WHEN YOUR CHILD ARRIVES TO DANCE THERE ARE NEW PROTOCOLS THAT EVERYONE MUST FOLLOW:
To keep our students, faculty and staff safe requires us to have the least amount of people inside our studio. The waiting/lobby area is temporarily closed due to the new Covid-19 protocols. This means that no parents will be allowed in the waiting area/lobby with the exception of parents of toddlers for drop off and pick up only. We will have a hallway monitor to make sure your child gets safely into their classroom. For those parents who want to view your child in the classroom, we are working on options so that you can watch class on your device. We will update you once this is finalized.
All students must arrive with a mask on 5 minutes before their class starts. All students must come to the studio fully dressed in their dance attire and ready to dance. Students will get a temperature check upon entry; sanitize their hands; place their personal items in the hallway cubbies provided for each dance room; students will enter the classroom and place their dance bag in their own spot and take their place social distanced in a 6’ by 6’ foot dance area. Classes will start and end on a staggered schedule so that the faculty and staff can sanitize the dance room and the cubbies and restrooms in between classes; we will have a hallway monitor (with a mask on) that will see that your child will get safely into her/his class.
Parents must pick up their child on time. Parents must wear a mask upon entry to the building. Students will be dismissed by the studio monitor and can be picked up by their parents in the building vestibules on the first floor and the second floor. We have staggered class times to avoid congestion in the building during dismissal.
