Welcome back to our 2020/2021 Season! Wa are SO excited to see all of our returning dancers & we are extremely ecstatic to meet all of our new students in person and virtually!

A Note from Miss Nina

Hello ECPAC Family!

Classes start on Aug 3rd and we could not be more excited!  We’re offering all of our classes both in-person and virtual, and this year all of our classes will be recorded so if your dancer misses class he/she can participate at home by watching the recording! 

Did you know we are a licensed More Than Just Great Dancing™ studio?  That means we are committed to a higher standard of teaching and best business practices.  That also means that our teachers and staff are CPR and first aid certified, background checked, and we follow the Safer Studio Guidelines™ for health and safety standards. New this season we are also now a Tech-Enabled Studio™We are committed to the wellness of your child.  Dance, tumbling/acro, and theater classes promote a healthy mind, body, and heart!  To make it possible for our dancers to come back into the studio we have ramped up all of our safety protocols. Here are some examples of how we are keeping our dancers and their families’ health and safety a top priority.Safety Protocols:

  • Masks must be used by everyone who enters and students wear them in classNew entry points for each dance roomsLimiting class sizesMarked floors to socially distance the kidsHealth screens for staffTemperature checks upon entryHand sanitizer before and after classLive streaming all of our classesLimited attendance in our lobbiesClassrooms are cleaned between classesAll staff must wear masksOffering personal prop bags for young children’s classesTech-Enabled Studio™ so students can attend their regular live classes at home at any time

Please know that our policies may change as we learn to navigate this pandemic.We can’t wait to see you in class, either in person or virtually!  Miss Nina
