Our Summer II Session begins July 6th and runs until August 28. In studio class size is limited to 10 students (until further notice) on a first come basis. We will continue to offer Zoom classes.
Until further notice, all students over the age of 10 years old MUST wear a face mask while dancing in order to abide by the mask laws and mandates set by the state of Texas and the city of Corpus Christi.
Please see the new Safety Protocols below the schedule. All students attending class in-person MUST sign the COVID safety waiver prior to their first day of class. Please check your email to find the waiver.
If you are taking in-person, please register for the regular “Summer II” classes. If you are taking via Zoom, please register for the “Summer II ZOOM”. Go online or call (361)739-5839 to register.
The new schedule reflects our old Spring schedule and our new Summer II schedule. The classes from the spring session will be working on choreography for our Fall Showcase. Several of the classes are technique only and will not be working on performance choreography.
Our Fall Showcase is on Saturday, August 29th. Recital costumes that have already been paid for will be tried on in class and released starting July 6th.
