VIRTUAL DANCE

MAY Newsletter - ALL

We understand that these are difficult times.   We are all doing our best.   At the dance studio we have continued to work so your children can keep participating and learning in a fun and safe environment.   Here is what you need to know for this month

 

  • Clarksburg Recital: We obviously have to cancel the recital at the clarksburg theatre this May, but would like to do a virtual performance for all of your families on May 24th from 5:30-7:00pm at no charge, so that you can see what they have been learning and progressing through this hard time.   It will also be fun!!

 

  • Comp families….I am still waiting to hear what the competitions are doing.  I am working on getting refunds but have gotten no positive response on that end.   We are also working on other options, including our own competition.   As the COVID 19 situation changes we are adapting and being creative for everyone in the studio.

 

  • Future–  Stuart and I have secured a location that we and other studios can perform in costume with adjudicators, but it will be a fun event.  We will also have all comp dances in the Christmas recital this year.

 

  • Fees–  If you have been coming to the virtual classes then you owe all class fees.  The kids who have been attending have been improving a lot!

 

  • New Location–  The location we have in Collingwood is lovely but the dance studio is not large enough, so we will be moving Collingwood into a larger location in August, and will keep you posted on that.  The Thornbury studio is secured and good to go.

 

  • May Long Weekend- Tomorrow is a holiday so there are no regular classes however, if someone wanted to spend some time on their small group, I am happy to accommodate, but for only one hour so check in a soon as possible .

2020 Competitions

We are watching daily, as you are, as the COVID 19 situation unfolds.   Of course the health and safety of our entire dance family is the most important factor for us.  

Competitions are trying to reschedule themselves, and we are investigating a local competition as well.   We just have to wait on the direction of local health officials be make any further decisions.
