Dear Jensen Performing Arts Families,

In response to the recent information from the Santa Clara County Health Department and the Milpitas Unified School District concerning Covid-19 (coronavirus) we will be moving to offering our classes as an online dance experience.  We are working through the details as quickly as possible.  

As of Monday, March 16 Through Sunday, March 22 we will be closed, moving our already scheduled Spring Break.  Our first online classes will begin Monday March 23rd.  As we live in such a tech savvy community, we think this will prove to be an exciting and fun experience for all our dancers!  We are planning to continue our choreography for recital, continue with technique and maintaining the health and fitness of our students. We will also ensure that our dancers and parents are able to communicate to their instructor as needed on a weekly basis. We feel that working to maintain normalcy in the lives of our dancers, during this difficult time, is of utmost importance.  

We expect to be using this online dance mode as Milpitas schools remain closed.  Our efforts now will allow us to return to” in person dancing” fully prepared to continue our dance year without skipping a beat! We are still planning to  keep our annual recital on the same schedule, June 19th and June 20th. 

Please keep checking for updates and directions for online dancing to be emailed in a few days.  We hope everyone will join us as we travel safely through this new normal! 

Please know that as a company, we will continue to support our teachers and staff in every way we can through this very difficult time and look forward to a full return to their positions as soon as possible.

We thank you for your understanding and support.  Please let us know if you have any questions or comments in the coming days and weeks.

More information to come!

Please stay safe and healthy,

Miss Patty and Staff
