2020 Modifications

Class sizes will be limited to 8-10 dancers, therefore spots are first come first serve. If you would like to register for a class that is full, they can provide you with the option to take the class online through Zoom.

Hand sanitizer will be readily available, and they will be taping off areas so each dancer has their own socially distanced space. Each dancer will be 6 feet apart at all times. They will also be taking the temperatures of students before class.
