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 through at least Thursday April 23rd.  So unfortunately our doors have to remain 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!

A lot of you are probably wondering how we will continue with recital.  If we are allowed to come back to the studio on Thursday April 23rd, we will still have 7 more weeks until our recital.  AS OF RIGHT NOW, OUR RECITAL WILL STILL BE ON SATURDAY JUNE 13TH, WITH DRESS REHEARSAL BEING THURSDAY JUNE 11TH.  This is enough time for our teachers to finish up your dancers’ recital dances and get them ready for the stage.  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. 

Now, for the touchy subject. Tuition.  Like we have said before, we are a small business and are doing everything in our power to stay afloat during this difficult time.  If we do not take in any tuition, we cannot pay our bills, and will not be able to open back up after this pandemic has cleared out.  With this being said, we are asking for all of our recreational dancers to pay $50 for the month of April.  Our studio has a PayPal account that you can pay your tuition through, and you can also mail or drop off checks or cash at the studio.  If you would like to pay via Paypal, please reach out to Ryan VIA EMAIL, and she can send you and invoice.  Our business Paypal account will be set up by the end of the week, and will be available for transactions on Monday April 6th.  The studio address is: 116 Jefferson Ave Vinton VA 24179 if you would like to mail your payments.  We completely understand that these are hard times for EVERYONE and would like to help out as much as possible.  If you aren’t sure that you will be able to pay your child’s tuition for the month of April, please reach out to Terri.  (aunttn45@aol.com OR (540)520-4112)

If your dancer has yet to receive their costumes for their recital dance, we are working towards getting those for everyone.  Unfortunately, some of our costume companies have been shut down due to “stay at home” orders in certain states.  We are keeping in close contact with them, and hoping to get our costumes as soon as possible.

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!
