Volume 21 2021-2022 Season
Not Feeling Well?:

As we enter into the season with many bugs/viruses, we appreciate those of you that are taking COVID tests when you aren't feeling well. Please continue to do so and communicate results. However, when you are negative yet still feel poorly (headache, stomachache, cold symptoms), please choose to stay home. If you are at dance and not feeling well, we will ask you to head home.
Visiting Week:

We would like to return to a tradition that parents and students enjoy this December-Visiting Week. However, we will need to make some adjustments to limit the number of people in the building at once. For families that are new to NHAPA since COVID, this is a week just before we break for the holidays in December where classes may be viewed-also known as "Peak Week".

This will take place the last full week of classes we have in December (13th-18th/Mon-Sat). Note: we will be open til 12/21 (closed 12/22-1/2). We will NOT be having a second Visiting week in April. In order to keep things manageable with # of people the following terms will be in effect:

1) All guests MUST be masked.
2) All non-company classes will be open with a limit of 2 guests.
3) Company classes will only be open on Tuesday and Saturdays and guests will be limited to 1/ class due to the size of many of the company classes.
