ENCORE is thinking of each of you in this time, keeping you in our hearts and lifting you up in love and light! Blessings!
Thank you for allowing us to come into your home and continue to work with your amazing and talented kids! The students of ENCORE along with your parent support has allowed us to continue to educate, support and love your children! We all know that we are living in a time unlike we have ever seen, nothing is normal and everything seems to have an extra learning curve to it. We thank you for rising up with us and stepping up to the challenge of navigating the arts for how it has to look like right now.
After months of being on zoom only classes, ENCORE is proud to announce that we are re-opening this Monday, June 8th to BOTH zoom online and live classes at the same time. This will be for the remainder of our season ending on June 20th. We have spent the last two weeks implementing procedures that go above and beyond the CDC requirements for the safety of our students.
Please note before we dive into our location procedure changes that any/all students are still welcome to continue to join us via zoom online classes! Not everyone is ready to return and that's okay! ENCORE will meet you where you are comfortable and we will get through this time together.

We have re-arranged our space to have four different entrance/exits that are clearly marked from the outside of our space. We have a white board that will direct you to your appropriate studio space, this allowing us to reduce the number of patrons in our space and maintain social distancing through out our entire studio. Click Here for a visual.
At each entrance your instructor will meet you with our screening questions inquiring if you have had any respiratory/fever issues and than take your temperature before allowing you to enter. (Students with more than one class will receive a 'pass' sticker so they can travel from one class to another without being screened again)
Each space has a 'sanitation station' that students are required to disinfect their hands.
We have than marked off 6' by 6' squares in all classrooms and ask that students bring a water bottle and re-main in that space while in class. Social distancing is required in all classes & activities.
Our instructors will be wearing a mask and we encourage students to do the same if they chose.
Additionally we have implemented that all equipment will be sanitized between each class/use, no partnering will be allowed & reduced class size!
Online Zoom & Live Group Classes
Click Here: See Our Video on How it Works!
Our classrooms are fully equipped for zoom online and live group classes at the same time! We have upgraded our systems with 55" tv monitors in each room so that instructors can see everyone clearly at the same time.
ALL Classes will remain at the day/time their zoom class is listed online.
Tips to Improve Your Re-Opening Experience
Have your student avoid the sun, wearing a hat or being in a hot car so that their temperature readings are accurate.
Bring water bottles (No water fountains are allowed in phase 1) We offer water bottles for $1; pick up a water bottle from the front lobby fridge and place money in drop box by front lobby desk
Limit bathroom use by going at home before coming
Parents can use the front lobby bathroom, signing into the tracking sheet on the front desk is required.
No sharing of food or drinks
Students with multiple classes can move from one space to another without going outside by wearing a sticker pass.
Know the exits for your students studio space as students 9yrs & younger only can be released to a parent.
Your mental and physical health is our highest priority! ENCORE knows that motion creates positive emotion and we are excited to get your students moving!
