This week Ballet Austin kicks off the staff Get Moving Challenge!
I have rounded up a few of my colleagues at Ballet Austin to begin a fun and friendly summer fitness competition to encourage and promote active life; more specifically…to challenge us to get moving right here at the BCS in the 60 plus dance and fitness classes we have to offer on site 7 days a week.
During the challenge, which runs June 18 through July 12, participating Ballet Austin staff will be challenged to commit to taking a minimum of 3 different BCS classes, and to set their own personal goals; and what they hope to accomplish through this challenge. Every one of us has a story that you can relate to. Working moms, busy executives, commuters, not motivated, to look good for a daughter’s wedding, too many excuses, and so on…
We will each blog about our participation and experiences in the classes. Keep reading the BE ACTIVE! blog over the next few weeks for some fun and funny stories about how the challenge is going; how our bodies are feeling.
But here’s the best part. You can participate in the challenge and win free classes! Receive a reward for staff sightings! That’s right! You could win single classes (up to 3), enrollment into a BCS Workshop, or up to 10 FREE BCS classes when you sight a Ballet Austin staff member in a BCS class…and report it to me!
Wanted! Photos of staff, dead or alive, tweeted or emailed to me, or posted on the BCS facebook page. Sight a staff member in a class? Take a picture with your phone and send it to me. Each legitimate staff sighting sent to me will reward you one free BCS drop-in class (limit of 3). At the end of the challenge, if you have sent a photo, you will be entered into a drawing to win 10 BCS classes or a BCS Workshop.
Sound like fun? Of course it does! But one more thing…who are you looking for?
The wanted staff are: Gail Romney, Director of Finance and Operations, Christi Cuellar, Development Director, Brooke Holmes, Senior Development Associate, Pei-San Brown, Community Education Director, Timothy Dillon, Marketing Director, LuAnn Glowacz, Communications Manager, Eleanor Bartosh, Digital Media Manager, Eric Caruthers, Schools Registrar, and me, Vicki Parsons.
See you in a class soon…I’ll be watching for the camera!
