A Dance Year Reimagined

Happy August! As most of you know, August at S&S School of Dance is usually a bustle of pre-registration phone calls, shoe ordering, and recital theme revealing. The excitement builds as a new dance year begins to unfold. 

This August, the studio has a new air of excitement. The excitement of reimagination and previously unexplored possibilities. Our goal is clear: to provide quality dance education in a safe and fun environment for as many dancers as possible. In our attempt to attain this goal, we are leaving no sequin unturned. Change is the only certainty. This dance year will be different from any our studio has seen in the past. But change has knocked on our door countless times over the past 47 years, and it has both honed and strengthened us.

So as you begin to think toward the upcoming dance year, we can assure you of the following:

1. We are committed to the safety of our community, both dance and at-large.

2. If we are able to open under the current state and local COVID requirements, we will do so in accordance with prescribed regulations.

3. We will disseminate information as soon as we can regarding fall registration. 

We are grateful for your patience and flexibility, and so very excited to see your dancer(s) at the studio soon!

Dancingly yours,

Stacy & Jade

LOVE 2020 Recital Weekend

Well….this weekend was supposed to be the dance recital. A chance for budding local performers to express varying interpretations of LOVE 2020. I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen more expressions of LOVE in the last 7 weeks than Jade and I could have staged in a thousand recitals. What a wonderful community we live in. 
We are sad this weekend, but we are also humbled and grateful to have 45 years of memories and a quiet weekend during which to reflect on them. On Monday, we’ll orient our heads and hearts to the future, but this weekend, we’re spending some time in gratitude for the support that we’ve experience from this community for decades. Thank you!

COVID-19 UPDATE

Dearest dancers and families, it is with heavy hearts that we have decided to temporarily close the studio. CDC guidelines discourage us from continuing classes, and we feel it is necessary to do our part to curb this pandemic. We realize that this will raise many questions regarding tuition, etc., but we ask for patience on your part as we have no policy in place for such an occurrence. Also, we see this situation change everyday and feel we must wait for the dust to settle before establishing such policy. We will miss seeing our dancers bop through the door, but we know this is best for all involved. Thank you for your understanding.
