June 16 update
RE-OPENING- We are choosing NOT to officially re-open on June 20th as group dance is considered high risk. We are however, allowing our teachers to hold virtual pop up classes and in person private lessons with the current state guidelines in place. A list of these guidelines will be posted on our website and at the studio this week. When we receive the new guidelines for a July 6th opening, we will edit if needed.
SUMMER CLASSES- We are preparing a 4 week session of classes starting July 13th - Aug. 7th. Classes will most likely run in the late afternoon hours to early evening. Dancers will have the option to participate in person or virtually. Different rates will apply. Stay tuned for our schedule and the list of state guidelines we will be enforcing.
YOUNG DANCER VIRTUAL "CAMP"- Dance Etc is known for our super fun young dancer themed morning camps. We are so sad to miss out on these this summer. We are working on a virtual option for our young dancers. Believe it or not, most of our littles did a great job with virtual learning and we just loved seeing their faces each week.
DANCE TEAM AUDITIONS- We will be holding auditions for our awarding winning and prestigious dance team program through video submission and application. Our website has been updated with current descriptions and audition information. We are holding a parent meeting for returning team parents Tuesday, June 16th at 7pm and a meeting for new team parents interested in obtaining more information on Wednesday, June 17th at 7pm. Links are provided in next blog post :)
FALL SCHEDULE- We will continue with optimism and create a schedule for all 4 studios in hopes that we will be able to begin a new season in some capacity in September. Fingers crossed!
RACIAL EQUALITY- Dance Etc will continue to support our students, families and staff members of color. We are committed to expanding our knowledge as educators and keeping our studio a safe place where through art we can explore and express our emotions. This is an open conversation and I will be available to talk about this to anyone at any time.
