Dear Chattanooga Ballet Families and Visitors,

Below is a detailed list of the protocols that Chattanooga Ballet will use to facilitate an opening that is as safe as possible. Please note that all students and families will be required to sign a Covid-19 related release. For all of our diligence, it is ultimately each family and student that must make the health choices that are best for them.

Note that the protocols include the wearing of masks. Requiring masks has been the source of controversy in some quarters. At the risk of sounding brusque, the use of masks is not a subject for debate. Masks are for the health of those around you and the health of the Chattanooga Ballet family is a primary concern. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
