywood, enjoy an exclusive NYC tour and while out and about on the streets some of our dancers into American Idol, YouTube, and Broadway star Todrick Hall!

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

That's a wrap.

THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH FOR AN AMAZING RECITAL!!
It’s always amazing to sit back and watch the show come together.  Dancers from as young as Twinkle Tots rocked the stage with Beach Baby to our Tween dancers who tore up the stage with Whomp There It is.

The difference between Dress Rehearsal and Recital is usually night and day and Recital 2016 may have been the smoothest show to-date and we have you to thank for that!!
Parents, thank you so much!
Dance Year 2015-2016 was a great one. We enjoyed every minute of it with you and your dancers! From learning to tie and sew ballet shoe laces to giving high fives of encouragement – YOU made this super successful dance year possible. Thank you so much.
From the first day of class, to learning new friends, to parents days, to student appreciation day to Recital, you and your dancers were a JOY to work with.

We hope the memories made this year and lessons learned through dance will be etched in your hearts for years to come.

 
 
The studio is closed for regular class through July 10, 2016 
 
The 2016 – 2017 Dance year Kicks off on July 11, 2016,

Dress Rehearsal Reminders

Happy Monday Dance Family,

WOW!!  What a blast we had this past weekend.  It’s so good to see the dancers preparing for their show and having some good ole’ fun!!  Large events and schedule changes are always a major undertaking and we thank you all for being such amazing dance family.
If you snapped any pics on Saturday feel free to email them in.  We’d love to include them in a year end collage.
Today’s the first day…..DRESS REHEARSAL!!!
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ THE 
“WHAT TO EXPECT” ATTACHMENT 
keep-calm-its-only-dress-rehearsal
If your dancer is in the Saturday 1:30 show, dress rehearsal is Today Monday, June 13th at 5:30.
If your dancer is in the Saturday 6:00 show, dress rehearsal is Tuesday, June 14th at 5:30.
It breaks our heart when a dancer can’t participate in the recital. Please prevent us from having to turn away sad and disappointed faces by being at dress rehearsal!
Stage moms please plan to be at dress rehearsal by 5:00 — we can’t send dancers back to the holding area until you arrive.  Help us keep the show moving on time!
 
You will be able to view and buy your dancers’ Picture Day photos at dress rehearsal.
