  • Dancers are expected to adhere to instructions provided with respect to social distancing.

  • We are currently welcoming our Twinkle Baby & Twinkle Star parents in our lobby to ease back-to-dance anxieties. These parents who choose to stay in the lobby must wear a mask in accordance with the city mask mandate. Thank you for helping us follow this Shawnee ordinance.
