IN-PERSON CLASSES HAVE RESUMED! Learn about our COVID-19 safety protocols for our physical locations.


Thank you for keeping up with us online over the past year, and for participating in our reopening survey! We are very excited to progressively resume in-person classes this summer in our New York and Los Angeles locations.

The health and safety of our staff and students is our utmost priority as we resume in-person classes, and we have implemented additional health & safety policies in preparation for reopening, which are in line with what most of you expressed in the survey. 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 will remain the same as before the pandemic (maximum 10 students per class) and that mask wearing will not be required in the classroom. 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.

* Please note that as of January 1st, we will require students to have received the booster shot.

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 and high-touch surfaces will be cleaned after each use. 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.
  • For those who wish to wear a face mask in the classroom, optional clear face masks will be available for purchase for a small fee on site. These masks have a clear panel so that the mouth remains visible.
  • If at any point you change your mind about attending an in-person class, we would be happy to transfer you to an online class!


  • 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 to attend a make-up class in an online group. Our student support team can also send them a recording of the lesson they missed.
  • 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 need to show a negative test to resume your in-person class.
  • Students will participate in keeping our classrooms clean for their fellow students by wiping down their seat and table area at the end of class using disinfecting wipes provided by Coucou.
