Hello Dance Families,

In light of the recommendations of BC Health as well as indefinite school closures set by the Minister of Education.
Our Studio Plan

classes will resume on Tuesday, April 14th, after Easter weekend.

April 1, will be the last payment taken for stage classes (tap, jazz, open ballet, lyrical, acro, mTh, hip hop)
May 1, will be the last payment for RAD Ballet Classes

As things are changing daily I will continue to keep an eye on developments. If it looks like we can get started back sooner - that would be great! If it looks like our goal of April 14 is not going to work I will update you with the next phase of the plan! If our plan changes the payment plan would change with it. This could mean payment credit or stoppage. It's one step at a time.
We miss our Dancers and their Families! Your support and patience is appreciated and helps us move through this temporary postponement as we look to the future! Over the next few weeks we will work to stay in touch through social media - we are all in this together!
