WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW

RECITAL EXPERIENCE I – 11am

 

We chose this year’s theme to celebrate what is important to us as human beings: LOVE, FAMILY, FRIENDS and my favorite, HOPE. Without Hope we would never live.

After our Showcase in August of 2020 that closed out our 19th season, we were cautiously optimistic about our 20th season. It is very hard to run a business during a pandemic and I hope it’s nothing I ever have to navigate again. We made sure all of our dancers were aware of our social distancing guidelines and mask-wearing policy. We welcomed dancers virtually when they were quarantined. We closed our Lobby to all but the parents of our youngest dancers. We used Individual Prop bags for our younger dancers and stopped travelling across the floor in class. We taped socially distant marks on our Ballet Barres so that everyone would have 6 feet of distance. We spaced out our classes with breaks in between and staggered our start times. Oh, and we CLEANED. And we CLEANED. And we CLEANED. While it was tough, we have finally made it to the stage!

To say I am proud of all of our dancers is an understatement. These dancers have weathered through scary storms at an early age. They have shown adaptability, resilience, joy and hope.

They adapted to our new rules so they could dance in the studio again.

They showed resilience by wearing a mask, dancing in a 6X6 foot box and bouncing from virtual to in person classes seamlessly.

They showed joy in their enthusiasm and dancing during classes.

They showed hope by knowing that if they kept working hard enough this day would come!

While this year’s Recital is not typical, it is closer to what we have offered in the past. This year we are dancing in a dinner theater environment. Embrace the changes.

Enjoy your Recital Experience!!
