Registration and enrollment is now open for 2020-21 dance classes, starting August 17th, in our studios in Winchester and Edinburg, Virginia.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
New student families: Please register for classes at our Registration page.
Current student families: Please register for these classes through our Portal. When you log in to this, you will see our recommendations for classes for your student(s). You are welcome to enroll them also for classes in a new style of dance, or to register another family member. Please also make sure to check and update your family information.
Please contact us if you have issues with online registration or if you need a paper registration form.
If you enter credit or debit card or bank account details, the registration fee will be charged to your card or account, within a few hours or no later than the next working day.
We look forward to seeing our wonderful students, current and new, for a new year of dance!
