May Happenings

Hi Studio M Family!

Happy Mother’s Day to all of our AMAZING dance moms!!  We see you & we appreciate you so much!!

We have SOOOOO MUCH happening at the Studio this month so PLEASE read to the end so you have all of the information. 

Studio M Performance Company will be performing in the annual Missoula Lip Sync Battle on May 16th at Ogren Park.  This event is a fundraiser for Camp Mak-A-Dream & is our annual way to give back to the community.  Please purchase tickets to watch via live stream or come support in person!  You can also donate to the cause at the link below.  We are VERY close to reaching our goal of $1,300 & any support is much appreciated.


In the next couple of weeks, each family will receive an email with their dancer’s Student Assessment(s) for Season 2.  This is a helpful tool that can inform you on what your dancer needs to work on plus it will have our recommendations for what class/classes your student should take next season.  We will include the Season 3 schedule plus the class descriptions so you are fully prepared for our VIP registration on June 4th, 4-8pm.  Reminder that you will receive a $15 credit on your account if you register during this time frame. Classes are SURE to fill so don’t miss out on the ideal schedule for your family!

Our last Spirit Week of the season is going to be the PERFECT way to BLAST into Recital!  Spirit Week will be May 17th-21st and we are asking that dancers wear their Studio M gear this week or the following colors: PURPLE, Black, Grey, Silver, White or Dark Blue. Please be sure that basic dress code rules are followed: midriffs & bottoms covered, hair pulled back & appropriate shoes.  GALACTIC GOODNESS all around!

Please join us for an awesome Season 2 Celebration!!  Saturday – May 22nd, 12-2pm we will be having an outdoor party and we want your family to attend! Don’t miss out on pizza, crafts, Tik Toc dances, games & SO MUCH FUN!  Plus, you will be able to grab your recital tickets & your recital tank top early!! Let us show you our appreciation before we head WARP SPEED into the end of the season!

Dress rehearsal will take place at the studio the week of May 24th-May 28th.  Students will come prepared in their costume with appropriate hair, makeup, accessories & shoes.  We will take our individual & group photos and then practice our dances in front of other classes.  Please note that the time may be different than their normal class time.  If you haven’t purchased recital photos, please do so BEFORE photo week.  You can purchase photos in the Parent Portal.  You can find the photo packages by clicking the ‘Classes/Events’ tab in the upper right hand corner of your dashboard.

RECITAL WEEK – June 1st, 2nd & 3rd
Recital week will consist of a 15min staging rehearsal as well as their final year-end performance.  During their staging rehearsal, dancers do not have to wear their costume but they MUST wear appropriate shoes.  We will be staging their dance and letting them practice it a couple of times in the actual performance space.  STAGING REHEARSALS ARE MANDATORY FOR SAFETY REASONS.  If your dancer misses the staging rehearsal, they will not be allowed to participate in the performance.  All staging rehearsals & performances will take place in the UC Ballroom at the University of Montana.
