With the ever rising Covid-19 numbers that we are seeing in Okaloosa County, I have come to the sad determination that delaying the start date of our Summer Dance Session is in the best interest of the safety of our students and instructors. I have every hope that we will be able to see our students leaping back into the dance studio beginning August 3rd, but please understand that the circumstances surrounding the health and safety of our entire DSOTA family are of the utmost importance to me. Knowing that the circumstances that led to this decision are very fluid during this uncertain time, we will be updating you all periodically throughout the month of July to ensure we are able to keep you as informed as possible.

For now, we are offering parents two options:
1. You can hold your child’s spot in class and your payment will be credited to your account.
2. You can request a full refund by emailing your receipt of payment, along with your mailing address to DSOTA Director Keri Klaus.  Please know that if you choose to be refunded, your child will no longer have a guaranteed spot in class once we reopen.

If you have any follow up questions or need further clarification, please email me. I thank you for your understanding during this uncertain time and I look forward to the time we can all be together again safely.

- Keri Klaus, DSOTA Director
