ASH Family,

We are here for you and we miss dancing with you! We, like you, are so disappointed that we have not been able to dance together. We look forward to teaching your students, seeing their beautiful dances, critiquing wonderful routines, and watching the growth of your dancers from year to year. We also know what an incredible amount of work goes into preparing your students and routines to participate in our convention and we are sorry your season has halted so suddenly. While this a difficult time we want you to know that we are here for you, and you have our full support as we navigate this together. We hope that we will all be back dancing together soon!

ASH NATIONALS
ASH Nationals is now VIRTUAL! Click HERE to get more info!

Since so many of our wonderful dancers missed the opportunity to audition for a scholarship to Nationals, and because we want to support dance education during this time of social distancing we will be allowing video auditions. ASH’s director, Braham Logan Crane, has filmed his audition combos for your students to learn at home, record their audition, register for the audition online, and submit! Scholarships and eligibility for ASH Nationals will be awarded based on their video audition. We are excited to see you dance, and encourage at home dancing and practicing.

ASH on the GO!
We are bringing ASH to you! We are thrilled to introduce this brand new program that brings the ASH Faculty into your very own studio! Click HERE to get more info!

ASH REGIONALS
Due to the Covid -19 Virus all ASH regional events have either been canceled or postponed through the end of the 2019/2020 Season. ASH is working diligently to reschedule some of these events. We will contact you with further details as we work through these details with local government, CDC recommendations, and our with our venue and hotel partners.

The ASH office will be communicating with Studio Owners/Directors to work out all transfers and credits.

ASH MERCHANDISE
Coming soon we will have all of our ASH merchandise available to purchase online. We know your kids and faculty look forward to purchasing our new styles each year and we want to make sure you are still able to enjoy our current line of ASH Merchandise. We will reach out when we have this the site LIVE. Be on the lookout for promo codes for our launch!

THE ASH COMMITMENT
ASH will continue to be in contact with you on a weekly basis. Please know that we are doing everything within our power to navigate this situation. We thank you for being so supportive and for granting us the time to organize and problem solve. We know that you will continue to be patient while we iron out all the details and try to creatively problem solve in a way that is positive for the whole dance community. We will post general information to our website and social media, however all email/phone correspondence will be strictly directed to the studio owners and directors. We love our dance parents, but we must streamline our communication to better serve all of our ASH family. If you registered Independently you will receive the same correspondence as the studio owners/directors.

All of us will get through this situation, and we can’t wait to dance with you on the other side. Remember we are a strong and passionate community, we can overcome anything. Please stay safe, stay healthy, and keep dancing!

Warmly,
ASH Staff
