VIRTUAL AND IN-PERSON STUDY

Hybrid Training

Hybrid Dance Training Program

FALL 2020

As we move into Phase 2.5 of reopening (which allows in-studio classes) we're beginning our Hybrid Training Program, which offers private and semi-private virtual and/or in-person classes with limited spots for those looking to get back to the studio. Strict guidelines and safety procedures will be followed during in-studio classes. Before registering for an in-studio class, please visit our COVID-19 page and familiarize yourself with these guidelines and protocols. 

Fall 2020 classes run 10/3/2020 - 12/19/2020. 

 

Please review our COVID-19 protocols prior to attending an in-studio class. Masks are mandatory for all in-studio classes.

 

Virtual classes are taught via Zoom; once registered, you will be able to access your class' individual Zoom link through your account in JackRabbit, our class registration system. 

Children's Division Hybrid Classes

 

Children’s Division classes, which include Pre-Primary through Primary Level 3 and Kid Aerial Exploration, have an open enrollment policy.

Student Division Hybrid Classes

 

All Student Division classes are taught with recognized methods designed to prepare our students for success in the performing arts. Placement in all Student Division classes is assessed by DSBPA faculty either during a class (for current students) or by private class assessment for new students that enroll after the first week of the academic year has passed.

 

We have many students who desire careers in other areas, and we believe that whatever field or endeavor students seek, it’s the preparedness, self-respect, respect for others, focus, open-mindedness, perseverance and sense of humor that come from successful training that are the keystones of all successful careers.

ALL Student Division classes with an in-studio option will be live-streamed for students wishing to remain at home.
