As our new season begins, we will continue with our new procedures to help keep everyone safe. Please read through the entire post.


  1. Arrive no more than 5 minutes before your class.

  2. ALL DANCERS (including teens/company/adults) must enter through the lobby door.

  3. ALL DANCERS will place their bags/shoes in a cubby that will be located in the studio. Do not leave your bags in the lobby or lobby hall.

  4. ALL DANCERS must exit through the lounge/office door. Parents should wait outside the door to receive children when they exit. Our staff members will supervise the children as they leave. Please do not enter to the lounge.

  5. PARENTS and siblings will not be allowed to wait in the lobby. Please drop off your dancer, help them into their shoes, then wait in your car. If at all possible, please limit bringing siblings into the building.

  6. I encourage you to continue paying through PayPal. If you would like to pay in the office, please do so during class.

  7. Dancers are welcome to wear/bring face coverings in classes but understand that it may not be possible for some to wear a mask during physical activity.  However, all ballet classes will be required to wear a mask during the barre portion of class.  We ask that anyone dropping off a dancer please wear a mask as well.

  8. There will be hand sanitizer at the entrance. Please use it as you enter the studio.

  9. Our staff will be sanitizing the barres, doors, light switches and common areas between each class.

    The obvious things still apply (do not come to class if you are sick, have a fever or cough, or have been around someone with a fever or cough.)
