Teen and Adult 2020-21 Calendar and Class Schedules

The well-being and comfort of our students is our first priority. To that end all classes will be provided in a hybrid format, in-person and on Zoom. Adult students may choose how they wish to study. If we reach the safe occupancy numbers for the studio space students will need to reserve an in-person place prior to the class. A 10 class card is $120 and can be used for any dance class during the year. No expiration date.

  • Students will complete an online health assessment prior to each in person class session
  • Learn more about the UNCSA Community Health Standards which will guide our safety protocols
