Weekly classes will return to in-person instruction during the week beginning March 1, 2021. Students must wear masks during class time. Weekend classes will be on a hybrid schedule which means in-person and virtual classes will be on a rotation to keep the traffic of students low during the weekends.
Our team has developed a hybrid model that will allow our full tuition and company students to participate in both in-person and virtual training sessions. We realized that the virtual setting is helpful in keeping our students engaged, but we learned quickly how student technique and skill are suffering due to lack of focus, training inefficiencies, and zoom fatigue. To battle this challenge, students will attend two in-person sessions and two zoom sessions each month. All in-person rehearsals must follow our social distancing guidelines.
Our virtual-only academy will still be available, however, to start we will only offer virtual classes on Thursdays. Thursday classes will include, Jazz, Ballet, and Modern. From 6 pm to 7 pm Eastern Standard Time. Through this offering, we have been able to reach students everywhere.
