Classes are Indoors.

These classes are mask optional.

Lots of Windows and Large Air Purifier

-You will check in with a security Guard when you arrive, so please arrive 5 minutes early if possible.
    -Security guard will check to make sure your child is in class
    -If you registered the day of class, make sure you have your order confirmation on your phone.
    -Security guard will check to make sure everyone has a vaccination card who is 5 or older.
                -If the vax card is a problem for anyone let us know.  

-Please make sure all adults who go with your child have their vax card on them.
-Because they have some outdoor stairs at this location, there is a stroller Valet at the door (fancy!), so please be prepared to take what you need from your stroller.

Classroom Etiquette:

-Shoes off inside please

-No solid food or pouches as it is distracting for other kids and also could make a mess.

-Bottles/nursing/ and non-staining drinks are fine for your kids though :)

-For parents drinking coffee, smoothies, etc please make sure you always put your drinks in a safe place or in a spill safe container. We don't want to ruin any rugs! Lol

-Music is Social! We are happy if music class can be a time for adults to socialize with their friends, but please do so quietly, so the kids can hear the music without your teacher having to yell.



What to Bring!

-1 or 2 Dancing scarves for your child, which we use every 2-3 classes.

-If you have a young infant who is not sitting up yet on their own or is still spitting up,

please bring a thin blanket for them to roll around on and to protect the rug from spit up (lol).

-Proof of Vaccination for anyone 5 years or older

We will supply instruments for kids to jam on in in class! (which we clean after each class) We do ask that you buy yourself some instruments so your kids can jam at home! Playing music at home will give them a chance to explore all they have learned in class.

See our recommended instruments here
