Welcome to Art in Motion’s 2023 Summer Recital.
We are so happy that you can share this special day with us. We are incredibly grateful for your support, your kindness and your energy.
Before I begin I would like to thank our amazing teachers who have worked so hard each week, sharing their love of dance with our students.
Big thanks to all of our students, our kiddos and adults, who are bravely stepping out to strut their stuff!
Many thanks go out to all my helpers today. I could not do this without you! Thank you for running music, Greg. Thank you for working the door, Bailey and Leah. Thank you for wrangling students and costume changes, Alexa, Carolyn, Tricia, Simon, Cindy, Jacqueline, Bailey, and Shanna. Thank you to Shanna and Bailey for working through costume adjustments with me! And thank you to everyone watching today…you make us feel like dancing!
And now for the show! Each set is between 25-30 minutes with an interactive demo embedded into each. We have a raffle for original art works and we will take dancer photo packages during intermissions and after the show. Please come on down and join us or dance in your seat
