ADT Transitioning to Online Classes November 16

Dear Families and Students, With the skyrocketing number of new cases and deaths in the city, the Governor’s recent emergency declaration, and with an understanding that safety of our students and staff is our top priority, we determined that it is time for ADT to transition to online classes.

Beginning Monday, November 16, all classes will move to our online format for the next 3 weeks. At the end of the 3rd week, we will reassess the situation for the remainder of December. With AK Holiday postponed, our official end date before the holiday break will be Saturday, December 12th.  

We ask that you make necessary preparations – set up a space for your dancer, test your Zoom equipment, etc. and let us know if there’s anything we can do to help. No private lessons or small group sessions will be meeting during this time. Staff will be in touch with YAGP families and students to discuss options with this project. It may take longer than usual for us to return your phone calls because our Front Desk Team will be transitioning to work from home. The best way to contact us will be via email: Sara Quinones, Office Manager - Sara Embler, Office Manager Assistant/Marketing Coordinator - As a member of the local community and an organization that is entrusted with your dancer’s success and safety, we feel it’s our responsibility to do for our students everything we can to keep them safe, while continuing to provide the highest quality of instruction possible. We recognize that Zoom classes are not the same as in-person classes. We want all of our families to know that we hope to return to in-person classes and projects as soon as we can. If there’s anything we can do to help your dancer during these challenging times, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us: Andrei Chakine, Executive Director Niki Maple, Artistic Director Sara Quinones, Office Manager Sincerely, Andrei Chakine, Interim Executive Director, & Niki Maple, Artistic Director Alaska Dance Theatre 550 E. 33rd Avenue Anchorage, AK 99503 907.277.9591
