Dear Emily Jade Theatre Arts students.
We hope you are all well.
The government announced last night that dance classes are allowed to resume on July 25th. Which means we SHOULD be able to get into the studio for September classes!
I look forward to meeting you on July 19th. We will look to see if it is viable to keep your current space running or if we will amalgamate classes into our current Tiptoes timetable, I aim to have this information confirmed by August 10th
Mycenae House have our timetable requests for September and have agreed to give us an answer on space by the end of this month.
Halstow are meeting over the next week and will confirm if they will allow us back by the end of next week.
Once I have all of this information I will start contacting families for September bookings.
We will start by offering spaces to our senior students and students that take 4 or more classes a week and work backwards down to single classes.
We are working really hard to make sure we will be able to offer space to all Tiptoes students and also Miss Emily’s students as a priority before opening any classes to new families.
Once we have bookings in place we will update the website with our September timetable and new protocol for pick-ups and drop-offs.
Penny and I plan to run a syllabus surgery for students from Grade 2 ballet upwards from August 17th – 21st at Mycenae House from 10am – 12pm each day. We can hopefully use this as a trial period for you to see if Tiptoes is the school for you!
We will also use this opportunity to trial our safety protocols on a smaller scale as well as start to get our first set of exam students ready for an exam session when Bbodance confirm it is safe for us to do so.
We will be contacting students to offer spaces in these classes at the start of August.
I am sorry I can’t give more concrete information at the moment but I aim to provide a full timetable and booking on the 10th of August.
For now please stay safe, keep practising and register your interest in Tiptoes below.
