BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Boca-area dance community is outraged by the apparent actions of Stars Dance Studio which operates in Boca Raton and Miami. The studio, according to those familiar with the situation, held a huge party this weekend in Boca Raton where masks were not required.

This is a violation of Palm Beach County executive order.

A woman claiming to be an owner of Stars Dance Studio hung up on BocaNewsNow.com when called Sunday afternoon for comment.

Instagram videos and photos provided to BocaNewsNow.com, and later verified as remaining online, seem to depict a large party without masks — all captioned as “23 hours ago.” In a video above, a man is seen entering a party with a mask, but promptly removes it in the close proximity of several other people as children cheer. Several photos show the same man posing with what appears to be young, unrelated children. No one is wearing a facial covering.

Stars Dance Studio posted several photos of a party this weekend (weekend of Sept. 12, 2020) where masks were not worn. A woman claiming to be an owner hung up on BocaNewsNow.com when asked for comment.

BocaNewsNow.com reached out to dance teachers across the region — all of whom say that they are aware of Stars running classes without masks. BocaNewsNow.com has not independently confirmed the claim. The owner refused to answer questions.

Other dance studio owners and employees say it’s frustrating to lose business as they work to comply with COVID-19 rules, only to watch Stars Dance Studio allegedly disregarding local orders in effect. They also point to the safety of the children.

There are no complaints — as of Sunday afternoon — against Stars Dance Studio on the Palm Beach County COVID Education and Compliance dashboard, but we are told that complaints were filed with the City of Boca Raton and Palm Beach County.

We’ll update this story if Stars Dance Studio reconsiders hanging up on us and opts to respond with a statement.
