In-Studio & Virtual Options

No matter how you’d like to take your class, we’ve got something for you!

 

In-Studio Classes (S)

We’re back in the studio and staying safe by checking temperatures, social distancing, wearing masks, and keeping things clean! Class sizes will be kept small to keep our students safe. Students are asked to limit the items they bring with them to the studio to a water bottle and purse/dance bag. There will be specific places in the studio to put these items. Please label your child’s water bottle with their name.

Virtual (Zoom) Classes (Z)

Take Zoom classes from the comfort of your home.  Students will be emailed a link approximately 1 hour before a class begins.
