Hello Step Above Families,
After today’s latest update from the provincial government, it is with very heavy hearts that we announce that we will be cancelling the remaining 3 ½ weeks of our 2020/2021 season. With the announcement of the 3 steps, it is very unlikely that we will be allowed back in the studio in June at all. Once again, we are so saddened by this announcement and the loss of our recital (even virtually).
We want to sincerely thank all of our dancers, parents, and teachers for all of their hard work and patience over these past 9 months. We have been through rules and shutdowns, 9 complete reworkings of our dance schedules, and dates being moved many, many times. We have felt very loved and supported by our dance family and we are grateful to have gone through this experience with your patience, flexibility, and understanding. We know that this has not been an easy season.
Please read carefully for a breakdown of what to expect in the coming weeks and months.
Refunds and Credits
We are losing out on 3.5 weeks of classes. We have two options for all of our families going forward.
– Option #1: Receive a credit for your cancelled classes and costume fees to your accounts and receive first access to fall registration. Please note that classes will fill up quickly in September, as we will be capping all classes at 9 dancers.
– Option #2: Receive a refund for your cancelled classes and a credit for your costume fees (please note that costume fees are non-refundable but we will be offering a credit for the fall for all returning families).
Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to let us know if you would prefer a credit and early fall registration, or a refund.
As of the most recent government update, our summer day camps will still be able to run. While we do have a few full weeks, registration is available online for the following weeks of summer camp:
July 12th-16th: Christmas in July summer camp
July 19th-23rd: Lego summer camp
July 26th-30th: All Around the World summer camp
August 2nd-6th: Camp Island summer camp
August 9th-13th: Down on the Farm summer camp
August 16th-20th: Competitive Intensive and Optional PreCompetitive Intensive
You can register online at: https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/stepabovedance
Unfortunately with the new government framework, our summer mini sessions will not be allowed to run. If you have already paid for summer mini sessions, please send us an email to let us know if you would like a credit or refund for these.
If your child has registered for a ballet exam, we will be postponing our exams until the fall.
