“The safety of our students and staff is of utmost importance,” said Diana Byer, founder and artistic director, New York Theatre Ballet School. “We are hopeful we can open the doors to our studio in September, but classes may resume online pending further stay at home orders. Alternatively, we may offer a combination of in-person and Zoom classes, as we are doing safely and successfully this summer.”
