Thank you so much for attending our Zoom parent meeting. If you were unable to attend, no worries! Here is what we discussed :)
Thank you: We are so proud of the kids' art, hard work, and ability to adapt and grow during this time. We are so thankful to you guys for navigating technology and this path forward with us. We couldn't do it without you!
May 30th: The Elite are doing a class for the Baby Bees. They are going to teach some Genie choreography inspired from Heidi Masse's skating show:)
June 1-26: We are continuing virtual classes during June. Guest master classes will be offered throughout the month as well so stay tuned!
We would love to keep you dancing for the June month. We know this time is a challenging one, so we are accepting payment in the form of suggested donation of $20.00 per class to the studio. Checks can be made out to Design Dance Studio; cash can be dropped in our mailbox; or you can PayPal us at Design Dance Studio. Thank you for your support.
Available classes weekly on Wednesdays (June 3, 10, 17, 24)
Codes will be posted on our DDC virtual webpage May 30 for the entire month.
July 6-31st: We hope to be open in person on July 6, utilizing only one studio, and if so, will also continue to livestream our in-studio classes for those who wish to extend their stay-at-home for any reason. We are committed to making the studio a safe place to dance and will deliver our plan for safety and sanitation in detail once we know when we are able to reopen.
The July schedule is arranged to minimize traffic in the studio and get everyone out before beach time:) We plan to do as many outside activities as possible as well.
Prices for July will be posted on the DDC Virtual page by the end of this week.
Mini Prep July: Tues/Thurs 11:30am-12:30pm
Mini/Jr July: Tues/Thurs 9:30-11:00am
Tn/Elite July: Mon/Wed/Fri 9:30am-12:30pm
August 3-14: We are hopeful that by this time we will be able to have both studios occupied. Tentative times and days for Summer Intensive are 9:30am-12:30pm Mon-Fri for Teen/Elite, 10:00am-12:00pm Mon-Thurs for Mini/Jr, 11:30-12:30 M/W/F for Mini Prep for those two weeks.
Prices and definitive times posted by July 1.
Art of Movement: Art of Movement has postponed its Chicago event rather than cancelling. However, we do not feel comfortable attending a large, out-of-state event at this time and are refunding Art of Movement fees to all DDC members.
Bloom: We are planning a possible Bloom show in August with videographers to capture the magic without a large audience. More details to come, and we will let you know when we do!
Choreography: We will continue with select pieces into the 2020/2021 season, as we feel all the hard work just didn't get seen. We look forward to keeping the old and adding the new next season.
Swag: We do have swag available for purchase, and it is a great way to support the studio! Our powder blue Whole Art, Whole Heart sweatshirts can be dropped right at your door for $40.00! Message us for details and order confirmation.
The physical and mental health of your child is our top priority. Moving through this summer, we are committed to providing a safe, creative, and consistent place for the kids to dance with their whole hearts, whether that be in person or through a screen.
