Spring Break Dance Camp registration

Spring Break & Camp

A friendly reminder that we moved the dance school’s March Break to align with academic school’s April Spring Break, so the studio will NOT be running any regular classes from Saturday, April 10 to Sunday, April 18 inclusive. Regular classes resume Monday, April 19th .

Our Tangled-themed Spring Break Day Camp for children in JK to Grade 5 is filling up quickly! The Friday has only 1 spot left right now. Our dance camps are so much FUN! Children will take a variety of classes each day, including ballet, jazz, hip hop, creative movement, stretch & strength and more! We also have time allotted for crafts and games. Camp runs from 9 am – 4 pm each day. Drop off after 8:30 am, and pick up by 4:30 pm are included in the camp price of $44 per day. No half day camp available. Full days only, but you can select individual full days. Payment in full is due with registration. Dancers bring their own peanut-free snacks and lunch.

COVID-19 Precautions

While London remains in orange, which is the “restrict” level of the provincial COVID-19 response framework, we confirm that the following COVID-19 related precautions will continue to be followed at NLDC, and we commit to keeping you informed as guidelines change moving forward:

London is Covid Orange level
  • Our lobby and dancer’s waiting room are closed to ensure a minimum number of people are entering/exiting the building. Dancers will continue to be dropped off at the door, and our staff will guide students into the studio.
  • Please complete your Covid-19 screen form online in advance of arriving to the dance studio. It must be completed EVERY DAY that you/your dancer is coming into the facility. Here’s the link to bookmark or add to your home screen of your phone:
  • Wearing slip on shoes that are easy to remove and put on is helpful. Please put your dancer’s name on their shoes.
  • Line up no more than 5 minutes in advance of your class & please do not block the entrances or park in front of neighbouring businesses in the spots that are reserved for their customers.
  • Arrive on time to pick up children & be visible to our office staff from the door. Please do not wait in your cars as the dancers and staff cannot see you when the dancers exit the building.
  • Dancer’s will continue to be asked to sanitize their hands coming in and out of the facility.
  • EVERYONE MUST wear a mask to enter & exit the facility, and any time they are not in class dancing.
  • Dancer’s will continue to be physically distanced in our ‘dancing boxes’ in the studio.
  • Our enhanced cleaning routines will stay in place for the foreseeable future.

Young Company

The Young Company of NLDC finished a new piece last month with Ms. Hannah which will be presented in the London Dance Festival’s 2021 Virtual Spring Showcase. We will share more details on this soon. This piece was created almost entirely during the shutdown period, and the dancers came together for one final rehearsal in the studio.

As always, thank you for trusting us with your family’s dance education. We know you have other choices, and we’re glad you’re with us.
