Update: March 23, 2020
Dear Dance Families,
Thank you for all the kindness, support, and understanding we’ve received. Speaking with many of you on the phone over the past several days has been a comfort, especially since we all want the same thing, a return to normalcy for our kids.
In order to comply with CDC guidelines and in accordance with local and federal restrictions, we have postponed all events scheduled for March. Any studio who was registered for a March show will be contacted by Mr. Dan to go over options. In many cases we have already booked alternative dates for later in the season.
As we approach the April dates, we anticipate we may need to postpone additional events, particularly those in the first few weeks. In those instances, we will email the studios directly to notify them and to provide more information if available.
As of today, we are keeping the May dates as listed in hopes that we will be able to run them as scheduled. Please understand that circumstances may change, and if needed, we will adjust so that we continue to comply with state and federal agency guidelines.
The following dates have been rescheduled:
Raleigh, NC - May 1-2, 2020 @ Washington Duke Inn
Portland, ME (North Berwick) - May 22 - 24 (Memorial Weekend) @ Noble High School
Manahawkin, NJ - May 29 - 31, 2020 @ Stafford Township Arts Center
Harrisburg, PA - May 29 - 31, 2020 @ Scottish Rite Cultural Center
We will post updates to our website and social media as they become available.
Studios are being contacted directly with more information about re-booking options and in many cases by Mr. Dan personally. We appreciate your patience. If you need to leave a message, or send an email, please understand it may take longer than usual to respond. For now, we request contacts from studio owners and teachers only at this time. We love our dance parents and to best serve you we need to prioritize the most up to date information to the studios. We strongly encourage that you call between the hours of 10:00 am and 5:00 pm daily, Monday through Friday. If you don't reach us please leave a message or email us directly.
Thank you for all your understanding and support during this exceptional time. We encourage all the stay safe.
Yours in Dance,
Mr. Dan and the DI Family
Update: March 12, 2020
Thank you for choosing Dancers Inc. during this 2020 competition season.
We wanted to take a moment to reassure you that we are working diligently to ensure the safety of our participants and are closely monitoring the CDC and World Health Organization recommendations.
Currently, we are working closely with our venues and evaluating each of our competitions on a case-by-case basis and will update you all as more details become available.
At this time, given the recent announcement by the Maine Government that restricts all gatherings to less than 100 people, we are postponing the Portland Regional Competition scheduled for this weekend, March 13-15, 2020, at Noble High School in North Berwick, Maine. Studio Directors, please be on the look-out for an email that contains further information.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the office. Please note, we are experiencing a large call and email volume at this time, and our responses may be slightly delayed.
We look forward to seeing you all soon!
Yours in Dance,
March 9, 2020
We would like to take this opportunity to address the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and assure you that the safety and well being of our attendees remains of the utmost importance. We have been closely monitoring the fluid situation and have been in constant contact with our Event Venues. We have also been regularly reviewing both CDC and World Health Organization guidelines and recommendations. We encourage everyone to review the current recommended guidelines as provided by the above organizations:
Urge anyone who is sick to not attend.
Encourage those who are at high risk for serious illness not attend. People at higher risk of severe illness include older adults and those with chronic medical conditions.
Encourage attendees to follow the increased recommended hygiene routine, such as:
Washing their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
If soap and water are not available, alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used in a pinch.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue - if available - or into their elbow.
Clean surfaces with standard cleaners.
At this point, all of our venues are operating as usual with additional precautions. We will continue to monitor this understandably stressful situation and will follow recommended guidelines. If you are unable to attend an event for the remainder of the 2020 Sweet Sixteen Season Tour, please notify us in advance. We can be reached via phone at 732-685-8182.
Thank you for your long term support and we look forward to seeing you at one of our tour cities.
