Our Response To Covid-19
"As a parent I have very much appreciated the covid protocols you put in place that gave us confidence to have our daughter sign up for classes again after a year of reduced interactions with the outside world. I am sure you hear from people who are frustrated by the protocols so I wanted to be a voice to say-- Thank You!"
While we still face some limitations in-studio, we continue to stand strong in the faith that when the Covid-19 crisis has ended, we will emerge stronger, resilient and hopeful, ready to create and share our artistic gifts fully with our students and community.
Here's what you need to know:
First of all, we wanted to thank you for supporting us in helping to create a safe environment for your children to explore the arts. We want to share an update regarding California's Dept of Health updated guidance.
We are so excited to be moving to 100% Capacity at our studio! This is a huge step for us, and we can't wait to see our kids continue to grow, develop, and bond in our classes safely and responsibly.
We will continue to strive to keep class sizes small, personalized, and socially distanced. Most capacity will be between 8-14. The capacity limits are determined by age, room, and overall student/teacher experience.
Masks are required for age 4+ (K-12).
Masks are also needed for showcase and performance viewing, even if you are vaccinated.

Adults - even if you are vaccinated you must wear a face covering.
Only in case of medical exceptions are face masks not required, we encourage the use of face shields.
