Notes about In-Person Programs:

As of July 1, 2021, ACT will no longer require those entering our studio to wear face coverings, in accordance with the lifting of the MDHHS Gatherings and Face Coverings Emergency Order. However, the safety of ACT participants, guests, and staff are still our top priority.  Face coverings, although optional, are still welcomed and encouraged.  We have masks on-site for any individual that requests one.  We will still ask that individuals with a fever, and those not feeling well, do not enter the studio.  Instead, please call an ACT staff person to let them know that you will be absent.  We will continue our sanitizing and cleaning procedures to maintain the safety of our students, teaching artists, volunteers, and staff, and we will employ physical distancing measures as we are able.
