HEALTH AND WELLNESS

The health of our staff, students, and families has always been our highest priority. Studio 56 Dance & Little Learners Preschool follows the Safer Studio guidelines, which prioritize a hierarchy of safety and wellness measures.  As a reminder as we are going into regular cold and flu season, it is important that we continue our combined efforts to follow these guidelines.  Please continue to monitor your children and do not send them to class if they have a fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, etc.  Thank you so much for everyone’s enhanced awareness and efforts in keeping our dancers healthy. 

Sending a child with symptoms to class in a mask is not an acceptable solution. Please keep children home when they are sick.

PARENTS OF PRESCHOOL DANCERS

We love the month of October…This month our theme is “Itsy Bitsy Spider!”  We will be making an alphabet brew in our classes this month!  The last week of October we will be celebrating Halloween in class by wearing our costumes to dance!  We encourage you to get involved and have them practice their skills at home!  This month we are focusing on:  running, rolling our wrists, heel digs, grand battement, doughnuts and our scary faces!


October Stretch of the Month- Shoulders | Strength Challenge- Plank: We are so excited this year to have a “stretch of the month” and a “strength challenge” in our acro/tumbling classes! Encourage your child to work on these skills at home to help them improve even faster! Be more involved by printing off the at home practice tracker HERE.


CHRISTMAS CHARITY PROJECT: We are collecting PJ’s to donate to those in need of a comfy new pair of jammies this holiday.  Get your dancer involved by watching for PJ’s at a good price.  All the proceeds and PJ/books collected will be donated right here in Utah. More information to come!
