Please read the following steps we are taking so we are in suit with the guidelines laid out by the Government of New Brunswick during Covid-19. 

PMDS Inc. will be doing the following every day in order to keep dancers and staff safe: 

  • Disinfect the dance studio multiple times a day with medical grad cleaning solution. This will include, doorknobs, ballet barres, all Pilates equipment, studio, entrance and bathroom floors and other surfaced touched by staff or dancers. 
  • When possible have the same group of dancers in the studio per three hr. blocks. 
  • Provide a hand sanitizer station.
