COVID-19 POLICY

  • Staff will be stationed at the doors checking temperatures with a no-contact thermometer and sending students to class. Students with a temperature at or above 100.4 will not be allowed to enter. We have to take all temperatures so please be ten minutes early.

  • All staff, as well as everyone entering the studio, will be required to wear a mask during their time in the studio.  The only exception being our class of two, three, and four year olds. Make sure you put a few clean masks in dance bag just in case.  

  • For the time being, our lobby will remain closed. This is to help increase the social distancing capability for students and instructors. One parent may enter with two year olds only. 

  • Upon entering the Studio, all students will be asked to use the provided hand sanitizers.  

  • It is our goal to keep students safe and socially distant, while not making them feel uncomfortable, stressed, or anxious. We will designate each dancer an area with brightly colored tape, hula hoops, or other fun props, and dancers will have assigned spots so we can contact trace.

  • Instruction will be conducted using primarily verbal commands vs hands-on correction or spotting techniques. 

  • At the end of class, dancers will be provided hand sanitizer and remain socially distanced until called to the door to exit when a parent or guardian arrives.

  • The water fountain in the lobby will not be operational, so we encourage dancers to bring a water bottle in their dance bag.  We will not permit drinks from fast food restaurants in the dance rooms.  They are too easily spilled or accidentally shared.

  • Surfaces in the dance rooms will be sprayed and wiped down between each age group and the entire studio sanitized and wiped down at the end of each day.  

  • Each age group will remain in the same room for all classes, with the instructors moving from room to room.

  • If a student is not feeling well, please do not bring them to the studio.  We will have an online zoom link to each class in your parent portal. Students can log in and watch or participate in class from home.

  • If you have had known exposure to covid or develop covid related symptoms, please notify the studio immediately so we can follow the correct protocols. Providing prompt notification is essential so we can ensure the safety of our staff and other dancers. 

  • We will communicate via email regarding any and all changes throughout the dance year, so be sure we have a current email address on file. You can update this in your parent portal.
