Good Afternoon Parents and Students,
We miss seeing you at Infinity, we miss seeing Infinity students perform on our stage, we miss hearing students in lessons, and we miss instructors and their students walking in the halls. This ‘new normal’ is strange for sure, but we are so happy to report that the digital/remote lessons are going so well – nearly 1,000 digital lessons have been completed!
Everyone has worked hard to adjust to this new way of learning, and we are so excited to be able to keep our students engaged, and our instructors teaching.
Thank you for your support and willingness to try new things!
Infinity will NOT have any onsite, in-person lessons during the month of May.
We are hopeful for a June re-opening, but that will depend on many factors including NYS, Chautauqua County, and CDC guidelines, and local statistics. When re-opening does occur, we will continue to offer options for digital/remote lessons for families who would prefer that. We will keep you updated with any changes.
Performance is one area that was particularly hard hit for our students. Our annual Spring Showcase is cancelled, and numerous recitals, Kaleidoscope Nights, and performance events have been cancelled. We are creative problem solvers, though!
We have had three successful “Facebook Live” pilot events in recent weeks and are continuing to develop this component.
Please reach out to your instructor if you are interested in participating in any of the following Performance and Showcasing Opportunities for students:
o Facebook Live Quarantunes shows
o Digital Art Show
o Senior Showcase
o Spring ‘Homecase’ event
GROUP CLASSES are being developed and some re-started in a digital/remote format. Please reach out to request any specific classes or instructors!
Please check out the wonderful complimentary VIDEOS our instructors have created for students! New videos are added often; feel free to share them!
