COVID-19 Policies and Guidelines

3D is committed to keeping our dancers safe during this unprecedented time.  The studio will be taking a fact and data driven approach in regards to how to operate at the best capacity while also keeping the most recommended health procedures and guidelines at the forefront. Understanding that a virtual platform will be expected during this season, we look forward to providing exciting and unique content for our students.  Educational opportunities that extend past physical movement will keep dancers engaged and entertained no matter the location.  We thank our customers for their patience and understanding as we switch from in-person to virtual platforms as necessary.


    • 3D Virtual Platform: In the event that 3D classes must move to a ZOOM platform, all class levels and styles will be available for dancers to participate.  In addition, the 3D Virtual Library is available for all dancers to continue their training with various options.

    • 3D Mask Policy: 3D must adhere to the Tuscaloosa Mask Ordinance.  All dancers ages 8+ must wear masks.  Any parents/guardians that must enter the building must also wear a mask; however, there isn’t any loitering as the lobby closed.  All dancers are encouraged to wear masks upon entrance/exit and during classes.  


3D COVID19 Safety Procedures: 

    • All studios have been blocked off into grids to allow social distancing.
