Prospective in-person students: please read our Covid safety protocol


After a brief closure of our physical locations at the height of the pandemic, in-person classes have fully resumed in New York and Los Angeles.

The health and safety of our staff and students is our utmost priority, and we have implemented additional health & safety policies since reopening. Read on and do not hesitate to contact if you have any questions or concerns!

In-person classes are reserved for fully vaccinated students so that it is safe to conduct the class in as ‘normal’ a fashion as possible. Please note that class capacity remains the same as before the pandemic (maximum 10 students per class) and that mask wearing is recommended but not required in all areas of the school. Unvaccinated students, or those who prefer to remain remote, are encouraged to take online classes!

You’ll find both online and in-person class options listed on the New York and Los Angeles group class pages.

* We reserve the right to temporarily move in-person classes online at any point if deemed necessary.

Covid Safety


  • All Coucou staff are required to be fully vaccinated per CDC guidelines before working in our New York or Los Angeles locations.
  • We have implemented an increased cleaning schedule at both locations. All common areas will be cleaned daily. Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes will be widely available to staff and students throughout the space.
  • Each classroom will be equipped with an air purifier with HEPA filter.
  • If at any point you change your mind about attending an in-person class, you will have the option of transferring to an online class for a small fee.


  • Students must be fully vaccinated per CDC guidelines to attend in-person classes. Students will be required to provide proof of vaccination before their first in-person class. No non-medical exemptions will be allowed.
  • Students should not come to class if they are sick or experiencing symptoms consistent with COVID-19. They should stay home and request a recording of the lesson they missed from our Student Support team.
  • If you test positive for Covid in the course of your in-person class, please let us know as soon as possible so we can notify your classmates. You will be able to resume your in-person class when you are considered no longer contagious as per CDC guidelines.
