As you likely have heard, NYC is now prohibiting certain businesses from allowing unvaccinated individuals to attend events or classes in their space. Our dance studio is classified as a fitness studio and is covered by these new rules. Therefore, we are required by NYC law to obtain proof of vaccination from all students who are 12 or older before they are allowed to attend our classes. If you have enrolled or plan to enroll for the Fall semester please submit proof that you or your child who is 12 or older is fully vaccinated or has received at least one Covid vaccine shot and has a second shot appointment. Acceptable proof may include a copy of a vaccine card or NY’s Excelsior Pass. You can upload a copy of your vaccination card below.
Under the current NYC guidance, we will not be able to enroll unvaccinated students in our studio classes. At this time we do not plan to offer virtual or outdoor classes. If a potential student who is 12 or older is not vaccinated due to a disability and has additional information they would like to share with us, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately without disclosing any personal medical information. Note that the vaccine requirement currently does not apply to students who are under 12 years old.

We appreciate your understanding as we navigate these new rules and thank you in advance for your prompt compliance and cooperation.
