COVID-19 Precautions for our Arthur Murray Hawai'i Ohana
We are taking the safety and well being of all of our students and instructors seriously as we all do our part to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The staff at Arthur Murray Dance Centers Hawai'i have been following the guidelines provided to us by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as guidance from the State and City governments and departments of health.
One of our top priorities is to ensure that our studio is maintained and disinfected to protect our instructors and students coming in for in-person dance lessons. Our staff have been in contact with every student to review a series of options, including the opportunity to do virtual dance lessons via video conferencing. We understand how important dance is to each of you, and encourage you to continue connecting with dance here in the safety of the studio as well as in the comfort of your homes. Your living room, lanai, garage, and yard can be wonderful places to “turn up the speaker” and dance to your favorite music!
We miss seeing you in person, and look forward to having you in the studio. Until then, we wish each of you remain safe and well.
