Hello wonderful ADWV families,
We hope you are all hanging in there during this difficult time. ADWV will remain closed and are hoping to re-open when the Shelter In Place Order lifts on Friday, May 15th. Please note that, ALL ACCOUNTS HAVE BEEN PUT ON HOLD until we re-open the studio.
We know that schools have decided to continue distance learning throughout the remainder of the semester, but we are still hopeful that we will be able to finish out our season as planned. This includes Photo days, Dress Rehearsals, and, most importantly, our Annual Performance that we know ALL of us are so looking forward to. Of course, we will only go through with these plans if it is safe for everyone and we have state/government approval to do so. If anything changes, we will notify all of you through email.
In other news, our Online Virtual Class Program has gotten off to an incredible start. All of the details for classes, meeting IDs and passwords are in your weekly emails. If you aren’t receiving emails, please notify us at [email protected] as soon as possible!
We are also offering Online Private Lessons through live stream/video chat with one of our incredible faculty members! Our faculty can work on specific skills your dancer would like to improve on, clean solo/group choreography, or give a full technique private. Online privates are open to all of our registered students, can be booked for 30 minutes or a full hour, and will be available at a discounted private rate of $30 for 30 minutes and $60 for an hour. If you would like to book an online private lesson, please send us an email with PRIVATE LESSON – YOUR DANCER’S NAME as the subject and include in your message what your dancer would like to work on, the length of the private, your first and second choice of faculty member, and a few options of times for when you would like your private lesson.
Please bear with us as we navigate through this process and we will have more answers for you the moment we can. We truly hope you are all well. You are all in our thoughts constantly. We know that dancing together even virtually has been such a comfort for us and we are hoping that it is for you too.
We are in absolute awe of the way all of our dancers and families have adapted to a new way of learning and the progress we’ve seen in such a short amount of time. It has been an absolutely joy for us to experience. We miss you all and are anxiously awaiting the day when we can get back into the studio. In the meantime, stay safe, stay healthy and stay dancing! We are all getting through this together, keep up the incredible work.
Finally, we would also like to thank each and every one of our families who fall under the “essential workers” umbrella. To all of you on the front line, thank you for keeping us safe, our families safe. We appreciate it beyond measure.
