IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING COVID-19

ANNOUNCEMENT


After reflection on how the situation regarding Covid-19 has escalated, I have decided to close Urbanity’s physical location until further notice. However, movement can be crucial to emotional, physical, and mental health at a time like this, so we are going to do our best to keep you moving through online videos catered to your level and genres.

We know this can’t make up for your in-person classes at Urbanity. Therefore, in addition to the online videos, all Urbanity students will be receiving 2 makeups PLUS 1 free workshop in each genre you study here. Those will be scheduled after the emphasis of social distancing has subsided.

The following classes will be fully accessible via online videos and available to purchase at the drop-in rate:

  • Spin Technique by Jessica
  • Mambo Shines by Jessica
  • Stretch & Mindful Movement by Kate
  • Salsa Shines by Jorge
  • Cha Cha Shines by Jorge
  • Bachata Shines by JoJo

In regards to all partner-work based classes, (since most might not have a partner to practice with) we will be sending videos focusing more on individual technique to help elevate you as a dancer and even better prepare you for those makeups and workshops in the future!

Videos will not be live or released based off class time & day. Registered students will receive their videos as they are ready via email.

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.
