Art in Motion's Christmas Showcase
Friday-Sunday, December 10th-12th, 2021
AIM's Annual Christmas Showcase will be held at Art in Motion. Every year we transform our largest dance room into a theater. This intimate & special performance space will include a stage for the dancers, raised seating for our audience, professional lighting & sound, and more! We have split up our dancers into different performance groups to ensure that we have enough space for the performers backstage as well as enough seating for family & friends in the audience. Over the weekend of Dec. 10th-12th there will be 14 different Christmas Showcase performances! Mommy & Me, Tiny Tot, Jitterbug, & Adult dancers will all have an opportunity to perform once, while our Shuffles, Centerstage, Varsity, Bravo, & Principal dancers will perform twice.
Please scroll through the Performance Handouts (shown in the gallery on this page) to find your dancer's showtime slot.
To keep things organized we have a ticket allotment system for each dancer. AIM families have three options regarding purchasing tickets for the Christmas Showcase:
1) Purchase less than your ticket allotment (See ticket amounts on handouts)
2) Purchase the exact number of tickets you are alloted
3) Purchase your ticket allotment, but request to purchase additional tickets. Most likely we will be able to fufill that request because not everyone needs their entire ticket allotment for each show.
From Nov. 1st-15th you will have a chance to purchase your Showcase tickets. After that, any tickets that have not been sold will then go towards other dancers' additional ticket requests. Be sure to attend Parent's Day at AIM on Sun. Nov. 7th from 10am-1pm to purchase your tickets! Otherwise, you can just stop by AIM during your dancer's class and purchase them from either Miss Christine, Miss Catie, Miss Kayla, or Miss Cathleine. If you have any questions at all regarding any of this information please reach out to Miss Catie via text at (586)876-3822.
Thank you & God bless! -Miss Catie
