Term Letter Jan 2021

Term Letter

Dear Parents and Students,

Thank you for continuing to be part of our DCK community!

Physical Classes & Online possibilities January 2021:

Following the government directive that schools will open in January 2021, DCK expects many more students interested in physical classes. To open up more physical class spaces we will not be offering ZOOM-ONLY classes this coming term. However, if your child cannot attend the class of their choice physically, the student will be allowed to join the class through ZOOM and the teachers and assistant teachers will make sure to engage both the students in the studio as well as the students at home.

To sign up to attend classes through ZOOM please select the classes in the 3rd section of the registration form: Classes Zoom-Attendance. This will help us to know how many people will attend physically and how many through ZOOM, so that we can keep the class sizes under control. Due to safety reasons, for Gymnastics we will hold (at least) one specific ZOOM class per week and the regular physical Gymnastics classes cannot be joined through ZOOM. We will also have one Pre-School Zoom-Only class a week.

If a class is only offered once in the studio of your choice, you can still attend a second class through ZOOM or try to come to another studio for your second class.

Registration form: https://forms.gle/dfLHpvNeqs12rR4d8

Covid-19 precautions:

In the big studios there will be no more than ten students and not more than seven students will be allowed in the small studios. There is a list of protocols to be followed by all persons entering the studio which will include temperature checks, mask wearing, social distance spaces in the studio, etc. You will receive this document through email once you have signed up.

Limited space available:

Due to the measures in place, space is really limited. As classes fill up we will try our best to add more classes to the schedules. Please note that we will work with a first come-first-served system and to avoid disappointments we recommend to register now for your January classes!

Help DCK to get through this Pandemic!

Thanks to your continued support and the commitment and hard work of the whole DCK team we have been able to keep running classes for our students. However, the future of DCK is not at all guaranteed. Even though we have hugely reduced expenditure we are very far from breaking even, and it is quite possible that we will not make it another term with help.

How can you help?

  • Register now and make payment early for the January term. We are desperately trying to pay our staff for December before the holidays and won’t make it unless many of our parents pay in advance.
  • Share our registration form and schedules with friends and family, talk to them and keep reminding them of the fun you can have at DCK and the world-class training you can get here!
  • If you are able to donate anything, however big or small, it will go a long way in keeping Dance Centre Kenya from having to close its studios. Feel free to use our Mpesa/account details for this.
  • Share any fundraising ideas with us or organize a fundraiser yourself!
