Salsa and Bachata Events and Classes
In order to maintain social distancing and provide a safe atmosphere for you to dance, there is a limited number of slots available in each class. Each slot can fit either 1 or 2 students. If you and your partner wish to reserve a slot, one of you must sign up for this class title and the other must sign up in the Partner Registration class of the same time slot. There will be no rotating of partners during classes. Both staff and students will wear masks while in the studio at all times. All students should enter at the front of the studio before class, and then exit out the back of the studio after class. We will have a 15 minute transition period between classes. The doors will be open. Fans will be on. Hand sanitizer will be readily available.
