*For Health/Wellness, physical distancing guidelines will be in effect, with a reduced class size. We encourage everyone to register with someone to learn with (sibling, spouse, family member, parent/kid or friend from your social bubble). If alone, we can match students with a partner that they would train with exclusively for the season. All JCC protocols for cleaning, hand sanitization, building entry, etc. will be followed.
