Dance Department Calendar of Events: 2020-2021

 

Any event or activity may be cancelled, rescheduled, OR presented in an online format somehow.  This is possible because of the unknowns related to the coronavirus, restrictions in place because of this virus, or whether or not we are on campus in school.

McG will inform dancers of changes ASAP.

Please call McG with questions (802) 535-3636 or (802) 535-9574

 

School Tours for more advanced dance classes will not occur as field trips to the local schools this year.  We will be working with the local schools to find collaborative ways via dance pal (pen pal) or online format for sharing work.  More information will be presented to students and families at the beginning of the school year and each quarter of the year with curriculum updates.

 

After School Dance Program dates with Kingdom East and Dance Company have been included in the calendar of events (just in case restrictions are lifted and there are effective treatment and vaccines in place allowing things to return more to normal later in the year)…however, I am also working with the Kingdom East ASP Director to find alternate/remote ways of having the dance experience with the ASP students rather than bring students to our campus.  Again, more information will be shared at the beginning of the school year and as the year progresses.

 

Half Time Football information is included in the calendar below but again I am working with Mr. Berry to see if these events will occur or not.  I will keep students and families informed as time nears and information is available.

 

Guest Artists will not come teach at LI this year due to risks associated with the coronavirus. 

 

Winter & Spring Recitals and The Student Dance Showcase will not occur publicly in the Auditorium as have been done in the past.  Instead, classes will have choreography assignments as solos or in small groups to create that will be shared via video on a platform chosen by the school (youtube channel, the school website, etc.) for viewing by the recital date as posted in the calendar.

 

KCP Dance Performances are still being scheduled and again due to coronavirus may not occur.  So as they are confirmed, I will add them to the calendar dates below and keep you informed closer to dates of events.

Dancers/Parents/Guardians,

If there is a problem with you/your dancer attending an event/rehearsal listed on this calendar, you must get documentation (written note via email or hand delivered letter) to me prior to the event.

See the course contract for reasoning, how events count towards participation, and grading since this is a performing art and performance work is a required standard of learning. Attendance is taken at all events.

Thank you and happy dancing/happy dance viewing!
