We have more information about Nutcracker below, as well as a link to the Nutcracker site. We are currently planning two productions (in Feb and April) to keep cast sizes down, but continue to offer this important production to our community.
We will offer nearly all Fall classes via Zoom for those who choose to participate remotely. We will also offer, to the extent we are permitted, in person options that may require alternating or rotating in person weeks in order to keep in person numbers lower. However, we anticipate that we will need to change our in person options throughout the Fall Semester, depending on prevailing COVID conditions in our area and local restrictions that may be in place from time to time.
We have re-tooled our studio and put in place extensive safety and cleaning procedures to enhance the safety of any in person offerings we are able to have. We have posted our current COVID procedures and policies below. These will be amended over time based on prevailing conditions and guidelines from CDC and other health authorities.
Please find more information about our Fall offerings below. Registration is open now and many classes will be capped at much lower levels than in past session, especially those with multiple offerings per week.
Please contact us ASAP if you have not picked up your recital costume(s). We will be donating any costumes not picked up by the first week of classes 9/10. Please send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know if you plan to collect your costume. We still have very limited in studio hours, so we will need to make arrangements for pick up via email.
Unfortunately, we will have to pause all on site retail sales. However, our 3rd party dance retail partner, Bethesda Dance Supply, is still able to provide local sales of dance shoes and apparel. Contact Jason@BethesdaDanceSupply with any questions.
We are offering two Nutcracker Productions this year to keep participants per production numbers low.
Dancers 5+ as of 9/1/20 will have the opportunity to participate in the Storybook Nutcracker. No auditions are required, but you must submit an audition form. Please visit the Nutcracker site for the form.
Dancers 9+ as of 9/1/20 may participate in the Traditional Nutcracker. Dancers 9-10 do not need to submit video auditions, but do need to submit an audition form.
Dancers ages 11+ are to submit a 2-3 minute ballet focused video. Dancers en pointe do not need to submit videos containing pointe work. Videos maybe of a Zoom class exercise, space appropriate variation or other ballet-based exercise. If dancers choose a barre exercise, we ask that they perform the exercise without the use of the barre.
All audition videos should be emailed to MelissaP@OvationsStudios.com
