Important Safety Protocols & Studio Updates for Upcoming Dance Season

Hello Everyone!

I have been contacted by a handful of parents who are all wondering the same exact thing – how is this season going to look for the studio.

I understand that with all of the unknown it makes everyone a little hesitant and uneasy to make any long-term decisions for this year. However, I want you all to rest assured that the health and safety of our dancers and staff are our top priority. We will be implementing important CDC guidelines here at the studio – all while trying to make this year as ‘normal’ for the dancers as possible. The first update I wanted to inform everyone on is that we will be moving forward with ALL in-person classes this season. I wanted to update everyone on the steps we will be taking at the studio in order to make it a safe space for all of the dancers. I also wanted to give you a glimpse into what this season is going to look like so that you can rest easy knowing we are doing all we can. I hope the outline I have attached below gives everyone the peace of mind you need in order to help make this difficult decision. I also hope it helps you understand that we are doing our very best here at the studio in order to make this another amazing and unforgettable season for each and every one of the dancers. I love you all and I cannot wait to see everyone in a little less than ONE WEEK!

Much love,
Miss Naomi

2020-2021 Season Update

Hello Everyone! Here’s a little update regarding our upcoming season…

I promise I have not forgotten about our upcoming season! Due to the current circumstances, I do not plan to open up our 2020-2021 dance season until our current (2019-2020) season has completed in order to avoid any confusion. I am hoping to have registration up and available by the end of July! I will keep you all posted as I find out more! Watch for updates via our studio Facebook page and our website!

Thank you all for the incredible love and support you have shown the studio throughout all of this! You guys are AMAZING! 💕

2020 Program Cover Art Contest

It’s that time of year again…TIME FOR OUR ANNUAL STUDIO ART CONTEST…and I could not think of a better and more perfect time to put those creative minds of yours to work!

The recital program cover (and back cover) is an annual art contest held by our studio where each dancer has the opportunity to submit a drawing to be in the running for being printed on the front or back cover of our program for the 2020 Spring Recital. This program is handed out at the recital to all who are present and lists the order of classes performing as well as each dancer participating in each class. The contest is open to dancers of all ages and will be split into two different age groups: Preschool – 3rd grade and 4th – 12th grade. All entries will be voted on by your fellow dancers during regular class. Each dancer will get the opportunity to vote for their favorite drawing in each age group. From there, the entry with the top votes in each age group will be placed in the running for either the front or back cover of our recital program. Between the two, the drawing with the most votes will be printed on the front cover and the runner-up will be printed on the back cover. All art submissions are due back to me NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, APRIL 23RD.

If your dancer plans to submit a drawing, there are a few guidelines that need to be followed:

  1. All entries must be submitted on a standard piece of PLAIN WHITE paper (DO NOT USE NOTEBOOK PAPER)
  2. All entries must be drawn in PENCIL or BLACK pen (NO COLOR SHOULD BE USED)
  3. All entries must be dance related
  4. Only one submission per dancer
  5. No tracing – free-hand drawings only
  6. Before submitting your drawing, your dancer needs to include their full name and grade on the BACK of the drawing

The drawings that do not get selected for the program will still be displayed at our 2020 Spring Recital in the entry for all to see. Now go and put those creative minds to work dancers! I cannot wait to see what you come up with!

**ALL CLASSES CANCELLED MARCH 16TH – 27TH**

Hello Everyone!
First off, I wanted to thank all of you for your input regarding classes. I really appreciate all of the feedback! Based off of the results, a majority of you feel that it is best to cancel all classes for the upcoming week in order to take all the precautionary steps. I agree and feel that this is the smartest and safest option for everyone. **There will be no regular classes held from March 16th – March 27th.** I also found out today from the Lion’s club that the Lion’s Talent Show, which was scheduled for April 2nd, has been postponed. Further details to follow. I hope you all understand that this decision was very hard for me to make, but I want to do what I feel is best for the dancers and studio as a whole. Thank you all for your cooperation, patience and understanding regarding this matter. You are all wonderful! I am looking into ways to get updated choreography videos to everyone sometime this week so that dancers have the availability to practice at home. Please watch your emails. Any questions, feel free to contact me.
Much love, Miss Naomi
