COVID Plan

Dear Parents:
We are excited to announce our reopening for classes for the school year beginning Tuesday, September 8. We have been hard at work cleaning, planning and organizing so we can have a safe start and continue to offer in person dance instruction. While we understand the concerns many families have in regards to the pandemic, we feel it is essential that dance be taught in person and that children have opportunities to regain whatever sense of normalcy is possible under the circumstances which is why we are aspiring to keep our classes be in person. Of course, that may change but for now we will plan on a live reopening.
Below, please read the attached COVID-19 reopening document. It is important to understand that our policies and procedures have had to change drastically in order to respond to the pandemic. You must sign a copy of this document online through your Danceworks account in order to complete the registration process. You will be prompted to do so at the next login to your Danceworks account.
Additionally there have been numerous changes to the schedule to accommodate cleaning between classes, staggered drop-off and pick- up times and staffing changes. There will be more adjustments made as necessary, so we deeply appreciate your patience and flexibility.
Because of new guidelines for capacity, we are reducing the size of our classes so they may fill more quickly than usual. We may be able to add sections of some classes if needed. We are also hoping to provide a hybrid live-online dance experience for some classes if enrollment warrants but for now all classes are in person unless noted ZOOM on the schedule.
Tuition, payment schedule, registration fees remain the same as last year. We will process the  registration fee of $25 and September tuition on Saturday , September 6. All tuition payments this year will be MONTHLY and will be processed on the first Saturday of the month. Remember that there are 9 payments in the year regardless of how many classes are offered each month and that there will be 32 classes in the year. We will make a decision in the fall regarding how to handle the recital this year and whether or not to purchase costumes.
Please register for the age and level appropriate for your dancer. All leveled classes in Intermediate ballet , modern, tap, lyrical and Jazz : please register for the SAME LEVEL taken last spring.  Any adjustments in level will be made after classes start if needed. Please email SuzyTWDC@gmail.com for questions about leveling and registration.
