Company Announcements

Rhythmette/Jr/Sr Mask update
As of 9/6/21 Subject to Change
We expect that dancers will take every precaution outside the studio to maintain a safe and healthy lifestyle so we can uphold a safe space at the studio.  If you are sick, do not come to class.
  • All Junior/Senior Company dancers and staff are fully vaccinated and will continue to have class unmasked and not distanced.  If parents/dancers would feel more comfortable having their dancer wear a mask, please do so.
  • Rhythmettes and staff will wear masks but not distance, as a high percentage of Rhythmettes are vaccinated. 
Closed, Prep, PW Mesh Bags
Closed, Prep and Pee Wee dancers will bring their dance bag to class each week.  They will also use a mesh dance bag that fits inside their dance bag.
Dancers will bring their dance bag as usual, and then take in JUST the mesh bag with tap shoes, jazz shoes, jazz shorts and water bottle into class. This will help maximize space in dancing squares!
The studio has the bags. You will purchase them on first day of class right from us at the door!  $10.00 cash to DFA.
No trips to Competitors or LaBrie :)

  • Pee Wee-Wednesday, 9/8/21 Smithfield
