Covid-19 Precautions & Policies

As the current situation continues to develop, we will continue to edit and change our precautions & policies as necessary. Our main priority is the safety of our students, staff and all of our loved ones. We will strive to do everything we can to make our facility the safest possible while still continuing to provide quality dance education. If you have suggestions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Main office. I cannot thank you enough for your continued support. 

With love,

      Miss Anita
