Welcome Back Dance Families!
Fall 2020 classes are now underway. Please review our updated Studio Handbook.
Due to COVID-19, the dance season may look a little different than our dancers are used to, but we assure you, classes will still be lots of fun and our dancers will continue to learn and progress! Please note, dancers over 2 years of age will need to wear a mask into the building. Once class begins, dancers may remove their masks.

Welcome to Dance In Style Studio!
Hello Dancers and Parents,
I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. The staff and I are excited to welcome our dancers back to the studio!
Class sizes are smaller and dancers will remain six feet apart in marked, boxed-off areas. Staff will be wearing a mask at all times and studios will be sanitized in between classes. The staff and I will make sure that the studio is a safe environment for our dancers.
We are grateful for your registration for this dance season and thank you in advance for cooperating and following the mandated regulations that will ensure our studio is run safely. The staff and I truly appreciate your on-going support. We are excited to share our love of dance live and in-person once again with our students this fall!
