…happened at the end of 2020 summer!

We are planned to a safely distanced Halestone Recital at Boxerwood Gardens on Friday, August 28th, 2020 at 6:30 pm (SHOW A) and Saturday, August 29th, 2020 at 6:30 pm (SHOW B).

The concert was open to the public. Tickets were $15 per car, with $10 of the proceeds going to support Halestone and $5 to support Boxerwood.

We took the following safety procedures to stay safe:

  • Everyone (dancers, parents, instructors and volunteers) over the age of 2 were asked to wear a mask, even when dancing in rehearsals and onstage during the performances.
  • When dancers checked-in at each rehearsal and each show, a volunteer at the check-in desk took their temperature. Please help us by screening your children at home and keeping them home when they are sick or have any of the following symptoms: fever or chills, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, fatigue, muscle or body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea.
  • We changed our choreography and the spacing of our dancers. We had two wooden stages each approximately 12 ft by 16 ft and we will also use the grassy area for large classes.
  • Audience members were instructed to bring their own chairs and blankets and space themselves 6 feet from other attendees. Dancers will sat with their families when they were not performing and were able to watch the dances before and after theirs.
  • We had a clear plan for the flow of dancers from the audience to the stage and back to the audience (detailed below).
  • We had hand sanitizer stations set up for dancers and audience members to utilize.
