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.

Lost + Found

If you are missing a water bottle, dance bag, or item of clothing, please have your dancer check our lost and found bin in the hallway on the second floor. Any unclaimed items will be donated on October 1.
