Will 2020-2021 Classes be held in-person or online?

All dancers and a single parent/guardian of each dancer will be allowed to enter Jeté Dance Centre.

Please refrain from bringing any additional family members or visitors to scheduled class time. Children young enough to be in a carseat will be allowed to enter, but it is requested they remain in the carseat or in a parent's arms.

All individuals Ages 5+ who enter Jeté Dance Centre must wear an effective, face covering. It is also recommended, but optional, for children Ages 2-5 to wear a face covering.
Dancers must wear face coverings until they enter the studio for class time. They will continue to wear face coverings during any low exertion class time. During high exertion acitivites, it is optional for dancers to continue to wear their face covering, or they may choose to remove and safely store them.
Teachers and Assistants will wear transparent face shields for voice projection and to allow dancers to see their instructors faces. This has proven to be more inviting for younger dancers.

Class sizes will be capped at smaller numbers, following occupancy and distancing guidelines from the CDC and MDH.
