Covid-19 Updates & Q&As
Q: What’s happening in Spring 2021?
A: We will be returning to our regular format of producing one show per class, meeting once a week and performing in late Spring/early Summer. Dance classes will resume, as normal. Check out our STUDIO tab for more information.
Q: Do you have social distancing and safety precautions in place for classes and shows?
A: Yes. The complete list is detailed in our Policies and Procedures. Each family will receive a copy upon enrollment and will be asked to sign acknowledging. Students will not be allowed to enter Special Care until the waiver has been signed. We reserve the right to withdraw any person who does not comply. To download a copy, click HERE.
Q: What happened to the shows from Spring 2020?
A: Due to Covid 19, there have been several new rules regarding contract rights and which shows are eligible for livestream vs. audience attendance. We along with Special Care have agreed that the best way to ensure our actors' and teachers’ safety is to perform shows without in-person audiences. Instead, we will livestream or film these productions based on contract regulations.
Q: What classes will be offered this semester?
A: We will still have our regular class offerings for each age group although are combining the two youngest to be one class: Curtain Call (4-8yrs), Take Five (8-12yrs), and Center Stage (13-18yrs). We will also continue to offer Jazz, Tap, and Ballet.
Q: I’m new to Kismet Arts and and plan to start in the Spring. How will I participate in a show that's already been cast?
A: Act One and Curtain Call are restarting SEUSSICAL JR, but will be holding auditions for re-casting vacant roles. The other two shows are new and all roles are open for auditioning.
Q: If I audition for a show, will I automatically be cast?
A: Unfortunately, we have to limit cast sizes in order to maintain a safe social distance, so only those cast in roles will be invited to take the class.
