Our Spring Fundraiser is under way!
We are selling Fredericksburg Farms Gourmet Foods as a way to earn money for banquet expenses and line camp next year. Each dancer is expected to participate. We've set a team goal for each dancer to sell $75 worth of product. Dancers may also collect donations which count towards the $75 goal. Packets will be sent home today and tomorrow. Feel free to look up more info on the online link: http://www.fbgfarms.com/gourmetfoods.php
Staying in shape, and improving flexibility, need to be weekly goals for all!!
I want to encourage all Majestics to continue taking dance classes during the summer. I know that it is hard to commit to summer classes due to vacations and travel arrangements. Luckily we live in Austin, where there are many studios that offer drop-in classes, or week long dance camps, where your daughter will be able to stay in shape and get customized instruction. Here are some of my suggestions to consider:
- One way to increase flexibility is to take part in a yoga or pilates class. We are lucky to have Melinda Kirchhoff (mom of one of our new Majestics) who is a certified yoga instructor at Bodhi Yoga studio. This Friday evening, Mrs. Kirchhoff will be leading a super fun "Teen Glow and Flow". Pre-registration is heavily encouraged as space is limited. You can register online, or call Melinda at 512-608-3318. For more information, go to www.bodhiyoga.com.
- BHumn Dance productions is a studio that offers a drill team camp which specializes in drill/dance technique similar to our own. Go to http://www.bhumndance.com/DanceSpace/index.html for more information.
- Dance Institute is offering a new Jazz class specifically for Middle School Dancers. The class will meet each Thursday night from 6:30-8pm. Classes will begin on June 12th and will run until August 2nd. For more information, go to danceinstitute.com.
Also, I want to announce that I got married this past Saturday!
My new name is Kelly Mabry, however, in order to prevent any missed communication, my email and contact information will stay the same until August of 2014. I will continue to use Kelly Payne for the rest of the school year.
