TRAINING IN 2020/21

We understand how frustrated dancers are right now, and how concerned their parents are, as well. Training from home has limitations, and even though there are a multitude of hybrid training options out there, there are valid concerns.  

  • How do you determine which program is best for your dancer?

  • How do you ensure they are progressing when there are a multitude of resources with no meaningful progression?

When it's time to return to in-person training, is your studio following safe protocols?

⁣⁣⁣
Everyone deserves a safe environment, whether it's virtual or in-person, to grow and develop.

As we adapt to the evolving conditions, we remain dedicated to providing a healthy and creative outlet for our dancers to continue their training during these challenging times.

 

Bayer Ballet Academy has been successfully providing virtual training since Shelter in Place, as well as safely operating in-studio summer programs since early June.

 

Moving forward we are building an outdoor space/classrooms so that the teachers may work with more than one stable group at a time.  This space is a wooden deck that will have a covering and fans for cooling and heaters for heat.  When the guidelines and mandates change to allow us to move in the studio - we will move in studio.  As such, if the guidelines/mandates change or air quality doesn't allow for outdoor instruction, we will move to virtual. We will also maintain a virtual-only option for those who prefer to stay home even when the government guidelines allow for in-person training.

 

VIRTUAL & HYBRID TRAINING OPTIONS

Our program is designed to adapt to the evolving conditions.  Whether we are dancing in-person or virtually, we are committed to delivering the highest quality education (Vaganova method) and access to world-renowned faculty and master teachers.

 

Together, we will rise stronger than before.
