Halloween is right around the corner. Pumpkin spice lattes are on order. And apple orchards are ready for the picking. October is the perfect time to get our spooky and silliness out! That’s why October’s monthly intention is Spooky & Silly for 2019!

Our monthly intentions are a way to shine a spotlight on the life lessons that dance provides and deliver a little whimsy to our dancers. 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 SPOOKY & SILLY mean to FDC?

To us, Spooky & Silly is a way of incorporating a little bit of whimsy into the daily life of our dancers. It’s easy for us to get caught up in the daily stresses of life. We want to be able to show our dancers that its okay to stop and smell the roses and have a little silliness from time-to-time.

As busy parents, its easy to forget that we have the opportunity to create special memories for our children each day. Cherish these moments running from school, to dance, and back home for a load of laundry. Find the little moments of silly or love with your child. Before you know it, they will be out on their own. It’s the little moments that they will remember.

As for spooky – Halloween. Need we say more?

What’s the SPOOKY & SILLY Plan?

Over the course of the month we will host a series of activities for our dancers at the studio.

  • Our month kicks off with our STUDIO SPIRIT WEEK! Dancers are invited to show off their Footprints spirit by getting silly wearing all things blue and purple!
  • During our Observation Week, parents will have an opportunity to get up and shake out their sillies dancing with their kiddos!
  • Our Parents’ Night Out Halloween Bash Party will be providing all things SPOOKY! The Bash is in support of the Epilepsy Support Centre. We are so incredibly thankful for this amazing organization and the support they have given our dancers with epilepsy. Check out all the fun we had at last year’s bash!
  • The studio will be decorated to the rooftop with all things spooky and silly for our Halloween Dress Up Week!

I can’t wait to see what all of the Spooky & Silliness of our Footprints Family has over the course of the next month.

Dancingly Yours,

Miss Lainy
