October Newsletter

Hello CAD Dancers & Families,

We have thoroughly enjoyed seeing everyone back at the studio, we have had a wonderful start to the year! In this newsletter, you will find helpful reminders, new class announcements, as well as some information on upcoming events.
Health & Safety Reminders
As we all get back into our routines, we would like to remind everyone of the policies and procedures that will help to keep our community thriving.
Masks and face coverings are strongly encouraged for all dancers, (above the age of 5) when entering and exiting their classrooms. Social distancing can not be maintained while transitioning out of the classroom, and for this reason, we are encouraging everyone to wear their masks or face coverings. Once you have entered the classroom, the masks and coverings are optional. When it comes to wearing a mask during class, we would like to suggest that you make this decision as a family and instruct your child accordingly.
Please wash or sanitize your hands each time you enter the building.
Please do not enter the building until just before your class begins, or once you have been invited in by your teacher. The exception would be if you need to use the washroom to change. Strive to arrive dressed and ready to go!
All hip hop dancers will need to wear clean running shoes for their classes.
We would also like to thank everyone that has been considerate of their fellow classmates by staying home when you are feeling ill. If your child will be absent, please take a moment to email the office so we may inform the teacher.
New Class Time Announcement!
Our Tiny Tumblers class has been moved to Mondays from 4:00-4:45. Students will have a blast while exploring creative movement, basic dance vocabulary, and an introduction to acrobatics. If your dancer is interested in joining or trying this class, please let us know. This class is for 3-5 year olds.
