- Updates for COVID recovery / studio closures and reopening plans:
–MBT’s studios in Gaithersburg and Clarksburg will begin to reopen in a limited capacity according to state/county guidance. We will manage this transition in a slow, careful manner, prioritizing the safety of our families and staff. Several new health and safety protocols will be in place including smaller class sizes to meet physical distancing guidelines. Limited camps will start to return to the studio on June 22, and most camps will follow by July 6. Evening/Saturday classes will return to the studio starting July 6, and will be offered virtually until then.
–The DREAMS online camps, as well as several evening/Saturday classes, will be offered all summer, via Zoom, regardless of when the studio reopens.
–If you are currently registered into a camp/intensive/class, and would like to switch from an In-Studio to a Virtual option or a Virtual option to an In-Studio option, please call the studio.
–MBT’s website (www.mbtdance.org) has been updated with all virtual options.
