Accessibility notes: All classes will be offered in person and on Zoom. There are no stairs to get into The Beat and none inside the studio. The dance studio, lobby, and bathrooms are all wheelchair accessible. There is free street parking in front of the studio. There will be dancers demonstrating seated adaptations for all movement taught throughout the day. In order to make this event accessible to as many people as possible, we are requesting a low-scent environment–please refrain from using scented body, hair, or laundry products prior to attending. Please note that we are one group of many who rents this studio and it is part of a shared office building with shared bathrooms; we are unfortunately unable to control the type of soap in the bathrooms and cleaning products used in the space. Please also note that due to the shared building and studio there may be individuals in the building without masks, though we are requiring N95/KN95/KF94 masks for all Day of Dance participants and teachers.
