OUR PROMISE TO YOU
Please read the Covid19 section under "more" on our website. We will treat you the same way we would like to be treated. While we anticipate hosting IN-PERSON, SOCIALLY-DISTANCED classes (outdoors and/or indoors), if the State of NJ requires us to halt in-person classes, we promise to continue instruction via Zoom at regularly scheduled class times. We will not give up. Attendance is still expected, as it is the only way students can progress with choreography and/or other performance information. We are making a commitment to you, therefore, by enrolling in classes, you are making a commitment to yourself/student, the other members of your class(es) and Performing Arts 5678. Refunds will not be given unless Performing Arts 5678 cannot continue instruction either in-person or virtually. (In the event that instructors have Technical Difficulties/Power Outage/Sickness, makeup classes will be scheduled.)
OUTDOOR WEATHER/TEMPERATURE POLICY
In coordination with the Berkeley Heights School District, outdoor classes will take place (if NJ stipulates outdoor classes are okay, but prevent indoor classes). If the temperature is 28 degrees or above, classes can take place outdoors IF the State of NJ requires this. If the weather report anticipates 27 degrees or colder, class will be held indoors or via Zoom if NJ does not allow indoor classes. If it is 28 degrees or above, and it is raining and/or snowing, class will be held indoors or via Zoom if NJ does not allow indoor classes. If it is 28 degrees or above, and we are not allowed to have indoor classes, outdoor classes can be held unless it is raining/snowing. Please dress appropriately. Use common sense when dressing for outdoors when the outdoor temperature gets cooler.
If classes have to be cancelled due to weather, make-up classes will be scheduled, based upon the progress of the class with their performance material. If a class is in "good shape", a make-up class may not be needed. You will be notified via email when classes are cancelled due to weather, as well as of any make-up information.
The performances for Dance, Acting, and Musical Theatre Classes aim to be held Mid-May. Tickets will be priced based on the indoor/outdoor venue cost*, and must be purchased for all audience members. An indoor performance space will be reserved. If outdoor options are required by New Jersey, we will adapt accordingly. Worst case scenario, classes will perform outdoors, on an individual class basis, adhering to NJ guidelines. Zoom performances are a last resort. We have no intentions to cancel. We will do whatever it takes! As the saying goes, "The show must go on!" *Estimated cost of tickets average $20/ticket, possibly less, based on venue.
CLASS SIZE, ENROLLMENT, & SCHEDULE
During the 2020-2021 Season, to ensure Social Distancing, Class size is limited to seven (7) students for Dance Classes, and eight (8) students for Acting Classes. Musical Theatre Classes will have no more than eight (8) students. Classes may be added or combined, based on enrollment. You will be notified asap if we must adjust the schedule. Every effort will be made to accommodate class-style selections and scheduling. If a class does not meet minimum enrollment and/or has to be rescheduled and you cannot attend the alternate class, you will be given a full refund of any funds paid for that canceled/rescheduled class.
