The Cold and Flu Season is upon us
Please  do not  send your child to dance if you kept them home from school  or if they have not been fever free for at least 24 hrs.  

We try our best to clean and sanitize all areas of the studio, including door handles, ballet barres, bathrooms, lobby area and the children's toys.  Our goal is to keep all our dancers and teachers as healthy as possible.
