Bring a friend week

May 4-9th bring a friend to dance class week!!!! Show off your skills and share your love of dance with friends. Each current DM student is welcome to bring a friend to their class next week. Student’s who bring a friend will get a special treat and of course we will give our guests a special DM gift!!!!

May Tuition

Just a reminder that May tuition is now due. DM will charge a $5 late fee on the 5th day of the month. Accounts still due on the 10th will then receive an additional $5. You can pay by phone, by mail, or at the front desk. Dynamic Movements also offers an automatic payment option.

*CURRENT AUTOMATIC PAYMENT STUDENTS-for the safety and protection of our parents, all automatic payment forms will be shredded after June tuition is applied. A new form will need to be filled out when students register for the Fall Session.

Recital Note

*Students who are not participating in recital-please note that during the month of June, we will be taking pictures and rehearsing our recital routines. We recommend that only students participating in the recital attend classes during the month of June except students in CREATIVE MOVEMENTS, TUMBLE AGES 2-3, ADULT CLASSES AND WORKSHOP CLASSES. The above listed classes will have normal weekly classes in June since we will not be rehearsing routines for the June Recital during class time.

Memorial Day

Dynamic Movements will be closed Monday May 25th. We will hold normal classes on Friday May 22. We will still hold all Saturday classes on May 23.

*No Dance Team Rehearsals but we will hold Conditioning and Tumble classes.

Facebook Spirit Contest

Sport your favorite DM attire during the week of May 11-16th to dance class. Take a picture and post the picture on our Dynamic Movements Facebook page. The Dancer’s picture with the most likes by May 17th will get free June tuition!!! Good Luck 🙂

Our Elite company will also travel to special competition/convention weekends and additional performance/audition opportunities.

*Also new this season, DM is proud to present our Ballet Select Program. This is a new program for students who are interested in focusing on Ballet and Pointe’. In addition to taking Ballet technique classes, these students will also meet for an extra class to learn character, partnering, and classical variations. We will also give these students the opportunity to travel to Ballet Workshops and Auditions. This program is by invitation only and information will be available later this month.
