Academy: Many Courses continue Online

World Music & Dance Academy
14 April 2020

Due to the measures concerning the coronavirus, we are currently forced to suspend the physical dance and music lessons of the academy. Of course, this does not mean that the third cycle cannot start. Teachers have done their best to provide an alternative form of teaching. Unfortunately this is not possible for every lesson. Below is an overview of the lessons that will start after the Easter holidays (in the week of 20 April 2020) with an online offer:

Online courses

The third cycle starts with online lessons. Once we are able to organise physical lessons again, we switch to the “normal teaching form”. The online lessons start after the Easter holidays (in the week of 20 April 2020). Please register before the end of the holidays via the website. In this way, the teacher has a view on the number of pupils who will follow the third cycle and the teacher can organize himself/herself.

Physical courses (restart as soon as allowed)

Some courses are unable to offer an online alternative. For this reason, these courses can only restart when they are permitted again. Students will then be able to register for the remaining courses.

The teachers will keep you informed of the progress of the new measures and any changes. The classes of Frissefolk (folk dance), Piet Maris (accordion ensemble) and Dante & Monica Dominguez (tango dance) are not mentioned above. They will contact their students directly.

All of these cancellations have a significant emotional and financial impact on teachers who are faced with numerous concert postponements and the impossibility of giving classes physically. This is why we are making a warm appeal for solidarity and invite you not to ask for a refund of the cancelled courses, in order to be able to partially compensate for the costs already incurred and the loss of current and future income. Of course, we will do our best to find solutions so that a minimum number of courses are cancelled.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about the courses. We wish you to stay healthy and take care of each other.

Thank you for your understanding!
