COVID-19: Are there any changes at Kinetic Arts Center?

Kinetic Arts Center thrives on giggles. However, COVID-19 (Coronavirus) is no laughing matter. Here is a great resource from the CDC on how to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

At the moment, there are no changes to our class nor our performance schedule. Please check in regularly for the most up-to-date information.

What is Kinetic Arts Center doing to prevent the spread?
We encourage anyone exhibiting ANY symptoms of illness to stay home. Please notify us in the event you fall ill (call us at 510-444-4800 or email us at and we will cancel your class reservation. You will not lose the class credit and you may use it toward a future visit. Please let us know if you need to reschedule tickets to an upcoming performance – we are happy to help! Thanks so much for helping us all stay healthy!

We encourage all of our students to wash their hands with soap and water frequently (before and after class). Please try to avoid touching your face during training times.

We are taking extra care in the cleaning and sanitation of our facility and equipment.

We wish you health and calm during what is a stressful time for so many. We look forward to seeing you in your regularly scheduled classes and will post any updates as needed.
