Dear Martell Families,

With the recent announcement that school will remain closed for the duration of the academic year, we want you to know that we are here for you and for your children.

Our On-line Learning community has become our “studio away from the studio” and each week, our faculty looks forward to the time we get to share with your children.

The on-line classes are offering our dancers the opportunity to:

  • Maintain a healthy connection with their friends and teachers
  • Experience interactive and familiar artistic movement classes
  • Refine their already established strength, knowledge, and technique
  • Rejuvenate and reset their mind and body through the healing power of music and dance

If you have not yet enrolled your dancer for their on-line dance classes and would like to get started, please e-mail me directly at [email protected]. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding this new way of learning. I am also happy to arrange a trial class for your child that will help you gain a sense of how they will respond. 


Technology: You will need an i-phone, tablet, or laptop that has access to the internet (check out Zoom as this is our interactive platform).

Environment: Enough space for your child to move freely.

*Also, be prepared to assist your child in their use of technology if needed. 


We are continuing to offer our classes at 50% with the intention of reaching every student and making dance classes affordable in these trying times. We are still honoring our traditional discounts for multi-student and multi-class families.


Our faculty are currently working on a way to get each dancer their costumes. Please continue to check your e-mail as this update will be released once the Stay At Home Order has been lifted.


Just a brief note about sending mail. Please ONLY send US Mail correspondence to our Martell Tu address at 1530 West Market St., Akron, OH 44313. We do not have an active mailbox at our Highland Square studio.


If your dancer is already enrolled, thank you. We appreciate the opportunity to see your child(ren) each week and maintain our relationships with them in these trying times. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need anything, have questions, or just want to connect. Follow us on social media (Facebook & Instagram) for updates about the happenings of our studio. We hope you’re staying healthy and look forward to the time when we can all be together.

With love and appreciation for you,

Rachel and the Martell Faculty & Staff
