Update Regarding Studio West and The Beat Box’s Plans Due to COVID-19

We would like to share our plans relating to the state-wide closure of all schools from March 16 through the end of the 2019-2020 school year.  Normal classes at Studio West occurred through March 14, 2020, but all classes and events relating to our regular school-year session have now been cancelled through June 2020.  Studio West will move to an all-online class model until it is safe to resume in-person group activities.  Families are NOT automatically enrolled in the online model, but can choose to sign up for it if they would like to do so.  For full details regarding the cancellation of our 2019-2020 session, please read our letter to our families and staff by clicking HERE.  Administrative staff will work remotely until the lift of the stay-at-home order, answering any voicemail and email inquiries you may have.  Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times and we hope you all continue to stay healthy.
