Summer is a special time for dance at HPSD but summer 2020 more special than most.
Never before has dancing in our studios presented such a monumental challenge but in this process, we are finding innovative ways to offer dance education while keeping the health and safety of our dancers and community a top priority.
While weekly regular session classes will take place virtually via Zoom, we will be offering hybrid studio and virtual classes to our workshop and Summer Intensive students. A limited number of dancers will participate in the studios - adhering to strict safety and physical distancing precautions - with more students piping in virtually on a live feed from their homes. This way we hope to ease the transition back into the studios, provide relief for dancers who have been unable to join us virtually, and keep as many of our students dancing as we can through the summer!
Dancing through a virtual medium has put some limitations on the kind of movement our dancers can do and some of these constraints will carry over to the studio as we dance with masks and physical distancing. But despite these restrictions, our instructors will be taking the opportunity to return to movement fundamentals and explore new ways to create around and beyond digital and distancing dance.
Our faculty and staff are not only committed to changing the way we move, we are working to ensure our virtual classes run smoothly and our studios are safe and clean. Take a look at our Virtual Classes Guide and COVID-19 Studio Guidelines for more details.
We are also offering special tuition options for students looking for a seriously immersive dance experience: our workshop packages offer great discounts for enrolling in multiple weeks of programming, so the more you dance, the more you save on tuition! (payment plans also available)
See below for our full class schedule and details on our workshops and summer intensive!
Registration for Summer Session 2 classes, workshops, and the summer intensive will re-open Saturday, June 27th! Space is limited, so be sure to enroll promptly!
