Our focus is to create a safe environment for students and staff.

  • Drop off and pick up will happen outdoors in our parking lot area.

  • A contactless thermometer will be used to take temperature, as well as a verbal check in.

  • Staff members will not work if they are currently experiencing or have experienced any new symptoms consistent with COVID-19 within the last 72 hours.

  • Students may not attend classes/camps if they or a member of their household are showing any new symptoms consistent with COVID-19 now or within the last 72 hours.

  • All materials used in class will be sanitized ahead of time.

  • Students and staff will be masked during classes and we will have participants wash or sanitize hands between workshops or as we change activities.

  • Curriculum will be structured to allow for distancing.

  • Students staying for lunch will socially distance while eating (outdoors if available).

  • We will follow CDC and MDH guidelines for safety protocols and class sizes, and adjust as recommendations fluctuate.

Grade Level: YPC’s classes and camps are designed for the grade your child is enrolled in during the 2020-2021 school year. We understand some students may thrive in a group older or younger than their designated peer group. However, our grade ranges are strict so that teaching artists can tailor their lesson plans and ensure the best possible classroom experience for all participants.

Location: Classes are held at our office/rehearsal space: 641 Fairview Ave. N, St. Paul, MN 55104 Suite 191. We’re located in St. Paul Midway just off I-94 and two blocks north of University Avenue between Prior and Fairview Avenues. Parking and bicycle racks are available in the front of the building.

Attire: Please dress for movement and and wear clean-soled shoes that tie or are held on with elastic (i.e. sneakers or dance shoes; no flip flops or sandals).

Food & Water: Lunch/Snacks are not provided. Please send a water bottle and lunch with your child if applicable.

 Refunds: Cancellations at least two weeks before the start of a class will receive a full refund less a $30 processing fee. Cancellations less than two weeks before the first class will not receive a refund.

 Class Cancellations: In the event a class is cancelled due to insufficient enrollment, you can choose a full refund or future class credit.

Additional details will be emailed on a rolling basis, prior to the first week of each camp.
