                                                       MDS ANNUAL SPRING GALA 2018

The end of the Spring session is approaching, and with it, plans for the exciting Spring Recital, and also for a very special yearly Studio tradition we trust you will want to be part of this year are around the corner.

The Annual MDS Gala  is a special event held every year at the Ipswich Country Club.
It is a elegant night where we all get to dress up, share fun times together, play games which involve all kids - and sometimes the parents!-

In the past, the Gala was open to everyone at the studio, and we used a section of the time to award our dance competitive teams. (While the special awards for recreational classes were given at the spring recital)

THIS YEAR, we want the event to be shared by EVERYONE, so we decided to have ALL AWARDS, for ALL STUDENTS , be given at the Gala.

It is a great opportunity for MDS to say thank you to parents and dancers as well as teachers.
And the kids... they have a BLAST.

Here are some fun activities we have shared in previous years so you can get a mini-glimpse!

* VIP Red carpet entrance
* Walk of the Stars Street (like in Hollywood! With the names of each dancer
* Selfie Booth : with props, and fun items to take silly pics
* Games: from. Studio Trivia, to dance battles, dance parodies ,scavenger hunts, mom- daughter games and many more dance games ( this year we would love to do a Dad’s dance contest)!
*Every dancer gets a special personalized award.
* Surprises and gifts
*Great photo opportunities with all the girls dressed up in nice fancy outfits!

One of the best things about this event is to see kids of all ages interact with each other.
Games are designed to mix them all up no matter age of skill level, so they have fun and make new friends as well as celebrate with old ones..

It is an
MDS STUDIO FAMILY CELEBRATION, and we know you may be newer to us, or had not participated in the past, and we want to really encourage you and your dancer to attend, and not miss out.

A full course dinner with special dessert and a candy buffet, as well as awards and prizes are part of the party.

The cost per guest - adult or child- is $50 , which allows us to have the event catered and get all the personal touches and surprises for the night.

Most times, the dancer attends with Mom and Dad , sometimes siblings and friends come as well.

We do need an RSVP and Gala Ticket payment by May 20th, which you can send with Recital Fee as well.
Please tell us how many guests will be attending.

The MDS ANNUAL GALA will be on
Wednesday, June 13th from 5:00 - 8:00 PM
At the elegant Ipswich Country Club, located on 148 Country Club Way, Ipswich.

Please respond to this email to get penciled into our guest list.

Looking forward to seeing ALL of you there!!!! Please come celebrate with us your child's accomplishments of this year and his/her new and old  friendships!
