January 2022 – Online Classes Update

Hello dance families,

As everyone is probably aware, Ontario announced new COVID-19 restrictions that take effect on January 5th. These latest restrictions mean that the studio will be closed for in-person classes until the end of January. Classes were set to begin the week of January 9th and while we can’t be together in-person we will continue with online classes using a modified schedule.

We know that online classes aren’t for everyone and that some households have a hard time connecting which is why we have modified the schedule to combine a few classes and provide more flexibility in the schedule for dancers and their families. 

NOTE: Dancers are welcome to attend any class at their level while we are online, ie: Dance Foundations level can attend any one or all three of the scheduled Dance Foundations classes OR a Primary Tap dancer can choose to also attend Primary Ballet and/or Primary Jazz. Any dancers in the Primary to Senior levels can also attend Dance Conditioning during this time.

We hope to see as many of you as possible online so that we can keep moving together and are ready to shift back to our in-person classes when we are permitted to re-open.

The modified schedule below will be in effect from January 10 to January 28. Zoom links will be available within your DWK portal account under the class details.

We hope to return to our regular in-person schedule in late January but will provide updates as soon as possible based on any changes or extensions to the provincial restrictions. If you’re eligible for an initial, second, or booster dose of vaccine please use this time to get vaccinated before we gather in-person again.

As always, please reach out to Ms. Erin with any questions or concerns. Text or email is the preferred method of communication.
