We carefully follow government recommendations to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all students and teachers at our facility with an area of 5,000 square feet. We have enough space for supporting the principles of social distancing while on the dance floor. We clean and disinfect our facility between all classes to ensure the safety of our customers.
MBS does its best to create a safe environment for its students. This Health and Safety Plan does not express any guarantees, promises or representations, or does not represent 100% effectiveness against the spread of the disease. It aims to complement the guidelines set forth by the CDC with state and federal authorities, and can be as effective as a formal guide combined with a public willingness to follow.
