June 2020 Newsletter

We are so thrilled to start back and excited to see all your children’s faces June 1st. Hope they are ready as much as we are. I realize this will be a whole different process of having classes but I feel it will all work out and run smoothly with your cooperation. Together we can DO THIS!

All of you should have, by now, received your new June Schedule.  It is on the MWAD web-site under the “classes” tab for easy access. Please know this schedule will allow us time to get all classes in and out in a timely manner and to sanitize in between classes. Be sure your child has all their dance shoes and supplies they need because they will not be able to use the dressing rooms. If they have Ballet/Pointe classes they will come dressed for ballet and change shoes for all other subjects. They may add their jazz pants for jazz and tap classes. So be sure they have everything in their dance bags!! Hair in a Bun for Ballet and will stay up the entire time for classes. DO NOT wear any dance shoes outside. They must come in and change shoes in the ballrooms.

Now for a few reminders:

4. PRIVATE & GROUP LESSONS  – For the month of July, don’t forget we will offer
private lessons and group lessons. It will be up to the parents and students to get a
group together. Group lessons should be groups of serious students in closely the
same age group who want to improve their skills through the summer. This can be
ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, or acro, with no more than ten students or so. Private
lessons will differ in price with each teacher. Group lessons will be $10 per student per
class. Parents should contact Ms. Monique at monique@marshawoodyacademy.com
the end of June or the first part of July with a group together already in order to set a
schedule. Payments will be made in cash each lesson when they come into class.

5. SUMMER WORKSHOPS This year with Covid-19 restrictions, setbacks, and the staff and students working hard to get ready for the recital I regrettably feel I need to cancel all summer camps & intensives until June 2021.
