    Dear Soo Dance Families,

The Tutu Tickets that have already been purchased and all previously paid event costs will go toward this winter Show on December 19th event.

    If you do not want to join in the December event you can use event credit back on your account to use the credit for the Fall 2020 tuition.

    Our fall class starts in August 3rd at Blackhawk location.

    Soo Dance will offer both VIRTUAL classes and in-studio / Out-door classes. 

    Blackhawk plaza is offering for us to use the Rotunda/Lobby to hold Soo dance classes in order to maintain the 6’ distance out door.  You can see where the Rotunda is in Blackhawk plaza in the attachment below.

    Summer 20 (June1st – July 25th)

    Hello Soo Dance Family!

    Now that we’re in the stages of phasing out the shelter-in-place order, we’ve come up with a plan for our Summer 2020 term. The schedule is live and available on Studio Director. Please review the information below, and feel free to contact us with any further questions.

    Soo Dance will offer both VIRTUAL classes and in-studio classes. Virtual and in-studio tuition will be the same price.

    Make sure to sign up soon as possible, due to limited number of in-studio student slots. There is a maximum number of 8 students per (in-studio) class.

    Some of the additional changes we’re making to ensure the safety of our students and faculty:

    • Classes will be held at our San Ramon location in Studio A where we have the ability to open windows for airflow throughout the class.
    • There will be 15 minute breaks between each scheduled class, to minimize the number of dancers in the studio
    • After each class, the floor and barres will wiped down during the break
    • Parents will not be permitted in the studio to watch class. On time drop-off and pick-up is imperative.
    • For Ballet classes, there will be one student per barre
    • Each dancer will be required to attend with their own mask, gloves, and their own filled reusable water bottle
    • Makeups will not be allowed for in-person classes. If a student misses a class, it can be made up through a virtual class

    Those who have exhibited symptoms consistent with COVID-19, or have family members that have contracted the illness, are ineligible for our in-studio program in order to maintain the safety of our students and faculty. If your dancer is ineligible, we welcome them to continue their dance education from the comfort of your home through our virtual classes!
