After  the November 19th announcements, Dance Studios are still allowed to continue.  Masks MUST be worn when going into smaller common areas where you cannot maintain a 2m distance.  This would include the entrance area and washrooms with more than 1 person in them at Meaden Hall and the entrance and hall of the studio on Upper Ganges.  However, masks are not mandatory  during class in the space designated for dance, as long as 2m distance is maintained.

- All Classes will be Hybrid:  Via Zoom and In-Person while permitted by public health authority

If in-person classes are not possible due to restrictions, classes will continue Via Zoom
