Covid-19 precautions, policies and procedures
Currently being reviewed and updated as summer goes on
LOBBY IS CURRENTLY CLOSED AS A "WAITING ROOM." THERE IS NO WAITING IN THE LOBBY THE ENTIRE TIME FOR YOUR DANCER. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COME IN TO DROP THEM OFF, PICK UP, PEEK IN A FEW MINUTES OF CLASS, PURCHASE ITEMS, VISIT THE FRONT DESK TO PAY OR WITH QUESTIONS...BUT WE CANNOT HAVE A JAM PACKED FULL LOBBY WITH PARENTS AND SIBLINGS WAITING DURING CLASSES. THANK YOU!
Studio cleaning and sanitizing
We are proud to have always maintained a clean environment (pre-COVID!) - it is something we are consistently complimented on when people visit our studio - BEFORE THE PANDEMIC! We didn't need pandemic to encourage us to have a clean environment :) Of course now we are wiping things down much more often and are proud of the protocol we have followed since reopening in June 2020.
As of June 2021, masks are optional for all adults AND STUDENTS who are vaccinated.
Anyone who is NOT vaccinated must wear a mask - just like every other public place you go to right now.
When socially distancing is able to be followed in our 3-5 year old classes, we will allow them to take their mask off and put in their prop box. However, that is the only time as of this printing (June 21, 2021) that we are comfortable having them not wear masks. The first few weeks of summer will be a great time for us to continue to re-evaluate masks in the studio. To give you a peak into our side and our perspective - if we want to hold classes where kids are able to 100% of the time be socially distanced in an indoor space, we have to lower our class capacity tremendously. As well as change our class format and not run class in a way we normally would and how we feel is most beneficial in dance education - going across the floor, etc.
Water fountain, microwave, fridge
The water fountain is still closed. Please bring your own water. The microwave and refrigerator are available to dancers who are here for 3 or more hours. Dancers eating in the studio need to do so in appropriate, designated areas. If we see dancers not respecting this, we will go back to no food in the studio. Since it's summer, a great idea is to go outside to eat!
We are currently looking for some second hand picnic tables if anyone has any they are selling or getting rid of! We were going to purchase one or two new ones, but it's an additional cost during what is still a challenging time we are catching up from.
