If you travel out of the state, a negative COVID-19 test or a 14-day quarantine is required for returning to your classes at Dance Fusion upon return from out of state travel. Please keep this in mind as we know some of you are still planning to travel for Thanksgiving break. Please be honest as the health and safety of our students and staff remain of utmost priority.
