COVID-19 Precautions

While London remains under the province wide stay-at-home order, there will be no ‘in person’ dance classes at NLDC until May 20th. Our wonderful teaching faculty will continue to come to work from the studio to teach their scheduled classes at their regular times via our virtual classroom on Zoom. This means that all registered students will continue to take their classes remotely until it is safe to welcome everyone back to the studio in person. We will update all our dance families again as soon as we have received the news that in person lessons can resume.

Virtual Parent Viewing Week #2

Since we have had to revert to our virtual studio for classes for the duration of the provincial stay-at-home order, we have rescheduled our final Virtual Parent Viewing week of the season as a grand finale to our term, for the last week of classes, June 6-12. Please update your calendar.

Young Company Performance

The Young Company of NLDC will be presenting in the London Dance Festival’s 2021 Virtual Spring Showcase this Saturday, April 24th at 6 pm via Vimeo here: http://londondancefestival.ca/virtual-spring-showcase-variation. Our piece was created almost entirely during the first shutdown period, and the dancers came together for one final rehearsal in the studio with Ms. Hannah Elias. The piece was created through written and movement-based improvisational scores and filmed both onsite at the studio as well as in the dancers’ homes. This piece explores the feelings of isolation that surrounds us during these difficult times, specifically focusing on the real-life experiences and emotions of these young dancers during lockdown. Tickets are pay-what-you-can and donations of any amount can be made by etransfer to support the London Dance Festival at: londondancefestival@gmail.com.
