Dear Parents and Dancers,

This is my very favorite time of the dance year! I am so excited for all of our upcoming performances and competitions! Our dancers and teachers are working so hard on their choreography and our technique teachers are pushing our dancers just as hard as ever. Our ballet teachers are in full swing working on our first ever full story ballet for the June concert! Part of our Year-End Concert will be the ballet production of Peter Pan and it is going to be wonderful! This experience will really help our dancers fall in love with ballet! All our dancers in a ballet choreography class will have a special part. Thank you for all your hard work and support!

Love, Melanie

Dear Parents and Dancers,

This is such a wonderful time of year! The studio is filled with happy holiday tunes and costumes. The dancers are excited for their first performance and eager to have an audience. This concert is short and sweet and not as technical as our other concerts, but always delightful nevertheless. It is always valuable for dancers to have the experience to perform on stage. eMotion continues to be a happy place for our dancers where they are making special friends and gaining self esteem. We are committed to giving them the very best instruction possible with our exceptional instructors. Thank you for being a part of the eMotion Family.

October Newsletter

Dear Parents and Dancers,

We are well underway now and the dancers are already feeling the excitement of our upcoming Christmas concert and competitions. The teachers are using every minute to teach choreography so we ask our dancers to attend every class. We are so lucky to have teachers who start early and are serious about helping our dancers look their best. Be on time and be there every time! That is how we get the most out of dance! October is going to be a fun month at the studio!

Dear Parents and Dancers,

Can you believe that summer is all but over?! I hope you had some fun and I hope all you dancers kept active and stretched everyday. If not... start now and getting back into dance classes won’t be as big of a shock to your bodies. It is sure to be a fantastic year! Our teachers have been busy choreographing exciting new dances. Peter Pan, our story ballet, is underway and will be started in the fall. Having the best teachers in the state of Utah is what makes eMotion so great! We sure are lucky to have each of them. Everyone get ready to work hard, make new friends and have lots of fun!

We love you and we have missed you!

June Newsletter

Dear Parents and Dancers,

Here we are… the last week of dance 2012-2013. It has been a productive and fun year filled with lots of friendship and great dance moments. I have seen our dancers red faced and sweaty and loving that dance is hard work. I have watched them laugh, hug, scream, and have the best of times together in and out of class. It is heart warming to see how much they enjoy being at eMotion. I love it and I especially love them! My heart is always full during this time as I watch our high school girls move into dreams fulfilled. We are excited for them to dance for their schools, but we are so sad to see them go. We hope they will remember their eMotion family and visit often and take technique classes.

Have lots of fun this summer! It is always shocking how quickly it goes and we are back together again for another wonderful year.

Lots of love,
Julie Brown

Dear Parents and Dancers,

This is the time of year at the dance studio that we recognize just how far we have come. Our dancers have worked hard and our teachers have skillfully planed classes that have helped them reach new levels of artistry and technique. We are so proud of these accomplishments. Progress is evident in class, at competitions and performances. Although it is our goal that are dancers have a happy, self-esteem building experience filled with friendship and fun... we want results! We are serious about training talented dancers. I know you will agree that our teachers are the best to be found. As we approach our last four weeks of this dance year, we hope you will take advantage of every minute. We are pushing to achieve our program goals and eager to prepare dancers for tryouts. Thanks for being part of the eMotion family as you each mean so very much to us.

Lots of love, Julie Brown
