Studio Update 4/23

Categories: News

Hi parents,

Gov. Bullock has issued a phased reopening of Montana! We unfortunately cannot open during phase 1. When phase 2 has been initiated, we will be reopening right away!

We would like to continue all dance classes as they were before we had to close. We would like to continue that schedule for at least a month to get ready for recital!! We may have to go longer depending on dates I can get for recital, also keeping in mind that we cannot do our recital until phase 3! Picture day will also be scheduled after we reopen, based on when all our costumes finally come in (some were delayed because of the shutdown). Summer dance classes will be put on hold until we can officially finish our fall season! We do not want all our dancer’s hard work to go to waste, or for the parent’s efforts in this season to go to waste either, so we will be having our recital to finish off our season! Thank you all for your understanding in this difficult time!

Tumbling and Gymnastic classes will change to summer schedule on June 8th. If we open before that date, our fall schedule will continue as normal! You can find our summer schedule on our website (live2dancestudio.com). We ask that you do register for the summer classes so that we have an idea of how many kids will be stopping for the summer or continuing to take classes through the summer! There will be no registration fee for continuing students.

We can’t wait to see all of our students again!! We are impatiently awaiting the day we see phase 2 can begin!

Thanks to all our amazing students and their parents for working with us and understanding during this time! We love teaching your children!

Hoping everyone is healthy,

Miss Nicole and Miss Jessica

Things To Do At Home!!

Categories: News

If you’re bored at home and would like to practice, we’ve made some videos to help you remember what we do in class, that you can do at home! Those videos have emailed out to everyone! We made them short and sweet just to give you an idea, so when you practice, feel free to do the moves more than once! If you would like anything broken down more, or if there’s anything you’d like to see that we didn’t put in the video, just let us know and we will get it for you! Don’t forget to stretch well before you practice!           Our weekly Gym board workouts are also being posted on Facebook every Monday for another activity you can do at home while we wait to return to classes!         Have fun and stay healthy! Your teachers miss you all!!!

Still Closed :(

Categories: News

We are unable to start classes back up yet, so we are still closed ☹

Tuition: I went ahead and stopped all April payments from going through for now since we don’t know when we will be able to have class again. Past due payment reminders are automatically sent, so if you have a payment past due, you may still get an invoice for it. 

Recital fee was due April 1st. I stopped auto payments from going through, however the invoices are still being sent out. If you would like to pay it now, you sure can. The new due date, however, will be May 1st.

Recital: We are still having recital, but we are going to postpone it. I have two back up dates I’m looking at but I’m still working with everyone involved to set the dates before I give you an exact date. #1: If we are able to start classes again sooner than later, we will have a recital in the beginning of June.  #2: If this lasts longer than anyone wants it to, we will plan on having a recital at the end of August with classes in August as well to prepare for recital! I want to make sure all dancers still get to perform, so I sincerely hope the new recital dates will work out. This was an unfortunate circumstance that we are having to try to make the best of. I thank you all for your support and understanding.

Picture Day: Picture day will also have to be moved. Lisa (our photographer) would like to wait to set the new picture day to avoid having to move it more than once. As soon as we can start classes again, we will set a new picture day!

Please let me know if you have any questions. I hope to see you all sooner than later!

Miss Jessica and I miss all our kids sooooooo much!!!! We can’t wait to have classes again! We hope you are all healthy!       We love teaching your children!

Closed 3/20 to 3/27

Categories: News

Due to the State of Emergency, we do now have to close for one week. We will be closed starting tomorrow, March 20th through Friday March 27th. We are going to attempt to re-open and have classes again starting Monday, March 30th. Please keep an eye out on your emails or Facebook just in case that changes.Thank you all for understanding! I can’t wait until we can have classes again!

In the meantime…I am going to send everyone their music for each dance via email! That way your dancers can still practice their dances!  I am also in the process of figuring out how to get videos of each dance out in order to help kids learn the parts they don’t know or don’t remember. We did put an ending on almost every dance this week, so if you missed class, the video’s will teach any parts kids didn’t know before this week as well. If kids have any questions, you can always message me the questions or put them in a video and I will answer with a video that will help! If nothing else, please remember to stretch with warmed up muscles (meaning run in place, or do some plie’s and other exercises first) while we are not having dance! 

Miss Jessica would like gymnastics and tumbling students to stretch with warmed up muscles as well (meaning run in place or do jumping jacks first). You can also practice safe non spotting moves while on break; like hand stands, cartwheels, and back bends. 

We hope to see you all sooner rather than later! Thanks!

We are open!

Categories: News

Hi parents!

I have been in contact with health officials, including the county health department. They told me that because we have less than 50 people in our studio at one time, we can remain open and still have classes. This is subject to change at any time, however, right now we are going to keep having classes.  

With that said, we ask that any one who is showing any signs of being sick stay home. You can contact Miss Nicole to go over procedure for missing classes. Attached are the posters I have been sent to put up around the studio. Feel free to go over these with your dancers to help prevent spread as well. 

We are also doing a thorough cleaning every night after classes. This includes sanitation of our floors, chairs, toys, and all door handles. We always sanitize our dance barres before classes each day, however we will be limiting use of barres for the next few weeks. Gymnastics classes use bars every other week. These are sanitized as well, but we will be wiping them down in between each persons use. If you would rather not use bars in gymnastics for the time being, just let Miss Jessica know and she will keep you learning other things! We are going to avoid holding hands or any other contact in all classes. This may be harder in our age 2-4 classes but all teachers will be washing hands in between classes and using hand sanitizer whenever contact with students is necessary. 

As always, the health and well being of our students is our number one priority! We are doing everything in our power to make sure we follow guidelines and are in contact with the right people to keep preventing spread. We will close our doors if we see it being necessary or if we are advised to by health officials, so please keep an eye on Facebook and your email just in case. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
