Updated Information

 

Health guidelines in returning back to IN STUDIO classes

  • Parents are asked to drop students off at the door. No-one else other than the instructor/Staff and students will be allowed in the building. If a young student needs for a parent to walk them in to class, we will allow one parent to do so. The parent then must return outside after the child is comfortable in the classroom
  • The instructors must wear a mask and gloves while in the building. We do recommend for the students to also wear a mask
  • Students & Staff must wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before and after class
  • The instructor must take their own temperature and the student’s temperature before class. The temperature must not be over 100.4 in order to teach or take the class. I have the no touch, fast read, electronic forehead thermometers to use. (Parents must remain outside and available the first 5 min of class in case the student is not approved to take class. After waiting the 5 min, parents are welcome to leave and come back by the end of class)
  • Students in lobby must stay 6 feet apart and use the marked X areas. We ask that parents be there to pick your child up outside the building on time
  • Instructors/Office assistant will disinfect highly touched areas such as door knobs, counters, Barres, thermometers, bathroom faucets & flush knobs, mats and silks between each class. The studio will be thoroughly wiped and disinfected each morning by 9:00 am

Projected Summer and 2019/20 Extended Season/Recital

Extended 2019/20 class season and Dance Team review

July 6 we will begin in studio recital review classes and competition rehearsals. We will plan for a late July or Aug recital. (Location and dates cannot be determined at this time as venues are not able to set bookings until guidelines open up for them to do so. We are in hopes by July 6 we will be able to have a recital date set) In the past we have held the recital on a Saturday or Sunday. We will be taking into consideration of possibly performing during the week, if necessary.

As we return back for the 2019/20 recital review classes and team rehearsals, we will be taking many precautions in modifying the classroom structure and enforcing health guidelines. Classes will be shortened to allow for students to exit the building and staff to clean as well as adjusting times to be working on recital routines. A modified schedule will be sent and posted by May 18th. There will be a google doc link created and attached to the adjusted schedule to use for class attendance. We ask for you to please add your child’s name to the class on the Doc so that the instructors will know who is planning on returning and attending the 2019/20 recital review classes and performing in the recital. (if you are unable to get into the google doc…. No worries… this is just a guide for instructors to have an idea of who will be attending.)

As Friday and Saturdays are often spent with vacationing, lake trips and many family activities over the summer months we thought it might be best to move these classes during the week. Please look for some adjustments to the schedule for the Friday and Saturday classes.

Health guidelines in returning back to IN STUDIO recital classes on July 6

  • Parents are asked to drop students off at the door. No-one else other than the instructor/Staff and students will be allowed in the building. If a young student needs for a parent to walk them in to class, we will allow one parent to do so. The parent then must return outside after the child is comfortable in the classroom

  • Students & Staff must wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before and after class
  • The instructor must take their own temperature and the student’s temperature before class. The temperature must not be over 101.1 in order to teach or take the class. I have the no touch, fast read, electronic forehead thermometers to use. (Parents must remain outside and available the first 5 min of class in case the student is not approved to take class.

As April and Mays tuition was charged with a %25 discount off Mays tuition….there will be no additional tuition or dance team payments for the extended 2019/20 season beginning July 6.  Instructors teaching classes will continue to be paid their regular pay in addition to any of the on-line classes or videos they have been providing for their students. For those who have paid in full for their 2019/20 tuition and dance team fees, you will also receive the 25% discount given by the studio, due to this uncertain time. We will be contacting you within the next two weeks as to how this will be applied or reimbursed. Anyone who has not received their recital costume will receive it when we return or can pick it up at the studio on Mon/Wed between 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM.

Myself and staff want to thank you for your patients and continued support. Through your kind support…. we have been able to offer continuous employment for instructors and staff to be able to provide students the best education we can during this uncertain time.

Lastly…. The 2020/21 season will now begin on Sept. 8. Any August tuition payments made for the 2020/21 season will now be applied to your September tuition.

The Starz Dance Team Audition dates will remain the same. Auditions are scheduled for August 30 and rehearsal will begin Sept. 13 of 2020. Ms. Andrea will be sending information out by the end of the week on the 2019/20 competition updates. Please look for that to come.

We thank you again and cannot wait to see all of you in class,

Angie’s Studio

Wishing everyone happiness and good health!

Keep on dancing!!!!

We are very sad to inform our silks students we will no longer be able to provide silks classes. The insurance companies have significantly increased their rates or will not provide insurance, for the smaller business, for this type of activity. In addition, many venues will no longer allow silks to be performed at their location. Myself and Ms. Colleen are looking at other options for those who would like to continue silks classes. Due to uncertain times, we are unable to provide you with solid information.  Once accurate information on possible silks classes becomes available, we will inform you at that time.

Recital/Competition & Summer/Fall Class Registration.

Dear Studio Families,

We hope each and every one of you are doing well. We wanted to give you an update as to what our thoughts are for the remainder of the season, recital and class registrations for summer and fall. Our hopes are, once we are cleared to return back to the studio, we will continue to work hard on routines, flexibility and conditioning. We have reached out to several venues for multiple options to perform the recital but cannot be certain at this time exactly where and when it WILL be. The recital picture date alternatives have also been discussed with the photographer and have been postponed until further notice.

All our students have worked so hard for this day and we are doing everything to make certain this day WILL come for them.

We will be posting the 2020/21 schedule soon for you to begin registering for classes. You will be receiving your class placement information for registering for the 2020/21 season by email.

Thank you so much for all your support you have given. Hang in there…. We are all in this together!

The show must go on!

Ms.  Angie and Staff

_________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Starz Dance Team Family,

We wanted to take a moment to address the status of this competition season. There are still so many uncertainties, making it impossible to give any definitive answers at this time. We are keeping track of and following the on-going Covid-19 developments and mandates. We are also keeping close tabs on our competitions and options they are offering. All of which are best laid plans. Until the quarantine officially ends and we are given the all clear, we can only make guesses as to which options will work for our studio. We will continue to monitor all options afforded us, with the full focus and intent on participating in all three competitions in some capacity this season. Please review below the most updated information we have for each competition.

•At this time we are optimistic we will be able to attend the Platinum Nationals event at the scheduled time. They have not announced plans to re-schedule their regional event but continue to add virtual competitions on-line, which could be a possibility down the road. We will not be able to participate in a virtual experience until we are allowed back in the studio to dance together but will keep looking for possible later added dates. If it doesn’t pan out, as mentioned previously, we will apply the regional fees to your Nationals invoice.

Fly Dance Competition has rescheduled the St. Louis regional event for the weekend of May 29th-31st. However, this is also the weekend of the Wentzville School District’s 3 high school graduations, which affects a few of our dancers and several dance families. There is a chance graduation may be postponed or handled differently, so we’ll have to wait and see. They are also offering a virtual competition, which we’d have to submit our videos by May 1st with virtual awards on May 15th. Again, this will depend on when the shelter in place is lifted.

According to the website, Mark of Excellence has re-scheduled the St. Louis event for June 5-7th. However, we have not received any direct updated correspondence from their office.

We are truly hoping to finish this season strong. We genuinely miss each and every one of you. Our dance family is never far from our mind. We will continue exploring options to ensure we get the most of this season and all their hard work.

We appreciate your patience and support during this incredibly difficult and uncertain times. You are all in our continued thoughts and prayers.

Thank you,
Dance Team Faculty 🙂

Studio Family Update!

Dear Studio Families,

We are terribly disappointed to announce we will not be able to resume back to classes on April 6th as hoped, and need to keep studio doors closed until further notice.

We are all saddened by this unfortunate turn of events, and trust that our patrons will understand that the health and welfare of our community is paramount.

The student’s performances are what they have worked so hard for all year. We are planning, as much as we can, to make this happen for them. If our currently booked venue will not be available, we have contacted and reserved several other venues for us to use. Once we are allowed, and all is safe, we will set the date for the show to go on!!!

In the meantime, please keep working hard with the on-line classes, practicing your dances, staying conditioned and eating healthy. For the next week we will be adding on-line class videos for you to continue your education along with videos of teaching choreography to those classes who have not finished their dances.

If we are not back at the studio within a week, we will begin LIVE on-line classes through zoom. This will allow the instructors to see and interact with their students. Instructions on how to do this and the class schedules will go out and be posted on the website later next week.

The studio administrators and instructors are working very hard and doing our best to continue to offer students education, conditioning and practices. Much time has been spent with reworking the original planned events, class curriculum and recording class videos. We want to thank those for understanding with continuing to financially support and sending out kind words and love our way. It truly means so much to myself and the studio staff family.

We will continue to communicate, as information becomes available, as to what the plans will be moving forward. PlE

Wishing you all Health, Happiness and Smiles as we navigate this uncertain time!

Sincerely,

Ms. Angie and Studio Staff

Please enjoy the attached slide show messages from all of us at Angie’s Studio!!!

Updates on COVID-19

Dear Studio Parents,

We are certainly in unprecedented times due to the unfortunate circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus. We care deeply for our students and their families. We would like to offer some comfort and help during this time of uncertainty. At this time, we will be discounting May tuition by 25%. For those of you who have paid in full, we will reevaluate the situation in the weeks to come and contact you as to how this will be reimbursed or discounted.

In addition we are excited to offer a bit of normalcy to your child’s routine. Instructors will continue to prepare curriculum with on-line classes to further educate and keep the students active and engaged. The teachers have been hard at work preparing and pre-recording lessons for classes. An e-mail will be sent as to how to access the on-line classes. Please note, some levels will be combined and the length of certain classes will be shorter since we will not need to account for students taking turns across the floor. These lessons will account for the limitation of space since kids will likely be taking class from home.

We are looking forward to presenting these on-line classes in our efforts to continue your child’s dance, tumble and silks education.

We are also working to have recital music available for practicing at home. If space is limited, taking the time to go through the dance in your head and or marking it with your feet and arms is very helpful.

A special thank you to Ms. Andrea, Miss Brady, Ms. Colleen, Ms. Julie, Ms. Kathryn, Ms. Michelle, Miss Hannah, Faith and Rylea! Ms. Andrea has taken much time and effort coordinating the on-line videos, and Miss Hannah has been our social media specialist. All have been hard at work reworking lesson plans to accommodate and bring classes into your home. We hope that you all take advantage of the on-line classes we are offering and any social media posts with fun activities and challenges.

Thank you for your support, patience and understanding as we navigate these new waters. We have received several supportive and positive feedback from our studio families and are feeling very grateful for this.

Wishing health and happiness to you and your families.

Thank you,
Ms. Angie Kortkamp & Staff
