COVID-19 UPDATE:

(posted Thursday, March 26)

Dear Dancenter family….
In light of the recommendation of the health department, Government agencies, and our public schools, we have temporarily suspended our classes till hopefully April 15th.  However our dance business is not closed. This week is our designated spring break and we will start our online classes next week.  We will continue to give you some fun videos, challenges and fun activities this week on our Facebook page.  This way our dancers can continue home dancing and continue to receive the wonderful benefits that our dance classes provide.  More than ever our kids need exercise and physical activity.  This is the key to staying healthy and happy.

 We are following the Alachua County School System as of now and hope to be back in the studio April 15th.  In the event of future possible closures our online presence will be necessary to move forward.  As far as we know our recital dates remain the same- June 5th and 6th.  In the event of anything changing we will postpone and let you know further details as they are determined.

Our Dancenter staff has been working very hard this past week.  We will start some online classes next week.  You will be given a password by email to access classes, warm ups, ballet barres, technique exercises and stretching for you and your parents…but most important you will receive weekly choreography for all your recital dances from each of your teachers.  When we return to the classroom we will offer more make up classes for those you have missed.  If you have not received a phone call to verify your email please call us at (352) 371-0761 so that you will be able to receive your access code.

The Dancenter will continue to try to provide their teachers and staff with normal pay during this time in an effort to support our local community, as well as the health and welfare of our staff.  These are vital times for all of us and your continued support will help us to get through this temporary crisis, and be able to continue and serve our community in the future. We have had a very busy week learning new things and working on creative ways to keep us all happy and healthy and dancing.

If you have any questions you may call 371-0761- Debbie is on the phone and she will be able to help you…. both Debbie and I will try to answer any questions that you might have.  In the meantime, let’s all do our part to stay healthy and be safe- we look forward to seeing all of you again and we look forward to being able to help and serve our community as the Dancenter and the Danscompany has always vowed to do.  Our staff looks forward to seeing you coming back dancing stronger than ever.  So stay tune and stay dancing… Love to all of you… Fondly, Nina Cameron
