Today is a great day! We wanted you to know before we announced it to the general public!
Today is the day that we launch our 34th season!
Things look a bit different and we have embraced them, adapted them and created a new website, protocols and systems that I believe will take us into the future with confidence. We have a plan to ensure a happy, healthy and safe environment, programs and children.
Thanks to our amazing staff, faculty and families who proved we could do hard things, we are resilient and finished our 2020 season strong together! Yes, we still have some things to complete, some training, exams, competition, & graduation celebrations we had hoped to have completed, and we will, but we are moving forward with our August Summer Intensive and Fall programs.
We have Safe Studio reopening guidelines and although things are still changing and being updated we are confidently launching our fall program with in-person classes with modifications if needed with updated Tech-enhanced studios.
Here’s a fun fact for you: In dance class, it is common etiquette for students to applaud after groups practice combinations or a student is asked to demonstrate. This show of appreciation is a class custom across the entire dance world! Dancers gain motivation by being able to watch and learn from each other. At Pegasus Studios, this classroom tradition of recognizing effort is part of our dance DNA!
Similarly, when a student achieves a goal—however big or small—we want to celebrate their success and encourage their classmates to do the same. A dancer’s goal might have been accomplishing that clean double pirouette in jazz class or earning their pointe shoes. Or it might have been achieving acceptance to a particular summer intensive, or being cast in a specific role in the school musical. We love to promote cheering them on!
