Together Again - In Person Or Online!

We can’t wait to dance and play music with you! We are now offering limited in-person classes, and online classes are still available for those who want to join the fun from home.

New Classes Start June 21

Summer Classes Begin the Week of June 21

Join us for our summer session of music and dance and movement classes! Some classes will continue to meet online, and in-person classes are available in Lincoln Park and Lincoln Square – including our Parking Lot Pop-Up tent.

Health & Safety Measures - Together, In Tune

While we are excited to make music together in person again, we take the health and safety of our community very seriously. Our initial roll out of in-person classes will be very small and will also utilize the outdoor classroom tent, located in our parking lot just south of our Lincoln Square campus.
