Q: How big are the classes?
A: Jitterbug’s classrooms can hold up to 6 dancers per class. We encourage you to register early to ensure your spot. Our Workshops & Intensives will be held at Our Town Theatre in Oakland, and can accommodate up to 30 students.

Q: What’s your wellness policy?
A: The safety of our instructors and students are extremely important to us. If you’re not feeling well, please stay home. We encourage you to follow the most current CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. We will be disinfecting our studio after every class. Masking before, during, and after class is optional for both instructors and students.

Q: What sort of body type is ideal for Jitterbug’s classes?
A: Any and all body styles and types are welcome here! Please let your teacher know if you have an injury or physical limitation.

Q: What sort of attire do I need to wear to class?
A: Unless the instructor indicates otherwise, you can simply wear clothing that’s comfortable and easy to move in. Footwear depends on the style of movement, and the teacher will let you know what you need! We highly recommend Discount Dance Supply for purchasing affordable dance attire and footwear.

Q: When should I arrive for class?
A: We recommend arriving 10-15 minutes before the start of class to check-in, warm up and grab water if you need it.

Q: I’m at the CurlyRed/Jitterbug Building, how do I get inside?
A: Our entrance is the door off of the alley to the right of the front of the building.

Q: Where do I park?
A: There’s ample 2-hour street parking on 2nd and Alder Streets, and the Oakland Town Parking Lot is right across the street.

Q: What about competitions and performances?
A: At Jitterbug, our emphasis is learning the technique and artistry of dance. With that in mind, we will not be participating in dance competitions or holding performances or recitals for our dancers. That being said, there will be opportunities for parents and family members to attend Open Marley Nights to see what our students are learning, depending on the interest of the class.
