These pictures show the big room and small room getting the dance flooring - Dura Dance rolled out and then the final product. Then, there's Miss Lauren, enjoying the new cushioned floor! Last up, photos of the multi-purpose room.
Two and a half tons to be exact! Big shout out to the great guys at Lumber Liquidators in Hillsborough. Our flooring doesn't just look great: the dance floor is cushioned for safety and all the other flooring is made from recycled materials to help us go green!
Renovating our new space is taking a lot of work! We've removed old furniture, appliances and carpeting, cleaned and painted, and laid new floor throughout the entire building. There's a lot of sweat equity in this new place.
Our new school is part of Historic Middlebush Village. Railroad Avenue was the site of the the Middlebush stop of the Millstone and New Brunswick Railroad which operated from 1854- 1930. The tracks at South Middlebush Road were removed in 1948.
Fun fact, back in the late 60s and early 70s, our building was the Franklin Township Municipal building until the new building on DeMott opened.
We're very excited to share our progress toward our new school! First off, let's start with Location, Location, Location.
After five years on Amwell Road, we knew it was important to stay close by and continue to build on the relationships we've been forming with our community. We were delighted to find our new location within the Historic Middlebush Village, just 0.7 miles away!
Want to avoid South Middlebush Road? Just take Amwell to Olcott Street, Olcott becomes Railroad Avenue.
We are thrilled to open registration for our 2014-2015 season at Modern Motion Dance School. We are committed to offering great dance classes at great prices with qualified teachers.
As part of our commitment to our dance families, our entire staff will be attending professional developement courses in August to include the latest techniques, choreography, trends in the dance industry, injury prevention, customer care, teaching and child development.
In addition to professional development, we continue to invest in great teaching tools and materials. This past year, we invested in a strong techinical ballet syllabus with great results, and over the summer, we'll be strengthening our jazz syllabus.
New for 2014-2015, we'll be offering hip hop starting at age 6. Primary Hip Hop will be offered on Saturday afternoons and Hip Hop for dancers in level 1 & 2 will be offered on Friday evenings.
We look forward to dancing with you into the new season!
Winter brings storms, ice, and hazardous road conditions so there may be times when we delay or cancel classes. Students can drop-in during another weekly class as a make-up, and in some cases, we will schedule an alternate date for make-up classes.
In addition to using a service to call all numbers entered at the time of registration, we post notices to our website, Facebook, and send emails to those affected. To be sure that you receive information about delays or cancellations, please be sure to update us with your most current contact information.
You can also opt to receive text message notifications by texting mmdance to 292929.
Please be advised all dance classes for Saturday, January 4th are cancelled. After careful consideration and assessing conditions of icy and untreated surfaces which will persist through the cold temperatures, we have opted for the safety of the dancers, staff, and their families. Rest assured, we will be scheduling make-up classes for all Saturday dancers.
We're having a blast this summer!
We're heading into year five!
We are enrolling for the 2013-2014 Season, our 5th season of dance! We're so excited for all that year five has in store. Our very own production "A Very Modern Nutcracker" will be underway shortly. Dancers ages 7 and older can join us for our Disney Trip where we'll be dancing in the Main Street parade and performing our own choreography too. And, can you believe we're already gearing up for our 5th Annual Dance Show planned for June 2014?
And remember. . .
