Costume & Photo Week at the Studio
May
14
to May 18

Costume & Photo Week at the Studio

It's a "mini-dress rehearsal" at the studio and an opportunity for parents to snap Class Photos of your child's dance class for a keepsake from the 2017-2018 Dance Season!

1. All students should ARRIVE to the studio on their class day, already dressed in their first (or only) class costume of the night.

2. If you have multiple classes - bring all other costumes hanging and labeled neatly in a garment bag.

3. Parents are invited into the classroom for the first 10 minutes.  The teacher will have a prepared "Group Pose" and all parents can snap a shot to share and keep of their students classes. 

4. Each class will do a "run" of their dances in costume to ensure that there are no malfunctions or needs for alterations.  Any and all adjustments that need to be made (straps tightened or added, headpieces fixed, sock color changed etc) will be notated and EMAILED to parents so they can be taken care of in the 3 weeks between costume week and Dress Rehearsal day.

A simple thing like a new pair of pajamas is not so simple for a child in need — especially during the holiday season.  Now you can make a difference by donating the comfort of new pajamas to children in your community.

MUSIC IN MOTION is an official collection point for the Pajama Jams Organization November 13th - December 8th.

We are in need of new pajamas, sizes 5T- Adult Large.  We cannot accept used pajamas.

Pajama Jams is a  501(c)(3) charity providing new pajamas to children in need.  Since 2008, more than 7,500 Hampton Roads children have received help from Pajama Jams! We collect pajamas throughout the year and distribute them during the holiday season.

With the generous help of our sponsors, Pajama Jams holds a series of awareness and collection events as part of our PJ for the Holidays program.  In addition to hosting events to benefit our program, our sponsors placed pajama collection bins in their place of business, and the outpouring of help was nothing short of amazing!  In 2015, our pajama recipients included the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree Program, the Samaritan House For Kidsand students of BF Williams Elementary,  PB Young Elementary, Jaycox Elementary, and Tidewater Park Elementary Schools in Norfolk, VA.
