We’ve become tech-enabled, making it possible for our students who want (or need) to continue learning from home to do so in a streamlined way.
We’ve been wearing masks, following our Safer Studio™ measures and doing our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
We’ve made changes to our curriculum across genres and levels, to ensure all our lessons and positive reinforcements are no-contact.
We’ve updated our facility to set up a traffic flow conducive to physical distancing, and we’ve closed certain parts of our space to avoid gatherings.
We’ve kept our employees working, and even hired new ones, including alumni! Their work has, perhaps, more meaning than ever nowadays.
We’ve adapted our way of thinking. We know, for example, that we’ll provide meaningful performance experiences this year, even if we don’t know exactly what they’ll look like yet.
In an industry that has been turned upside down in many ways because of the pandemic, I could not be MORE PROUD of the way we are paving a path forward for our staff, students, and families. While we wouldn’t have ASKED to make so many changes, we have CHOSEN to view the future through the lens of opportunity.
I am grateful for another dance season to lift up our community and bring joy into our students’ lives. It may look different, but perhaps that makes it even more special. <3
