Hi DWK families,
Here’s a few pieces of news and some updates as we continue to work our way through the evolving COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you to everyone that has already posted videos on FlipGrid or taken a Zoom class. It feels good to connect with each other, even if we can’t do it in person. Dancers can continue to explore all of the topics within each FlipGrid class and submit video responses so we can see what you’ve been working on and provide individual feedback. We will also be scheduling more live Zoom classes and are currently working on a regular schedule for those. Stay tuned.
While we doubt we will be able to have the regular Year-End Recital this year we are still hoping to put together some sort of Year-End Performance video. Whether we can get individual classes together to perform or whether we compile individual videos will depend on how the situation evolves through April, May and even June. Please know that we are evaluating options and will continue to keep you informed about format and timing.
Statements will be sent out to all families with a current balance. We recognize the financial uncertainty that many are feeling and are instituting a “Pay What You Can” option for all balances. As a small business that is also struggling with uncertainty we are very appreciative of anyone that can continue to pay the full tuition at this time. There will be no interest or late fee charges for anyone that cannot currently pay. We also will not be charging any additional tuition fees if the dance session is extended through May or June.
You can make a payment through the DWK portal, by sending an e-transfer to firstname.lastname@example.org or by responding to the email statement confirming with Erin the amount you would like charged to your card on file.
Ms. Erin is posting a weekly warm-up on the DanceWorks Kenora Facebook and Instagram pages. We hope dancers (and families too) will do these warm-ups to stay active while they stay at home. Here’s the Weekly Warm-up #3 cards and the video of Ms. Erin doing the full warm-up.
DWK families, we’ve started a studio challenge! Receive points for each item completed from today through April 10. Every 10 points gets you one entry in a draw to win DanceWorks Kenora clothing! Keep track of your points and submit your tally by midnight on Friday, April 10. (Ms. Erin will also be keeping track of FlipGrid and public posts but make sure you send your tally in as well.) PS. Already said hello or participated in your FlipGrid classes, those will count towards your tally for this challenge too.
