Hello RDA Families,
Thank you so much for all of your support through this time! It has been a real joy to see our dancers each week with our on-line virtual zoom classes and to be able to continue with something we all love so much.... Dance!!! RDA parents, students, teachers and office staff have been absolutely amazing through this transition and we are so thankful to you all!!! The kids really light up with happiness to see each other and their teachers and to continue to do what they love each week, it really brings a bit of hope, love and togetherness through these times. We hope you are all safe and well. We are praying for you all & know with faith & hope things will get better. Please give our love to our RDA dancers and let them know we miss them and we will see them again in person soon!
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve daily the health of our families and dancers, as well as the health of our staff and teachers, remain top priority to us. We will continue with virtual classes on-line via ZOOM and your dancers will be able to continue to log in and dance with us from home. The Zoom classes have been going great! Thank you to everyone who has joined us and we encourage everyone to join in!!! We are so happy we have found a way our dancers can keep moving while home, connect with us here at RDA, stay in shape and keep active! We are excited to announce we will resume with our teams starting May with Zoom and the schedule is already online.
The Summer Ballet, Musical & Showcase rehearsals have been going well and will continue in the month of May also. If your dancers have any make up lessons they may take them via zoom as long as they are at their level. Try something new and make it fun for the kids! Parents join in and dance with your kids with our zoom classes, they will enjoy the time with you seeing what they do. The ZOOM classes, information and access to our virtual classes is for current RDA students only BUT we are accepting new students and sign ups to join us, so please do contact us to start dancing with us today! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (951)941-0732.
We are doing our best to follow CDC recommendations on how to proceed daily and will also do our best to keep our RDA families informed as to when we can resume classes on site at RDA. We really miss seeing you all but really love to see you all on-line with Zoom! We know things will improve and get better. We will all be here at RDA dancing again before we know it! We have been working hard to make this transition as easy and simple as possible and things have been going really well.
We are staying informed as to when we can re open for on site classes and evaluating and planning the safest ways to do so when the time does come. We will keep you all updated as much as we can.
