Spring Session started 1/23 and ends 6/7. No classes 5/3-9 or 5/29-31. If you are interested in our Spring Session, please give us a call. While the session is underway, we may have some class offerings available.
Registration for Summer opened 3/15. We are offering full day, week-long options . Please see flyer below to get more information.
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.
We are planning to have filmed productions for recitals. Recital pieces will be filmed on a stage, in full costume and makeup at a local theatre, and we will provide the recordings to the participating families. RECITAL FILIMING SCHEDULE WILL BE PROVIDED SOON. DRESS REHEARSALS AND FILMED SHOWS WILL TAKE PLACE JUNE 9-13. Deadline to register was 2/19/21.
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!!!: STARTING 4/12 MOST DANCERS WILL HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE IN STUDIO EACH WEEK. IF YOUR CLASS IS NOT ABLE TO BE IN PERSON EACH WEEK, WE WILL CONTACT YOU. ALL DANCERS ARE ALWAYS ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN CLASSES VIA ZOOM. IF MoCo RESTRICTIONS TIGHTEN AGAIN, WE WILL NEED TO INCREASE ZOOM PARTICIPATION.
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.
