In-Studio Convention - (TBD... probably sometime in April or May)
Sparkler Lock-in! - (TBD sometime in May)
ODM has decided to schedule March's competition in "Studio Blocks." Each studio will get their own time to come in, perform all routines and then leave! There will be no Scholarship Auditions or Classes (more on that later), which means we will not be mingling with any other studios while we are there. It'll be no different than coming to class!
OTHER SAFETY MEASURES
They will be disinfecting the stage and dressing room areas in between each group and everyone must still wear a mask while they are in the building. Each of our students is allowed ONE spectator in the auditorium while we perform. Nobody from any other studio will be in there.
Families will want to book a hotel room for March 11th close to the Bridgewater Event Center in Powell, OH... 10561 Sawmill Pkwy, Powell, OH 43065.
Since we won't get to partake in convention classes in March, Ms. Janet and I have decided to organize and host our own convention right here at CCA! We'll be hiring four teachers who are working professionally in the industry to join us for a weekend probably in April. What's great about this is that it will give our students more individualized attention and we can all feel safer about having it in our own facility. This also means that Sparklers not traveling with us in March will be able to still join our in-studio convention!
