Dear Friends of Iraqi Dance,
The current situation created by the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown all of us into a time of uncertainty. As the crisis escalates and resources become strained we are reaching out to let you know that we remain committed to putting YOU at the center of everything we do, and to partnering with you to find solutions to the challenges we are all facing. As such, we are implementing additional measures and policies in an effort to serve you and protect the integrity of the event and future events like it.
We would like to share some important updates with you:
We are postponing our event scheduled for May 14-16, 2021 and intend to reschedule for the Fall 2021 (October).
We will continue to offer payment plans for the event
If the event is rescheduled, such as it is now, we will apply registration, deposits and any other monies kept towards your tuition for the rescheduled event. Of course, if you require a refund, we will be happy to speak directly with you to accommodate your needs.
First and foremost, we remain focused on providing you the best quality event for teaching and learning. We are not ready to throw in the towel. We remain hopeful that the introduction of the new COVID vaccines will soon mean greater freedom of travel, enabling people to return to work and school, and spurring economic recovery for us all. With hope in our hand, we will continue to go forward with preparations for our workshops and show for the Fall of 2021 (October).
We are very excited to let you know that our talented Master Instructor Mohanned has retained his airline tickets and has confirmed his attendance for the Fall of 2021. Our venue, Madilyn Clark Studios, with their long history and venerable reputation in Los Angeles has also confirmed their participation – now all we need is YOU!
Within the context of our new normal we know your needs are changing by the day, and so we will continue to look for ways to provide solutions to fit your needs. As such, we are putting additional measures in place in an effort to serve you, our community, and to protect the integrity of the event. First, we will continue to offer dancers flexible payment plans tailored to fit your individual need. Should your circumstances warrant, we will be happy to offer you a refund of any tuition paid, less $55.00. This amounts to a 75% refund of your total tuition paid. We will be retaining this small amount in order to cover security deposits and travel fees already paid to secure our Master Teacher and venue. At the same time, any monies paid in to us, regardless of if you receive a refund, will be put towards future tuition should your circumstances improve and you decide to re-join the event – with no penalty. Finally, should the event be rescheduled, such as it is now, we will move all monies paid in to us to that future event. This will be our last change of date and we do not anticipate another shift of dates. If the event is canceled all monies paid in will be refunded in full.
There is no such thing as “business as usual” right now—every day presents new hurdles to overcome. We understand this is an unprecedented situation, and we appreciate your flexibility and understanding during this transition. We will update you with new information as it develops.
Thank you for moving forward with us!
