2020-2021 Schedule & Registration
Now registering for Session 2! November 1 to Deb 18 (closed the entire week of Thanksgiving)
We are so excited to kick off our 5th season! It's hard to believe that we are already in season 5. We are excited for what this year has in store and excited to see everyone dancing together again. Miss Danielle and our instructors have been SO busy preparing to reopen the studio. We have chosen to open later in September than usual to give dancers and their parents some time to adjust to back-to-school and back-to-work and we also wanted to give ourselves enough time to make sure that all new protocols are in place to make Papermoon the absolutely safest it can be. Please be assured that we are taking covid-19 very seriously and are in compliance with every guidelines set forth by the CDC and by the state. Our hope for our studio is that dancers and parents come in and feel as comfortable as possible in our new normal.
Because of our current public health situation, we understand that committing to something from September to June may be a little scary. We understand. Things are still changing daily and we know that even though we are taking every precaution necessary, everyone is at a different comfort level in terms of getting back to the "new normal". It is also very hard for us as a small business to plan months in advance when things are forever changing...
Therefore, we are asking parents for the first half of our 2020-2021 season to commit to 6 weeks at a time. Tuition for those 6-weeks will be due upfront upon registering or paid in two installments on scheduled days. The first session will run from Sept 21 - Oct 30. The second session will run from Nov 2 - Dec 18 (there is a one week break for Thanksgiving). Before we break for winter holiday, we will be asking families to commit for the rest of the season (from Jan-June) which includes our summer recital. *note, before we open registration for our second session beginning on Nov 2, students already enrolled in classes will have the option to pre-register in order to keep their spot in class. Also, a new session could mean possible schedule adjustments.*
Please note, these 6-week sessions do not include dancers who are on our Competition Teams. Because these dancers are training and performing at a more intense and specialized level and because of the nature of commitment of competition, these dancers will commit to the season per normal. That includes your competition teams, solos, duets, trios, as well as your lyrical/jazz/ballet recital classes. Of course, if something should happen due to Covid or other pandemic where we are forced to close or go remote, we will access that situation when it comes; however, as of right now, Competition Team dancers will still train for the entire season. Competition Dancers, you have all been emailed a separate document with specific information for you.
As we begin our season, we obviously have some changes in place due to our current public health situation. Please take the time to read through all of our new Covid-19 protocols on our website.
