It has been a most unusual and difficult year but here at AFDA we know the "show must go on!".

  • We were able to Zoom over 405 hours of classes during April & May.
  • We worked through 3 "in-studio" rehearsals .
  • *We held 6 mini Recitals in studio while our studio parents watched on an outdoor screen.

It was nothing like our usual lights, stage and action recitals but it was special!

In the meantime we have marked off our studios for spacial distancing, we have extra cleaning systems in place and our students came back in the studio during June for our Technique Day Camps. It was so good to see everyone again and to the kids were thrilled to be back in the studio.

As we move forward and get as close to "normal" as we can we have some AMAZING summer activities in July and we are so excited for the kids!

Check out our Summer Classes page for more information.

And for 2020-2021....our new schedule will be live in 2 weeks.
