Welcome to A&B Dance Dimensions
Welcome to A&B Dance Dimensions

2020 Safety Updates and Procedures

Fall registration is now available for the 2020-21 season!  These will be live, in person classes as long as requirements from the state don't change.  We are currently working on virtual options in the event that we need to shut down in person classes for a period of time.  All registration will be done online through our parent portal at https://dancestudio-pro.com/online/abdance.  Classes are tentatively set to begin Mon, Sept 21st.  Please read ALL of the following important information regarding changes to our classes/studio. 

 

Parent/guardian will need to agree to the Safety and Liability Waiver in order to register for fall classes.

 

You must update your current grade for the 2020-21 school year and fall tshirt size (child small, child medium, child large, adult small, adult medium, adult large or adult XL) via the parent portal when registering for classes. You can do this by going to HOME on the Parent Portal - then click MANAGE STUDENTS - then click on student name - then update grade and t shirt size and save info. If this is not updated, you will NOT receive fall registration shirt.

 

We realize these changes require a lot of additional work and effort from the parents/guardians and from our staff, however we are thrilled to have this OPPROTUNITY to share our love of dance again.  While we are VERY EXCITED to get back into the studio, please know that the safety of our dancers and staff is and will continue to be our top priority. 

 

Stay well and hope to see you shortly!

 

Allison, Barb and Samantha
