All Classes Will Be Held Online April 5th-April 10th, 2021

All classes will be held online during the period of Monday, April 5th - Saturday, April 10th. This is a kind reminder that all students who are coming on-site on a rotation basis is asked to self-quarantine immediately after the Spring break from Monday, April 5th through Saturday, April 10th. All staff/faculty and students must take a COVID test (PCR only) the week of April 5th (and no later than Friday, April 10th) and receive a negative test result prior to attending any in-person classes the following week starting April 12th. It is extremely important that the test date falls within this week from April 5-10 for safety reasons regardless of what you have done during the break. If your dancer has taken a covid test last week prior to April 5th, kindly have your dancer take another PCR test this week. We do not accept rapid COVID tests. We thank you for your support to keep our CityDance family safe!

Upcoming Onsite and Online Filming for C&Y

We are so excited about our upcoming online Children and Youth Concert in May and to see all the dancers working online and onsite in preparation for the upcoming Children and Youth concert filming in April and in May. 

The Children and Youth Upper School Concert will be held via online on Saturday, May 29th. Although it will not be the same as in previous years when our whole CityDance family comes together in person to celebrate all of our dancers from Little Movers to Conservatory students on one stage, we are excited to have our Children and Youth concert in May through the online platform we used so wonderfully in December, during ReCreating the Magic concerts. We will have onsite filming for limited classes starting Saturday, April 17 and Monday, April 19 through Saturday, April 24th.  

Please click here to check the rehearsal/filming schedule for your dancer for the period of Saturday, April 17 - Saturday, April 24th.  Please check MS TEAMS by Tuesday, April 13th to see which group your dancer has been assigned to for each of their classes so you know when to bring your dancer to Strathmore. 

It is important that all students attend these scheduled rehearsals/filming and be onsite on time and complete the Daily COVID-19 Daily Health Screening Form prior to them coming on-site. This form must be completed and dated day-of, therefore will not be accepted if it is submitted the night before. And is accessible through your student's MS Teams account.

We will have a filming for the remaining classes online during the week of Monday, May 3 through Wednesday, May 13. There are only a few weeks remaining prior to our onsite and online filming days so it is very important that dancers attend all their remaining classes. Thank you and we are so looking forward and excited for our online Children and Youth Concert in 2021!
