 School Closure due to COVID-19
I have been actively monitoring the progression of COVID-19 these past weeks. Governor Wolf has continued the closure of schools until at least April 6, 2020, ordering the closure of non-essential businesses, and announced a stay at home order for several counties, including Lehigh.  

For the safety of the students and staff, I have made the very difficult decision to close Repertory Ballet Academy until the Governor allows us to reopen. At this time, we are cautiously optimistic about reopening and continuing classes and having the May 31 recital, provided we can safely do so.  

I will be starting online classes through Zoom the week of March 30.  Please check your emails for further instructions.  I have also been posting on the RBA Facebook page online classes and activities that I think your children might enjoy.  I am constantly updating the page, so please check back frequently. 

I will continue to closely monitor the status of COVID-19 and stay in communication. In a couple of weeks, we will hopefully have a better idea of when we can safely open.  I appreciate your understanding, cooperation, and support during this uncertain time.  With everyone's cooperation, we will all weather this unprecedented crisis.

Dancingly yours,
Jennifer Haltzman Tracy
