Two great events are coming up from Jo’s Footwork Studio: Pajama Club and their annual Winter Interlude performance!
Jo’s Footwork Studio is having a pajama party for kids this Friday, February 19. Join Miss Amanda and Miss Terri (along with special helpers from the Poms classes) for some pajama fun! They are having two times to accommodate different age groups so your kids can watch a movie, do a fun activity, eat pizza and ice cream treats and have a good time together.
3-6 year old Pajama Club (Lego Star Wars) will run from 4:00-6:00
7-13 year old Pajama Club (Star Wars Episode IV) will run from 6:30-8:45
The price is $15 per child and a portion will go towards Poms All Star Group. So have your kids wear their favorite pajamas, bring a pillow, blanket, stuffed animals, whatever and drop them off for some fun! Friends are very welcome and you do not have to be a current Jo’s student to participate.
Registration is due this Thursday, February 18. Click on the form below and print it out. You can mail it in, email it with a credit card payment, or bring it to the Jo’s Footwork Studio office on the second floor of the Western Springs Rec Center.
Footwork Dance Ensemble will present its fifth annual, one-night dance concert and silent auction, “Winter Interlude,” on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at 5:30 PM at Hinsdale South High School Auditorium, located at 7401 S. Clarendon Hills Road in Darien. Children and adults of all ages are welcome to come and enjoy this dance performance while supporting a good cause.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the non-profit Dance For Life Fund and The Children’s Place Association of Chicago. The Dance For Life Fund provides living assistance grants to HIV positive individuals working in the dance field in the Chicago area. The Children’s Place Association provides assistance to children afflicted with or affected by AIDS.
