                                                                                                      2/27/21          

We have received a few questions regarding dance recital and a few other concerns. Please take a few minutes to review this and contact us with any questions.

Why did the studio cover the glass doors?  For the safety of our students, we covered our glass doors with a covering on Friday evening 2/26/2021. The reasoning behind this is our students have been very distracted by being able to see out the doors. Your Child’s safety is extremely important to us. We love and care for each child and do not want them to be hurt.  When kids see their parents, they tend to look for either their approval or look to see if they are still there watching them, which removes their focus from them observing the other students ahead of them to know what they need to do or even more they aren't concentrating when it's their turn.  It is very easy as parents to correct or try to help the coach with your child, but we ask that you allow the instructor to make the necessary corrections. If there is a concern, the instructor will speak with you, the parent personally.  With recital coming up we are trying to choreograph dances/routines and have the students memorize the them, so we need their full attention.  During class time, we will open the doors for the last 2-5 minutes of class for each student to show their parents what they have been working on. However, studio A now has an observation window! See photo below, now you was watch your child but they cannot see you. 

Can we stay and watch? Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 regulations for dance studios parents are asked to drop children off at class then come back when class is finished.

I haven’t received the studio emails: We are very sorry about that, that was never our intention. Please check your junk mail as sometimes emails can be found there.  If you are still not receiving an email, please email us at kassandrasdanceacademy@gmail.com Then in the subject box place updated email. In the messages please provide the child’s name and class.  If you need a credit card option for paying for dance costumes please email us as well and we would be happy to send you a payment link, In the subject box costume deposit. Then in the message please explain to us your name and your child’s name so we can send you the coordinating information. Please understand it can take 1-3 days for the payment link to be sent.

What’s happening with the dance and tumbling recital? Also, we are looking at recital date at Clyde high school June 18-20. - plan A is to have a two-night recital the 18th and 19th we will have a dress rehearsal on Thursday.  Practice at the location on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday each class would have a 15-30-minute practice. If COVID-19 guidelines become stricter: Plan B: to have four performances; alternate groups of performances to a specific day/time. Plan C - limit individuals within the theater, as of this time the maximum capacity is 15%. We are hoping that the percentage allowed in the theater increases. If it doesn’t, we will need to limit the number of family members and cycle students through.  Please be patient as a dance recital in a COVID world has many uncertainties and plans can change quickly. 

Do I need to fill out a new registration for my child? No if your child is registered in classes no need to re-register!

Can I switch my child to a new class? Unfortunately, no it’s past the time of the year where we can allow that. We can only offer to add classes.

We now offer office hours: Monday-Thursday 4:00-7:00, Friday 3:15-5:00 and Saturday 10:15-12:15. We would be happy to assist you! Did you know we offer dance shoe fitting? Stop in the office and we would be happy to help.
