Studio Dans Update
Thank you for your support as Studio Dans remains committed to the growth, safety, and well-being of each individual dancer. This season will be unlike previous years, however, the commitment to providing a quality dance education remains the focus.
Based on the survey results, three different platforms of dance education will be offered - "In-Studio', "Hybrid" and "Virtual Only". For "In-Studio" and "Hybrid" Classes, Maryland Covid-19 Mandates will be followed. (See below for more specific information.) For virtual classes, the Studio Dans staff have worked hard to ensure the highest quality classes will be offered through Zoom. Upgraded wifi and sound will enhance this stay-at-home option.
Recital decisions will be forthcoming as we navigate through the year.
As always, class placement is an integral component to achieving the maximum result for each dancer. It is a 'win-win' for everyone when students are grouped by similar skills, dance goals, and commitment levels. Every Pre-Teen, Teen, and Senior student/class will receive an email with placement for next year this week. These decisions are the product of the staff's assessments of the students. All other students will register based on age group.
