  • Dancer’s MUST come dressed for class, they are currently not permitted to change on the premises.

  • Classroom start times will be staggered. There will be limited cross contact with students from other classes throughout the day.

  • Hooks for dance bags are marked 6 ft apart and those are the only hooks permitted for use by students in our small and medium size classrooms. They will be sanitized between classes.

  • 6 foot boxes have been outlined in each classroom to keep the students socially distant.

  • Dance shoes are only permitted to be used on studio floors. If a child is practicing at home, please have them use another pair of shoes.

  • Designated floor spots for dancer’s belongings are located for use in our largest classroom. These will be sanitized between classes as well.

Virtual Instruction Options

  • For those families that are apprehensive about returning to in-person classes, we are pleased to offer two virtual class options.

  • Option 1: You will be able to sign in to a regularly scheduled in-person class and participate each week simultaneously with those in class. Regular tuition applies. If at any point the student wishes to join the class in person, capacity in the classroom must still meet current social-distancing guidelines. If the class is filled, we will be happy to find you a class with empty squares.

  • Option 2: Virtual Only Class – This is a completely virtual class taught on zoom by an instructor in an empty classroom. The same tuition rates apply. Virtual only classes MUST have a minimum of 5 dancers registered for the class in order for the class to run. We will aim to allow our virtual only students to participate in the year-end recital if they wish. A virtual student may also switch to an in-person class pending on current availability and social distancing guidelines.
