The month of May is one of the most important month’s of the dance season at Footprints Dance Centre. During May it is essential to be PREPARED for the upcoming Recital in early June. Which is why, our monthly intention for May is PREPARED.
Our monthly intentions are a way to shine a spotlight on the life lessons that dance provides. From creating special bonds between dancers and families, to gratefulness and a growth mindset – it’s our aim to highlight these life lessons to our dancers and dance families. After all, dance is not just about learning how to move your feet, but how to let your heart lead!
What does PREPARED mean to FDC?
It’s no secret that the month of May can be a little crazy at the dance studio. During this month it’s time to get everything ready for our big show in June. Our dancers need to be well rehearsed and ready to perform. Costumes need to be tried on and finalized then steamed to perfection. Programs need to be designed, edited, approved and printed. Not to mention the other 20 things on our teams to do lists. Most importantly, the show needs to go off without a hitch! So naturally the month of May is the preparation time for all of that.
Getting PREPARED also means having all of our dance families on the same page with us regarding our Recital. So communication is our number one priority during this month too. Answering emails, catching the phone and making sure all of our recital information is in multiple spots is so important to making sure that our dance families feel prepared for our upcoming show.
What’s the PREPARED Plan?
Over the course of the month we will host a series of activities and events for all of our dancers inside and out of the studio.
- Our Teacup and Tulip assistants and teachers have been busy putting together Recital Practice Videos for these little dancers. Have your dancer perform with the video for Grandma and Grandpa to help get them accustomed to an audience.
- May 13-18 is our Final Costume Fitting Week! Dancers and parents will have the opportunity to make any last minute sizing issues resolved.

- Our teachers will be on a special lookout for extra prepared students. They might just have a little WOW Card to say Good Work!
