June 8th, Revised REVISED Action Plan
Hello CORE Families,
Well, our Best and Worst Case Scenarios are down the drain!! It looks like part of Phase 2 will be starting this week. We are not until Phase 3 so there is no hope for us getting back into the studio in July and August to complete Season 12 or run our Summer Camps.
Season 12 Tuition for April and May
-I will be going into the system tomorrow to start deleting April and May tuition
-I will send out statements once I am finished the process (by Friday)
-if you have NOT paid April and May tuition, you don’t have to do anything 🙂
-if you have pre-paid your April and May tuition then you will have a credit on your account
Tuition Credit Options
Your credit will remain on your account unless you advise differently
- Leave the credit on your account for Summer Classes and/or Season 13
- Gift those funds to another family if you’re not dancing in the Fall
- Request a credit via EMT
-all Costume Deposits & Balances should be paid in full
-we are hoping to have a complete “Re-Use” year next year and re-use all of the amazing costumes that we have
-we will have more info on this in the Fall
Instagram Live Classes & Zoom Online Classes
-these have been a great resource for all of us to keep dancing
-we can’t believe how well the kids are progressing online!!
-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

-we will start Fall Registration in late July
-as soon as our Info Packages are ready, I will e-mail them out
-we will follow our set Fall Schedule whether we’re in the studio or online
-we’re getting the studios equipped with better wifi
Season 13 Possibilities … we really have no idea!
- We’re back in the studio following Social Distancing and Sanitizing Guidelines
- We do two shifts: one week half the kids are in the studio and the next they’re at home doing the class online while the other half of the kids are in the studio
- Everything remains online and our teachers broadcast the class from our studio
We completely understand that some students may not be able to return to the studio due to health concerns in the household. We are working very hard to ensure we can stream our classes for kids that cannot physically come to the studio. Dance is such a positive and heathy way for the kids to exercise, express themselves and learn. We want the kids to be able to continue either at the studio or at home!
We also completely understand that online learning is not ideal for some kids. If online is our only option then we will try to make it as appealing as possible. We will have more information on this closer to September.
Here are some things we may need to implement for Season 13 WHEN we can get back into the studio:
~ 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
~ if we can ensure social distancing, the kids won’t need to wear masks (this is according to my contact at the County of Brant and may be subject to change)
~ 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 and the County of Brant to ensure we’re providing a safe environment for our kids and that we meet all the standards to re-open safely.
I will continue to update you as I receive new information!!
Please stay safe and healthy!
