Hello Dancers, We are happy to welcome you to the 2020/2021 dance year. We are excited and optimistic for our schedule or classes and this upcoming year. Last year we were able to have our winter concert and performed at the Harlem Globetrotters game; however, we were unable to hold our regularly scheduled year end recital and all of our competition/performance spring and summer events were canceled. If anything else, we are excited to be back to weekly scheduled classes. Classes begin Tuesday, September 8th . As a reminder Children ages 6 and up are required to wear a mask in class and children ages 5 and under are not required but welcomed to. We’ve had our competition team in rehearsal during the summer with masks and they aren’t that bad. We all got used to it, and took it in stride. Class Sizes – Class Minimum 4 dancers ; class maximum 8 dancers (older/advanced classes may have 9) Dancewear and dance bag pick up . We will be offering curbside pick up of dancewear and dance bags with the props. As a reminder, ALL dancers in the Little Stars and Rising Stars classes will receive a bag with props. Dancers in older classes will receive a dance bag. – 9/2-9/4 available times after 3:30 PM. NO REGULAR CLOTHING OR SHOES in DANCE CLASS. If a child comes to class without proper dancewear they will not be allowed to dance. It is NOT too late to order in shoes, tights or leotard/dance dress Entrance/Exit for Classes- Please do not just walk into the dance studio. Dancers will wait at the front door, get temp checked and enter through the front door and exit through the side door. Parents can meet their child at the side door to pick them up. Tuition – Tuition will be posted to accounts on the 1stof each month and due by the 7th. A 10% late fee will be assessed after the 20th of the month. Those who have automatic withdrawals authorized will be taken out on the 7th. Health Assessment - If your child has a fever or is exhibiting flu like symptoms please keep them home. Monthly Newsletters and Updates – Monthly newsletters will come out to our families know about upcoming themes, performance information, and special events. We also have messaging on the BAND APP, our Website and Facebook. 2020 “Rescheduled” Dance Recital - Dancers from our 2019/2020 school year who wish to participate in a Fall Recital will have that opportunity this fall.
