Hey there Street of Dreams Families!
At SOD, the health and safety of our faculty and dreamers are our most important priorities. Yesterday Gov. J. B. Pritzker has directed the State Department of Health Services to mandate all K-12 schools to shut down beginning Tuesday, March 17th. We have determined that it is in the best interest of our faculty and families to temporarily suspend all classes/rehearsals for that time period as well. Our last day of classes before the shutdown will be the same as the schools, Monday, March 16th. All Monday classes will run as scheduled, and Mr. Lucas is BACK to start our ballet classes/recital!
To manage this change, Tuesday, March 17th- Monday, March 23rd, we will be closed. There will be the opportunity to make up your class(es) as we have extended our make up policy through December, 31st 2020, allowing no changes with tuition schedule. As our tuition policy states, Spring Break is already excluded from tuition. Classes may be made up during our Summer Session and/or our next Fall Session.
Additionally, we will be moving our previously scheduled Spring Break up to Tuesday, March 24th- Monday, March 30th (meaning we will not have our previously scheduled Spring Break Sunday, March 29th- Monday, April 6th). We are planning to resume classes along with local schools on Tuesday, March 31st.
If anything changes with this timeline, we will let you know. In the meantime, we have been in contact with recital suppliers, as well as venues, and our recital dates remain unchanged.
We will continue to monitor the situation, and if any other changes to our season are needed we will update you accordingly.
As always, especially now, we greatly appreciate your support during these challenging times and so do our dreamers and teachers! Street of Dreams will continue to be a safe, positive, and inspirational environment for your dreamers & families at the studio and at home! With that being said, we have some exciting content to continue our dance education & classes coming soon! We will remain with our positive structure when our dreamers need it the most! Stay tuned for updates!!
