Dear dancers, teachers, studio directors and parents,

There is so much power in what we do as a dance community.

Studios have pivoted to online platforms in the blink of an eye, maintaining as much of a rhythm and connection for their dance family as possible. Teachers and directors are working tirelessly to bring dancers quality content and keep spirits high. Trust me, teaching classes online is much harder than any of us expected, both physically and mentally. Thank you.

Dancers show up to online classes dressed and ready for anything we throw at them. They are making space to dance wherever they can find it - kitchens, bedrooms, backyards and basements (I've even seen the occasional hallway). Dancers are working hard, investing, and gobbling up everything teachers give them. Thank you.

Parents are paying their tuition, supporting their studio through what will be the hardest thing any of us have every done. Studios still have overhead, rent and utilities doesn't go away, staff is crucial, and the future of our community is nothing without your support. Thank you.

Local competition directors are trying their hardest to find the best solutions to these massive events that we spend all year preparing for. We love our dance community, we want to see you perform and show off your work and passion. We do this because we love dance as much as you. 

Theater's are dark throughout the world, and we mourn for it. But the dance community is filled with passionate people who shine through the darkest of times. I see joy every time a young dancer is pictured participating in online classes, when silly dance videos go viral and the country shows us just how cool it is, when teachers and directors are collaborating to create outstanding online content. We succeed together.

We will see you on the other side of this, better than ever!

Stay safe, wash your hands, and we'll see you soon.
