Performing Arts Classes

Registration Notes

Parents will be required to complete a health assessment for their child at the beginning of every class. Only one parent and the participant will be allowed into the sign in area and masks are recommended.


Class sizes are limited and will be conducted using social distancing. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes early for class. Students must be picked up within the 15 minutes after the class has completed to avoid over-crowding. You will be sent an email with the specific details for your student’s course.

We recommend students have masks with them at all classes.

This is for sign in and out. Masks will also help in a situation where physical distancing is not possible. Each student will be given a spaces 6 feet from each other, so they may remove their mask when they get to their spot.

Masks will be worn by all staff when 6 foot distance is not possible.

If your child is more comfortable wearing thier mask throughout the class it will in no way affect their ability to participate.

If there is a medical reason limiting mask use this will be taken into account as well.
