2019-2020 TDC Letters / Forms

Dance Families,

We hope that all of our families are staying healthy during this crazy time.  The staff misses their students and families so very much. 

We are so sad that we are not able to finish our 60th Anniversary Celebration the way we had planned. We are excited to be able to announce our plans to continue with a different kind of celebration.  Here are our 3 options and I really hope this is not confusing, if you have any questions please call me on my cell phone at anytime
(Deb 419-303-8117). 

Plan A: Return to classes in June

If we can return to classes in June we will return for 6 lessons 
(Schedule to come as soon as we hear the plans the State has for us)

Petite and Evening Show Rehearsal July 8-9 (times to be determined) at the Veterans Memorial Civic and Convention Center.

Performances July 11-12 (Times will be determined once we get the plans from the State as to how many audience members we can have in attendance at the performances)

Our Dance 1 and Terrific 2’s showcase will be Friday, July 10th at the Wapakoneta Performing Arts Center in Wapak, (details to come as soon as we hear what the state allows us to do)

If we cannot get back to classes in June, we will not be able to have our performances in July, and we will go with Plan B.


Plan B:  Video Performance to be aired at Van-Del Drive Inn

We will have 6 classes in July and we will be filming each dance in full costume. We will create a video of the show that will be available for purchase with your dancer’s entire routine. We will also be putting together a highlight clip of each dance for our movie night on August 13th at the Van-Del Drive- In located at Middle Point, Ohio.

On Sunday, July 12th we will have a drive in Award Ceremony at the Dance Centre to honor our Award Recipients & give them their trophy.

At the drive in we will honor our Award Winners & Seniors as well as a few extra special surprises and end the evening with a spectacular fire works show.

If it still is not safe to have classes so that we can film the show we will go with Plan C.

Plan C: Movie and fun night at the Drive-In 

Whether we get to do plan A or B we will have our fun night at the Drive- In Thursday, August 13th [with a rain date of Monday, August 17th] at the Van-Del Drive Inn for all TDC families.

With any of these plans I am not giving up on having a Celebration.  All of our students and staff have worked so hard and I want to celebrate each and every one of you.

Parents, you have dedicated so much time and finances that I am going to do everything I can to make sure this is a celebration to remember!

Costume and Finale shirts

We would like to get ready for costumes to go home as well as our wonderful finale shirts.  All accounts will be credited for 5 weeks of lessons. In order to get your costumes we ask that all accounts be paid in full.  You will be charged for the 6 weeks of lessons in hopes we will have them.  If we go with Plan C, I will credit you back the 6 weeks you were charged.  I will not charge you for lessons you did not get.

Adjusting accounts

Accounts will take about 3 weeks to adjust; we will let you know when this is complete. We will let you know when costumes can begin to go home once I have all accounts adjusted.


What if you paid in full at this point?

If you have paid your account in full at this time and you are left with a credit on your account you can do one of 3 things. 

1). (preferred) Leave the credit on your account for next season.  If you want to do this you DO NOT need to respond.

         2). Receive a refund, please call or email The Dance Centre

                  3). Donate to the Covid Scholarship Fund, to help TDC families in need. If you choose this please call or send an                                 email to The Dance Centre.

I want to help all of our families to get through this very difficult time,   please let me know what works best for your family. 


Thank you for your patience on all of my crazy ideas.  I am working very hard to make sure that we can celebrate our 60th Anniversary.   After everything that these children have had to give up I just don’t want them to have to give up their dance season if we can make a plan that will work.

We love our Dance Families and we will get through this and we will CELEBRATE!!!!

We will keep you posted as things unfold.


Love you all,

Deb Schlenker
