Last week & Last Chance!

Hey Dance Dynamix Family!

Hope you all had a great weekend!

Our Winter Wonderland Lesson Plans are off to a great start!

Your dancers had a great time being dancin’ santa helpers.  It was a week full of imagination as dancers were ice skating, riding sleds, and throwing snowballs throughout class!

Check out how much fun we had in class. Also, we have a few more smiles from Winter Showcase that we knew you just had to see!

Be sure to email us your winters showcase pics to dance@dancedynamixonline.com or text them to 240-343-5389

{IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT}

That’s right, in 2017 we’re moving to a new space that’s being customized just for us!!

Time To Get Ready For The Stage!
As noted on the winter showcase permission slip each dancer is required to wear a nude body liner under their costume rental and nows the time to get those ordered!!

Body Liners are $15

Here are the simple steps for purchasing your dancers body liner:

1. Your dancer’s instructor will hand you a form for the body liner when they come pick your dancer up for class.

2. Fill out the slip. The information on the slip will include:

  • Dancers Name 
  • Class Day & Time 
3. Turn in slip to the front desk and make payment 
4. You will be all set and receive your dancers body liner at their rehearsal class the week of 11/28 – 12/1

Don’t Worry!

If you did not receive a form you will be able to make payment and turn in the form when we return for class the week of 11/28-12/1.

 

**Important**

Since the studio is closed this week 11/22-11/261/26, dancers will have no  “official class” before dress rehearsal for the winter showcase.

Although the dancers are well prepared and we’re sure you’ll be using the practice videos at home during the holiday break, we really want to get the dancers into the studio one last time before they come for dress rehearsals.  For this reason we’ve developed the following rehearsal schedule for the week of the winter showcase.

Having this time will give the dancers the opportunity to:

  • See each other and work together in the same space before hitting the stage at dress rehearsal
  • Have the stage moms become familiar with the dances and dancers
  • Distribute body liners and go over winter showcase reminders

We know having classes during the week to make up for the studio closing after Thanksgiving will set the dancers up for he best possible performance experience.

Below is the schedule.  Look for your dancers regular class time and then see what date and time they are scheduled to have one last in-studio winter showcase class.

IT’S ALWAYS A GREAT TIME TO GIVE TO OTHERS!

2 weeks ago friends of Dance Dynamix had the pleasure of serving at the Central Union Mission Men’s Shelter in Washington, DC.

They donated their time by folding linen and making beds for men in emergency and transitional housing. As they worked, they noticed many of the sheets, blankets, and towels were torn, had holes or were wore thin. By the end of the serving opportunity God placed a burden on their heart to help!
We are collecting 75 sets of  NEW linen and towels and we’d love for Dance Dynamix to partner with them!

You can help by dropping off white twin fitted sheets, white twin flat sheets, white bath towels, twin sized blankets at the studio.

Collection is now through December 3rd at the Winter Showcase. We’ll be making the delivery to the shelter on December 4th.

Donate & Win!
As a thanks for your donation we’re giving away a
$100 Gas Gift Card!!
For each item you bring in a raffle ticket with your name will be entered in the drawing. The drawing will take place on Dec. 3 at intermission of the winter showcase!
Your small contribution is important and will make a huge impact in the lives of others.

Welcome Back to Dance, Family!
We hope everyone had an amazing holiday and we’re super excited to see your dancer back in the studio soon! Hold on tight, and read this message to the very end, we have a lot of important new things to share!!!

Joyful Motion Dance Greenbelt is now Dance Dynamix!

 

This summer our team went on an amazing staff retreat where we focused on our studios core values, the creative curriculum, and together, we developed a new mission statement to reflect what we want each and every dancer in our care to feel & achieve.

FullSizeRender (68) FullSizeRender (67)

Our mission is to provide age-appropriate dance instruction that fosters whole child development and instills confidence, unlocks creativity, improves critical thinking skills, and builds character in a safe nurturing studio environment. We encourage students of all ages and skill levels to have fun while reaching their fullest potential.

Changing the studio’s name was the icing on the cake to reflect our new direction.
In addition, we also have a true focus on building community at our studio; we LOVE the authentic family feel and we have a real focus on giving all our dancers as many performance opportunities as possible and celebrating our dancers as well.
For this reason, on the enclosed revised 2016-2017 Calendar you’ll see performances like
**College Park Day Performance, Sept 24 which currently has 45 dancers participating
**Winter Showcase, Dec 3rd for all dancers to shine on stage in.
And the 1st Annual, Tutu’s & Tuxedos, our studio Awards Gala to celebrate all our Dance Dynamix dancers accomplishments and have some extra special family fun.  More info to come soon!!

PLEASE SEE THE  UPDATED CALENDARPOLICY LINKS
We promise – not much is changing; your parent portal is still the same,
your kids amazing instructor is still the same —
and our team is super excited about all the various improvements and ways to better serve your family!

Here’s what to expect in the studio this week

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.

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.
IMG_0969
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.
FullSizeRender-1 FullSizeRender-2
                      FullSizeRender-4 FullSizeRender-3
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.
IMG_2885 IMG_2865
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.
IMG_2831
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.

IMG_2821IMG_2816

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

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!!!
