Safety Modifications for Little Limelight:

Classes are held in person with a Zoom option and will be moved to virtual if needed due to state or local orders.  Studio classrooms are set up to ensure students are kept 6 feet apart to the extent possible.  Masks must be worn at all times.  Only 1 (masked) parent per Little Limelight student is permitted in the building at a time. Enhanced cleaning procedures are in effect.  TPAC is a "Safer Studio" and we follow strict guidelines set forth by the CDC, state and local authorities, and the "More Than Just Great Dancing" affiliated studios.  All modifications are subject to change - the most effective modifications we can make will be those we make based on the most up to date information.  We will keep you updated all along the way.
