Dear Charlotte School of Ballet Families,
First & foremost, we would like to thank everyone for their kind words of support and encouragement. This last week has been filled with an overwhelming amount of emotions and challenges. We are beyond grateful to have the most incredible dance families. The health and safety of our dancers and families are of the utmost importance to us. After much discussion, the Charlotte School of Ballet has made the following decisions in response to the COVID-19:
The Charlotte School of Ballet will be closed Monday, March 16 through Sunday, March 29th. At this time, we plan to re-open Monday, March 30th. We will remain OPEN during our originally scheduled spring break week, April 10 – 18, with the exception of Easter weekend Friday 4/10 through Sunday 4/12.
This year, for the first time, we scheduled to hold classes an additional two weeks after the recital. With these additional two weeks of classes, holding classes spring break week, and the additional recital rehearsals, dancers will receive a full year of classes. Please feel free to make up classes in another class of the same or similar level if you desire. The two weeks of classes after the recital will be a great opportunity for any make up classes, or an opportunity to try a new style of dance.
We know there are many more questions and details to communicate to our CSB families. We are working through these now and will be sending additional information to you via email as soon as possible.
We thank you for your trust and we look forward to being back together in our classes and rehearsal as soon as possible.
