Volume 12 2021-2022 Season

A student in the community has tested positive for COVID. Any students that aren't fully vaccinated have been notified and they will not be able to attend class until we verify a safe date of return. All students that are vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine unless they are experiencing any unusual symptoms (ie.stomach ache, headache , fever) as far as we understand the regulations at this time. We are asking all coming in this evening to take a quick temp check. If you are having any symptoms, please stay home and consider getting tested. 

Thank you
Dear company members and families,

There has been a change in my schedule this year and I will be working limited hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I will be working often at the studio or from home on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays prior to teaching. I will be far more responsive on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays to any questions or concerns. If you have an immediate concern on a Tuesday or Thursday you can reach out to Kim P. or Alicia.

Thank you for your understanding,


A note for all company members: If you are going to be late for class or are going to be absent, please call the studio or send an email to Kim P. and Daveda. It is important that we know when we shouldn't be expecting you so that we aren't trying to find where you are and can inform our faculty.

Mask Policy:

Dear NHAPA families,

The health and safety of our faculty/staff, students and their families remain a top priority for us as we open our new season. We are committed to delivering an in-person dance education again throughout the year and will continue to take the appropriate measures to make every effort to achieve that goal. We have been monitoring the rising local transmission rates of COVID-19 and Rockingham County has had a High level of transmission for the last several weeks. We will be instituting a mask mandate for all students 5 and up, faculty and staff regardless of vaccination status. This is also consistent with the local public schools in our region. We will be re-evaluating this protocol frequently and will communicate any changes. We appreciate your understanding, cooperation and continued commitment to our school.

Looking forward to welcoming everyone back next week-the start of our 65th Season!
