Grand Jete Studio of Dance Updates

Dear Parents & Students of our Grand Jete Family,

Firstly we want to say a heartfelt thank you for your support over the past days since announcing our decision to close our in person studio at this time. We have a responsibility to do our part in minimizing the impact of the Coronavirus throughout our community and the safety of our dance families are our number one priority.

While this will impact our classes inside the studio, we will continue to deliver the dance experience you know and love at GJD just in a slightly different way.

Now more than ever it's important for your child to have normalcy and routine. The last thing we all want is for our children to play video games and watch television shows and movies all day. We need them to be active, move, use their mind and still interact socially with their peers.

This is exactly what we'll be providing you with during the closure of our physical location.
Thanks to technology we will be opening our digital doors and will be providing you with an online dance experience for your dancer to keep them moving, learning, interacting with their friends and having fun during this time.
Here are the details you need to know about our online dance experience:
  • Grand Jete will be using the online tool Zoom & Band App to keep our students involved while we are not physically in the studio.

    Join Band by using this link:

    GJD is currently setting up ZOOM and will send out links and class times as soon as possible

We'll also be adding some bonuses for your dancer during this time:
  • Make up classes during our scheduled spring break, Online classes offered by fabulous choreographers that are free to our dancers! 
  • Active Work Sheets for dancers and gymnastics to complete while on leave
We have found ourselves in a new normal for the time being and we are committed to continuing to offer you the best customer service and dance experience during this time.
We deeply thank you for your support during this time. As a small business owner your continued dedication to our mission to provide your child with invaluable life skills through dance and gymnastics ensures we can continue doing the work we do.

If you have any questions please respond to this email otherwise we will be in touch with further details as they unfold.
See you inside our online studio!

Our best,
Miss Amanda & Miss Arenda

While we know some personal schedule's may be conflicted we wanted to ensure our students/parents that we do have makeup options set in place. 

We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. Our staff is doing everything in our power to get back to the studio as quickly as we possibly can under the circumstances. 

Please note: Our recital will continue as scheduled as well our planned parent visitation/costume weeks and picture week. 

We look forward to getting back to the studio and will continue to send updates, class notes and videos over the course of the next two weeks to keep our students on track for recital.

Please make sure your dancer/gymnast is practicing their recital routines while on this "break".

When we do re-open we ask that our parents/students/staff follow the guidelines sent via email on 3/12.


As always keep your children home if they are feeling ill or have another family member that is sick. If you have traveled by plane recently please stay home for the proper amount of time allotted by the CDC.  

This is for the safety of our staff members, students and parents.

Thank you for your understanding in this  matter during this time.
Grand Jete takes pride in our facility and how it operates and would like to highlight the policies we have in place at the studio to help our dance families stay health. 

-Sanitizer: We have sanitizer in each studio, the bathroom as well as the front desk and we encourage you to utilize it frequently

-Handwashing: We encourage frequent handwashing

-Surface Cleaning: After every class we are wiping down frequently touched surfaces. Inlcuing ballet barres, gymnastics equipment, mats and conditioning tools. 

-Deep Cleaning: Each Weekend we are deep cleaning the studio. Along with wet jetting our floors every evening. 

-Sneezes and Coughs: We are encouraging dancers and gymnasts to cough and sneeze into their arms, not their hands

-Staff: Only staff feeling well (without symptoms) will be at the studio

How can you Help:

-Don't bring toys from home
-Alert us if your child does have COVID-19 and have been to the studio within the last 14 days
-Keep your children home if they are feeling ill

Thank you so much we appreciate all of your love and support!

Miss Amanda, Miss Arenda and the GJD Staff
