Important Update - Wednesday, May 20, 2020
In light of the governor's orders, we are sad to announce that classes cannot resume on June 1st. We share in everyone's disappointment and we wish that we had better news. We have tried everything we could to salvage the end of the season, but we recognize it's time to let go. Our fall registration will continue as planned for next week with all social distancing measures in place. Holly Springs School Of Dance will open again on July 6th for summer camps and classes. Our 23rd season will begin on Monday, August 24th. To all of our students, we want you to know how much we love you and how sorry we are that we cannot finish the season in the ways we've been dreaming about. The health and safety of our dance community will always come first. You've worked so hard this year, and you have so much to be proud of. As a mom of a senior, I've been clinging to the thought of a strong finish, but it's time to accept what we cannot change. Parents, we are so grateful for the support and encouragement that you have given along this unprecedented time. Our plan is to come back stronger than ever. In the meantime, please give your dancer a big hug from us and know that we truly share in this disappointment.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

PLEASE READ ALL OF THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION COMPLETELY. ALSO KNOW THAT ALL OF THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE DEPENDING ON THE GOVERNOR’S RECOMMENDATIONS. WE WILL ALWAYS PUT OUR DANCERS AND FAMILIES FIRST.

We have missed our HSSOD family so much and we hope that everyone is staying well. We wanted to keep you updated on our plan moving forward.

After the governor’s announcement on Friday, we are moving towards reopening on June 1st. Our plan is to create an informal sharing at the studio the last week of June in order to perform our “works in progress” recital pieces in our recital costumes. We will also have our awards presentations for dancers during this time. Due to social distancing requirements, and limits on audience sizes that will most likely still be in place through July, we will not be able to have our performances in previously scheduled venues.

Teachers will work with students the weeks of June 1st-20th to get our work to a place that is ready to share with parents. In order to facilitate social distancing, we have created a performance “sharing”schedule that runs the entire day during the week of June 22nd-27th from 9am till 8:30pm. Since dancers will not be in school, we are utilizing the entire day to make sure that we are honoring the governor’s orders. We are well aware that this may be challenging for families who work, but please know that we are simply trying to make the best of these difficult circumstances. Please see the schedule for your child’s sharing time, which is posted in our “quick links” section of the website.

Dancers will arrive at the studio in full costume and perform their piece two times during the hour. The hour will be divided into two groups of audience members. The first half of parents for any given class, will watch the performance and awards recognition. During the second half of class, the other half of parents will watch a second performance and awards recognition. The teachers will communicate with parents about which half they will watch, once we get back in June. We are asking that only parents/siblings come to the sharing, and that parents videotape to share with other family members. We will have seating set up in the studios that will honor social distancing as well as staff who will consistently wipe down door handles. Although this is not the recital we have been dreaming about, we are doing everything that we can to finish on a positive note for our amazing kids who have worked so hard all year. I always tell my advanced dancers to finish strong, and this is no exception.

Some guidelines that we will be following are…

  • When we begin classes in June, we are asking that dancers are dropped off and picked up. We will have our lobby areas closed off to parents.
  • Dancers will be required to wash their hands before entering class. Our assistants will assist with this for younger classes.
  • All door handles will be sanitized on a consistent basis between classes.

  • Tuition will be due by June 1st for our final month of classes. If you have already paid April tuition, we will apply it towards June.

When I created this year’s theme “The Sky’s The Limit”, I was only imagining the incredible joy of Skylar Chappell’s senior year with all of her best friends. For 19 years, I have had one of my own children running happily into the studios each week to do what they love. This year was to be very different in so many ways, but we must accept what we cannot change, and look forward to sunnier days.

There are no real words that truthfully express my gratitude for 22 unforgettable years at HSSOD. I look forward to so many incredible opportunities for our dancers in the near future. I pray that your family continues to stay well, and I can’t wait to dance with you soon. We will continue to make dance accessible to our community through free offerings on Facebook and Instagram. In this crazy time, we believe that everyone should have access to the arts. We appreciate your continued love and support, and our dance family will be back together soon. #HSSODSTRONG
Sincerely,
Marilyn Chappell

Help a Dancer!

Do you have a way that you could support someone in our dance family? We can share acts of kindness in a variety of ways. During what has been a very difficult time for many families, here are some ways you might be able to help….

  • Offer to donate gently used shoes or leotards to share with others.
  • Pay it forward; offer to pay for a costume or one month’s tuition for a struggling family.
  • Organize a carpool to lesson the burden of transportation.
  • Volunteer your services (props construction, sewing, graphic design work, working at events) to help dancers organizing events.
  • Pledge to say something positive to every dancer you come in contact with for a whole week. Who knows, it just might become a habit and kindness is contagious!
  • Be creative! We’re open to any suggestions!

We work hard to reach out to our community, but we also want to take care of each other! Thanks for your help!
