All your children are good listeners and would have achieved this award by the end of the year. We will have your certificate and a treat ready with your costume pickup.
For those who still seek to earn this incentive, see Plank Posse and Splits Club requirements. You can earn it any time before May 20. Email us a video of you completing the requirements firstname.lastname@example.org. Then send us a text so we can look out for it (406)7815653.

The girls have worked very hard and collectively have each earned, through their focus and dedication, an optional solo which can be found under "files" on their account. If you want to purchase a solo costume, they are about $30. You can also pick your own appropriate solo outfit/costume. Dance Design Studio defines appropriate as midriff covered (like one piece swimsuit or more).
