Platinum Schedule

Hello Parents,
We have received the tentative schedule for the upcoming Platinum Competition. We will be competing on Friday, March 12th. Our studio performance time block will start at 2:00 PM. This means students will need to arrive dressed and ready for their first routine by 1:15 PM. Platinum will be conducting temperature checks for all students, staff and spectators upon entry, which means there is no time to get ready after you arrive. 
We understand this means parents may have to miss work and students will have to miss part of their school day. We wanted to let you know now, so you can make the necessary arrangements.
They will be limiting spectators for this event. When we have detailed information on how many per family, we will let you know. They will be offering a free livestream on their homepage.
We’ve also attached the performance order. We don’t have their official routine numbers, but wanted to give you the line-up.

Projected Summer and 2019/20 Extended Season

Dear Studio Families, we hope all of you are doing well and miss each of you. Our staff has been working hard with the LIVE ZOOM and video classes to continue to educate, motivate and keeping the mind and body active. Each instructor has been enjoying being able to see the students working hard in class. GREAT JOB STUDENTS!!!!

I would also like to add I am very proud and impressed with our staff for adjusting to this new way of teaching. They have been more than willing to do what they can to help out during this time. Ms. Andrea has been a tremendous help with the Zoom on line classes in coordinating with the instructors, planning the schedules and posting the on-line video links. In addition Ms. Hannah is doing a super job with engaging students in activities and posts through social media. Each and every one of my staff has been as helpful as possible and I appreciate and thank all of them for this.

With much thought and careful consideration for the staff and studio family members, we are excited to announce we have a projected plan in play in moving forward with summer classes and the 2019/20 extended season and recital.

We will be continuing the Zoom classes and recital review/choreography until May 22. Please be sure students are taking class to ensure they are learning the added choreography as most instructors will be finishing the dances within the next two weeks of Zoom classes.

We will then begin a 5 week summer Zoom session, June 1 – July 3. This will allow students to continue their class education and keep the mind and body working and conditioned. You may register for these classes on line, beginning May 18th. We ask that you please continue practicing your recital routines during this time!

 Extended 2019/20 class season and Dance Team review

July 6 we will begin in studio recital review classes and competition rehearsals. We will plan for a late July or Aug recital. (Location and dates cannot be determined at this time as venues are not able to set bookings until guidelines open up for them to do so. We are in hopes by July 6 we will be able to have a recital date set) In the past we have held the recital on a Saturday or Sunday. We will be taking into consideration of possibly performing during the week, if necessary.

As we return back for the 2019/20 recital review classes and team rehearsals, we will be taking many precautions in modifying the classroom structure and enforcing health guidelines. Classes will be shortened to allow for students to exit the building and staff to clean as well as adjusting times to be working on recital routines. A modified schedule will be sent and posted by May 18th. There will be a google doc link created and attached to the adjusted schedule to use for class attendance. We ask for you to please add your child’s name to the class on the Doc so that the instructors will know who is planning on returning and attending the 2019/20 recital review classes and performing in the recital. (if you are unable to get into the google doc…. No worries… this is just a guide for instructors to have an idea of who will be attending.)

As Friday and Saturdays are often spent with vacationing, lake trips and many family activities over the summer months we thought it might be best to move these classes during the week. Please look for some adjustments to the schedule for the Friday and Saturday classes.

Health guidelines in returning back to IN STUDIO recital classes on July 6

  • Parents are asked to drop students off at the door. No-one else other than the instructor/Staff and students will be allowed in the building. If a young student needs for a parent to walk them in to class, we will allow one parent to do so. The parent then must return outside after the child is comfortable in the classroom
  • The instructors must wear a masks while in the building. Masks for students are optional. No masks are to be worn during silks for the safety of it possibly catching.
  • Students & Staff must wash their hands or use hand sanitizer before class
  • The instructor must take their own temperature and the student’s temperature before class. The temperature must not be over 101.1 in order to teach or take the class. I have the no touch, fast read, electronic forehead thermometers to use. (Parents must remain outside and available the first 5 min of class in case the student is not approved to take class. After waiting the 5 min, parents are welcome to leave and come back by the end of class)
  • Students in lobby must stay 6 feet apart and use the marked taped areas. We ask that parents be there to pick your child up outside the building on time
  • Instructors/Office assistant will disinfect highly touched areas such as door knobs, counters, Barres, thermometers, bathroom faucets & flush knobs, mats and silks between each class. The studio will be thoroughly wiped and disinfected each morning by 9:00 am
  • Instructors must take roll to keep track of all who enter the building

RELEASE OF LIABILITY: BY PARTICIPATING IN THE LIVE ONLINE CLASSES, VIDEO CLASSES, SOCIAL MEDIA ACTIVITIES OR IN STUDIO CLASSES THROUGH ANGIE’S STUDIO, I UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT I WILL NOT HOLD ANGIE’S STUDIO, MS. ANGELA KORTKAMP, OWNER & DIRECTOR, OR ANY FACULTY MEMBER LIABLE FOR ANY INJURY POSSIBLY SUSTAINED OR ANY ILLNESS CONTRACTED WHILE TAKING THESE ONLINE OR INSTUDIO CLASSES OR PARTICIPATING IN ANY ACTIVITIES POSTED BY ANGIE’S STUDIO OR FACULTY MEMBER.

As April and Mays tuition was charged with a %25 discount off Mays tuition….there will be no additional tuition or dance team payments for the extended 2019/20 recital season beginning July 6 – Recital.  Instructors teaching classes will continue to be paid their regular pay in addition to any of the on-line classes or videos they have been providing for their students. For those who have paid in full for their 2019/20 tuition and dance team fees, you will also receive the 25% discount given by the studio, due to this uncertain time. We will be contacting you within the next two weeks as to how this will be applied or reimbursed.

Myself and staff want to thank you for your patients and continued support. Through your kind support…. we have been able to offer continuous employment for instructors and staff to be able to provide students the best education we can during this uncertain time.

Note……The 2020/21 season will now begin on Sept. 8. Any August tuition payments made for the 2020/21 season will now be applied to your September tuition.

The Starz Dance Team Audition dates will remain the same. Auditions are scheduled for August 23 and rehearsal will begin Sept. 20 of 2020. Ms. Andrea will be sending information out by the end of the week on the 2019/20 competition updates. Please look for that to come.

We thank you again and cannot wait to see all of you in class,

Angie’s Studio

Wishing everyone happiness and good health!      Keep on dancing!!!!
