Rocky Mountain School of the Arts is working hard to finish the year strong. In response to the quarantine, RMSA immediately began providing dance classes remotely. Livestream classes and recorded classes continue, and to date we have recorded over 90 videos and provided over 10 livestream classes. Piano lessons have also continued but our final two classes for our spring session of preschool and kindergarten group music have been put on hold. We are looking forward to our summer dance and music camps coming up and continue to prepare for those, holding on to the hope they move forward as scheduled.
It was decided just yesterday, Our annual RMSA/RMDT Masterpieces of Ballet and Spring Productions scheduled in May will be cancelled, with the hopes of doing something informal at some point. It was a very hard decision as so much work has already been put into the performances. Students and teachers look forward to the end of year performances which celebration all they’ve accomplished, but with so much time away from “in the studio rehearsals”, it is difficult to produce the same quality production we’ve all come to expect.
As for RMDT’s summer season of Wild West Spectacular the Musical, the decision to move forward or cancel has not been made. We hope the 5th Annual Season will move along as planned, but we realize there are many factors to consider. We were to announce the cast March 30 but that has been delayed due to the virus. Wild West Spectacular had over 75 individuals auditions from across the country and we are excited to announce the 2020 cast soon.
