Studio Closure Update
Hello ESP Families -
Let us start by saying how incredibly grateful we are for your continued support. We know we have said it before, but it means so much to see our dancers continue to log on each week and give their all in class. We know that the online format can be challenging and frustrating at times, and is not a perfect substitute for being in the studio. Which is why we are even more thankful for the persistance and perseverance being shown as we have had to continue on with the ZOOM classes. They may not see it, but we see so much growth happening in the dancers and it makes us even more excited to get back together in the studio to keep up the progress!
Along those lines, there is some good news and some (sort of) bad news...
First the (sort of) bad news... Although considerations are now being made to move our communities into Phase 1 and some restrictions are being lifted, we still do not feel it is safe to return to the studio at this time. Therefore we will continue offering classes in the online format via ZOOM. We are as anxious as the dancers to get back into the studio, but need to put the safety of our dancers and families first. So we must be patient a little while longer.
Additionally, the recital scheduled for June 20th has been postponed. However...
...now for the good news! The staff at the Weinberg Center have been wonderful and have assured us that the show will go on! We are continuing to work together to secure a date in the fall for Supercalifragalistic to take the stage! As soon as the date is confirmed we will communicate it so you can mark your calendars.
Because we are able to postpone and not have to cancel our recital, instead of ending the season in June like we normally would, we are going to extend the season through the summer so we can continue with all of the good work that has been happening! This way we can capitalize on the momentum that we have been building and offer dancers even more exciting opportunities! The *new* Extended Season will be July 6th through August 27th.
Registration for the Extended Season will be available in Studio Director and on the website. IMPORTANT: Dancers must re-register for classes even though this is an extension of the season in order for tuition to be billed correctly. Dancers should remain in the classes and level that they are currently in.
As timelines regarding health and safety guidelines remain uncertain, our goal is to be as prepared and flexible as possible to move forward safely. We will continue on with the online format for classes until we feel it is safe to return to the studio for in person classes. The situation is being closely monitored and we will continue to communicate updates via email and the Studio Remind Group. To join the Studio Remind Group text @espdan to 81010.
The week of June 29th - July 3rd will be POP UP WEEK! During this week dancers will be able to participate in free and pay-as-you-go opportunities such as master classes, bonus classes, parent-child classes, story time, movie nights, karaoke and more! Stay tuned for details!
Thank you once again for your continued patience and support. Our ESP families are THE BEST! And we hope to continue to provide you with the best dance experiences as possible. We are monitoring the situation very closely and feeling optimistic that with each passing day we are getting closer to the time when we can see all of those beautiful faces in person again!
"Laughter, song, and dance create emotional and spiritual connection; they remind us of the one thing that truly matters when we are searching for comfort, celebration, inspiration, or healing: We are not alone."~Brene' Brown
ESP THAT IS WE.
Thank you so much everyone for taking this journey with us! We will see you all soon!
