Dear Dancers and Parents,

Here we are, September 2nd! 

Fall Classes

  • Classes begin September 14th, but we would like to call in our team kids on Tuesday and Thursday September 8 & 10 to work on our routines and technique. A schedule will be emailed out soon with specifics. 

  • Your Tuesday and Thursday class schedules have been entered and you should see them in your parent portal, and we will be adding your Saturday classes shortly for you. 

    • We are super excited for our new class format. Please be mindful that class lists were generated in sometimes a certain way because of a dancer's experience in a certain genre. 

  • We are currently working on the Saturday Rehearsal Schedule and will send it out to everyone as soon as it is complete.

Covid-19 Protocols 

  • We will be strictly adhering to our Covid-19 protocols that have been put in place. Please make sure all dancers and family members abide by the following guidelines: 

  • Teachers and students must wear a mask at all times. 

  • All students must enter through the front of the building and exit through the back. 

  • When students enter their name and temperature will be recorded along with responses the following questions: 

    • Have you or anyone in your home been experiencing any flu-like/covid-19 symptoms? 

    • Have you traveled out of the state of CT in the past 14 days? If yes, where? 

  • Studio doors can remain open if temperature allows it. 

  • Ceiling fans will be on to help circulate air flow. 

  • Hand sanitizer (for both hands and feet if barefoot) is available and required when entering class and before leaving class. 

  • Grid lines and other markers are on the floor and barres to keep students distanced properly. 

  • Teachers will wipe down/disinfect all touched surfaces before switching classes/studios.

  • Bathrooms will be cleaned every hour. 

  • Floors are steamed mopped and sterilized daily. 

**Please be advised that we are asking students not to "hang out" in the lobby areas in between their classes during this time. If your dancer has a significant amount of time in between classes, please be sure they are picked up. Parents and family members are not permitted to wait in the lobby areas during class times.
