Following last night’s government announcement, unfortunately the studios will remain physically closed for the foreseeable future. It is disappointing, but we must have hope that we are on the final stretch now and much better times are coming. Therefore, we have amended our timetable to continue to offer online lessons where appropriate, starting Tues 5th Jan. I apologise for the late notice on classes, particularly for tonight.
As a centre of excellence, we hope to still offer great quality classes and the aim is for the children to have fun, to keep them motivated and to continue with learning and progression. Once again, great progress was achieved throughout 2020 despite the challenges as attested to by the 12 days of exams we were able to squeeze in in Dec and the results that have trickled in so far. I have no doubt that the remaining results will also be brilliant once they arrive. So we will do our best to keep ElliTe Studios and the children going in these difficult times.
Our lockdown 3.0 timetable (excel document and line listing) has been emailed out to all existing pupils. Some classes will not run until we are back at the studios due to impracticalities of running via Zoom (young age of participants or challenging genre). These include Tots classes, Acro classes and Primary Tap classes.
For most syllabus classes, there is currently only one class option a week whilst we are on Zoom. All pupils should join their relevant syllabus level class regardless of the day they usually attend the studios. Options exist to double-up and participate in the next grade up also if pupils are wanting to make the most of the situation / want more classes / want to progress faster. Please discuss directly with me if considering this so we can advise accordingly.
Thank you everyone. Stay safe and sane and I hope to see you in person sooner rather than later.
Many thanks. x
