Hello Everyone,

As you may have already heard, we are able to reopen with the most recent guideline update!!! We are so excited to welcome our students back into the building! Below is important information about our return to the studio.
Returning to class
All classes will be returning to live in person classes. As always we will still be offering a zoom option for every class. This is to ensure that our dancers can continue to learn even if they are not able to attend in the studio. Please let us know if you plan to continue attending class through zoom only.
Safety procedures
Please take a moment to review our safety video here. We will continue to require masks during all times for all students ages 5 and up in accordance with the Washington State guidelines. It is encouraged that our students ages 3 and 4 wear a mask during class as well. Daily waivers will still be required for each student along with temperature checks and hand sanitizing when entering the building. Daily waivers can be found on the resources page on our website. There is only one parent per student under the age of 5 allowed in the building. No siblings allowed. Students will enter through our front main doors and exit through our back side door where they will again sanitize their hands!
Backpacks and Water Bottles
Please remember that backpacks or dance bags are NOT allowed. If your dancer needs to put their belongings into a bag it must be a clear plastic zip top bag. Students are allowed to bring water bottles with them to class, however they must have a lid that seals completely. Cups with straws are not allowed.
Dress for the Weather!
The weather here in the lovely pacific Northwest is very wet and cold. We ask that you please have your dancer wear their outdoor shoes and a jacket when walking into the building. They will need to carry their dance shoes in their hands. Ballet shoes and puddles don’t mix well! On occasion we may send students out the front doors if the courtyard is particularly wet.
Makeup/Missing Class Policy
All makeup classes will now have to be scheduled through zoom. We have a very limited number of spaces in each class. Please let us know if you plan to attend a zoom class as a makeup as we will be taking attendance.
Attendance Schedules
There have been slight changes to the attendance schedules for hybrid classes. If your dancer was previously attending class every week in person then your class is not a hybrid class. Please see the attendance schedule for hybrid classes below. We will be returning on Monday to a White week. This means that all White week students attend in person and all Green week attend on Zoom. The White/Green calendar has not changed and can be found on the resources page on our website.
