As we near the end of 2020, all we can say is...PHEW! What a year it's been. We hope you all enjoy the holiday season with your families, and that we can all enjoy a healthy and happy 2021. That said, the end of the year certainly does not mean the end of the pandemic (not quite!), so we thank you in advance for continuing to follow all COVID-related guidelines and communicate openly with us about any questions or concerns into the new year.

As long as we continue to work together and follow the rules, we can continue to dance. So let's ring in 2021 with that ever-positive CHIPPS Nation spirit we all know and love!

Happy Dancing Always, and Happy Holidays,
Nancy Chippendale

*Rain date: Sunday December 20th
*As you make your family's holiday plans, please remember your dancers MUST follow all state travel guidelines for quarantine and/or testing prior to returning to dance. Windham dancers must follow NH Guidelines.*

And as always...
  • *Remember your dancer's mask AND make sure it fits properly. Keep a spare one in the dance bag. Thank you!
  • Do not send your child to dance if anyone in your household has stayed out of school or work due to feeling under the weather - even if their symptoms aren't blatantly COVID-related.
  • Parents MUST wear a mask when at the studio - including in the parking lot. Help us keep our faculty and staff safe!
  • Late arrivals and early dismissals are not permitted. Our drop off and pick up procedures are organized to be as efficient as possible.
  • Masks with exhalation valves or vents may not be worn - they are not recommended by the CDC and are prohibited from our facilities.
