In this class series, join Nisaa for a deep dive into this less tangible, but no less important, side of Egyptian belly dance. Visit here for details and registration!
In-Studio Class Update as of May 16, 2021
Please note that as in-studio classes resume, COVID-19 safety precautions remain in effect, including mandatory masks in class (even for those who are fully vaccinated). Nisaa is also strongly encouraging students to return to in-studio classes ONLY AFTER RECEIVING A COVID-19 VACCINATION. Although the CDC has indicated that fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to wear masks, for the time being, Nisaa has decided to continue to require masks in the studio. Although the vaccines are very effective at preventing COVID-19 illness and reducing the risk of transmission, the risk is not zero. We are still learning how effective the vaccines are against new variants of the virus, and we are still learning how well the vaccines protect individuals with weakened immune systems. Many of your classmates have young children who are not yet able to receive the vaccine, and some have at-risk loved ones who cannot receive it. For all of these reasons, let’s err on the side of caution and continue to wear our masks, at least for a little while longer. You can read the COVID-19 safety precautions here. The COVID-19 safety precautions are NON-NEGOTIABLE. Let's work together to keep each other safe!
