Coronavirus Update From Board and TAC Chairs

By now, most of you are aware of the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) and its current impact both globally and locally. As an organization, we are taking this outbreak seriously and are closely monitoring the impact it may have on regional, national and international events.

Our primary concern is the health and wellbeing of our members and their families.

Studio owners and instructors are urged to monitor local events and to stay vigilant in providing a safe environment for themselves, their students and families.
