In light of Covid-19 we are following all safety and health protocols as we return back to the studio for dance classes! We know this is a difficult time and want to reassure all our dance families that the safety of our dancers, staff, and families is our first priority! We are implementing the following health and safety protocols so that we can all return to dance safely:
practicing physical distancing in common areas as well as our dance studios by providing clear markings and signage for students.
increasing our daily cleaning and cleaning frequently touched surfaces more often.
having hand sanitizer readily available for all dancers and having dancers sanitize or wash their hands when entering the building and prior to joining class.
having anyone entering the building wear face coverings (masks) when entering and moving through common spaces (dancers will then remove their masks for the duration of their dance classes)
limiting our class sizes to ensure social distancing.
What To Expect This season Due To Covid-19:
~ Limited classes sizes to ensure physical distancing throughout class as well as in common areas.
~ Anyone entering the building will need to wear a face covering (mask) while moving through common areas. Dancers can remove masks once they are in classes for the duration of their class.
