Hello Dance Family,

It seems impossible that we are entering Week #5 of our new "normal" with "At Home" dance classes.  We are very hopeful that we are nearing the end of the state mandated stay-home order and that we will be able to begin making plans for a safe and gradual transition back to our physical classes sometime in May!

In the meantime, we have a few important updates:

Safety in Zoom
We have added security features to our Zoom classes to ensure the safety of all of our classes. One of those added features is the addition of a waiting room.  In order for the instructors to be able to effectively let students into their classes from the waiting room (and keep unwanted guests out), it is important that the name that you are using on your device for your Zoom log in is the name of your student or the parent name.  For safety purposes, instructors are unable to allow suspicious screen names into the classrooms.

Recital "Plans"
We have been continuing to get questions about our plans for the Recital.  As we have communicated previously, our originally scheduled Recital date of May 16th has to be postponed due to the fact that all state school facilities were mandated to be closed through May.  While we wish we were able to provide a definitive plan for the postponement, we simply don't have enough information at this time to have a clear understanding about what the state guidelines will be regarding group gatherings in the near future.  What we CAN tell you is that we are working through several different options for the Recital and once we get more information from the state in early May, we hope to move forward with selecting a final Recital plan. We are hopeful to be able to hold the Recital in the early part of the Summer, dependent on state guidelines.  

Recital Dances
We are continuing to learn and practice the recital dances weekly in the Live Zoom classes.  The recital content is taught and practiced during the last 10 - 15 minutes of each Live Zoom class.  If a student is unable to attend the Live class, the class recordings are posted to www.Mdmathome.com within 24 hours.  Students can use the "Class Videos" to take the class at their convenience and learn any missed recital choreography. Once the recital dance is complete, we will also post a final completed video to the "Recital Files" section of www.Mdmathome.com.  Most recital dances are getting close to completion!  

Website Fully Loaded!
Our website is fully restocked and loaded again with brand new content to help you keep your kids busy and entertained.  Whether it be a FREE Bonus class from experienced guest instructors, a fun coloring sheet, a dance movie recommendation, a fun video for a "brain break", a FREE bonus class with a guest instructor, a dance movie recommendation, a fun "brain break" video, or an educational dance activity, we have you covered!  Check it all out at www.Mdmathome.com/beyond-the-studio
