COVID-19 UPDATE AND ACROBATICS CLASSES: Like all Twirl 2021-22 dance classes, Twirl acrobatic classes will have both a virtual and in-person option until the CDC changes COVID protocols. Unless the CDC and PA Dept. of Health relax social distancing requirements, in-person acrobatic students will be socially distanced by at least 6 feet in their own designated square of mat space. If a common wedge mat is used for skills, it will be sanitized between student uses. All students, including students who are taking acrobatics virtually from home, will work on a progression of skills according to the Acro Dance Teachers Association syllabus. A mat is not needed for in-home virtual acrobatic classes, but a space large enough to do a cartwheel is recommended. A blank wall or door is also a bonus, but not necessary, for practicing handstands during virtual home-based acrobatics classes. Until things change, Twirl plans to extend 2020-21 season safety protocols into the 2021-22 season.

(Classes run from September 10, 2020 to June 9, 2021. Enrollment will remain open through January 2021.)
