Note to our students & families

 We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our community by following the guidelines provided by Yolo County and the CDC. We understand that these guidelines are rapidly changing and we may need to modify our programs to remain in compliance.

 

We will continue to host our classes virtually until we are approved to re-open our studio. Once we are permitted to host students in our studio for in person classes, selected classes will be available for all virtual participation or a hybrid schedule.  In the hybrid schedule, students attend class in person every other week at TADA and participate virtually on the weeks they are not meeting in person. For those who prefer full virtual participation, livestreaming of in person classes will be an option.

 

New safety measures for in person classes will include:

  • Temperature checks upon arrival
  • Face masks required
  • Participants spaced at least 6 feet apart
  • Regular sanitation of facility and classrooms
  • Only registered students permitted to enter TADA
  • New student drop off and pick up flow to accommodate social distancing requirements

From the Director,

And now the time has come again to show the Bard our stuff,

The  words and words and words we speak are his unless we bluff.

A danish prince, a king and queen , a maid who seems confused,

A play within a play is shown, the plot has been reused.

“To be or not to be” I hear are words we all know well.

Alas, our prince  must stand alone onstage where he must dwell.

The swords will fly, the poison strong as things come to an end,

And who is left to tell the tale but Hamlet’s trusted friend.
