Last Update: April 7th, 2020
Directors Joel & Lori are heartbroken over the events that have transpired over the past month in our country. Our hearts go out to everyone in the dance industry right now during this complicated and difficult time. No one anticipated or planned for such a huge blow to all of our businesses. We have nothing but compassion for everyone involved. This situation is forever changing, hour to hour, and we’ve been sitting on the edge of our seat with no sleep for the past week, as I’m sure all of you have.
As some of you may know, Joel & his wife also own a dance studio where his co-director and mother-in-law, Lori, has managed for the past 11 years. So we are experiencing this situation from both ends and understand whole-heartedly the challenges we are facing together in the dance industry.
We have spent countless time putting our heads together with over 30 other competition owners across the industry. We participate in all State of the Industry calls with More Than Just Great Dancing’s Misty Lown to discuss ways to move forward in unity. A lot of our peers are getting creative, given the circumstances, and doing some virtual programs. We believe this works great for studio classes, and we encourage you to keep these dancers active. However, we’re not going to be able to bust through the curtains of your living room, put some neon blinky shades on your dancer, give them a glow stick and have an awesome dance party before handing out our beautiful new medals for all of their hard work. That simply breaks our heart and we don’t want to minimize the TTB experience to a digital one. It is our mission to get these dancers back on stage!
We are determined to survive this blow and continue to exist as the TTB you’ve come to love, so we are hopeful we can all work together on this and #SaveTheSeason!
