Dance Revolt — CUPE strike response letter to parents students and schools

Refunds | T Shirts | Virtual Access | Public Tickets |

Earlier this week, the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) provided notice that their members will conduct a province-wide political protest affecting many our educational partners and the their participation in Dance Revolt.

Our plan is to proceed with the conference as planned. Should the strike result in school closures, teachers and schools will not be able to attend, and parents will have the choice to send their children to the conference. In response, we are bringing 6 more Just BGRAPHIC staff, to supervise and manage students and the event.

Refunds

In the event that students can not attend the conference for any reason, a 30% credit per student will be issued to your account and can be used towards booking a dance workshop or SHSM certification. The credit must be used within the school year.

T-shirts

Due to the uncertainty of students attendance, we are asking students to go online and order their shirts from the JBG Marketplace with the coupon code provided.

This will allow us to ensure every student gets their shirt. Student can choose to pick up their shirt on the day of the conference. Or they can have it shipped directly to their house.

*Virtual access

We are currently exploring offering a virtual option for students who can not attend in person. The experience will be limited in capacity. Not decision has been made yet, more information to come.

Public Tickets

To account for the potential loss of in person attendees, due to school closures, we are opening spaces to the public. Tickets will go on sale on Tuesday November 8th. Single ticket Pre-Orders will open on Friday Nov 4th at Midnight.

This event is a historic event for hip hop dance in Toronto. As part of our mission to revolutionize arts education, this tribute to celebration of the history of Do Dat is a monumental — Thank you for your support.
