2020/2021 Season Updates
July 23, 2020
1. Class sizes are smaller
We have measured each studio room and have determined how many students we can safely have in each class. With this in mind, class sizes are smaller and therefore, registration is limited. Unfortunately, because of the strict guidelines set forth by the government, there is no flexibility on the number we can have in each room. We encourage you to register early to avoid disappointment.
2. Physical distancing in and around the studio
Further to class size, you can expect the studio to look a little different in the fall. All floors and barres will be taped with dedicated spaces to help guide our dancers and make them aware of their limits so we remain safely apart. You will notice decals on the floor and walls to guide traffic in/out of the studios.
3. Breaks in between classes
You may also notice that there are 15 min breaks in the schedule in between classes. This is to allow for less traffic moving in and out of each studio as well as cleaning time in between each class so each group of students are entering a sanitized studio.
4. Classes are running 7 days a week
In order to accommodate the smaller class sizes, we have had to extend our schedule across 7 days rather than 6. For certain high demand classes, you will find more options in the schedule. If registration exceeds the class sizes allotted, we will continue to build in more options for you wherever possible. We appreciate your flexibility in this regard.
5. Boys promotion
In light of the impact that COVID 19 has had on our business, we will be making a few changes to our ‘boys dance free’ promotion. For the 20/21 Season, boys will get their first class in their first season of dancing with us at 50% off. We continue to be thrilled at the number of boys participating in our dance community. We are committed to making sure that boys dance too!
6. Reserving your spot in class
All company students have been placed in their classes for next season, including ballet and technique classes. You will notice when you check out that you will be paying the registration fee ($30) along with your September tuition upfront (rather than a deposit). This means that your next payment will not be due until October 1, 2020. Please make sure you complete your check out in order to ensure your spot in class is reserved. While you won’t encounter this often, if a class is full (such as a recreational class), please add your name to the waiting list. This will help me to determine where we need additional options. We are pleased to tell you that tuition prices and our company cap have not increased since last season.
