Health and Safety: All Government Protocols are in place. Floors are disinfected regularly. Surfaces are disinfected after each class. Hand sanitizer stations are in place throughout the studio. Physical distancing is being maintained. We ask that all dancers, and staff, wear a mask for the duration of the workshop and bring a water bottle with an electrolyte drink.

Note on Masks: Please bring 2-4 masks for each evening of dance. Make sure your masks are 2 layers of cotton, disposable or athletic masks. It is important they are not too thick. Breaks will be given throughout classes to allow the dancers to slow their breathing, drink water, and not overheat. All the studios are air conditioned. We ask that dancers listen to, and respect, their bodies. We will do our best to ensure everyone has a safe and positive experience.

Note on Workshop Content: This is a non-syllabus ballet intensive, working to rebuild dancer’s strength, control, flexibility, technique and artistry after a long break from the studio. We look forward to seeing you all soon!
