After more than a year of uncertainty, we share your relief and joy as California officially reopened. 

We understand that everyone is excited to return to activities we enjoyed before the pandemic. However, face coverings will still be required at PBT when students under 12 are in building, even for people who are fully vaccinated. We’re following the advice of infectious disease experts and CDC guidance and remain committed to providing a safe environment for our students, their families, our teachers, and staff. 

We encourage you to practice self-screening for symptoms for you and your students prior to entering our building.  We also encourage good hand hygiene. The lobby will remain closed until we receive updated information from OSHA. 

If you’re fully vaccinated, thank you for doing your part to help keep your family, friends and communities safer.  

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to providing as safe place to Keep on Dancing.
