Minimized Mixing and Mingling

  • We have made facility, scheduling, and curricular changes to reduce mixing and mingling in support of social distancing recommendations.  

 

Facility & Curricular Adjustments

  • To minimize dancer traffic in and out of the studio, and to allow for proper cleaning and disinfecting, there is a minimum of 20 minutes between classes in each studio room.

Dancer Drop Off

Sibling visitors cannot be accommodated at this time.
