Online Classes, starting September 14th 2020

We are pleased to announce a series of online dance classes, starting September 14th 2020. These will be live classes from our Winchester studio, streamed with interaction over Zoom.

We are offering these both to our local students who prefer not to take classes in the studio during the Covid-19 emergency, and to students around the country and around the world who would like to take these classes with us.

Please register for these classes in the normal way through our Registration page. You will need to scroll nearly to the end of the list of classes to find the online classes.

Initially we are offering the following classes online:

Ballet for Young Children

Pre-Primary 1 (Beginners age 3-4)

  • Tuesdays 6:00 pm – 6:45 pm

Students may switch between online and in person classes at any time by prior arrangement, subject to space limitations in the studio.

We will not be offering online classes for higher levels of Acro and Ballet, because we are concerned about safety as well as the effectiveness of online only instruction.

Register Now for our 2020-21 Dance Classes!

Registration and enrollment is now open for 2020-21 dance classes, starting August 17th, in our studios in Winchester and Edinburg, Virginia.

We can teach your child or teen Classical BalletAcro danceTapLyrical Dance, and Modern and Jazz Dance, in classes for students age 3 and up.

See the registration instructions at the end of this post.

As we watch the Covid-19 situation, we are going ahead with our plans for classes in our studios, mostly as normal but with extra safety precautions.

We are also planning online alternatives for students who prefer not to take classes in our studios. Please let us know if this is your preference.

This year we are not holding an Open House, but we are offering Free Trial Classes by appointment only, by email to studio@italiapa.com.

Class Changes

We have appointed two new teachers: Kat Carlson, who will start by teaching Lyrical and Ballet Essentials in Winchester, and Maddy Tighe, who will teach Tap and Modern and Jazz Dance also in Winchester. Eleanor Bittel will now teach Ballet for younger children in Edinburg as well as in Winchester, while Eva Zitterkob specializes in Acro in both studios. Lorenza Manara Marchi continues to teach our Ballet Pro and Pointe classes.

Our Musical Theatre and Rising Star Vocals classes are taking a break, partly because of issues with Covid-19 and singing.

Our new Modern and Jazz Dance class replaces our Jazz and Hip-Hop class.

We are reorganizing our Ballet classes for students age 8+, as follows:

  • Our new Ballet Basics class replaces Ballet Pro 1 and Ballet Essentials 1. Beginners, age 8+, and recreational students should take one class a week. Winchester students intending to take Ballet Pro later should take two classes a week.
  • Our Ballet Essentials class, formerly Ballet Essentials 2, is for beginners age 10+ and recreational students. In Edinburg this class is combined with Ballet Basics.
  • In our Pro stream, last year’s Pro 2, Pro 3 and Pro 4 classes have been reorganized, with new material, into Pro A, Pro B, and Intermediate. We offer additional Pointe classes for our Pro B and Intermediate students. Intermediate classes will be in Winchester only.

Additional 2020-21 Classes and Time Changes

We are pleased to announce additional classes for 2020-21, and a few minor changes to class times. The changes are for our Winchester studio only.

Ballet Pro A on Saturdays

We understand that 4:00 pm is a difficult time for some students to get to class. Also we have more potential Pro A students than we can safely fit in the main studio room, while Covid-19 is still around.

So we are adding a Saturday morning alternative, two back to back classes running from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. These classes will start on September 12th. Please enroll your student in them as two separate classes.

Tap

We are now announcing our Tap classes for 2020-21:

  • Age 3-5: Fridays 5:45 pm – 6:30 pm
  • Age 6-9: Fridays 6:45 pm – 7:30 pm
  • Age 10+: Wednesdays 6:45 pm – 7:30 pm

The Friday classes will be taught by Maddy Tighe, who was a substitute teacher for us in late 2019 and early 2020. Eva Zitterkob will teach the Wednesday class.

Modern and Jazz

Maddy Tighe will also teach for us a new Modern and Jazz Dance class, on Fridays 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm.

Acro Darlings Extra Class

We are pleased to see good demand for our new Acro Darlings class in Winchester, for age 3-6. So we are adding an extra class, on Wednesdays 4:00 – 4:45 pm.

Wednesday Class Time Changes

So that we can fit in the extra Acro Darlings class, we are moving our other Wednesday classes 15 minutes later, as follows:

  • 4:45 – 5:45: Acro level 2/3
  • 5:45 – 6:30: Acro Darlings (the original class)
  • 6:45 – 7:45: Ballet Essentials
  • 7:45 – 8:45: Lyrical

Special offers until July 31st

You have just one week left to take advantage of these special offers:

  • Registration, online or through the portal, reduced to $20 for the first student in a family, $10 for each additional student (normally $30 and $15)
  • Special discount for tuition paid in advance by July 31st: 15% off payment for the full school year, 10% off for the half school year (normally 10% and 5%)
