COMMUNITY CONNECTION UPDATE:
In February the studio hosted a food drive for the Murray Children’s Pantry. Following the delivery of or donations we were invited to come in and lend a hand sorting weekend packs for children and families. If you ever want to make a donation or volunteer some hours they are always looking for a lending hand. Check them out on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/murraychildrenspantry
This past month we were also able to support the Murray Drill Team by having our Company Dancers perform as fillers at their year-end showcase. We loved cheering them on, especially some of our own Studio 56 alumni.
