As our youngest students are now eligible to be vaccinated, masks are encouraged but not required at Aspire. Faculty and staff will continue to wear masks. 

Ongoing COVID-19 precautions include:  

  • Classes restructured for no-contact. 

  • Limited class sizes to ensure safe, distanced dancing and theatre activities.

  • Heightened cleaning protocols to disinfect high-touch areas. 

  • Fully vaccinated faculty and staff.

  • Updated HVAC systems for better airflow.

Studio Policies

Students are expected to arrive a few minutes before class in order to be ready at class time. Tardiness over 10 minutes may result in a dancer not being allowed to participate. Cell phones are discouraged in the studio. No video or photography is permitted in the studio without permission of the teacher and any other students visible.

Is it a snowday?

If Seattle Public Schools are closed for inclement weather, Aspire will be closed for the day and cancel all classes as well. If Seattle Public Schools start late or on Saturdays, we will assess for the safety of our faculty, staff, and students and post on website and social media accounts as soon as possible.
