Employee Spotlight – Behind the Scenes at Work & Play

August 10, 2011

As an Operations Specialist at I do a lot Margot doll pic - aug newsletter2
of behind the scenes processes: issuing voids, reviewing end of the day, confirming ACH (Automated Clearing House) files, issuing refunds etc. Some of you may ask what the heck do ACH files, refunds and voids have to do with my personal life. Well, for the past 14 years, every Sunday from 6pm to 9pm I dance with a tap company called Tap Explosion

On a annual basis we put on a performance to show off our talent as tap dancers and honor the tap masters from the past.

Many of those that come to see us don’t know what goes on behind the scenes of a show. Besides managing the event and going to rehearsal every Sunday, many of us in the group, practice with each other during the week and on the weekends. We work to find costumes for the 16 members of our group, create flyers, choreograph numbers,
find the right music….the list is pretty long.MargotFlyer1

This year Tap Explosion has decided to do a fundraiser for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) research as an honor to a close friend of our dance teacher who lost her three month old daughter to SIDS. Throwing this event is one of the ways we have decied to show our support for the moms who have lost their children to SIDS and the team feels really charged about it.

On top of learning new dances for our big show, we are re-learning dances that Tap Explosion has performed in the past. Many of you only see the magic of my behind the scenes work at, but if you would like, we would love to have you come to the show and see the magic of all of the dancers! Plus all ticket proceeds (and donations) are going to ASIDSI (American Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Institute). Please help us find a cure.

Thank you for support, Margot.
