While London remains under the provincewide Stay-at-Home order, there will be no ‘in person’ dance classes at NLDC until at least June 2nd. 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.
We aren’t letting the extension of the stay-at-home order get us down! We have 4 WEEKS OF FUN planned to finish off the dance term. Please remember to wear something you/your child can still SAFELY dance when wearing something theme-related. Our final Virtual Parent Viewing week of the season will mark the end of our academic term, the last week of classes, June 6-12.

📣 Shout out our students who keep showing up under these challenging conditions. We see you 💜
As always, we thank you for trusting us with your family’s dance education. We know you have other choices, and we are glad you’re with us. Your support throughout this challenging season has meant the world to all of us.
We are finalizing all student placements for the 2021-2022 season over the next week, and you will start to see this information in your parent portal as we work our way through the alphabet. As soon as that task has been completed, we will be emailing out our Fall 2021 schedule to all active students! We’re so excited to share it with you early, in hopes that you will continue to keep us in your family’s plans next season.
