Spring Session starts 1/23 and ends 6/7. No classes 3/29 - 4/4, 5/3-9 or 5/29-31. If you are interested in our Spring Session, please register as soon as possible. Many of our offerings are at capacity. We have had to cap our offerings at lower total levels in order to comply with County regulations, so there are considerably fewer spots open across levels and genres.
We are trying to offer as many in person options as possible, while complying with County limitations on numbers per square feet. Some classes will be able to meet in person each week, while others will have to rotate in person every other week. At any time this may change if County or other restrictions require. We may need to convert all classes to Zoom only from time to time or for extended times. Please review our COVID video that relates our protocols.
Help us create a summer schedule that meets the needs of our community. We have created a short survey and are asking for input. Here is the link to the survey: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1PW6npwtYzrGp78zcLXobvx7oGNy9mCZ0sfgorTbhiGo/edit
We are planning (and hoping) for the opportunity to hold our annual June recitals again this year. Deadline to register was 2/19/21. We have reserved the theatre June 8-13 for these shows and rehearsals. However, we might need to shift this to an outdoor venue and/or a filmed production (with no audience) if COVID restrictions warrant. Please sign up now for recital. Most classes for dancers who were age 5 on or before 9/1/20 will have the optional opportunity to participate. Here is the link for the recital costume measurements form. Please complete this before 2/19/21. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1s4Sx-zOSlhOZDRJ-EFxNEosRu1-idrXk22X7JWrKqDo/edit
All enrolled dancers are welcome to participate via zoom at any time. Access the Zoom classes through the Parent Portal only. We ask all in our community to utilize this option if there is even an outside chance that a dancer or someone dancer has been in close contact with may have been exposed to COVID. It is imperative that we all work together to keep everyone safe and maximize the chances of preserving our in studio options.
UPDATE!!!: ALL INFORMATION ON ROTATIONS BETWEEN A AND B WEEKS IS NOW IN THE PARENT PORTAL. YOU CAN ACCESS WHICH DATES ARE IN STUDIO VS. OVER ZOOM FOR YOUR DANCER BY SELECTING THE CLASS AND CLICKING ON "RESOURCES". YOU WILL FIND THE FILE ABOUT ROTATIONS THERE -- AND STAY TUNED -- MUCH MORE INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE THERE AS WELL.
Many classes will rotate A and B weeks of possible in person vs. zoom options. If you arrive in studio on a week when you should be on Zoom, you may not enter the studio and must sign up for a zoom make up. We must keep in person numbers to very limited levels. We have only posted rotations for the spring session through 3/19. We will update these to run through more of the Spring session if necessary.
A-Week Classes (through 3/19 only for now):
B-Weeks Classes (through 3/19 only for now):
We have more information about Nutcracker below, as well as a link to the Nutcracker site. We have decided to have one production this year in April. Please see below for more details.
We will offer nearly all Spring 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 year, 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 offerings below. Registration will continue to be capped a much lower levels than in the past in order to keep in person numbers lower. Register early to secure a spot. Many classes require placement. Please contact us at Contact@OvationsStudios.com to set up a placement.
