Emergency Drills: October 4 – 9

We will conduct emergency drills the week of October 4 – 9 in all of our programs. These will include earthquake, fire, and secure-in-place drills. We want all our dancers, faculty, and staff to be prepared and feel confident in the case of an emergency.

Three back-to-back drills are scheduled during each class block. The drills will take about 15-20 minutes to complete. Parents: Please review the information with your dancer prior to class by clicking on the button below. Please also be sure your dancer wears shoes to class and brings a jacket in case of cool weather.
