Covid protocols remain in place, as before. These measures have worked to protect us since we began meeting in-person:
  a) Please arrive “Fully Vaccinated” (2 weeks after 2nd shot if 2nd shot was less than 6 months ago, or boosted).      
       b) Masks are required during participation (surgical or N95, KN95, or KF94).
  c) If you choose to hold hands, use sanitizer frequently.
       d) If you feel sick or have been exposed to someone diagnosed with Covid within the previous 2 weeks, please stay home. 
Note: Studio is equipped with HEPA filter & UVC light air cleaning systems to sanitize and improve the air quality. 
We require people joining us for the first time in person since we returned to in-person dancing to show proof of vaccination and signed studio Waivers. Remember to bring your own water bottle and snacks and leave your things in one of the cubbies, where you can grab them while off the dancefloor.
We believe streaming and hybrid events are here to stay. We strive to enhance the hybrid model and continue to dance with you all however we can! Our weekly Zoom sessions remain free, but, if you enjoy them, we encourage and so much appreciate contributions as you are able. Your donations go towardstudio rent, Zoom fees, upgraded equipment & funding special mega-hybrid events (master teacher workshops & live music events): ($10-15 suggested); for special events your donations go entirely to the artists. Let’s show them some love!
