New Companies!

Congratulations to our new 2012-2013 Company members!

Dear Dancers and Parents,

Congratulations to each of you for making a company at eMotion! We are so thrilled about our plans for you in the coming year and want you to know that we are going to work you hard! Don’t worry… It is going to be fun too! We are serious about your futures as dancers and are working daily on our new curriculum to be sure you get the most out of every minute of dance and that ambitious goals are in place. Please stretch out every single day and stay active so you are ready to go into August with gusto! This is our technique month and it is mandatory, as we will start choreography in some classes on the first class in September. If you are planning a vacation in August and cannot change it… we will double up your classes over 2 weeks instead of 4.

We realize that change can sometimes be hard and at first discouraging, but many dancers who were upset in the beginning of last year found that they were actually in a company that really pushed them and they had a great experience.

It is true though, that in a few cases each year, we decide to make changes at the end of technique month. Please let us know if you feel you are a dancer we really need to watch carefully during those weeks. We want everyone to get as much out of this coming year as possible.

We are so excited for each of you and the new friends and experiences you will have.

Lots of Love,
Julie and Melanie

June Newsletter

Dear Parents and Dancers,

It’s June! Wow what a wonderful year with all of you, filled with great memories. Thanks to all our parents for endless support, and our dancers for constant joy and endless energy! We love you! This has been an amazing year at eMotion with so much progress. We have noticed great improve- ments in our dancers... not just turns, leaps and tricks, but in the maturity of movement itself. Congratulations to all our company dancers on a fantastic competition season! We were proud of and thrilled with everyone. We all owe appreciation to our fabulous teachers who have given with all of their hearts this year. We are so lucky to have such excellent professionals in every genre. It is with a big sigh I say goodbye to the choreography we love and look ahead to next year. Without question, it will be better than the last as usual. We love our dance family and thank you all for the special place you have at eMotion.

Lots of love, Julie Brown
