Delta Variant Update

Wednesday, July 21, 2021
The Delta Variant has come to Santa Barbara and The Dance Hub has once again revised our in-studio attendance policies. Until further notice, we will require full vaccination (shots + 2 weeks) to attend class in-studio. If you are a new student, you must bring in your vaccination card and sign an affidavit. If you are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated, we welcome you to take our VIRTUAL classes on Zoom. We remain committed to making The Dance Hub a safe place to dance.

The Hybrid Dance Hub

Most of The Dance Hub’s classes are now hybrid. If you are fully vaccinated, you will be able to sign up either for a VIRTUAL or IN STUDIO version of the class. If you are unvaccinated or not fully vaccinated, you will need to sign up for a VIRTUAL version. Thanks to our new Wellness Living software, we are making it easier to attend virtual classes on Zoom. You will be sent a Zoom link at sign up and as a reminder. You will also be able to access this link from the Wellness Living Website or phone app. See more information here. Please bear with us while we make the transition finalize the switch. If you have any questions, please contact Eric Valinsky at

Please note that a few of our classes are IN STUDIO or VIRTUAL only, but most are available in both formats.
