Here’s how we are keeping you safe

Dance Station is excited to reopen and bring the joy of dance back to our community.

We now offer virtual lessons, where you can learn at home over an internet link with your instructor.

At the studio, we have resumed in-person lessons for singles and couples. For the health and safety of our students and teachers, we have implemented the following policies that meet or exceed the governor’s Covid-19 guidelines:

  • Students and teachers should be masked for the entire lesson. Students decide how much contact, if any, they would like with their teacher.
  • Students should remove their street shoes at the door.
  • Teachers and students should wash their hands thoroughly before and after the lesson. Hand sanitizer is also available throughout the studio.
  • We allow only one lesson at a time, so students and their teacher have the floor to themselves.
  • Teachers perform a cleaning between each lesson.
  • Students who are not feeling well for any reason are encouraged to stay home. We are happy to reschedule your lesson!
  • We ask that students stay away from the studio for 14 days after: traveling; attending a large gathering; coming into contact with someone who has Covid-19; or otherwise being at heightened risk of exposure.

If for any reason you cannot comply with our in-studio policies, we encourage you to consider virtual lessons. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you when these restrictions are no longer in effect.

We are grateful for the support, dedication and encouragement of our dance friends and family.

On a Thanksgiving like no other, I am profoundly thankful for the Dance Station community

Lawrence and Nancy Leverenz will perform in our upcoming virtual showcase.

What a year this has been! “Unprecedented” doesn’t begin to describe it.

Today, our dance world is on hiatus. Social dancing, parties, competitions … all are off for the foreseeable future. Many lives and livelihoods in our community have been upended. And yet our dance community still thrives. We have come together and supported one another. We are dancing online — and soon Dance Station will debut its first-ever “virtual” student showcase that you’ll be able to view at home. Our lives continue to be filled, and even fulfilled, by our love and engagement in dance.

In these times I have found resilience to be my savior. But it isn’t something I derived from myself. Rather, it comes from the strength and generosity of my dear community. When I saw no light at the end of the tunnel during our spring shutdown, and experienced the darkness and uncertainty of when or even whether the studio would reopen, it was my students, my friends, and my family that provided the strength and courage to proceed.

As I write this, the Dance Station is closed once again. But this time the territory and experience are more familiar and less foreboding. I don’t know what the coming months will look like, or what struggles lie ahead. But I do know that the strength, love, generosity, and resilience of our community — of you, my most dear friends and family — will see us through.

Please hold fast the connections of our community. Call a friend, extend help, offer a listening ear. It is the spreading web of our people and our dancers that has made Dance Station successful, and will ensure its survival.

My gratitude to all of you runs deeper every year, but it is especially profound this year. I am certain times will change and will find us all dancing together again. Thank you for providing the resilience to keep me moving forward. I wish you and yours a safe and special holiday.

— Lawrence Black

Dance Station will be reopening soon!

The floor is down and the mirrors are up in our new studio space — in the opposite corner of the Solana Center from our former space.

We hope to reopen the studio very soon, but we are waiting on the necessary inspections before we can set a date.

Meanwhile, please keep checking here on the blog for the latest information.

You may also call us at (505) 989-9788 for updates.

Thanks for your patience, and we look forward to welcoming you to the new Dance Station soon.
