This plan will be evaluated every two weeks to determine the feasibility of increasing the capacity in the studios, and the extension of opening hours to evenings and/or weekends.
Please note that in order to adhere to the physical distancing recommendations of our Health Authority, the maximum capacity of the studios for the foreseeable future has been assessed as:
Renters that are currently booked and are not able to meet these guidelines will not incur cancellation fees. Please advise if this is the case so that we can release your bookings.
New Safety Protocols

Thank you for your patience and support in these unprecedented and very difficult times, as we work to find a way to navigate our new reality.
Our staff continue to work remotely from home – please stay in touch: follow us on social media for further information and updates. We will get through this and come together once again to celebrate the art form we love!
