Our staff follow safety guidelines for Covid-19

8-15-2020  We are a Mask Wearing Studio. (at this time)

We can't wait to drop the mask, but our promise to our students and families is to keep our studio as safe as possible.  We need to protect and take care of one another.  As an owner and someone who has worked with children for more than 35 years, my thoughts are "if masks can help to keep the spikes from rising, and we do our part, maybe our studios will stay open and serve our children during a time that is so difficult for all.  We love you and we care for you! 

Let's work together so we can stay together!
