May 15th, Revised Action Plan

Hello CORE Families,

[Click HERE for Ontario’s Framework to Re-Open](

[Click HERE for details on Phase 1](

Here is our Revised Action Plan as of May 15th, 2020
(This is subject to change!)

Best Case Scenario
-classes resume Monday July 6th
-hopefully same days and same times
-we have 8 weeks left to complete Season 12
-we’re hoping to run our normal schedule for July and August but it will depend on having enough kids to run the classes

Worst Case Scenario
-we cancel the remaining 8 weeks of Season 12
-for those that have pre-paid April and May tuition, it is our hope that those funds remain on your accounts for Season 13
-if you need those funds returned to you, we will try to do so in a timely fashion

-our Recital has been canceled as the Sanderson Centre is closed until September

RAD Ballet Exams
-RAD Ballet exams have been canceled and will not be re-scheduled in 2020
-dancers are encouraged to continue working with the RAD App
-all Ballet dancers will progress to the next grade level in Season 13

-all tuition up to and including March should be paid in full
-if we can operate in July and August then your April and May tuition will be due at that time

Costume Deposits & Costume Balances
-all Costume Deposits & Balances should be paid in full
-we will be offering curb-side pick-up for costumes on Wednesday May 20th from 11:00am to 6:00pm and Saturday May 23rd from 1:00-4:00pm
-your account must be up-to-date in order to pick up your costumes

-I have no new information on this as of today
-I am getting more information next week if we can now hold Private Lessons in the event the Competitions offer Online Solo Competitions
-according to the details of Phase 1, I believe we can hold Private Lessons with proper Social Distancing & Sanitizing measures
-I called today for clarification on “etc.” as noted in the document attached, they told me to call back next week as they would have more details
-as of right now, the studio remains closed and we will continue to work online

Instagram Live Classes & Zoom Online Classes
-these have been a great resource for all of us to keep dancing
-these classes will continue until we’re back in the studio
-Rec Program $30 for June
-Comp Program $75 for June
-Fitness Program – contact Nicole
-feel free to send requests
-Friday is my new favourite day of the week with the family events we do 🙂
-these have been such a fun way to stay connected!!

Season 13
-we are utilizing this time to set the schedule for Season 13
-we will hold off on all registration until the world has settled down a little bit
-as soon as our Info Booklets are ready, I will send them out

Here are some things we may need to implement for Season 13:
~ dancers/faculty will sanitize in and sanitize out
~ class sizes will be capped in order to maintain Social Distancing standards
~ there will be no body contact during class
~ we will set the room up so kids are social distancing
~ we are unsure on the necessity of masks at this time
~ entrance to all studios will be from the outside of the building directly into each studio to avoid use of the common area in the lobby
~ exit from all studios will be to the outside of the building directly from each studio to avoid use of the common area in the lobby
~ no parents/guardians will be permitted inside the studio or lobby
~ we will put a gap in between all classes to sanitize the studios
~ students with multiple classes will be given supervised access to the lobby where Social Distancing standards will be clearly marked
~ the lobby will be disinfected as soon as the students return to class
~ in doing all of this, we will ensure our very special CORE loving nature to shine through and offer a welcoming (yet very sanitized) environment!
~this list will be modified as we get closer to opening
~ we will abide by all the rules and regulations set forth by the Government of Ontario to ensure we’re providing a safe environment for our kids and that we meet all the standards to re-open safely

Please stay safe and healthy!

Please try to find some enjoyment in the one-and-only-time we will be told to slow down, take a break and enjoy being at home!
