ADT & the "Four Week Reset"

Dear Parents and Dancers of the ADT family,

The safety of our students and families is of the utmost priority for us. Due to the rapid increases in the number of Covid-19 cases in our community and the “Four Week Reset” issued by the Municipality of Anchorage on Friday, ADT staff in consultation with the Board of Directors, decided to take the following steps to protect the health and safety of our students and staff:

  • Summer Intensive originally scheduled to begin this Monday has been canceled. We are looking into having Winter Intensives and will make an announcement in coming days/weeks. Families have an option to request a refund or apply the cost of the Intensives as credit towards class tuition.

  • Classes will start on August 17 as scheduled; however, all classes will be online until September 7th. ADT will work to transition to in-person classes once the ‘hunker down’ order is lifted.

  • In order to observe the ‘hunker down’ and minimize contact, ADT will not be holding any in-person classes or private lessons at this time.

We will evaluate the situation on a weekly basis and will inform you of any changes to operations. We are actively developing options for our students to stay engaged and maintain fitness, including outside classes with weather permitting, exciting guest speakers, and more. Over the summer we have invested in updating our online classes capabilities for a more effective learning experience as well. Please stay tuned for more information.

In the meantime, please contact Sara at our front desk, (907) 277-9591 to discuss payment or refund options.  If you have larger questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Board President, Jonathan White,; Executive Director, Andrei Chakine; Director of Development, Kristen Vierthaler; and, Artistic Director, Niki Maple

We appreciate you, our ADT family, for your continued support of our school, teachers, and staff during these challenging times. We look forward to weathering this storm so that we may dance together again soon.
