We are thrilled to announce that we will be reopening the studio in mid-April for limited in-person classes at 25% capacity.

  • Level 3 and 4 students will return to in-studio classes beginning April 26, 2021.

  • Pre-Ballet 1 and 2, Levels 1, 2A, 2B will return to in-studio classes on May 2, 2021.

 

All in-person classes will be conducted following state and county guidelines, as well as additional safety guidelines and protocols PBT will be implementing.

Our greatest priority is the health and well-being of our PBT community, thus in-person classes will have capacity restrictions and students are required to follow COVID-19 guidelines, such as wearing a face covering and practicing social distancing. We greatly encourage students to sign up in advance to secure a spot in class. 

 

Please note, for the safety of our staff and students, we will not be accepting cash payments at this time. 

 

We are so grateful for your support, and we look forward to dancing with you in-person again.​​
