In difficult times, we can find strength in supporting each other.

While we navigate the current crisis, we will be:

  • Conducting a GoFundMe for our Artists - 100% of it goes to the ARTISTS.  Not PMT.

  • Selling PMT Bonds - Purchase a $75.00 bond & receive $100.00 back when we re-open.  Good towards classes & rentals!

  • Pay It Forward Program - Purchase a class card, space or any time at PMT, and if you do not want it, we will gift it in your name to someone deeply affected by this crisis.

  • FREE ONLINE CLASSES - Throughout this crisis, we will be offering free & low cost classes for everyone.  Follow us on IG - @pmthouseofdance - for more info.

We want to urge everyone to take care of yourself, your friends and family.  You are all advised to stay home.  If you decide to venture out, practice social distancing (6 feet of space between you and another), wash hands and avoid crowds.  Please consult medical professionals and your local government for more guidance.  To beat this, we need to work together.  When thinking of your own needs, please also consider those who may be less fortunate than yourself.  

This is an unprecedented situation.  We are handling the situation as it comes. Without further guidance from NYC and the Mayor's Office, we cannot provide more solid time tables until you they do so.

Thus, until further notice, please note the following:

Classes and Workshops

Free online classes are currently available online.

Enjoy FREE classes throughout this crisis.

Cancellations: 

  • ALL CLASSES are canceled until further notice. We are in PHASE 4 of the re-opening process.  No time table has been provided as of yet.

Postponements:

Class, Membership & Workshop Info & Policy:

  • Performance Workshop Students: Those who are choosing not to continue with the workshop shall be issued a credit for the amount of classes remaining on their purchase. Should we not be able to resume the Spring Season, all credits shall be pushed to a future season of the students' choice (or any other purchase).

Rentals

In accordance with NY State Mandates, we will be closed for all rentals until further notice.

Policy on Canceled Space Reservations:

  • If you made a reservation by 3/15/2020, a credit, foor towards future use at PMT, shall be given for any cancellations made due to the current situation.  Short notice cancellations shall be waived.

  • If you made a reservation on or after 3/16/2020, the normal cancellation policies shall be applied EXCEPT in the instance that state issued mandates change OR you are sick and choose to stay home.  

  • Information on Credits: Credits are good towards future use at PMT Dance Studio. They are also transferable (you may gift them).  They do not expire.

How to obtain your credit for space cancellations:

  • All requests must be sent via email to pmthouseofdance@gmail.com.  Due to the higher than usual volume of emails, please allow 24-48 hours for a response.

Policy on Refunds

Given the enormity of requests, we cannot issue refunds.  Our business would not remain sustainable, and in consideration of our faculty, staff and the hundreds that rely on our space, we have a responsibility to take the necessary steps to maintain operations.  Additionally, this is shared struggle.  We are all taking a pause in normal activities.  This pause is not exclusive to us.  The moment the crisis passes, we plan to quickly resume operations.  

The arts community needs your support now more than ever.  Thousands of artists are scrambling to find new ways to earn a meal.  PMT, and other studios like ours, are needed for the community to survive and heal.  Provisions for the arts are not provided in any relief measure.  We rely on the compassion of those who enjoy our artistry to support us.

Response Times

We are working around the clock to stay on top of this situation.  We are experiencing an higher than usual volume of emails and calls.  Please allow time for responses.  They may take up 48 hours.  

We thank you for your understanding and support. Take care of yourselves and each other.
