As you all have been made aware, I have decided to close the studio from March 16 - April 12 due to concerns regarding the Corona Virus. We understand that there are day-to-day changes happening and will continue to happen until the health officials can relate further updates regarding proper protocol responses. In the interim we will begin to try to make video tapes of recital dances in order for students to practice at home. Hopefully we will get them posted successfully online or emailed to you.
I would like to address a few concerns that all of you might have:
1. The studio plans to hold makeup classes upon return or post recital in June. Currently there are only 2 weeks of regular classes left. We do have a few weather related make up classes which will be taken into consideration as well. We will reassess these plans as warranted by the changing situation going forward.
2. Rehearsals and fees:
IF YOU HAVE NOT PAID REHEARSAL FEES DO NOT PAY THIS FEE YET IN CASE WE CANNOT HAVE A RECITAL THIS YEAR. Hopefully, that will not be the case, and if so you will receive an invoice later in the spring.
If YOU ALREADY PAID your rehearsal fees AND HAD A BALANCE DUE in another category (costumes, tuition, etc) your payment was changed to be applied to those balances. If we can have a recital you will receive an invoice for REHEARSAL FEES at a later date.
IF YOU ALREADY PAID and all other fees have also been paid, AND if we cannot have a recital this year, you will have a credit on your account for the Fall 2020. If you have a graduating senior you will get a refund.
3. Please keep an eye on your emails, Facebook and the website in reference to videos and for future studio updates.
Please note that we are keeping vigilant and that we are working for the benefit of your health and safety for the family! If you have any concerns or questions please feel free to contact the studio as we will be checking phone calls and emails regularly. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy by adhering to the CDC guidance updates.
Your BSD Faculty and Staff!
