The Dance Hub has switched software

We have switched from MindBody to Wellness Living. You will be experiencing an easier to use interface as well as a dedicated phone app (ready in the next two weeks). Please bear with us while we finalize the switch. For signups or questions, please contact Eric Valinsky at

AD&M classes are now HYBRID

Classes marked VIRTUAL are still only available through Zoom. Masks are required for studio attendance for all students who are not fully vaccinated. Check this site periodically for updates.

Now that Santa Barbara County has reopened, The Dance Hub is pleased to announce that we will once again offer in-person classes at full capacity, albeit with precautions designed to keep students and instructors safe. These HYBRID classes will allow students to attend class either in person at the studio or online via Zoom.

We have put a number of practices into effect, as explained below, including following Board of Health guidelines for COVID-19 mitigation. Barres will be wiped down with anti-viral wipes after each class. State of the art air purifiers have been installed. The floor, doorknobs, light switches, power buttons, sound system sliders, trash cans, bathroom, etc. will be sanitized periodically. In addition, for students who are not fully vaccinated (last shot plus 14), masks must be worn at all times while inside The Dance Hub.

As is always the case with The Dance Hub, this is a work in progress and our procedures and practices are subject to change. We welcome your questions and suggestions.

In-studio Class Attendance

At The Dance Hub, we understand that this is a time of transition. Until herd immunity is achieved, TDH will be taking precautions to keep our students and instructors safe and comfortable. We realize that this is a shifting landscape and the guidelines below are subject to change. We are committed to keeping this webpage up to date. For now, the following procedures apply:

  1. If you are interested in attending a class in person, please contact the instructor at least 48 hours in advance. In-studio class size will be limited, so make sure you have instructor approval before arriving at the studio. Contact Carrie Diamond ( for ballet, Susan Alexander ( for modern, or Vivian Leilani Shay ( for theatre jazz.
  2. All students must sign up and pay online before class. No cash or checks will be accepted at the studio.
  3. When you arrive for your first class, you must fill out and sign an addendum to the class waiver. If you’d prefer to print and fill out the waiver ahead of time, the waiver can be downloaded here.
  4. Vaccinated students should bring in their vaccination card or a copy to show to the instructor and sign a vaccination affirmation. Otherwise you will need to wear a mask.
  5. Unvaccinated students or those who have not signed a vaccination affirmation must keep social distance and wear a mask at all times, including in the lobby and bathroom.
  6. In addition, students must follow sanitary practices to mitigate spreading the virus. We encourage students to wash their hands for 30 seconds when they arrive at the studio or use the hand sanitizer provided. This includes sanitizing one’s hands after using the bathroom.
  7. Students may dance in bare feet for modern class but will need to wipe their feet with an anti-viral wipe before class. In addition, any approved dance shoes should also be wiped if they have been worn outside.

If you are uncomfortable with any of the provisions above, you may attend class virtually via Zoom. If you need help getting started with virtual classes, see more information here.

I love that the community at The Dance Hub consists of local dancers from a wide range of ages. Everyone is so welcoming and warm. Taking class is often the highlight of my day, and it is a great way to feel a sense of community right now.
