THE BRIGHTER DAYS AHEAD PROJECT
Murphy School of Dance Community Involvement
Murphy School of Dance is very excited and humbled to announce our upcoming community service shirt project
“The Brighter Days Ahead Project”.
This is a collaborative project will be exclusively through Murphy School of Dance and BlueBird Designs (a local personalized shirt business). We have worked thoughtfully and creatively with BlueBird Designs to create a local “mountain scene” unisex shirt available in child and adult sizes. These shirts are made from the brand “Comfort Colors” – extremely soft and best known for their high quality. Shirts will cost $25.00 each and can be shipped by mail, or delivered (if you live in city limits). We may also entertain the idea of a safe curb- side “pick-up” service where no one gets out of their cars but just meets at MSOD and we will bring the shirts out to you! IF so, this service would be held on ONE date once shirts are ready to limit non-essential travel (date tbd). A portion of ALL proceeds will assist local food banks at United Methodist Church in Murphy. We have been in contact with Wil Posey, Director/Pastor for monetary donation logistics as we will begin donating once orders come in.
Both Murphy School of Dance and BlueBird Designs will EACH be making donations PER SHIRT SOLD! That’s right, every single shirt gets two business donations! We are so proud to be able to do this to give back to the community in the hopes of shedding some light in these trying times by always remembering, Brighter Days are indeed Ahead.
Please help us spread the love by sharing and posting a picture in your cozy Murphy Mountains tee! Message us to order yours! See digitized picture below! Our first sample will be in Wednesday but this just gives you a little sneak peek! Each shirt reads: "Brighter Days Ahead, We're All In This Together, Social Distancing 2020" // with "MSOD x BlueBird" on the sleeve!

THE MSOD MISSION
Teaching children and young adults MORE than just the art of dance!
Established in 1988, MSOD offers students the opportunity to commit to either a Recreational or Conservatory dance program within one quality studio environment. With former students now performing in Las Vegas, New York, and Los Angeles, MSOD has proven its ability to train and guide students to success at all levels of commitment. Over our 30 years, we have strived to create an artistic learning environment where everyone truly feels wanted and appreciated! Welcoming students of ALL backgrounds, our instructors aim to teach their students more than just dance, often focusing in lessons of kindness, compassion, giving, accountability and sharing while relating all topics and desired morals back to the arts; our passion!
A sincere "dance family", MSOD provides the highest quality of dance education within a loving and nurturing environment. Students are encouraged to be accountable, responsible, and self reliant; qualities we know will assist them in all of their future endeavors entering adulthood. Whether you’re looking to learn new dance moves or hone in on your existing talent, we strive to meet the goals and potential of each and every student. Our instructors are committed to giving each student attention while also moving the class forward to get the most out of our program's experience. We are more than happy to answer any questions you have about our program
