What type of classes will you be offering?
All classes will be taught in-studio with smaller class sizes or all virtual. At any time moving forward if we need to go online we are ready and have the tools so there will be no disruption in your child's training. For each class, teachers will instruct students participating in-person at the studio and students participating in a virtual classroom using Zoom.
This means there will be two options available for each class at registration and a virtual trial/drop-in option: No worries about a year commitment. There is only a three-month commitment between September to December 31, 2020. After December 31st there are no withdrawals for families that enrolled in the school classes and for those families that have committed to the year-end performance in May 2021.
You can register for:
All IN-STUDIO (Studio A&B cap at 9, Studio C caps at 6)
NOTE: We are starting our re opening new season in-studio. We will reevaluate later in the Fall to see if we need to move to a hybrid schedule later in the season when we see what the school systems are doing.
OR All Virtual ZOOM ONLY - All classes are also available as virtual only if that fits the needs of your family.
The trial/drop-in class option is a separate option from regular class enrollment. Trials are ONLY OFFERED VIRTUALLY. These are $30 per class and there is NO registration fee or 3 month commitment.
**In the event that we have to switch to a hybrid model later in the season, a rotating schedule option will also be available. However, you won’t be able to select the rotating schedule option at registration. This is something the studio will decide to institute based on the outcome of registration after the first few months. The rotating schedule (if implemented) would be split alphabetically (A-L in studio for 2 weeks, M-Z virtual for 2 weeks and vice versa).
Will you be limiting class sizes due to social distancing?
Both registration options (i.e., in-person and virtual) will have a maximum number of students who can register:
For the two largest studios (Studios A and B): A maximum of 9 students in-person and 9 students virtually, for a total of 18 students max
For the smallest studio (Studio C): A maximum of 6 students in person and 6 students virtually, for a total of 12 students max.
This is so we are in compliance with social distancing/capacity guidelines as well as with bandwidth limitations for virtual instruction. By limiting virtual attendees, we want to ensure our virtual attendees have a chance to interact with/receive feedback from their instructor just like they would during an in-person class. Limiting the number of attendees allows our instructors to provide more personalized instruction, which is critical for your dancer’s development.
What if classes fill up more quickly because of the additional size restrictions?
If the number of in-person registrations for a class fills up to capacity, we will consider adding a new class section or you can join us virtually.
What if my student would like to switch from in-person to virtual, or vice versa?
If your student would like to switch their type of instruction once the year gets started, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate these requests, recognizing that our capacity limits may impose some restraints. We will need to take each request on a case-by-case basis, but in general, anticipate this will not be a problem.
What are you doing regarding the end of the year show?
We will be having two shows this upcoming season. These shows are celebrations for all of our students: new and returning, all of our amazing and patient families, and all of our hardworking teachers and staff. There will be one show in October and our regular show at the end of the season in May. All costumes from our cancelled 2020 show WILL be used in these upcoming shows!
You can find these dates in our year-at-a-glance calendar linked below.
This is a celebration for both returning and new students. It will be outdoors, one class at a time so we can continue to practice social distancing. We will have an outdoor photoshoot and video-shoot with a professional photographer. All parents are welcome to bring their own camera for photos as well. There is NO FEE for this show. All returning students will wear their 2020 show costumes and new students will wear similar costumes.
This is our Spring Performance! Participating in the spring performance requires Saturday rehearsals as well as a show fee. Returning students will be wearing their 2020 costumes. This means that there is no costume fee for any student who does not need a new costume or does not need alterations. Any students that have outgrown their costumes or do not have the previous costumes will be handled on a case by case basis!
