Open Letter To Our Dance Parents & Families
May 7, 2020
First, we hope you are all healthy and well. We want to thank all of our dancers for participating in our online classes these past few weeks. We realize this is a difficult time for all in many ways each and every day now, and we are all still uncertain of many things in life from health, finances, security, etc.
We take great pride in the ability of our business, our staff, and all of you to quickly adjust to online Dance Education classes beginning March 19th through current day. We also realize at times it can be challenging and even discouraging working on technique and routines alone in front of a computer screen. While there are still many unknowns, we remain fully committed to bringing you quality dance education and remaining connected to all of you, our students and dance family during this Covid Health Pandemic.
Our staff has continued to bring daily “live” classes, offered additional classes for our younger students at no additional cost, added classes taught by our alumni for our intermediate and advanced dancers, including live streaming and more. We continue to seek out additional methods and curriculum that will bring us all through this.
That said, for several parts of the country” re-opening” has begun. While the thought of getting back to class is wonderfully exciting for all of us, it will certainly bring with it challenges. The good news is that we have a wonderful, creative staff and dance family members full of problem solvers. We are currently working to create a studio environment focused on the safety, health, and well being for our dancers and their families.
While these changes are designed to meet the “new normal” of a Covid-19 environment, what hasn’t and will not change is our commitment to our dance family and community.
As mentioned in our newsletter earlier this week, we have “multiple” options for upcoming costume delivery, pictures, June performances, classes, camps, etc. and final decisions, while not made yet, will be forthcoming. Much will depend on “official” guidelines over the next couple of weeks.
WE look forward to seeing all of you back in the studio very soon. Until then, stay well, watch for updates, please feel free to call or email at any time . . . . visit our student wall of hearts at your convenience, and for now . . . we’ll see you online!
Sparkle and Shine!
Miss Kathleen, Miss Jennifer, Miss Alyssa, Miss Tiffany, Miss Kendra, Miss Tina, Miss Michelle, and Michael!
