IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT [UPDATED JUl 14]

JULY ANNOUNCEMENT


REOPENING UPDATE:

Although the city has moved into Phase 4 of their Reopening Plan, Urbanity has decided to continue with our current virtual format for one more 4-week session. We are anxious to get back in class with you and fully reopen Urbanity, but we feel it’s important not to rush!

We want this process to be carried out in the safest way possible to protect both you and our staff; and since our dance styles require physical contact between individuals, we don’t feel it would be responsible of us to host in-person dance classes just yet even if it is at a lower capacity.

SO WHAT’S THE PLAN?

Private lessons for responsible, social distancing couples and individuals are available in person at the studio, and all group classes will be hosted virtually via Zoom throughout July.

In our August session, depending on Chicago’s progress with Covid, we plan to re-introduce in-person group classes at a reduced capacity for individual movement topics such as shines, body movement, technique, stretch, and choreo classes like Diva and Hip Hop.

Please feel free to message us with any questions you have via email. Your Urbanity family misses you dearly and hopes you all are safe and well.
