As we prepare to end the 2019-2020 dance season, we wanted to let our dance families be among the first to know that after eight very happy years at Premier Dance Studio, Tara and Stacey will be retiring this spring.
Our children have had such an amazing experience with dance, and we are so grateful that we could participate in that experience with them. Our children are all grown up now and planning college majors, graduations, weddings, and careers. Just as we followed them in their love of dance, we now feel called to follow them into the next phases of their lives.
We are currently reaching out to several parties whom we believe would love running the studio as much as we do. It is important to us to know that the studio will remain in good hands so that your children can continue pursuing their love of dance.
Thank you. Thank you for your continued support over the years, for allowing us to share our love of dance with your family, and for allowing us to know and care for your beautiful dancers. We have absolutely loved our time in the studio and will miss our dance families.
As we look forward to our final performance as Premier Dance Company, we are saddened to think how our last year was altered by COVID-19. While we have recognized for a few months now that it was time to retire, it just wasn't supposed to end this way! We thank you for the kindness and patience you showed during the difficult decisions that had to be made this spring for the safety of our dancers--we just really can't thank you enough for the support you showed us during this time.
Please know that we will make you aware of our progress in finding new owners for your studio. We hope that you will support them and continue to surround your children with the love of dance. Best wishes to you and your family as we wind up this crazy season and look toward a warmer, safer summer!
Dear Dance Families,
We have been closely monitoring the process of re-opening our community and have determined that, in the interest of the health and safety of our dancers, some adjustments need to be made to our earlier plans for reopening the studio.
Westminster College will not be opening Champ Auditorium for our Spring Show, nor would social distancing guidelines allow us to bring all our families and their guests together to celebrate our dancers there. Therefore, we have been forced to consider an alternate means of showcasing our dancers and the work they have done this year.
In addition, as we began to fine tune the details of maintaining appropriate social distancing and other safety precautions, it became clear that we would need to institute some new policies and time frames for our final events; these schedule changes and policies are outlined below for your convenience.
We will resume classes for ONE week, the week of June 9-11 and hold a final performance scheduled by class for Saturday, June 13 at an outdoor venue to be confirmed at a later time.
