COVID-19 protocol: Your well being matters. To minimize the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on communities of color, spaces will be clearly marked 6 feet apart in the dance class and seating areas, and mask-wearing will be observed at all times except for when attendees are drinking or eating.
This activity is made possible with a grant from the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council through the Minnesota Disaster Recovery Fund.
