Dear Dancers and Parents,

We would like to wish all of our wonderful dance moms a Happy Mother's Day! We hope that you enjoy the time at home with your wonderful children! It's already Sunday again...you will find our weekly update below. PLEASE TAKE A MINUTE TO READ THIS! There is important information in this newsletter each week.

TROUBLE WITH ZOOM?
We apologize for any trouble that anyone had this week. There were a couple glitches with the new codes that should be all worked out. Some people were also having trouble signing in to meetings on their end. It is best to close ZOOM and even restart your computer if trouble persists. If you need assistance or other suggestions, feel free to email us at any time, massmotion@gmail.com.

PERMISSION TO RECORD:
 We will be recording classes the week of June 8th - 13th for the Virtual Showcase. On occasion, through the next few weeks, we will be recording and compiling footage to use. IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE A PART OF THE SHOWCASE VIDEO AND/OR DO NOT WANT YOUR DANCER TO BE RECORDED, PLEASE INFORM US BY EMAIL IMMEDIATELY. You can continue to take classes, and we will edit out out that footage.



DRESS CODE REMINDER:

CLASSES WILL BE RECORDED THROUGHOUT THE NEXT FEW WEEKS.

Please have dancers wear a leotard for class. We do prefer for dancers to be in their regular studio dress code whenever possible. Shorts and/or black leggings are okay, but we are finding that the sweatshirts, t-shirts and baggy clothing is distracting and makes it difficult to correct posture and position. Hair should also be up neatly and away from the face. Dress code is not required for any of the classes for EVERYONE or HIP HOP.

SHOWCASE T-SHIRTS:
We will be ordering t-shirts for our virtual performance showcase in June. We need to know all of the dancers preferred t-shirt sizes. There is no cost for you! All dancers will receive a #disDance t-shirt. 

If you haven't already, please fill out the form below by Tuesday, May 12th at 4pm. If we don't hear from you, we will order a size for your dancer. Shirts will be available for pick up at your home studio before the showcase. We will make arrangements to do a drive through pick-up.

Additional shirts for any non-dancers can be purchased for $15 each, please see the order form. We will charge your DSP account for additional shirts. 




ONGOING STUDIO REMINDERS

THIS WEEK'S PASSWORD: The password for April 26th - May 3rd will be sent in a separate email. Please remember that the password will change each week.

SCHEDULE: For security reasons, the link to the schedule will be in another email with the password every week. Please check the schedule each week for updated Zoom links, codes and passwords. We do TRY to make the schedule, codes and links consistent each week.

CAMERA "ON" REMINDER: Please make sure all dancers have their camera on while in class. This is so that we can make sure the dancers are taking class, the teacher can offer personalized corrections, and so that we can see who is watching. If your camera is not working or you have other issues, please send us an email.

Summer 2020 - Take Us With You To The Beach or Mountains!
We will announce our 6-week summer session and begin enrollment by May 15th. We are aware that many summer camps and programs have made the announcement that they are cancelled or closed. We want you to know that we will be holding an online summer schedule. Dancers can register for individual classes or an open class schedule.

RECITAL 2020 POSTPONED (NOT CANCELLED): We made the decision to postpone our annual spring recital to late November or early December 2020. We are working to reschedule the date with the school auditoriums and will make an announcement once we have a date. We will still be doing TROLLS (Sturbridge) and SUESSICAL (Boston & Medfield). We are all VERY excited about these shows and cannot wait to perform them for you - as soon as it is safe for everyone.
