Class Cancellations

Ashley and Lisa


October 27th, 2009

One of our senior dancers has been recently diagnosed with the H1N1 virus.  She is at the studio all of the time, is a member of the senior performing group, and is in close contact with both of us.

Due to the fact that we have been exposed to the virus – and are not feeling well ourselves, we have decided to cancel classes for today, Tuesday, October 27th. We do not want to spread the virus and we would also like the opportunity to completely disinfect the studio before you come back for classes.

The diagnosed student was quite sick and ended up in the ER so we are trying to be cautious and we hope you understand.

Studio Opening Delayed

Hi everybody!

Thanks to everyone who has come out to see our new studio and register for your fall classes. We were very excited to see everyone after the summer break and to meet all of our new students and parents. If you haven’t registered yet be sure to get in contact soon, there is still time!

We are very excited to begin our new dance season at our new location unfortunately, this start will have to be delayed. The inspections we need to gain occupancy into our building have not been completed yet. So unfortunately this means that we will have to begin our dance season two weeks late – the official opening will be Saturday, September 26th. This allows the contractor time to get the necessary inspections needed.

We are very disappointed in these recent developments, but we know it will be worth the wait! Thank you to everyone for being understanding and supportive during this exciting (but sometimes stressful) time!

Thank you for all your support and understanding! See you in two weeks!!

Ashley and Lisa
