2020-2021 Fall Classes Begin September 10th
Offering in studio and virtual classes

MESD is excited to begin the 2020/2021 dance year!
Because we know there will be some challenges ahead, we would like to inform everyone of the safety measures we have put in place to protect our dancers.
-All dancers and teachers are required to wear face masks in all classes.
-Our dance floors have been taped so each dancer has a designated area to allow for proper distancing between dancers.
-Class sizes have been adjusted to allow for proper distancing. 
-Our lobby will be closed and no parents will be allowed into the studio at this time.
-Parents will bring dancers to the studio door.  All dancers upon entering must wear a face mask and have their dance bag containing their dance shoes.  They will be escorted by our instructors into their dance room where they will place their belongings on separate chairs against the wall which are 6 feet apart.
-Each class room will be dismissed separately so that not all dancers will be leaving at the same time.
-We will frequently be disinfecting each dance room, including all door handles, floors, barres, bathroom and lobby.
