Out of an abundance of caution, TCFA will pause all classes, events, and open gallery days effective March 13. Our hope is to restart after April 13th once the school district resumes in-person classes. For our dance families that means providing the planned number of dance classes, and holding the dance recital. However, the actual timeline is unknown. We will re-evaluate on a regular basis and keep all of our attendees, students and families informed.
