COVID-19 Updates

Classical Ballet Academy's goal is to provide safe in-person instruction to our dancers while keeping our faculty and students healthy. Please check back regularly for updates. We thank you for your patience, understanding and support during this period of uncertainty. We believe in the power of dance to inspire, energize and bring us together.

GENERAL ILLNESS ETIQUETTE:

With any communicable illness, Covid or otherwise, please be courteous and excuse yourself/your dancer from our spaces where  peers or teachers may be exposed.

MASKS:

  • Mask wearing is no longer required, but is encouraged for dancers, staff, and visitors. 

  • When you make your decision about whether you (or your child) will wear a mask, please consider that we have dancers that either are or have close relatives who are more vulnerable to COVID-19 due to age or medical conditions. In addition, please keep in mind our teachers, many of whom have professional obligations outside of our studio that they will be unable to fulfill for several days if they get COVID - no matter how mild.

  • Be aware that a variety of factors and circumstances may cause us to change masking policies  in the future. Please know that the decisions we make are after thoughtful consideration of many factors and are made with the best interests of our dancers, faculty, and staff in mind.
