Check your emails for information about our online classes until we can have our dancers back in studio - which is hopefully very soon!!
Until then, Zoom it is!
Due to NEW (as of this evening) Province wide restrictions, we will have to temporarily stop BVC in studio classes until the government releases new guidelines. 🙁 I am staying positive that this will happen quickly and we can get our dancers back in studio in no time. All Tuesday classes will ...be cancelled, I will be emailing parents of children who regularly come tomorrow, November 24th in the morning with further details. We are in this together
