Until further notice, Dance 101 plans to enforce the following safety precautions to avoid the spread of COVID-19:
- To help with physical distancing, class sizes will be reduced. Also, the amount of people allowed to be in the lobby will be limited. However, distancing may not always be possible, and someone may inadvertently come within six feet.
- Due to the limitation on class sizes drop-in and make up classes will not be available.
- There will be regular cleaning and sanitation. The studio, including props and mats, will be disinfected frequently.
- Only 1 parent or guardian may pick up and drop off.
- Anyone experiencing any fever, cough, repeated sneezing, or other flu-like symptoms is not permitted on premises.
- Everyone must wash or sanitize their hands prior to entering and leaving the studio. We have set up additional hand-sanitizing stations.
- There will be designated spots for each child in class.
Our classes are based on age and ability, offering you the best possible class placement. Please contact us for guidance on the correct level for your success.
To feel like a dancer your must look like a dancer. Students are expected to be in the appropriate attire and have the correct shoes for class.

Dance 101 takes students as soon as they can walk in our Parent/Child program.
Due to the limitation on class sizes drop-in and make up classes will not be available. Students are expected to attend their registered class regularly. Switching classes without teacher approval and withdrawals are highly discouraged. This can disrupt the learning process for all the students in a class.
Class sizes must always meet a minimum of 6 registered students in order for it to be held. We will take up to 18 students with 2 instructors.
Dance 101 runs like a school year offering a 40 class season between August and May. We also offer a shorter summer session in June and July.

Please bring students to class on time and pick them up promptly. You must supervise your children in the waiting area at all times. Parents are welcome to leave the studio while their child is in class.
Dance 101 has a variety of optional performances.
Due to constraints we will not be participating in the 2023 Parade. We participate in the Tempe Fantasy of Lights Parade which falls on the Friday after Thanksgiving each year. Dancers ages 3-5 years old ride the float while dancers ages 6+ learn a routine and dance in front of the float.

Both of these performances are optional, but highly encouraged.
