Update 3/13/2020

Dear Students and Parents, 

News just in that Shrewsbury School System has closed for safety until March 20th.
Danceartists Ballet Academy is closed until March 29th.  

Currently, there are no known COVID-19 virus cases in Shrewsbury and closing of schools is precautionary.

I will send some ballet video clips via Email and Instagram for my students during the next 2 weeks.

The Hybrid Movement Company Weekend Workshop is rescheduled for May 29/30.

Hoping everyone stays healthy.

Kind regards,

Joanna Duncan

Director Danceartists Ballet Academy

Dear Parents,

As you all know, Gov. Baker has declared a state of emergency for the COVID-19 virus threat.  The World Health Organization officially declared the virus a pandemic on March 11, 2020.  Major sports events, concerts, colleges, schools are either closing or postponing events.  Danceartists is closely monitoring the situation.  For now, classes will continue as scheduled.  Danceartists decided to move the date of A Celebration of 100 Years of Royal Academy of Dance to June 25, 2020 for practical reasons before a state of emergency was declared.  So, at this time the event is still scheduled for the 25th of June.

Adult classes were scheduled to begin in March.  However, at this time there is no scheduled start date due to COVID-19.  We are accepting registrations and will start as soon as possible.

Danceartists Ballet Academy is committed to the health and safety of our students and families.  We will take all reasonable measures to ensure that we are in compliance with directives from local, state, and federal government agencies.  In circumstances where there is no guidance regarding COVID-19 we will act with caution and integrity.

Rather than send out lots of email, this webpage has been added to the site and will remain up for as long as necessary.  We expect updates to be frequent enough that email will become impractical.  Please check this webpage for updates.  Thank you for your patience and support.
