PANDEMIC Shutdown Notice for Dance Obsessions
In these times of crisis, we are hopeful that we gain strength in community bond, and that our efforts create happiness through the joy of dancing, to bring positivity and delight to your child and your family.
We would like to thank our dance families and all of our staff for your continued aspiration and love for dancing. Now more than ever, we appreciate your patience and support during these trying times, especially having to watch our colleagues close their doors permanently.

Recital Performance 2020 status projection: Fall 2020
Current Season 2020 will continue on Zoom through June 13th, when our last recital was supposed to be.
Afterwards, this season will go on hiatus and we will have some really great options for Summer Dance Sessions that will include tuition discount incentives & relief, along with some incredible Master Guests lined up!
September 2020 will pick back up where we stopped… for a D.O. Over! Mr. Jim, Miss Kim & Miss Jen have been brainstorming super creative options for our live performance Recital in the Fall — as opposed to holding a Zoom recital right now.
June’s Recital performance is on hold, until we can safely gather again.
We strongly feel that supporting the value and energy that goes into a live performance is what is magical about a dance recital.
D.O.’s kids, faculty & families should have this to look forward to, so we have some brilliant ideas and solutions planned for putting on 2020’s Annual Recital in the Fall Season of 2020 (shooting for Oct./Nov. 2020, prior to 2021 new year).
D.O. Spirit Week! Monday, June 8th – Saturday, June 13th
– Wear your D.O. apparel or Purple & Teal colors to Zoom Classes this week
– Post a pic on your social media & tag D.O. on Facebook & IG @dance_obsessions1 • #DOkeepdancing
2020’s Graduating Seniors
Look out for senior specialties from Katie Donaghy & Sara June D.O.’s 2020 Quarantine Graduates!
Deposits & balances that have been paid to Dance Obsessions for your dancers recital costume(s), were being processed before Quarantine. Deposits have been made to costume companies for D.O. recital costumes.
Because of the various locations across the nation, Costume Companies are slowly beginning to open, but some are still closed. We are in the process of checking the status of each company that we order from.
Faculty’s Creative Initiative
We couldn’t be more proud of Dance Obsession’s entire Faculty for swiftly pulling together to integrate their teaching methods with interactive online Zoom Rooms (available for all classes). Teachers & Choreographers are still working together to research and brainstorm great ideas to keep classes engaging, including: interactive games, dance parties, mini history sessions, watching clips from ballets & musicals, creative movement with our camera lenses & home items, etc.!
Opening Number Recital: “Welcome to the Moulin Rouge”
We are offering an extension on this given D.O.’s annual recital is pushed to the Fall of 2020!
Teachers are so happy to see the number of dancers who submitted their own videos (improv or self choreographed combos) from the Opening Routine music! “Welcome to the Moulin Rouge”
— Video submissions are extended thru end of July for dancers (Progressions/Combo dancers & Mini level thru Advanced) to send to DOtheDance5678@gmail.com before we schedule posting choreography & content for the Recital Opening Number. Dancers who previously offered submission videos aren’t required to send any additional.
— Faculty will be teaching small sections of Opening Number Recital Routine in select Zoom classes throughout the Summer Sessions. Additionally, pre-recorded choreography for this routine
We’ve been regularly posting to our Social Media!
