CityDance School and Conservatory Monthly Newsletter: March 2020

Safety Update

As news of the coronavirus continues to unfold this week, we recommend additional caution in accordance with policies supported by the WHO, CDC and USDS. Please note that this virus is not currently widespread in the United States, and the below at this point are precautionary measures. If cases continue to develop in any of our CityDance locations, we will follow the local school system regarding possible closures and class/rehearsal cancellations. Hopefully, the situation will become contained, and if there is any disruption to the students’ curriculum, we will adapt as needed.
Students should never attend classes/rehearsals if they are exhibiting any of the following symptoms: fever/feverish chills, incessant coughing/sneezing, sore throat, runny/stuffy nose, unusual muscle/body aches or fatigue. Please continue to follow our absence notification protocol to notify our CityDance staff when your child is absent due to an illness. During this flu season,  please remind your children to wash their hands regularly throughout the day for at least 20 seconds each time. We also provide hand sanitizer at the CityDance front desk and in studios for students and staff. Do not touch your face with unwashed hands, especially your eyes, nose and mouth.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we do our best to keep all of our CityDance family members happy and healthy!

Spend Your Summer at CityDance: S&C Camps

CityDance’s themed children and youth camps offer learning and fun through culture and creativity. Young dancers learn multi-cultural myths and themes from around the globe and are invited to explore how the tales relate to their daily lives. They take daily classes in ballet, modern, jazz, hip hop and world dance forms and learn challenging choreography in multiple styles. Young dancers imagine, improvise and learn to express themselves through the creation of their own dances as well. Dance, ideas, cultural themes, music, visual art and poetry are woven together in a final performance for family and friends. We only have five spots remaining in our summer camps, register now to secure your child's spot.

June 16 - August 21, 2020 9am-3pm with the option of aftercare from 3-5pm

CityDance Summer Intensive Audition

CityDance is bringing professional artists from around the US and the world to Rockville, Maryland this summer! Train with artists from Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH), Koresh Dance and other world-renowned companies and CityDance faculty this summer. Due to this relocation, we are unable to accommodate as many students as last year in our Koresh & International intensives since they will take place at Strathmore. Therefore if your child is interested in attending one of these intensives we strongly recommend registering as soon as possible. It is important to note that we have acceptances coming in weekly for these programs from recent auditioners and have our next audition at Strathmore on March 21, 2020. Ideally we prefer these limited spots be given to our in-house CityDance students as a priority. Intensives are open to students ages 8 to 20.
If you or your student currently attend Saturday classes at Strathmore, the audition fee is waived on this audition date. Please RSVP your attendance to this audition HERE.
If your student does not attend classes on Saturday, or you have family/friends who would like to audition, please register for the audition HERE. For more information, visit or email
