WELCOME BACK!

Beginning Wednesday, June 9th, we will resume our in-person classes without any capacity restrictions. This is your official invitation to join us on the dance floor, and all are welcome! 

Masks will be required in all common spaces, hallways, the lobby, and bathrooms until September 2021. Recent CDC guidance suggests fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing. However, because we are unable to determine who is vaccinated, we strongly recommend wearing a mask in the studio to prevent the spread of COVID, and to protect the health and safety of yourself and those around you.

There are now two single person locking accessible restroom stalls available for use. Please refrain from using the adjoining stalls.

KanKouran’s weekly classes will continue to provide instruction in the authentic dance styles of select West African cultural groups, and include a warm-up and breakdown of dance steps, followed by the execution of the movements accompanied by the drums.

You have the option of attending class virtually or in person. Although not required, and regardless of the option you choose, we encourage participants to continue to register and pay for class online.

TO REGISTER AND PAY FOR CLASSES, PLEASE VISIT www.facebook.com/kankouran.

Thank you for your patience, support, and participation as we dance our way through these challenging times.
