WE CAN’T WAIT TO DANCE WITH YOU
Island Groove Dance Studio teachers and I are excited to welcome you back! We have missed our students SO much and look forward to dancing together again. Our Fall Dance & Tumble Season offerings do look a little different than a typical schedule of IGD in light of the unprecedented times. BUT we are excited to announce NO Registration fees as we introduce our 6 Weeks Session Program!
IGD DANCING PLAN
We are able to open in-studio classes with new safe studio standards. We have a detailed plan to share which includes new procedures for drop off and pick up and strict cleaning protocols between classes and nightly in addition to the professional studio deep cleaning. Everything you need to know about how we will be safely reopening the studio is in this newsletter. Please take some time to read thoroughly.
I would like to commend our dedicated teachers who, without hesitation, stepped up to help IGD quickly pivot to bring you, virtual classes, during the closure.
We’re deeply grateful to those of you who have reached out and shown support in keeping IGD alive in midst of the announcement of our closing.
As IGD reopens, be assured that your child’s safety and health is a priority and we have adapted our operations to adhere to the CDC safe practice guidelines.
How IGD is Working to Protect You with Our New Safe Studio Standards?
Upon reopening, all surfaces will have been disinfected with Benefect and renovated key traffic areas. We have also implemented new safe studio standards broken down into 3 categories.
• DANCE SAFE
• CLEAN PRACTICE
• CHECK YOURSELF
Finally, our push to safely reopen is heavily weighted on the fact that our dance community is a vital tool for our children’s mental and physical health and wellness and provides a necessary sense of overall well-being and connectedness.
Island Groove Dance Studio has been rooted in the Big Pine Community. Together with our valued parents and students, we have created a very unique and special dance family within this community. Looking ahead, the future is uncertain. The closure has no doubt presented significant challenges. Coupled with the possibility that our fall classes and beyond could be affected with another potential closure or delayed full opening, we are at a critical juncture.
What has been amazing to witness is the number of families willing to donate their tuition credits back to our studio. To ensure IGD’s viability, we ask for your support by signing up for either in-studio June through August and beyond. We thank you in advance so that we can recover and thrive in the months ahead.
We are so excited to see our students back and to be able to share in the experience of learning and dancing again. Together we will journey the path ahead!
With much love and gratitude,
