News Update and Important Information

June 8, 2020

As everyone knows, the last 7 or so weeks definitely have not gone as expected. This is typically our busy season with picture day, rehearsals, recitals and so much more excitement. Although, this year looks a little bit different we still want our students to be excited and know that they are a part of a loving and supportive community! Together we can get through this difficult time. All of our staff hopes that we have been and will continue to be a bright light during this dark time and that we are able to help yourselves and your children continue to have some sense of normalcy during this time. Although this year's recital may not look like it normally does we are working on a few different options so that the students can still perform! We are crossing our fingers and hoping this can take place at some point from mid to late June - with some restrictions in place of course. Please stay tuned as we will be sorting out some more details in the near future. If you still have not joined our closed Facebook Group, "Higher Movement Studio Families," please do so as it is a great way to connect with other studio families as well as hear about any upcoming news! Thank you again. We love and miss every single one of you. Please stay safe and healthy and we can't wait to see you back on the dance floor very soon! -Miss Kirby As everyone knows, the last 7 or so weeks definitely have not gone as expected.
