Fairfield Starz Dance

IMPORTANT UPDATE (December 29, 2020): 

After much consideration regarding the health and safety of our participants and staff, we have made the decision to move the start date of Winter A classes back one week to the week of January 11.

We are looking into each individual program to determine if we are able to extend the session by one week. If not, participants will be compensated for the missed class/classes in the form of an activity voucher.
