Announcement from the Director

Almost there, the dance floor's calling!

After the survey and receiving phone calls, emails and text messages, it’s clear most of our parents and students would feel more comfortable starting back at a date later than May 26th. With that being said, we will absolutely start back Monday, June 8 UNLESS the virus dictates otherwise.

If we change the start back date again, we will contact you all directly and post updates to the website accordingly. In pushing the starting date back to June 8th, we at Art In Motion agree that it would give us more time to see if the virus continues to decline and help keep us all as safe as we can be while we all wait this out.

Starting back on Monday, June 8th, allows us 9 weeks to prepare for recital, which is the same amount of time we have had for all our recitals in the past. Students are allowed to miss two (2) weeks of lessons and still be able to attend the recital.


Recital Information

We will have one show this year on Sunday, August 16th, at 4:00pm, and one dress rehearsal on Thursday, August 13th, times TBD.

Recital Tickets

Recital tickets will go on sale July 20th, 2020.

Recital Pictures

Recital pictures will be taken at the studio by appointment only, and scheduled at times and on dates closer to recital. Details will be given out in July.

Recital Costumes

Reminder: if you feel your child will outgrow costume please bring to studio when we reopen and I will try to exchange. If we're unable to exchange the costume, we recommend two great seamstresses from our studio we have relied on in the past, and their contact information will be provided to those upon request if and when need be.

2021 Recital

The big cat's officially out of the bag! Our 2021 recital will be based on The Lion King, titled "Circle of Life". Life, just as the show, must and will go on!


Dance Class Updates and Notices

Our classes will be smaller this summer. If possible, we might combine those classes when and where we can. I will consult with each parent individually to ensure feasibility, consensus, before making and announcing any such changes. For the first week back we will go by the regular schedule.

All Kinderdance Classes

To cut down on contact with our Kinderdance classes, we will alternate Ballet and Tap lessons as follows:

  • Kinderdance Ballet: June 8th, June 22nd, July 6th, July 20th, August 3rd
  • Kinderdance Tap: June 15th, June 29th, July 13th, July 27th, August 10th

We will send out emails prior to each week to remind you:

  1. which shoes your child should wear before bringing them into the studio
  2. to label your child's water bottles with their full name
  3. to leave dance bags at home, bringing with you only the correct shoes and a single, labeled water bottle

We will have a station set up where water bottles will be placed, and the station itself will be cleansed with disinfectant as well as flashed with UV light to ensure all microbial nasties are removed and incapable of lingering at the station itself. The UV wand we will be using does not cause harm upon human contact and may be used by parents at the station if they wish, and is designed specifically for close-contact sanitation. It will not be used on any children at any time, only objects at the station once children are well away from the station itself.

Online Video Classes

We will be released the third session of online instructional videos this week, and again will continue to keep releasing these bi-monthly for the remainder of the season leading up to the recital. Specifically:

  • Session #1: April 13th, 2020 - April 27th, 2020
  • Session #2: April 27th, 2020 - May 11th, 2020
  • Session #3: May 11th, 2020 - May 25th, 2020
  • Session #4: May 25th, 2020 - June 8th, 2020
