Once again, masks will be required along with sanitizing and safety measures to provide a safe environment for our dancers. The lobby will remain closed. Dancers will line up and Instructors/assistants will escort out dancers to the classroom. Parents of younger ones, please be sure to wait by the door for your child’s class dismissal.
