COVID-19 CLOSING/UPDATES

Attention all Studio 45 dancers, families, and friends! 

Hey all,

*PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU READ THROUGH THIS IN IT’S ENTIRETY!!*

Miss Ryan here!!!!! I hope you guys are doing okay throughout this whole pandemic situation! First off, I want you to know how much we appreciate your kindness and understanding throughout this entire thing.  Also, we have been truly missing having all of your kids in our classes, and we are also missing seeing you guys in our lobby!! We haven’t been able to see any of our dance family in so long and it is truly heartbreaking that we will be another month before we are able to see everyone in person again.

As of Monday March 23rd, our governor mandated that all non-essential businesses remain closed.  So unfortunately our doors have to stay closed.  With this being said, our teachers will be offering classes through an app called Zoom! If you aren’t familiar with Zoom, you can download the app and create an account with an ACTIVE email address.  Then from there, you will need the class code and password to enter the class. (listed below) This can be accessed through a computer or a cellphone.  You must have a microphone and a camera so that your dancer can interact fully with our teachers .  If you have questions about this, please get in touch with Ryan (r_bartley45@yahoo.com OR (540)798-0751)

Now, these classes will be more condensed classes.  We will be combining some, so that our teachers do not have to travel to the studio as often or for as long.  We feel like it is best that we all avoid traveling as much as possible.  So, with this being said, below will be a list of all of the classes offered through our Zoom and under these, the classes that should attend these specific Zoom meetings.  For example, if your child is in either of Miss Ryan’s HipHop I or HipHop II classes on Mondays then your dancer should attend the 5-6pm Monday HipHop I/II class via Zoom.

If you are confused about any of the classes listed, PLEASE let Ryan know and she can explain everything to you!

*** We will NOT be having our recital on June 13th of this year.  Thankfully, we have rescheduled with the Berglund Center for an AUGUST 4TH rehearsal date, and a recital date of AUGUST 8THWe feel like we have more of a chance of having a more typical recital if we have our recital later in the year. We will be continuing our regularly scheduled classes through the summer, and then we will start our 2020-2021 season in mid-August.  The start date of our Fall session will be announced later. RECITAL FEE WILL BE DUE BY JULY 15TH.  $85 per dancer/$125 for 2 dancers. ***

Since we will be continuing classes through Zoom, tuition for the month of May will be the same as April.  We will charge a $50 flat fee for all recreational dancers.  This can be paid via PayPal OR you can send a check to the studio. (Studio 45- 116 Jefferson Ave Vinton VA 24179)  If you are deciding to pay through Paypal, Ryan will need to send you an invoice.  You will need to respond to this email with the current email you would like to receive your invoice to.  If you have any questions, please reach out to us.  Tuition will resume as normal for the months of June and July.  **Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if there is any financial issues.  We do understand that this is still a tough time for everyone, and we would like to be as accommodating as possible.** 

Thankfully our teachers were able to record themselves doing the recital dances and they are uploaded to YouTube.  Unfortunately, we have had some problems with the quality of the videos, and we are working diligently to get these fixed.  But for now, your dancers can still dance along to their recital dances with their teachers via our Youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCaG6lNcMY0rOTvVdhoneNjA/videos?view_as=subscriber

For now, our teachers will be working with your dancers on technique.  The month of April will be used to just keep the kiddos moving, and interacting with each other and with their teachers.  We feel that it is incredibly important for them to have interactions every week with their fellow dancers, and their teachers are really looking forward to seeing them weekly, even though the studio is closed! We will ask all of the dancers to make sure that they are practicing their recital dances through the weeks, but unfortunately, we will not be reviewing these dances with them.  As of right now, this is just not feasible with us having to do these classes virtually. 

I know that a lot of you are wondering about your costumes for your dancers.  We have fortunately received some of our costumes for our recital.  We will get these to  your dancers somehow during the month of May. (We have yet to determine how we will do so.)  We are waiting for other costumes to come in.  Unfortunately, some of the warehouses that we order from have been shut down completely for the last few months, so they have not been able to ship costumes.  We are hoping to hear from them over the course of the next few weeks to get updates on our costume orders. 

I have done my best to outline everything that you will need to know for the month of April in this notice, BUT if you guys have any questions about anything, please reach out to myself or Terri! Numbers and emails are listed below!
