RE: Closure Update
Dear Aspire Dance Families,
First, we want to thank you all for the love and support you have shown us during this uncertain time. The thoughtful emails and messages are truly keeping our spirits lifted. We appreciate you all.
As you are aware, we are following Massachusetts state guidelines and are not able to hold classes in the studio. Earlier this week, we learned that the schools will remain closed through May 4 and therefore we must remain closed through this date as well.
To say we are heartbroken is a huge understatement. To us, Aspire Dance Center is about so much more than dance class. We truly miss spending our days with the children and cannot wait until we can get back into the studio to see everyone again. In the meantime, we remain committed to providing virtual classes which will allow the children to keep up with their dance education and interact with their classmates.
We know you have some questions and we will be making announcements soon as we navigate through this new and uncertain time. We have also included a few frequently asked questions below:
APRIL TUITION INSTALLMENT: We understand that many of our families are suffering financial loss during this time and therefore have applied a 50% discount to the April tuition installment. If you are unable to make this payment, please let us know and we will make sure your dancer is able continue participating.
VIRTUAL CLASSES: Our entire staff is working incredibly hard to maintain a sense of normalcy for the dancers by preparing and holding virtual classes through Zoom. We completely understand that this can be challenging (it’s definitely harder for us!) due to space issues, wifi issues, schedules, anxiety, etc. and we want you to know how much we appreciate everyone’s support and patience while we adjust.
RECITAL & PICTURE DAY: We sincerely hope we are able to hold these events but it is completely dependent on how quickly this crisis passes. As soon as we are able to resume business as usual, we will share updates.
Please continue to check your email and our facebook group frequently for updates and fun surprises. We miss you all and are thankful that you are part of the Aspire Family. We will certainly get through this together.
With all our love,
Mandy Christenson & Melissa Dube
