COVID-19 update


Overview

To all of our fantastic DSA students, parents/carers

In light of the Government and World Health Organisation announcements yesterday, we will closing the doors to our school on a face to face basis as of today 21st March 2020 and breaking early for the Easter school holidays.

There are just under 2 weeks left before the official Easter break which we hope to be able to set up some online classes during this time – we are working on this as we speak – allowing us to continue rehearsals in some capacity

We will miss seeing you all in person but it’s important that you stay well.  We will get back to the business of show as soon as we can!

Thinking of you and your families at this extraordinary and uncertain time.

 

DSA YOUTH THEATRE:

SUMMER SHOW

In the event that we have to cancel the July Summer show, all show fees paid will be transferred to our December 14th 2020 Showcase.

SUMMER SCHOOL

We envisage that this year’s “His Dark Material’s” Summer school will be going ahead as planned.  We will keep you updated.

 

 

DSA FULL TIME SCHOOL:

 

As of 20th April 2020 we will be delivering as many classes as we can online and we will contact you over the Easter break to explain how this will be facilitated.

DSA1 TRINITY EXAM:

Trinity are still intending to run the exam in June physically and as such you will still be working towards this.  In the event that the exam is cancelled, those of you with provisional offers for Drama school will be graded with a predicted grade which will be facilitated by James.

MAY SHOWCASE: 

We still want to work towards the May Showcase as best we can and this will be considered as we move forward online.  We may have the option to reschedule but this could after the course has ended – we will continue to discuss this with you all.

DSA2 OCR:

We are still waiting on advice from OCR as to how they will proceed with regard to the cancellation of exams nationwide.  We will have enough evidence to support your unit grades and will continue to collate this from our FB group.

We will still be accepting video auditions when face to face auditions aren’t possible and for our next round of auditions on 29th April this will also be the case – we will be contacting auditionees by email with more details.
