Welcome To

Mary Ellen Studio of Dance

   Registration is now open
for our 
2021/2022 Dance Season
Classes start September 10th 

We will keep you updated as changes are made.

We would like to inform everyone of the safety measures we have put in place to protect our dancers.

-Being that the majority of our students are not fully vaccinated, face masks must be worn by everyone while inside the dance studio.

-We will continue curbside dancer drop off and pick up.

-We ask that all parents explain to their child in advance the below procedures:

  Our instructors will greet the parents and students at the door on their first day of class with a quick tour inside the studio and their dance room.

  Dancers are to bring their dance bag inside their dance room and put their belongings on separate chairs that are 6-feet apart.

  All parents will be asked to wait outside or in their cars during their child's class time.

  At the end of their class, our instructors will escort the dancers to the door in our waiting room for parents to pick up their child.  Please note that our instructors will assist the younger students with any changing of shoes, coats and any personal needs.

  On the last day of each month we will be allowing only ONE PARENT (no siblings) inside the studio to observe and to record their dances for the last 5 minutes of each class.

  Masks are required inside the studio if not fully vaccinated.  Because we have no way of knowing if parents are fully vaccinated, we highly encourage EVERYONE to please consider the safety of our dancers by wearing a face mask while inside our studio.
