We hope that everyone is staying safe and we want all to know that the safety of our staff and students is a highest priority for us. We will continue to follow all practices, policies and procedures as recommended by the CDC. and other health organizations. By implementing safety measures against the Covid-19 virus, we feel we are providing a safe environment. You can access these safety requirements for students and staff HERE.

We are ever hopeful for our students to perform and although most theaters are closed through December 2020, we will continue to explore options for parents to see a presentation of the SSB students in December and again at the end of the year in May as has been the tradition of SSB since we first opened our doors.

We hope if you are not currently enrolled in SSB, that you will take advantage of a free trial class. We are sure we will be a good fit for all the dance needs of your child.
