In studio or zoom option!  Limit of 8 in person. Minimum number of students required.  **see below for safety information


**  If you opt to do this on zoom we suggest an adult or older sibling is around to help.  You may pick up craft supplies and snacks (fortune cookies on China day!) prior to the beginning of the camp, day/time to be determined. this way your child will have all supplies needed as if they were there.

In studio: Students will be 6 feet apart in their own grid or circle.  During craft time your child may need help and the teachers will be closer than 6 feet but will wear a mask. When snacks are provided, masks and gloves will be worn by the teacher until all students are served. Two adults and one student helper will be available the entire two hours.  During dance instruction, whether masks need to be worn is still to be determined.  Any props will be sanitized prior, used by one student only, then put away to be sanitized.
