We are committed to creating a safe environment for our dancers, families, and staff. Please read these guidelines carefully and discuss them with your family before entering the studio.
Who is Allowed to Enter the Studio?
Parents of dancers who are 3-5 years of age are allowed to accompany their child into the building if necessary. Parents of young children must wear masks and social distance at all times.
All other parents, caregivers, and family members can bring dancers up to the studio door entrance to ensure a safe drop-off.
Taking Temperatures and Screening
All dancers will be screened and their temperatures taken upon entrance to class. If anyone displays a higher than normal temperature, they will be asked to go home, and may participate in their class virtually.
All dancers, staff, and caregivers are required to wear a mask at all times. We will have additional masks available for anyone who needs them. Teachers are cognizant of the difficulty of mask-wearing while dancing, and will adjust their classes accordingly to provide more breaks. Anyone who resists wearing a mask will not be permitted to participate in class.
Hand Washing & Sanitizing
Dancers and staff will be reminded and otherwise encouraged to sanitize and/or wash their hands frequently. Sanitizer and soap will be plentiful.
We will enforce social distancing inside and outside of the classroom. We ask that dancers and staff remind each other often to keep their distance! While dancing, we will continue distancing between people.
Staff will be asked to sanitize surfaces frequently. Staff will wipe down barres, mats, and any other surfaces they touched after class.
Health, Wellness, and Preventative Measures
We stress this every season, but it is important now more than ever. Eating healthy and getting exercise is a great way to boost our immune systems. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, get enough sleep, and treat yourself and others with kindness.
In Case of COVID Contact
If you or someone you come in contact with tests positive for Covid-19, please stay home and quarantine for at least 14 days before returning to class. Please also alert us immediately so that we can take the appropriate measures. In all cases, we will provide remote dance instruction so that you don’t have to miss a beat!
Yes, we know masks are hard to dance in. We as dancers are tough, and are known to persevere through inconvenient circumstances. Please carry that spirit into the coming months – The better our attitude, the better the experience for everyone!
