CBD ADULT PROCEDURE CHECK IN FOR CLASSES starting May 18, 2020:

  • Adult students must check in online for IN STUDIO classes and online classes. The School is at a limited capacity, and therefore all check-in must be done online. We also need to keep the flow of traffic at the front desk moving.
  • Most classes on the schedule will continue to be offered online. Check website for updates regularly.
  • Visit the website: https://www.contemporaryballetdallas.com/full-schedules/adults-schedule/
  • As you can see, there are 2 options for many of the same classes. That is because some classes are online only and some are IN STUDIO. If you want to attend the IN STUDIO Classes, then you must register online for that class. If the class has reached capacity, then you should select the online version of that class to sign in.
  • Please also read and adhere to the above policies that we have implemented for the Reopening.
  • Adults must wear a mask entering the studio and while in class.

As we cautiously maintain holding classes at 50% capacity during this time of COVID, I hope that these precautions we have taken assure you and make you feel comfortable to return to the studio for Adult classes and children’s classes. We care about our employees, students and families and we look forward to welcoming you back into the studio!  Please contact me with any questions or concerns during this time. And know that we also continue to offer online classes as an option!

Sincerely,
