UPDATE - 1ST JUNE 2020
Firstly, a warm welcome to you all.
We hope that you are staying safe, healthy and strong at this challenging time.
As you will be well aware, this has been a difficult time in many ways and my first point is to applaud our students, who have jumped into our fantastic online classes with the focus, enthusiasm and dedication that we would expect of a Dancebox student, and who have continued to flourish under the watchful eye of our dedicated faculty.
I would also like to personally thank all of our teachers, tutors and mentors who have worked tirelessly to provide exceptional online content, classes and support for all of our students, and who are also working hard to support our graduating students into agent representation and employment. Particular thanks are due to Programmes Manager, Kat Bates, who has coordinated the grading process and is working closely with our qualification providers and academic partners to ensure that every student achieves the recognition they deserve in their qualifications.
The administrative team are also working hard to ensure that our returning students and our amazing 2020 intake will have an exceptional start to their training in September. We are carefully following the guidance and recommendations from the government and are developing detailed plans which will enable us to provide the safest environment possible for continued training when we return in September.
We are obviously very sad that we are not able to showcase the hard work and talent which we have nurtured this year and our hearts go out to each and every one of our graduating students, who have missed out on memorable experiences and are entering the industry at such a challenging time. Although many have already had success in gaining representation and employment, I want them to know that we are here to support them in this difficult transition and we look forward to the day when we can celebrate their exceptional achievements!
Lastly, my sincere thanks to everyone; students, incoming students, potential students, parents and staff for their continued enthusiasm, dedication and positivity at this difficult time. I couldn't be more proud of the Dancebox team and can't wait to see everyone back in the studio soon.
Be safe, be sensible, work hard and we'll see you soon!
