ORLANDO BALLET & COVID19 UPDATES May 28, 2020 |

UPDATED: 6/3/2020 10:00AM

The safety and well-being of students, patrons, staff, and company dancers will always be of the highest importance to Orlando Ballet. Following the advice of public health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and local and state health officials on safely reopening, Orlando Ballet Company and School will begin opening June 1. 

 

 

THE 20/21 SEASON

Season subscriptions for the upcoming 2020-21 season at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts are on sale now. “The Premiere Collection,” formerly, “Made in the USA: A Collection of American Works” from the 2019-20 season, has been added to the lineup. “The Premiere Collection” will mark the first performance at Harriett’s Orlando Ballet Centre and takes the place of “Icons & Idols A Mixed Rep”.

Orlando Ballet will continue to closely follow health and safety guidelines from the CDC and local and state health officials to protect patrons, company dancers, students and staff. Due to the uncertainties associated with COVID-19, performance times and dates are subject to change. 

 

ORLANDO BALLET SCHOOL

Following the advice of public health officials and the Centers for Disease Control and local and state health officials on safely reopening, Orlando Ballet Company and School will begin opening June 1. OBS will remain vigilant in keeping a safe and positive atmosphere for students and visitors. 

 

 

OBS SUMMER INTENSIVE

Orlando Ballet School’s 2-week and 5-week Summer Intensive will start simultaneously without OBS sponsored boarding as an option. Students will be split into groups with staggered start times to ensure students are properly socially distanced throughout our facility.  Please see Health and Safety Policies and Protocols to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 at HOBC for specific policies and procedures. 

 

 

FITNESS THRU DANCE

Limited capacity Fitness thru Dance classes in-studio at Harriett’s Orlando Ballet Centre will begin June 1. The full schedule of class offerings is available on the MindBody app.  A PDF of the schedule is also available to download. Please note that all payments must be processed electronically and advance registration is required due to capacity limits for purposes of social distancing. Masks must be worn to access the facility and are currently required for class. Please see Health and Safety Policies and Protocols to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 at HOBC for specific policies and procedures. 

 

SUMMER DANCE CAMP

A limited camp schedule will begin June 8 – June 19. The Peter Pan Summer Camp will have a limited capacity of 50 students. Please see Health and Safety Policies and Protocols to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 at HOBC for specific policies and procedures. 

Regretfully, OBS will not run the Jr. Camp at this stage, as these children are younger and less likely to be capable of handling the social distance and safety guidelines. This will also ensure smaller class sizes and maximize social distancing between classes. Plans for Jr. Camp will be announced later in the summer after Summer Intensive and before public school begins in August.
